15 Things You Didn’t Know About The Vajacial

It seems like new beauty products and procedures are created and written about every day. There are so many creams, serums, treatments, and trends that promise us a plethora of desirable results. Some treatments promise to halt the aging process, while others claim to help you achieve the summer body you’ve always wanted, but without any of the hard work involved. Trying to decipher what treatments and products actually do what they say can be a challenge, to say the least — and while the procedure we’re talking about might seem like just another beauty fad, it’s actually been around for a few years.

The vajacial is just what it sounds like — a facial-like treatment for your lady parts. While people are just starting to really get on board with the idea of having any other treatment other that hair removal, the vajacial has actually been around for a few years. This means that spas who offer the service have likely perfected (or at least gotten close to perfecting) their individual vajacial methods, so it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’re sure to get a great result every time. If you’re a vajacial skeptic, read a bit more about this mysterious and slightly intimidating beauty treatment.

15. They’re A Lot Like Regular Facials

Just like a facial for your actual face, a vajacial goes through a lot of very similar processes — but just a little bit south of the border. While the idea of going to a spa to get a beauty treatment for your private parts can seem a little bit silly, it really isn’t that far off from doing the same, but for your face.

Think about it for a second here, okay? Isn’t it equally as strange to go to a spa and have a complete stranger put strange concoctions on your face, then peel, pluck, steam, and massage your face afterwards. Both treatments are pretty much equally odd, but both are also great for your skin and body. Once you get over the slight awkwardness, it really isn’t that bad at all!

14. It’s A Great Way To Treat Yourself

No one ever really thinks of paying attention to their nether regions, at least in terms of beauty treatments. Generally speaking, a shave or a wax is all we usually care about, as far as general upkeep down there is concerned. But who says you can’t also take some time and pamper yourself with something that you wouldn’t normally do for yourself, like get a vajacial?

If you’ve never tried it before, you might consider getting a vajacial as part of a “me” day, where you take time and do things for yourself to relax and unwind. Perhaps you can book a manicure and pedicure, a massage, and a vajacial all in one day! Or, if you’re not feeling super adventurous about getting a vajacial, you’ll probably be able to convince your BFF to get one done as well, and turn it into a girls’ day.

13. They Get Rid Of Pesky Ingrown Hairs

One of the most annoying parts of hair removal, specifically in your nether regions, is the risk of getting ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs usually show up as red, unattractive bumps that can even be painful and even look like acne or some sort of STI. No one wants to have their lady parts looking like they should be rushing to see a doctor immediately, and that’s where a vajacial can really be helpful.

Part of the vajacial process usually involves some type of ingrown hair extraction method, that can carefully — and painlessly — remove all of those bumps caused by ingrown hairs, as well as the actual ingrown hairs themselves. It can also prevent any new ingrown hairs from popping up, which is a great thing, especially if you regularly shave or wax down there.

12. You’ll Be Exfoliated Down There

When you think of beauty treatments for your face and body, exfoliation is usually a key step, if you want to achieve soft and smooth skin. If this is the case for the rest of your body, why wouldn’t it be a key step in treating the skin in your nether regions as well? This is why you should definitely try a vajacial, if you haven’t already.

Part of the vajacial process usually involves using some kind of body scrub that’s safe for that sensitive area of your body. The idea is that the exfoliation will not only improve the skin texture down there, but also act as a step to prepare that skin for the ingrown hair extraction process, to prevent any further irritation. They’re really not messing around when it comes in grown hairs.

11. They’re Good For Some Post-Waxing Relief

For the most part, people who partake in hair removal, either at home or at a spa, are aware of the post-shave or wax steps, to ensure that your sensitive skin doesn’t get irritated, or that you prevent any unwanted razor bumps or ingrown hairs. However, there are still some people who just shave or wax without take any steps to ensure that they don’t irritate their skin afterwards.

This is where getting a vajacial can really help. Although typically, spas don’t suggest getting a vajacial until up to 10 days post-shave or wax, to prevent any further irritation of the skin, it is definitely a good idea to get one, so that your skin’s texture can be improved for the next time you go in for hair removal, reducing your risk for any uncomfortable after-effects.

10. DIY Kits Are Available

If you’re the type of person that like to do everything themselves — or perhaps you just aren’t really comfortable going to a spa and having someone all up in your business — there are do-it-yourself kits available for people who want to try the vajacial. It’s pretty simple, and involves a mix of coconut oil, vitamin E cream, honey, and egg white. The idea is that you mix these ingredients up heat it for 20 seconds in the microwave, and apply the concoction to your lady parts.

All you have to do after that is sit back and relax for approximately 15 minutes, letting the mixture do its thing. After 15 minutes, you can wash off the mix using rose water (how luxurious!) and you should be able to see some improvements in the look and feel of the skin down there.

9. It Will Make Your Skin Feel Smooth

A lot of the time, people are concerned about whether or not their privates look “good” or “normal” to the person they’re getting intimate with. However, people don’t always consider what it takes to get your bits looking and feeling great. Getting a vajacial is definitely a step in the right direction, if you’re looking to improve the general look and feel of your skin.

Part of being confident in your birthday suit and making sure that every part of you is looking and feeling flawless, and even though that’s an all-encompassing word, especially because flawless really is a state of mind (thanks, Beyonce!) so if you take steps to pamper yourself with the goal of trying to feel good, you’ll definitely get a nice little confidence boost from treating to yourself to a luxurious vajacial.

