Brazilian Bikini Wax

Brazilian Bikini Wax

In a Brazilian bikini wax, pubic hair is groomed and removed from around the public region, around the external genitals, between the upper thighs, and around the anus. A Brazilian wax leaves a thin strip of hair at the front of the pubic area. The Brazilian also totally removes the pubic hair around the surrounding area. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to remove all hair in the area or leave a tiny strip of hair in the front. Basic bikini line waxes often clear up hair in the crotch region. A bikini full wax entails the same procedures as a bikini line wax, plus the removal of hair from in front of the pubic bone. 

When it comes to choosing which style of wax is best for you, it all comes down to preference. It depends on what you want your hair to look like and what is the most comfortable for you personally. A bikini line, a full bikini wax, and a Brazilian bikini wax are all popular choices.


Difference Between Hard Wax and Soft Wax

Waxing comprises a warm mixture that’s applied to the skin and removed swiftly after it cools. The two types of waxes that you can choose for your hair removal are hard wax and soft wax. Soft wax requires strips to remove and is created with rosin, oils, and other ingredients. After the wax is put on your skin, a paper strip will be placed on the wax and then the paper strip will be pulled by you or whatever specialist is servicing you. Hard wax differs from soft wax by not requiring a strip to remove hair. The wax is applied directly to the skin.

The choice of whether you’re going to use soft wax or hard wax in a Brazilian bikini wax is dependent on what type of area you’re trying to wax. Since soft wax requires the use of strips, it makes more sense to apply these strips to areas of skin where a lot of hair needs to be removed. Larger spaces of skin are better suited for this. Hard wax is better when you’re trying to precisely remove hair from a smaller space on your body.


Post Wax Care

When hair is aggressively removed, like with waxing, it creates stress on the surrounding skin. Many people get small rashes and irritation thereafter. Although this normally clears up in a few days, taking care of the area can expedite healing and avoid recurrent bumps. Waxing can cause ingrown hairs on rare occasions. Ingrown hairs generate tiny, round bumps that resemble acne. Even though ingrown hairs may work their way to the surface on their own time, there are steps you may take to speed up the process and alleviate your discomfort.

After getting hair waxed, you want to be proactive in trying to avoid skin irritation. You can do this by putting lotions or skin oil on the area consistently. You can also do this by washing the area with cool water. Avoid washing the area too forcefully though because that could cause more harm than good. Finally, avoid the temptation to touch the waxed area with your hands or tight material pants. You want to let the skin have space to breathe.
