If you’re planning to get a Brazilian wax, there are a few things you should do beforehand to make the experience as smooth and comfortable as possible.
First and foremost, it’s important to make sure your hair is the right length. Brazilian waxes work best when the hair is at least a quarter of an inch long (length of a grain of rice), but not longer than a half inch. This allows the wax to grip the hair properly and remove it effectively. If your hair is too long it can lead to discomfort. If your hair is too short, the wax may not be able to grab onto the hair properly, which means not a precise wax.
It’s also a good idea to exfoliate your skin before your waxing appointment. This will help to remove any dead skin cells and other debris that could potentially block the hair follicles and make it harder for the wax to remove the hair. You can exfoliate with a gentle scrub or exfoliating gloves. Just be sure to do it a day before your appointment to avoid irritating your skin.
Finally, make sure to avoid any activities that could irritate your skin before your waxing appointment. This includes things like using harsh soaps or skincare products, shaving, and applying lotions or creams to the area that will be waxed. All of these things can irritate your skin and make it more sensitive, which can increase your discomfort during the waxing process.
By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your Brazilian wax goes smoothly and that you’re happy with the results. So take the time to prepare properly, and you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of smooth, hair-free skin without any unnecessary discomfort.