8. They Can Prevent Acne

Another more practical benefit of getting a vajacial done, is how it can prevent your from getting acne in your nether regions. Let’s be totally honest, a sudden breakout on our faces can put a damper on our day, so what more if the breakout is in a more intimate part of our body. When you’re not feeling comfortable, it’s hard to look good and feel confident, so if your skin is prone to breakouts, a vajacial might just be what you need.

Because vajacials use gentle cleansers and exfoliants to remove impurities from your skin, it can also work to clean away acne-causing bacteria and prevent acne from making an unwanted appearance. As well, the process that works to eliminate ingrown hairs can also prevent any unwanted pimples from forming. It’s a win-win!

7. Your Lady Parts Get Covered In A Mask

via Tumblr

This might be the strangest part of getting a vajacial, but yes, just like a traditional facial you get at a spa, your lady parts also get covered in a mask. It’s hard not to picture a sheet mask for your face acting as some sort of strange diaper situation for your privates, but no, that’s not the kind of mask that get applied to your bits during a vajacial.

Typically, the masks that are applied are meant to calm and tone the skin, as an extra step in preventing any irritation and inflammation of the sensitive skin you’ve got down there. The mask is an important step, because it refreshes your skin in that area, and makes everything feel fresh and new — and feeling fresh is a good enough reason to try a vajacial, as far as we’re concerned.

6. They Get Pretty Steamy

via Tumblr

Alright, alright, get your mind out of the gutter there for a second, okay? When we say that vajacials can get pretty steamy, we don’t mean in a romantic, intimate way. We’re being pretty literal in our use of the word “steamy,” as sometimes, steam is actually involved in getting a vajacial.

This Gwyneth Paltrow-approved treatment, often referred to as a “V Steam” uses a combination of infra-red and steam in order to not only cleanse your private parts, but also claims to help balance your hormone levels. Steam treatments also claim to have other health benefits like easing your fatigue, headaches, as well as any abdominal discomfort and nausea you may be feeling. While a good nap and perhaps some Tylenol might also fix these issues, a quick steam might be a fun way to try and alleviate these ailments.

5. It Might Tickle

via Tenor

If you’re very sensitive down there, a vajacial might not actually be the greatest idea for you. A lot of the treatment involves various creams and exfoliants being rubbed and massaged into the area, which can not only feel just a tad bid awkward, but can also be downright hilarious if you’re someone who’s really ticklish.

If even the thought of going to a spa and getting a vajacial done, only to be laying their laughing the entire time isn’t something that appeals to you, you may want to consider picking up some ingredients for a do-it-yourself vajacial instead. That way, you’re in the comfort of your own home, and it is less likely to tickle, since you’ll be applying everything yourself. It’ll probably be a lot less awkward for you as well.

4. They Usually Last About 50 Minutes

via Tenor

Again, in the name of not feeling awkward, if you do decide that you want to try going to spa and getting a vajacial, you should know that they’re not entirely that quick. An average vajacial usually lasts about 50 minutes (just under an hour), so you may want to take a moment and mentally prepare yourself to be poked and prodded for a little while, all in the name of great skin and in-grown hair removal.

If 50 minutes just seems like too long for anyone to be paying attention to your lady parts at a spa, you may want to consider the do-it-yourself option, as it usually entails a lot less steps, and just a 15 minute wait time for your homemade mask to do its magic on your nether regions.

3. They Can Be Part Of Your Regular Beauty Routine

Yes, vajacials seem like they’re a luxurious beauty treatment that you don’t get all the time, but if you’re someone who regularly gets waxed, it might be something you should consider adding to your regular beauty routine. Just as you may feel you need a regular wax, your skin should also be getting a regular post-wax treatment, like a vajacial, in order to keep your skin smooth and in-grown free.

The plus side is that a lot of places that offer hair removal services also offer treatments like a vajacial, which means that you don’t have to go through the inconvenience of finding a reputable place to get your vajacials done, because your already trusted aesthetician can do your waxing, as well as your vajacials as well.

2. You Should Do Your Research Before Getting One

Giphy

Just like any beauty treatment, it is always a good idea to do your research before going just anywhere to get a vajacial done. Remember that this is still a treatment meant for your skin, and that just like any other beauty treatment, you could have an adverse reaction. Make sure that you read the reviews of where you’d like to get the treatment done, and that their staff walk you through every step of the process.

Also, if you’ve got sensitive skin, or any skin conditions, you should make sure to bring that up with the staff at the spa you plan to get your treatment done, so that they can make any necessary adjustments to masks or scrubs, or even so that they can dissuade you from having the treatment done, should your skin not be an ideal candidate for something like a vajacial.

1. It Will Make You Feel Like A Brand New Woman

Whether you decide to try it once, or make it a regular part of your beautifying and self-care routines, a vajacial is definitely something that everyone should consider trying. It’s an interesting experience, to say the least, but it also offers some great benefits, not only for your skin, but for your confidence as well.

As far as we’re concerned, anything that can make us look and feel good physically and mentally is something that everyone should give a shot, because it can be difficult to look and feel confident every single day. Doing little things to treat yourself and make you feel beautiful is never a bad thing, especially if it’s got some great health benefits as well. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t you think you should be picking up the phone and booking an appointment for a vajacial right now?
