Looking after your skin can be hard work. Not only do you have to find the time to exfoliate and moisturise, but supermarket soaps, diet and artificial air temperatures can all contribute to any skin woes you may have.


Having smooth, soft skin will give you the best results post - wax. As beauty therapists, we are quizzed daily on what the best routine is and what products to use. Some people come to us and have been exfoliating every day; this is a big no – no! You’re scrubbing away all those natural oils that keep your skin glowing. Exfoliating with your BB Mitt is only necessary once or twice a week at the most!


One of the best things you can use on your skin to moisturise is Aloe Vera. Not only is it natural, its anti-bacterial qualities help to hydrate your skin, prevent wrinkles, treat stretch marks and improves skin elasticity! Whether you’re looking to naturally ease a few of those pregnancy stretch marks or soothe your skin after sitting in the sun for a long period of time, Aloe Vera is one of the safest products to use all over!


Aloe Vera helps to calm down any inflammation or irritation, particularly after sun exposure. If your skin is burnt, the cooling qualities of Aloe Vera will help to heal the skin and also settle down any discomfort and redness.


Our skin is our largest organ and is so delicate - we’ve only got one for the rest of our lives, so we always recommend using the right products for delicate skin types. Waxing can be taxing on sensitive skin as well, so Aloe Vera helps to soothe and calm your skin after your treatments.


We put Aloe Vera into all our lotions at Brazilian Butterfly. The products we use in the room on you straight after your wax can be taken home and used all month for the healthiest looking skin! Be sure to try the Delicate Aloe Vera Lotion on your next visit with us.
