If you’ve never been brave enough to venture down the XXX rabbit hole, a Brazilian wax can conjure up pretty scary thoughts. After all, you are stripping down in front of a stranger, shedding your modesty and having hot wax applied to the most intimate regions of your body.
But we here at Bookwell are here to inform you that a Brazilian wax is totally not as terrifying as they make out in the movies. The Mornington Peninsula is home to some of the finest Brazilian waxing salons this side of Melbourne.
Here’s what you can expect from a typical wax, and how to make the most out of your brand new Brazilian.
There are a few different kinds of intimate waxing, but within the realm of Brazilian waxing specifically, there are generally two options. First, you can leave a little landing strip or triangle of hair on top. Otherwise, you can simply have all hair down there removed. We’re talking everything. In between the cheeks included.
We’re not going to sugar coat it, of course a Brazilian wax hurts a little! You’re having hair stripped from one of the most sensitive regions of your body. Having said that, the more you wax, the more your body and brain get used to the pain. With each subsequent Brazilian, it’ll begin to hurt less and less. It also helps to know what’s coming, so you can prepare yourself mentally.
After-care is so important when it comes to intimate waxing. Make sure to keep the area moisturised, and exfoliate every couple of days. Straight after your wax, you want to avoid sweat and exercise for at least 24 hours, and wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes to avoid irritation and ingrowns.
