I, like many of my colleagues in the beauty business, are struggling due to the pandemic.
Many have opted to open online stores and are offering delivery. I have a unique option of offering sales online through affiliate links.
What this means is that most things you purchase from my website I will get a commission from. Even if you just click on a link that takes you to Amazon and you purchase nothing I will get a commission on anything you purchase from Amazon that day. Neat hey?
If you click on the Amazon advertisement below before you make your Amazon purchases, I would greatly appreciate it.
There are a variety of Youtube videos to give you some home waxing pointers.

Let’s talk about fem Hygiene.
We were always taught as girls that you shouldn’t use any perfumes or scents in “that area”. And that there is no need to use special washes or products.
It was true.
But it doesn’t really apply to today’s products. We have science-backed by gynecologists who all agree that it’s actually ok to use these types of products as long as they are pH balanced without harsh detergents called sulphates or glycerin. So which products out there are actually good for you to use? Anything from SWEETSPOT FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS is clinically proven to be safe and gentle.
About SweetSpot Labs
SweetSpot Labs was started 12 years ago in the top spas in North America where estheticians discovered a need for a gentle, natural, feminine hygiene product for pre and post waxing.
Why SweetSpot feminine hygiene products are a must-have in your bag
From chemistry class to gym class, yoga to an early morning board meeting, life seems to be getting busier and busier. Every woman needs to experience the luxurious freshness and unmistakable convenience of SweetSpot and they made it their mission to simplify a woman’s cleansing rituals by creating the leading, natural feminine skincare products on the market today.
You can use these products as part of an everyday routine or keep them in your bag for those on the go times that you just need to freshen up a little bit.
Women who love camping, going to the gym, fly a lot or work long hours will love these wipes!
What makes SweetSpot Labs products safe
SweetSpot products are formulated to be pH balanced without harsh detergents called sulphates or glycerin — a sugar-based ingredient (yikes!).
SweetSpot washes use gentle coconut-based cleansers. They use a combination of natural oils including apricot and sunflower to give a safer cleansing experience, naturally. The feminine wipes are ultra-soft, made without alcohol and are clinically proven to be safe and gentle. As if that weren’t enough, SweetSpot Labs conducts gynecologist-run clinical studies to test our products for safety — everywhere!
At Brazilian Wax Regina, I am very pleased to offer SweetSpot Labs products
I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do!
*Tip for other estheticians*
I buy the 50 pack and give one to clients to use before their wax! I also use them as part of my client’s holiday gifts and give away baskets.

Exfoliation is key to preventing ingrown hairs and to get the smoothest wax results.
This often works better if you have a chronic ingrown hair problem. Some people are just more prone to them than others. If you have a chronic problem, you might need to purchase a serum and use that as well as exfoliate every other day.
You can use a commercially made sugar scrub or you can make your own.
The commercial ones that I suggest are:
Homemade sugar scrubs are easy to make.
1/4 cup granulated sugar. Add more if you would like a coarser scrub.
1/2 cup coconut oil
5-10 drops of your favourite essential oil (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Store your scrub in an airtight container in a cool dark place.
If you feel like you might need an extra ingrown hair treatment check out our post on ingrown hair serums.

→How long will the area be red?
It should go away within two hours, however, clients who have sensitive skin may notice it takes up to a day. You can use a soothing cream to help get rid of the redness.
→Will I be sore?
It would be rare that you would be “sore, or swollen or in pain” after your wax.
→How long will the results last?
First-time clients will notice the regrowth typically from 2 to 3 weeks. When you start to regularly wax on a schedule, the length of time between waxes will get longer generally four to six weeks. After your fourth or fifth visit at 4-5 week regular intervals, all your hair will be in the same hair growth cycle and will be a good waxable, length at the same time. You will start to see the same effect as regular waxers after further appointments.
→How can I prevent pain?
The least painful time to wax is 5-14 days after your period. Do not drink coffee or alcohol prior to your waxing appointment. Take an ibuprofen 2 hours prior to your appointment. Apply a numbing spray prior to your appointment.
→How can I prevent ingrown hairs?
See above in post-care!
→Will it hurt less the second time?
Yes, because the hair is growing back as a new hair, it is softer and thinner and has a smaller root bulb.
→How often should I get a Brazilian wax?
In the first 6 months, I recommend every 4 weeks. After that every 4 to 6 weeks depending on your hair growth.
→Can I be waxed when pregnant?
Yes. There are no restrictions on waxing when pregnant and we have lots of experience waxing heavily pregnant ladies who come in right up to their due date.
→Can I be waxed during my period?
Yes. We ask that you use a fresh tampon before your appointment and that you are hygienically presented. Please also mention it to your technician
→What is blood spotting?
Hairs in the Anagen (growing) stage of the hair growth cycle is all supplied by tiny blood vessels. When an Anagen hair is forcibly removed by waxing, a small amount of blood may travel up through the channel in the skin that the hair was previously in.
→Can I shave if I have to?
You can but it will cause the hair to grow thicker and your next wax will be much more painful.
→Why do you use so many different types of wax?
Different types of hair need different types of wax.
→Is sugaring better than waxing?
No, you are pulling the hairs out by the roots with each method. The difference is that most waxes or oil soluble and most sugar is water-soluble.
Luckily I have 2 estheticians who have worked to do extra training with me, using the type of wax that I use. I highly recommend these women to look after my clients outside of my hours or while I am off on vacation. I only recommend estheticians that I trust to look after my clients exactly the same way that I do.
And if by chance you happen to like them better or find it easier to get into them I won’t be offended I you choose to continue your services with them.
