When is a hair cut not a hair cut? When it’s Brazilian waxing. For some women, the thought of having their pubic area stripped ferociously and waxed is enough to send them into seizures. For others, it’s more than enough to make them run for the hills. Unfortunately, myths about this popular form of female hair removal have become so common that many women are assuming that any form of waxing must be underhanded and gross. Well…not necessarily! In reality, Brazilian waxing isn’t as dangerous as you may think. It’s pretty safe and will leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed – provided you do it correctly. Read on to learn more!
What is Brazilian Waxing?
Waxing is a common method of body hair removal that involves two people: a practitioner who ingests a hot wax and a client who’s seeking the pain and discomfort of the procedure. The practitioner, also known as the “waxer,” removes the hair with a special hot waxing stick. The stick is then followed by a cold water shaver to remove the excess water from the hair. The hair is typically removed from the immediate area and then let air dry or brush off to get it out of the way.
How Does It Work?
The principle behind Brazilian waxing is the same as any other form of waxing: The closer the hair root is to the skin’s surface, the easier it will be to remove. To remove the hair at its root, the practitioner applies the hot wax to the skin’s surface about six inches from the root. The user then lies down on their side and the practitioner shaves the top of the head with a dull razor. The hair is then lifted out from the top of the head with a scalpel and the excess hair is removed from the body with a hair removal kit or dermal profiler.
Is Brazilian Waxing Really That Bad for the Body?
Since the Brazilian waxing procedure removes the skin’s natural oils, it can feel rather dry and tight on the skin after the operation. If you’re prone to eczema, it’s suggested that you try to use a soothing moisturizer after the procedure to help your skin recover faster. But that’s not the only side effect that many women experience: Irritability, mood swings, and increased body-mushing are some of the side effects that are associated with regular Brazilian waxing.
Should You Have Your Pubic Area Waxed?
This one’s a no-brainer! If you’re experiencing any discomfort, redness, or burning during or after the operation, it’s a good idea to visit a doctor to rule out any possible complications. But generally speaking, having your pubic hair removed is considered a good thing. Why? Because it will leave your skin feeling smoother and cleaner, as well as allow you to adorn your growing pubic hair with a few extra hairs!
There are many myths about Brazilian waxing, and the truth is that it’s not that bad for your body. Yes, it can be uncomfortable, but it’s also safe and painless.
