Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you're looking to treat yourself (or your partner) to a Brazilian Wax, we’ve got you covered!
Whether you're wanting to just tidy up your bikini-line with a bikini wax or go completely bare with a Brazilian wax, we’ve summed up the best tips and tricks on how to do it yourself in the comfort of your own home!
Why a Brazilian Wax? Unlike shaving that can leave you with stubble, waxing removes hair from the root leaving you with next-level smooth skin! Other benefits include thinner and finer hair overtime, healthy-looking skin and longer-lasting results.
Grow it out
Keep your hair down there long enough for the wax to grip it. Too short, and even too long, can cause the experience to be much more painful than it needs to be. The ideal length of hair for a Brazilian wax should be no shorter than 3mm and no longer than 5mm. If hair is too long, trim to the ideal length.
Exfoliating is a must before waxing to clear skin of impurities such as dead skin cells and clogged pores. Essentially, this can prevent ingrown hairs and bring healthier skin to the surface. Not only is exfoliating essential before waxing, but who wouldn’t want soft skin just in time for Valentine’s Day?
Be sure to exfoliate gently, especially for a Brazilian wax. Exfoliating too harshly can cause irritation to the skin. Gently exfoliate a couple of days before you plan to wax with a brush, mitt, loofah or your favourite scrub to improve your waxing results!
Relax, then wax
Take a deep breath. Relax. Think of a happy place.
What you’ll need: Nad’s Brazilian & Bikini Wax, application spatulas (included in your kit!), and a mirror.
Nad’s Brazilian & Bikini Wax is an at home bikini wax kit that helps you achieve salon quality results with confidence. The strip-free, Brazilian wax formula was specifically designed to glide easily and evenly for an effortless application.
The key is to work on one small area at a time, beginning with the bikini line moving inwards. Be sure to apply the wax in the direction of your hair growth, hold your skin taut, lift the end of the Brazilian wax, pull in the opposite direction of hair growth and repeat. Keep an eye on your progress using a mirror. Avoid waxing the same area more than once.
Soothe & moisturise
The Post-Wax Calming Wipes included in your Nad’s Brazilian & Bikini Wax kit is an essential after-hair-removal tool to help calm the skin, minimise irritation and reduce redness.
Be sure to show your freshly waxed skin some TLC by moisturising with your favourite body lotion daily, but steer clear from any fragrances that might irritate the skin. Some fabrics can also irritate newly waxed skin, so opt for light cotton panties, as opposed to lace or nylon. Continue to exfoliate at least 3 times per week to prevent dead skin cells from clogging hair follicles and creating ingrown hairs.
