Being a daughter of a Brazilian Waxologist, I see new clients come in week after week to get their first ever Brazilian Bikini Wax but then they vanish and do not return on a regular basis. I know my mom is a great waxologist, one of the best so I know it was not her service but had to be something else so I asked my mother why is that? She said in a heavy Brazilian accent "because it HURTS and not everyone can take it". If you fall into that scenario or you are a regular and you wish your BBW or other body waxing hurt less then read on!
The number one cause of pain in getting any type of body waxing is fear. Have you ever gotten your eyebrow waxed and found your self twitching your forehead causing that wrinkle between your eyes ? You naturally react and tighten your muscles as defense fearing that hot wax against your skin. Well for Brazilian Waxing, we are dealing with a much more sensitive area and being uptight and nervous is the worse thing you can do. So the number one and most important tip is to RELAX. You might be thinking, impossible! But it really is possible and will make a world of a difference I guarantee this alone will lesson the pain tremendously, for me it has cut off the pain by 50%. When you come in for your appointment all nervous, you tighten up your muscles and nerve endings increasing the sense of pain which sucks for you and it becomes uncomfortable for your waxologist to do her job. So how do you go from being all uptight to relaxed? Well it takes practice, you need to train your self to lay there comfortably as relaxed as possible. Once your skin is relaxed, the waxologist can then move around as she needs to. If you are like me, you probably try to hold on to something right before the pain, well stop it, this makes it worse. So for your next appointment with any body waxing your task is to take deep breaths, stop holding onto things and loosen up your muscles. In a way it is a mind game and you need to train your brain to do this. It is not impossible and it works.A good waxoligist also looks for ways to aid in lessoning the pain and she will greatly appreciate a relaxed client who will even give her a hand in holding skin so she can quickly wax off.
This brings me to the second important tip, finding a good waxologist. Nowadays almost every nail joint has a sign that says WAXING and some even say Brazilian Waxing but that does not mean they know how to properly wax.So do your homework, ask for referrals and go to a professional. On my next article I will give you a check list for tips on finding a good waxologist. Once you know you found someone you can trust and are comfortable with, then your body waxing experience is more relaxed and thus less painful.
The third important tip is to develop a routine. The more you get your body waxed, the less it hurts. Try this test, if you are getting your legs waxed, the waxologist will start on one leg and it starts hurting then it gets better, when she goes to the other leg, it starts hurting way more. Why is that? It is because your brain was letting your body know in the first leg that you are getting used to the movements and even the pain and then when it jumps to a new leg, it is a new area so your brain alerts you of the pain in the new area. So if you establish a monthly routine for yourself, not only will you train your body to the practice but your hair will start thinning out having less and less hair each time which equals to less pain.
A trick I had in getting my Brazilian Wax was to wax my legs and Bikini line on same appointment, I would wax my legs first and then do my Bikini but to my surprise during my last appointment, the waxologist said we are doing the bikini area first and that is final. I was like YIKES, I am in trouble. She said it would be better to get the worst part done first, and to my astonishment she was absolutely right. It was over with so quickly which gave me a confidence and I felt like oh I can do that again and it really did hurt less. I was so shocked and threw my little trick out the window so now it is time to throw yours out and try these tips mentioned above in order for you to enjoy the results of your body waxing even more.
The reason why I am talking about pain is because I am not tolerant to it, I am a wus and I do not even get the full Brazilian Waxing done so I am the first to need this advice because waxing is a vital part of my life, it is part of the beauty aspect in being a woman.
You probably heard about the Brazilian Bikini Waxing on some TV show like 'Sex in the City' or Oprah perhaps you have read about it in some magazine and sparked curiosity in getting one done but yo'u'e not sure if it is right for you.
