Take the pain out of your cycle

 

Lavender Bunch

It’s about that time of the month again, so I was looking for some natural ways to ease the pain and came across an interesting article on natural remedies, or as they put it “Herbs that take the pain out of your cycle”.

 

For cramps they list lavender oil as a topical analgesic and muscle relaxant.  So not only are SweetSpot Labs® basil grapefruit products great for getting your groove back, but their geranium lavender collection might just fit the bill as well.

 

Do you have any natural remedies that work for you?  We would love to hear your suggestions.

DOs and DON’Ts of Down There Waxing

DOs and DON’Ts of Down There Waxing 

By Lindsey Pearl 

If God were a woman, then she would have made getting our pubes waxed a painless, pleasurable process, right? Sadly, that’s just not the case.   

We’ve all suffered from at least one or two of the following – redness, burning, bumps, and in rare cases, even infection. In order to prevent a hair-raising hoo-ha nightmare, finding a recommended hot-wax artist who practices her art in a clean, controlled environment is only half of the battle.   

The fine folks at SweetSpot Labs® actually offer up a fantastic “all-in-one” way to brace yourself for the pain. Check out the SweetSpot Labs® Intimate Grooming Spa Waxing protocol.  It even comes with a disposable g-string, just in case you accidentally show up to the appointment in your granny panties.

Whether we’re getting a simple bikini wax, a stylish strip, or a no-holds-barred Brazilian butt-wax, there are rules to follow to make sure all goes (and stays) smooth. SweetTalk on the Spot enlisted the professional expertise of New York City dermatologist Dr. Sari Weinstein for some much-needed DOs and DON’Ts.   

Before your Brazilian  

  • DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch. The wax needs something to hold onto!
  • DO prep the area with a mild exfoliating body wash and an exfoliating mitt (but be very gentle!) up until the day before your wax to help prevent ingrown hairs.
  • DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. SweetSpot Labs®’ gentle wash is the perfect pre-waxing cleanser, scented or unscented. 
  • DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour before your wax if you’re very sensitive.
  • DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive.
  • DON’T apply any creams or lotions beforehand; you’ll get better results if your skin is dry. 

 After your Brazilian  

  • DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.
  • If you’re prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs, DO wash the area twice daily with some Gentle Wash, and apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.
  • DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials (stick to cotton!) to prevent irritation.
  • If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them because it could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription). But DON’T hesitate to see your doctor if you develop very inflamed or red pus bumps! You could have an infection, which may require antibiotics.
