Waxing is a hair removal method that is the preferred choice of many girls. Low cost, root hair removal, slow regrowth time are the advantages of waxing. However, besides, waxing causes certain bad effects on girls' skin such as: irritation, ingrown hairs, acne.
So how to overcome the disadvantages of waxing and maintain healthy skin after waxing?
Let's take a look at the following ways with Lush beauty spa:
1. Wear comfy clothing.
You should choose loose, comfortable clothes, with thin, light and airy materials to minimize the rubbing of clothes to your sensitive skin after waxing.
2. Stay away from water.
Your skin after hair removal is very sensitive, you should limit contact with seawater, swimming pool water. Because the detergent in swimming pool water and the high salt concentration in sea water will cause your skin to swell, maybe even blister. Therefore, to protect your skin, you should only bathe with warm water at home and minimize cleaning products such as soaps and exfoliating creams on the skin.
3. Apply cold.
The use of ice on the wax area not only reduces the pain of waxing but also helps to soothe the swelling that irritates the hair removal spot. However, a note is that you should not apply ice directly to the newly waxed skin, and should only use a cold towel applied to the skin for less than 1 minute to avoid causing the cold burn.
4. Use Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has excellent hydrating and soothing properties for post-wax sensitive skin. Besides applying ice immediately after waxing, the following days you can use aloe vera instead of fragrance-containing moisturizers, to moisturize and restore skin.
5. Protect your skin from the sun
After waxing, your skin has lost its inherent protective coat, so direct exposure to the sun will harm your sensitive skin. One advice for you at this time is to use sunscreen before participating in outdoor activities. You can also equip a jacket, hat or pants to avoid direct exposure to the sun.
