1. Moisturize the area
Although you need to keep your skin moisturized after a Brazilian wax, care should be taken to avoid any product which contains a lot of perfume or which is so heavy it might block your pores and cause a breakout. A light lotion containing witch hazel or aloe vera is ideal for ongoing use.
To prevent ingrown hairs and red bumps as the hair grows back keep exfoliating the area with a gentle fine grain exfoliating product or a soft clean loofah sponge, 3 or 4 times a week. Use a gentle touch rather than scrubbing away at this sensitive area. You may even find that using a clean towel mitt in the shower will help keep the skin clear.
3. If the Initial Irritation Lasts
Most people will have some redness and irritation for the first 24 hours after waxing and this may last up to two days if you have very sensitive skin but if you experience soreness after that consult a doctor to check whether you have an allergy to the products that were used.
*Some antibiotics, birth control and blood pressure medications can make your Brazilian more sensitive. If you are under the care of a Physician please consult with your Doctor prior to making an appointment. If you are taking any medications or have any allergies please let us know prior to your appointment!
