So you've got your first or one many waxes and you're feeling like a new woman (or guy)... well, did you know flawless, sexy smooth skin doesn't stop at the waxing table... no? Ok! no problem, we'll bring you up to speed on the do's and don'ts of waxing:
Exfoliate 24-48 hours after your appointment: This is an important step. Exfoliating after your wax appointment whether it's a Brazilian or just a leg wax will assist in removing the dead skin from the surface and will reveal your new skin underneath. This step also aids in keeping ingrown hairs (OUCH!) at bay.
2. Avoid sexual intercourse until the evening after: Or a few hours after if you're feeling really good... ;) sex causes friction which can cause irritation especially after having your lady parts ripped from cooter to tooter. So, tell bae to give you at least until the morning after before you hit the sheets.
3. Avoid wearing tight clothing: Your lady parts just went through an extreme make-over. Let her breathe a little. Go panty-less ( for Brazilians or bikini's) if you're comfortable doing so. You can get back to wearing your fav g-string thong and thigh hugging leggings about 24 hours after your wax.
4. Avoid excessive sweating: Ok, this is for our gym babes out there. We know you love the stair master and your daily sweat session but immediately after your wax isn't the greatest time to bust a sweat. Work out before (then shower... thanks bunches) your wax or wait until the next day. Sweat can irritate your freshly waxed skin and cause contact dermatitis, leading to red, bumpy, and itchy skin and no one wants to deal with that.
