5 Tips For A Happier Brazilian Wax Experience

1. Make sure you are fresh, clean and dry. Wet skin rips and tears easily, do not arrive to your appointment after the gym or any other physical activity.
2. Be prepared to remove your underwear. It’s difficult to wax an intimate area that is covered or blocked with fabric.

3. Grow your hair out for at least two weeks. Hair that is too short will both break and be tugged BUT not pulled out by the root creating a painful experience and waste of money.

4. You’re going to break a big sweat, but don’t worry, even the most seasoned waxer sweats. Don’t be embarrassed.
5. You may be a little sensitive for the next 24 hours, this is normal. We suggest: no sex or spin class 24 hours after a first time Brazilian.
One key piece of advice that estheticians have been telling us for years is to use PFB Vanish roll on 10 days prior to waxing, as this exfoliates and moisturizes the area to be waxed and enables the hair to be removed much more easily.
Be sure to end your waxing treatment with PFB Vanish Bikini Mask or Man Mask to calm and soothe this now sensitive area. You can also use PFB Vanish and PFB Vanish with Chromabright daily to ensure you eliminate ingrown hairs and their subsequent razor bumps.
