Brazilian Bikini Wax
An important step to prepare for a bikini wax is to avoid
swimming or sunning oneself for a full 24 hours prior to the wax. After
the waxing, you will want to consider the same for a couple of days.
The skin can have some redness or bumping, which can be helped by ice.
There is also the occasional ingrown hair,
which can be iced, and then have anti-bacterial cream applied to ward
off infection. Aestheticians recommend gently exfoliating the pubic
area before the wax, and then doing so regularly after the wax to cut
down on ingrown hairs.
If you want to look your best in a tiny bikini, the Brazilian wax is the way to go. However, there are plenty of things you
need to consider before showing up for your appointment. You need to get
ready, but also consider your state of mind, particularly if it’s your
The ideal length of hair for the best bikini wax is between
1/8" - 1/4". Anything shorter will not deliver satisfied results. If it’s much longer, you’re just creating more work for your
esthetician, who will have to trim before waxing. Tip: If you schedule your waxing
sessions every six weeks, you’ll be in that hair growth sweet spot.
Schedule your appointment
Even the strictest waxing schedule should make room for your
period. If you’re interested in the least painful time to get a Brazilian,
that’s the week after your cycle. You should never schedule an appointment for
a day or two before or after your period, since you’re likely to experience a
lot more pain. Just because some estheticians are still willing to do it during
your period doesn’t mean you should take them up.
Keeping your skin moisturized is very important,
but don’t overdo it with lotion, even if it’s a light one. Make sure you do not
use any oils on your skin 24 hours before your appointment.
If you want to prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliation is a must.
Prepare for Pain
Avoid Advil, Ibuprofen or Aspirin, since they
are blood thinners and can extend any bleeding.
Expect the First
Time Is Always the Worst
After you get through it, the hair follicle will get
thinner and easier to pull out.
Bring the Right Underwear
The last thing you want after waxing is friction. One of the
most important things to do before a Brazilian wax is to have a comfortable pair of panties. Full-coverage underwear made from soft cotton will keep you comfy and
reduce any painful friction. Tip: replace those skinny jeans with sweatpants.
Avoid Wine and
Drinking alcohol and stimulants like coffee is a bad idea
before a Brazilian. They both tighten your pores, and dehydrates you, which mean more pain.
Don't plan on doing anything physical right afterward.
You will probably be a little exhausted and your skin will most likely
be sore for a day or so. Remember, you've wanted this for a while so the
pain is worth it! (That's what you tell yourself while its happening.)
It is important to follow a few basic steps when you prepare for a bikini wax. First, of course, you should not get a bikini wax if you are diabetic, suffer from psoriasis or other skin conditions, or if you take Retinol or Accutane. If you are unsure, ask you physician whether you can go ahead with a wax.

One of the easiest ways to update your makeup bag each season is to add in current color trends. And while it’s probably inadvisable to replace your whole makeup kit with a fleeting palette-du-jour, adding a few fresh products can go a long way. Accessories, especially, are a smart way to incorporate timely hues, and many of us switch those up anyway. One prime example: A new eye-shadow in lilac is a stylish asset that can take you through spring and summer. Follow our social media to see the color trends to know about now, along with impactful products in each category. If you can’t decide which you’ll use most, we recommend one of the featured Devezin products, which are as functional as they are fashionable. With summer here, it's time to reach for the sunscreen. But not everyone is convinced that skin protection is a necessity. "Older adults grew up at a time when unprotected skin exposure wasn't a cardinal sin, and many I talk to think a little sun is good for them. …
