Trying to Do a Brazilian Wax at Home? Is It Okay?






     A lot of the ladies, and even some guys, want to keep it bare down below. But sometimes, we don't have the luxury of time, or money to get a Brazilian wax at the salon. So for you DIY heroes, you don't have to worry because doing it at home is actually safe. But you just have to be extra careful so you don't end up injuring your pubic region instead of beautifying it.

A helpful tip would be to observe how your aesthetician does it. Ask relevant questions and look at her techniques. This way you can have a good idea of how to go about with it. It can be pretty simple, but you have to be extra careful.

To keep yourself from writhing in pain as you wax, avoid waxing while you have your period. Your pubic region will be more sensitive at this time, so you might want to save yourself from that torture.

You can, however, blunt the pain by taking a pain killer, such as Tylenol or Advil before waxing. But experts say that Advil tends to prolong bleeding, if ever bleeding does happen, that is why it is best to be on the safe side.

The secret to a good Brazilian wax is to avoid shaving for at least two weeks. This gives you enough hair length that will hold properly to the cloth. If you start out with a thicker bush below, you might want to trim it until about a quarter of an inch. Hairs that are too long can also be painful upon removal because it tends to drag the skin.

You can also exfoliate beforehand to remove dead skin cells on the surface that will only make removal harder. This also prevents bumps later on.

For the procedure itself you can buy a Brazilian wax kit. This often comes with a cotton or cloth strip. Trimming this will make it easier for you to work on smaller areas in the pubic region which makes it less painful rather than having to pull a long cloth.

Before starting your Brazilian wax, take a warm shower first to make it easier for you to remove the hairs. Clean your pubic area properly, also to avoid the possibility of infection. Use a mild soap and avoid putting on lotions, oils and creams afterwards. This will only make it hard for the wax to stick properly.

After drying the area, apply some baby powder. This will help absorb any excess oil and moisture, which helps the wax to do its job better.

Then, heat your wax according to manufacturer's instructions. You can place it on a stove or heat it in a microwave. But afterwards, give it one minute at least to cool down.

To make sure that you properly visualize your pubic region, it helps to place a mirror in between your legs.

With the wooden stick, that is also included in the package, you dip this into the wax and apply a thin layer over the pubic area. Make sure that you apply it in the direction where the hair grows, with the amount slightly smaller than the strips of cloth that you have prepared.

Avoid applying too much wax because this can be uncomfortable and it can be more painful later on. Start with those areas that are most accessible and then work your way behind.

After the wax is applied, immediately put on the strip of cloth over the waxed area. Press and smooth it over towards the direction of hair growth. Stretch the skin taut as you let the wax cool for a few seconds. Take a deep breath, and with the other hand pick the edge of the strip and rip it off in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Do this in a rapid motion so as not to cause too much pain and to remove as many hairs as possible.

Repeat this until you get all the hairs out. It may hurt, but once you get the hang of it, you can already tolerate the discomfort.

To finish it up, you can use tweezers to remove any remaining hairs. Clean the area by wiping off any wax residue and then apply some oil or soothing lotion afterwards.

It may be easy, but it will be your technique that will determine the success of your results. If you think that this is too risky and you are not able to tolerate having to do it on yourself, always entrust a good Brazilian wax to a trained aesthetician.
