Why you should care

There’s a lot you should know about caring for your lady parts after a brutal Brazilian!

When it comes to waxing, there’s nothing quite as challenging (or as sexy) as a Brazilian wax. Because of its sensitive nature (hah), people tend to avoid talking about it, so you might be missing out on these aftercare know-hows!

With great beauty comes great responsibility, so keep that in mind and follow these Brazilian wax aftercare tips that will definitely help.

1 Keep It Clean

Yes, it’s that simple. Make a conscious effort to take regular showers, especially on hot days that make you sweat. Avoid using swimming pools or going to the beach the first two days after waxing. That area is still fairly sensitive so avoid using public facilities that may be unhygienic and in a worst case scenario, cause an infection.

2 Avoid Heat

Avoid washing the waxed area with hot water and stay away from too much sun exposure as your skin is sensitive post-wax and might be easily irritated, resulting in a rash.

3 No Tight Clothes

4 Pick Your Soaps & Lotions

5 Body Scrub

You can use a gentle scrub to exfoliate the area (after a week!) to help remove dead skin cells, allowing new hair to break through instead of growing inwards and causing an itchy or painful bump. Mix some fine sugar with some coconut oil if you’d like an all-natural scrub. Once you’ve exfoliated, moisturise the area to keep it soft and smooth.

6 No Sex

Give your waxed area 48 hours to recuperate. The friction from sex might give you an infection, so it’s better to avoid it and be safe than sorry. Plus, a bit of teasing never hurt anyone!
