The Benefits of Brazilian Waxing: Why It's Worth the Pain

The thought of going bare down there can be overwhelming, but trust us, the pain of Brazilian waxing is worth the gain. From saving time and money to improving hygiene and boosting confidence, Brazilian waxing offers several benefits that make it a smart choice for many.

Saves Money and Time

How often do you shave? According to statistics, women will spend a significant amount on shaving-related expenses in their lifetime and shave thousands of times. Those extra 10 minutes spent in the shower seriously add up. Between the frequency and products required to shave (shaving cream, razors, aftershave, etc.), waxing becomes the smarter choice financially. To maintain the smooth appearance that waxing provides, shaving is required almost every second day, but with Brazilian waxing, you can go up to six weeks between appointments. Not to mention, you can say goodbye to those pesky spots of irritation that razors can often leave behind.

It’s Hygienic

We get it, no one loves to talk about the situation “down there,” but let’s face it, it can collect unfavorable germs. Pubic hair traps bacteria that can lead to infection and a less-than-desirable odor. For many women, even after showering in the morning, simply going to the bathroom can cause a certain trapped and lasting odor that leaves us feeling self-conscious until our next shower. By removing the hair on the outer labia, you can drastically reduce your risk of any unwanted odor. And by removing all the hair with a Brazilian waxing session, you’ll have cleaner skin that stays fresher even longer—without any hassle.

Reduces Ingrown Hairs

Ah, those dreaded ingrown hairs. This is quite possibly the biggest downfall of shaving and the greatest benefit of switching to Brazilian waxing. As a result of trimming or shaving, hairs often redirect their growth into the skin instead of through the surface. The hairs then get trapped underneath the surface of the skin, causing inflamed bumps known as ingrown hairs. Curly hair in particular is more likely to bend and re-enter the skin when cut. Ingrown hairs can become easily infected and require prescribed medicine, especially if they are picked at. Add ingrown hair medicated lotion to your list of shaving expenses. And yes, they freakin’ hurt.

Increases Confidence

Confidence in the bedroom can be directly correlated with how you feel about your grooming habits below the belt. According to researchers, women who groom report being more satisfied with their sex lives than those who don’t. Men also report preferring a well-groomed sexual partner, according to a recent study. Whether Brazilian waxing is for yourself or for your partner, being beach-ready will provide you the confidence you want this summer.


While the pain of Brazilian waxing might seem daunting at first, the long-term benefits make it worth it. From saving time and money to improving hygiene and reducing ingrown hairs, Brazilian waxing can enhance your confidence and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin. So why not give it a try? Your future self might thank you.
