THE FIRST 48 AFTER WAXING

image1


In the first 24-48 hours you may experience some sensitivity from the hair removal such as redness or irritation in the area that was treated. These are normal. Usually there is less reaction the longer you wax.



Avoid for 24 hrs after waxing

• Makeup, if face is waxed

• Deodorant with aluminum.

• Salt Glow, stimulating body or facial treatments.

• Do not use any exfoliating products, especially ones containing acids, since they might further irritate your skin.

• Showers are better than bathes. Use only lukewarm water-not hot.

• No saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools or other heated sources.

• Do not expose hair removal area to ultra-violet rays indoor or outdoor. For your own protection always wear sunscreen.

• Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours.

• To avoid ingrown hairs in the waxing area don’t wear tight clothes when you start to see regrowth.

• Resist touching freshly waxed skin, especially on the face, as this may encourage irritation and some breakouts.

• Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours.

• To avoid ingrown hair, exfoliate the waxed area (starting after 48 hours since treatment) twice-three times a week to get rid of dead skin layer. This will allow your hair to grow above the skins surface. If your hair cannot poke through the skin, it will curl down and create an ingrown hair. Applying a solution of 2% salicylic acid, you can find this on the acne care aisles, will help maintain smooth skin.
