Christmas may be the ‘most wonderful time of the year’, but the ‘sexiest time of the year’, now that’s undisputedly summer’s claim to fame. And why shouldn’t it be? It comes once a year, it’s the time that the beautiful bikinis and swimsuits get out of the closet and are flaunted (with great aplomb) on the beaches that dot the coastline of this great country. Summer is also a time when a majority of women go in for a bikini wax. A bikini wax is probably one of the best ways to ensure that your bikini line is smooth, hair free and looking gorgeous. Choosing the right type however can be a tricky affair. But fret not, because we at Shama’s Collection are here to help you make an informed choice about the right kind of bikini wax for you. And don’t forget to use Tend Skin for amazing smooth waxing experience.
Types of Bikini Waxes:
1. The Standard Bikini Wax:
The standard bikini wax eliminates only the extra, visible hair from the fringes of the bikini line, while retaining the hair in the centre, the part that is covered by the bikini bottom. While the standard look is extremely popular, it should be considered only if you’re going to stick either to the traditional two piece or one piece swimsuit. For anything a little skimpier, you might want to try another style.
2. The Full Bikini Line:
Also called the Cosmo Glass, the full bikini line, is a type of waxing that leaves a neat triangular patch of hair in the centre, while eliminating all other traces of hair from your bikini line. Perfect for a slightly more skimpy style of bikini, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous.
3. The Landing Strip:
Also known as the Brazilian, this style of waxing leaves only a straight strip of hair in the centre, while eliminating all other hair from your bikini line. The landing strip has gotten extremely popular in recent years, thanks extensively to the string bikinis and thongs enjoying a revival of sorts.
4. The Designer Wax:
The designer wax, refers to the shape of hair left behind on the region. It can vary from a love heart to a sergeant’s stripe, depending on your creativity and flexibility, considering that the more intricate the design, the more you will have to flex and bend, so that your waxer can get the excess hair out. Recommended if you’re looking to surprise your boyfriend/partner/husband… in the bedroom, not so much for the beach!
5. The Full Brazilian:
The full Brazilian implies a completely clean bikini line. Wax will be applied to the entire area, eliminating all traces of hair from the region. Recommended for hotter climes, where the bikini line tends to get sweatier with the humidity and heat.
Whatever the style of bikini wax you choose, you need to ensure that you use the Tend Skin Solution both before and after the procedure. Before the procedure, the Tend Skin Solution will help exfoliate and eliminate any dirt, grime or excess oil that could hamper the waxing process. After (not immediately after the procedure) the Tend Skin Solution works as an emollient in order to soothe the area and keep it protected from irritation and keep the area clean and hair free for a longer period of time.
