Sure, the image of a spatula of hot wax near your nether regions might not sound like the most pleasant way to spend an afternoon, but it's the aftermath that we can't get enough of.
Before you try it, take some tips from Dannielli Marcelino of Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa (a parent company of Brazilian Bikini Wax Spa) in Phoenix. Valley women flock to the Brazilian-born waxing guru for her precise technique and lightning-fast rip. She uses a creamy, honey-based wax with vitamin E, leaving your skin fresh and smooth.
A regular bikini wax is $35, a Brazilian wax (where it all comes off, except for a small strip or a triangle or another fun shape of your choice) is $65. Results can last about three to eight weeks.
For summer-smooth skin, here are your bare necessities:

This stuff reduces the screams to a faint yelp. The secret ingredient is benzocaine, the stuff dentists use to numb your gums. Pure genius. Apply it 30 to 45 minutes before you wax. Relax & Wax No Scream Cream, $17 at Brazilian Bikini Wax Spa a sister company of Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa.
If you're feeling not-so-fresh before your big wax, give yourself a quick swipe with one of these gentle, pH-balanced wipes. They give off revitalizing scents like basil grapefruit and citrus galbanum. SweetSpot Labs On-The-Go Wipettes, $1.50 each or 30 for $18 at Brazilian Bikini Wax Spa a sister company of Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa.
