Dos ​For Brazilian Wax


  • ​Exfoliate and hydrate the area waxed to avoid ingrown hair.
  • ​Let your waxer know before your appointment if you have any allergies, health conditions, or are taking any medication. Accutane, or any topical lotions or creams like AHAs or Retin-A, are not compatible with Brazilian wax or sugar.
  • ​Attend regular waxing treatments, to better help reduce pain and ingrown hair.

Don’ts For Brazilian Wax


  • Swim, tan, or workout for 24 hours after waxing.
  • Use products that contain alcohol on the waxed area.
  • Shave between waxes because that distorts the hair growth cycle.
  • Apply lotion right before the waxing treatment.
  • Trim hair too short (hair length should be 1/4-inch).
  • Let the hair grow too long, causing an increase in the pain.
  • Take alcohol (and other stimulants such as caffeine) prior to waxing, stimulants tighten the pores.
