OK, so your hair has gone! The follicles are a little, err, surprised to say the least – but one of the most important thing to remember about the waxing process is ‘aftercare’.
For in-growing hairs (and possible infection) – “prevention is far better than the cure” – so you should adopt a routine of skin scuffing or exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells with a clean loofah, scrubbing mitt). If you prefer just use an air dried towel that’s been washed without fabric conditioner to scuff gently a couple of times - then have a tepid shower, pat yourself dry and sling some light scent free moisturiser on.
Doing this just twice a week will improve your skin condition and help the new hairs to grow through.
Small bumps, pimples and slight soreness are usual reactions – especially for first-timers. These will reduce in a day or so. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please call me.
I might rant on about it a little, but I want you to have the best experience possible, and maintain your ultra-smooth look. You will be given a full list of Do’s and Don’ts after your treatment.
If you get some pimples, a cup of salt into your bath for a few days will help to soothe your skin.
