New growth after only a week? I thought it was supposed to last much longer. Does this mean that after a week you either have to start shaving again or go get another wax? How long do people typically wait in between waxings? I'm thinking about getting my first Brazilian done next month and I'm super nervous!!

Well...it's been 2 weeks since my brazilian and I am barely starting to show. I have to go weekly or every 10 days for my underarms. But I will go 4-6 weeks for my legs. It all depends on how long you have been waxing for, how fast your hair grows & how dark your hair is. Also, keep in mind that when it starts to grow back it's not like when you shave & it grows back - it is softer, finer & they don't all grow back all at once & at the same speed. It's not like a stubble! I will also tweeze a few hairs if they are missed, or grow back quicker.

So I finally decided to get it done before the wedding, is it ok to get it done the day before we leave? I cant think of any reason not to right.

I would do it a few days beforehand. It might still be red the next day. Give it at least a few days to heal, and then you should be super smooth.

Hey Jen, I was just at a wedding at Gran Bahia, Akumal....it was beautiful!!!

 

Anyhow back to the waxing...you also need to stay out of the sun for about 24 hours or so after and I was warned not to tan within 24 hours prior to the appt as there is a chance the skin will be more sensitive and you can get a scab. It's rare and likely won't happen but it's good to be aware of these kinds of things before you go in for your appt.

I'm ready to get one too!

Now, Is there anything you need to do beforehand?

I think I read you shouldn't shave for 2 weeks before you go in for a Brazilian Wax? ANybody know of anything else in particular?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
