Post-Waxing Care

After your waxing session, you’ll want to follow the post-waxing care tips listed below. Following these guidelines will help to ensure you avoid unwanted discomfort and help you achieve the best results possible. For any guideline that does not indicate a specific measure of time, please use your own judgment based on the unique condition of your skin. Here are some things that need to be avoided for best results:

  • Outdoor sun exposure for 24 hours
  • Make-up if face waxed
  • Moisturizers and lotions for 24 hours
  • Hot water, Saunas
  • Shower is better then taking a hot bath
  • Exercise for 24 hours
  • Deodorant with aluminum if underarms are waxed
  • Salt glow / stimulating body or facial treatments
  • Chlorinated Water, Tanning, Body Sprays, Perfumes, Scrubs, Talc’s
  • For 24 hours after waxing, many people should avoid tanning and swimming pools due to the irritating effects of chlorinated water. It makes sense to avoid perfumes, scrubs, and any skin irritants the day of the waxing service
  • Tight clothing for legs / bikini
  • Keep hands away from touching freshly waxed skin, this can encourage irritation or small pimples
  • Short-term abstinence. Sexual activity should be avoided for at least 24 – 48
  • To help in ingrown hair prevention, exfoliate at home beginning 2 days after their waxing session. Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub daily on areas waxed, use with a clean wash cloth then rinse. Loofahs or mesh sponges harbor bacteria and can cause breakouts.
  • Fight the bumps. If you get any ingrown hairs I do have several products for sell to get rid of pesky ingrown hairs
  • Be sure to set a reminder to schedule your next appointment. Maintaining a regular waxing will reduce unwanted hair growth as well as reduce the pain you may have experienced on your initial waxing session.
