What to do after our waxing hair removal?

1. Avoid Heat and Friction: For the first 24-48 hours after waxing, steer clear of hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms. Additionally, avoid intense exercise, as sweat and friction can irritate the waxed area.

2. Wear Loose Clothing: Tight clothing can cause irritation and ingrown hairs. Opt for loose, breathable fabrics to allow your skin to recover.

3. Stay Out of the Sun: Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun immediately after waxing. Avoid sunbathing and tanning beds, and if you must be in the sun, use a strong SPF sunscreen.

4. Gentle Skincare: Use a mild, fragrance-free cleanser and avoid exfoliating the waxed area for at least 24-48 hours. After this period, consider gentle exfoliation to help prevent ingrown hairs.

5. Moisturize: Apply a fragrance-free, soothing moisturizer or aloe vera to help calm the skin. Avoid lotions with fragrances or acids, as they can cause irritation.

6. Avoid Swimming: Chlorinated water can irritate freshly waxed skin, so it’s best to steer clear of swimming pools and hot tubs for a couple of days after waxing.

7. No Makeup or Deodorant: If you’ve had your face or underarms waxed, avoid applying makeup or deodorant for at least 24 hours to prevent clogging pores.

8. Watch for Ingrown Hairs: To prevent ingrown hairs, gently exfoliate the area 2-3 times a week after the initial 48-hour period and keep the skin moisturized.

9. Avoid Touching the Area: Touching the waxed area with unwashed hands can introduce bacteria and lead to infections or breakouts.

10. Seek Medical Attention for Severe Reactions: If you experience severe redness, swelling, or signs of an allergic reaction, consult a healthcare professional.
