No pain? No gain. This applies to a good work ethic, and the Brazilian wax. Want a smooth bikini line for days? Well, this is the beauty treatment for you. All you have to do is lie back and try to relax. When you get off that chair, you’ll have gone from bear to barely there.
Our selection of waxing salons in the Gold Coast boast experienced wax therapists who care about your experience. Now that you’ve booked yourself in, here are a few things to remember before you take it all off.
Put down that razor. Don’t shave for at least two to three weeks before your appointment. Your hair should ideally be ¼ inches. You need something for the wax to grip.
Keep it loose. Rock up to your appointment in loose clothing. You want to avoid chafing, which can cause irritation. Any excuse to wear comfy pants and we’re in.
No pain? No gain. We’re not going to sugar coat this. Waxing hurts. There are a few things you can do to minimize the pain. Book your appointment a week after your time of the month. The closer you get to your actual period, the more sensitive your body becomes.
Scrub scrub scrub. Exfoliation is key to keeping those ingrown hair at bay. After waxing, dead skin cells can build up and trap hair. When these hairs are unable to grow up, they grow in. As in, ingrown hairs. To prevent this, exfoliate your bikini area to get rid of dead skin cells.
48 hours of rest is best. After your appointment, you may want to indulge in sun, sea and (dare we say it) sex. Although it may sound counterintuitive your Brazilian, you may want to abstain. Your skin is at its most sensitive – the top layers of the skin can be removed during the waxing process. This makes is susceptible to sunburn and outside bacteria. So keep it to yourself until the redness subsides.
