Best Practices After Your Brazilian Wax
Hands Off, Please
Your freshly waxed skin is very vulnerable in the days following your treatment. When you touch your newly exposed skin, your run the risk of transferring bacteria from your hands to the affected areas. In worst case scenarios, this can lead to infection. At the very least, the oils from your hands can clog your pores, negating some of the exfoliating benefits of your Brazilian wax. We also recommend skipping tight clothes for a few days to avoid excessive rubbing and to give your skin time to breath. Finally, if you notice ingrown hairs in the days following your Brazilian wax, it's best to leave them be until your next treatment. If it doesn't resolve on its own, your hair removal expert can handle it for you.
Hit the Showers
Nothing says "self care" like a relaxing bubble bath, but we highly recommend you switch to showers for a day or two following your Brazilian wax. Soaking your new skin can clog your pores and lead to acne breakouts. In fact, the heat from warm bath water, tanning beds, saunas, and more can have a similar effect. Switch to taking showers and avoid exposing your skin to unnecessary heat for at least 48 hours following your treatment.
Exfoliate Your Skin
After you've given your skin two or more days to heal, you can use a sugar scrub to exfoliate the affected area. When done correctly, this gentle scrub can prevent ingrown hairs, infections, and irritation — leaving you with smooth and supple skin. There are many different kinds of exfoliating scrubs, and only a professional can recommend the best product for your unique skin type.

Put Sex On Hold
Okay, you just got a nice wax so this is not the greatest news — but don't panic! For many of the same reasons stated above, you need to put sex on pause for 48 hours. After that, you can make the judgement call on how your skin is progressing. If everything is looking healthy and returning to normal, you have the green light.
A Brazilian wax can give you the look that you want and make you feel confident and empowered. Following your treatment, be sure to stick to these post-care practices for quick and effective healing.
