1. Avoid exposure to the sun
You should avoid exposure to sunlight in the areas that will be waxed during the 24 to 48 hours before waxing. That’s because sun exposure can make the skin drier, making it more sensitive and susceptible to pain during your session .
Newly tanned skin is also more likely to develop blemishes or redness after waxing.
But this care should also be extended after waxing, with the use of sunscreen when there is exposure to the sun, especially in the first few days. Since the skin is more fragile and blemishes and irritations can occur.
Remembering that when the care of using sunscreen is routine, the effects of the sun on the skin are reduced and the likelihood of skin complications, due to waxing or any other factor, are reduced.
2. Take a hot shower
Before your hair removal session, it is interesting that you take a hot shower. In addition to being relaxing and helping you to be even more calm for your session, the warmer temperature of the water also relaxes the skin, opens the pores and facilitates the removal of hair.
Because with the pores and follicles less contracted, the hair bulbs come out with less resistance when they are removed, which ends up reducing the pain.
Warm water (ideally, the water should not be too hot so as not to sensitize or dry the skin) acts in a similar way to the heat of the wax used in waxing. So the combination of the action of the two prepares the skin even more so that there are no skin side effects such as irritations.
In addition, taking a shower before waxing helps to reduce the number of microorganisms present on the skin, thus decreasing the likelihood of future infections due to sensitized skin.
3. Do not exfoliate the skin
Exfoliation is an ally of skin care, as it removes dead cells from the surface layers of the skin that are also the most exposed to external factors such as pollution.
However, despite contributing to the reduction of unwanted micro-organisms on the skin, it should not be done in the days before your waxing. Because it can also make the skin sensitive and lead to problems like pain, redness, blemishes, and even infections.
Therefore, in the days leading up to your session, do not exfoliate the areas that will be waxed. Since at the time of your session, the wax used will be responsible for a light exfoliation.
Because with the hair, dead cells are also removed from the site and therefore it is necessary that the area is not completely clean of microorganisms so that the skin does not suffer more than necessary.
4. Do not use deodorants, creams or oils
The use of products that can clog pores makes the procedure more painful, the results are not as amazing as they can be and can still influence side effects, such as irritation or the emergence of ingrown hairs.
So, before your session, do not use any product that can interfere with the adherence of the wax to the skin or that the hair is completely removed.
It should also be avoided in the first moments after your wax, since the skin is sensitive and can suffer from irritation. Mainly the use of deodorant with alcohol that in addition to irritation can also cause blemishes on the skin.
5. Hydrate yourself well
A hydrated skin from the outside in and from the inside out makes all the difference in the result. So it’s worth hydrating in every way, using moisturizer constantly in all areas including armpits and groin makes a difference in the health and appearance of your skin.
It is also essential when waxing, although it is not recommended to use it shortly before your session so that the wax can adhere and act completely on the skin.
Also, staying dehydrated by drinking less water than necessary makes your skin lifeless, dull and dry. Therefore, hydration must also occur from the inside out.
Follow these tips and for sure your result will be even more amazing. In addition, all these tips make your hair removal even less painful and safer.
And here’s an extra tip, wear comfortable clothes on the day of your session and the days after. So your skin recovers faster and you avoid irritation and itching.
