Brazilian waxes are a must for me and the moment I received notice of salons opening back up, I immediately booked my appointment! Nothing but sheer joy in my heart just the thought of having smooth, “everything’s gone” skin 🙌🏽. But babyyyyy when that day came, I was in for it. Talk about feeling like a newbie to the BW life. It felt like the very first BW I’ve ever had. All those weeks of not being able to go were brutal to my soul lol. I’m pretty sure a good layer of surface skin came right on off with the wax…just joking even though it is a form of exfoliation by removing dead skin cells along with the hair. I know once I am able to get back to my regular routine, it’ll get easier and less pain just like before. Regardless of the discomfort, BW are great.
Sticking with BW treatments and exfoliating your skin does wonders. It can help to even out your skin tone, typically does not cause irritation which is common when using razors and helps prevent harsh bumps. So not only does it look better, your skin is well maintained. Be sure to properly prepare yourself before your appointments and post care is just as important. This includes cleansing the area with a mild wash and gently use a scrub exfoliating cleanser. I would recommend exfoliating 3 or 4 times a week. One of my favorite inexpensive scrubs to use is by Tree Hut. They have different scents to choose from and your skin will feel AMAZING afterwards. Treat your lady parts well and your skin will appreciate it.
Well Sunday night was my return to work in the midst of COVID-19. The relief on my co-workers’ faces…priceless lol. That was just a visual of all that I’ve missed. Then a few stated, ” I’ve never been so happy in my life to see your face again”, definitely gave me a good laugh to start my shift. The staff I relieved barely exchanged notes with me, because they were ready to run out of there. In all actuality, it was the same chaos that was going on before I took the time off. I think I expected it to run more smooth as far as a routine or clients being more understanding of the situation for essential workers. Sadly, nothing has changed. It is a fiasco, people are short fused over the pandemic and taking it out on the ones that are still here to help and provide services to them.

Even though I didn’t consider myself being off with having to homeschool my kids, I felt sorry for what my fellow co-workers were going through. In the end, people should be more mindful that we are all in this together. There is no time for clashing when everyone should be working together to get pass this pandemic. I love the clinic that I work at and I couldn’t ask for a better crew to work with. So with all that is going on, I would rather have them to work with. It is a struggle for all of us but we continue to work together, laugh and keep each other going. So despite my rough transition, I am glad to be back with my work family.
