Hygiene is a very important chapter. However, we need to take into account some details about this, especially when we talk about removing unwanted hair from the body. Waxing can irritate the skin. That’s why a little caution never hurts..
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic hair (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, knuckles and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
In general, before the hair removal, the skin should be washed with not very hot water. It opens the pores and facilitates the hair removal process. “We also do not have to jump out of the shower in the cosmetics cabinet. We need to give the body time to normalize its temperature. It is advisable not to apply cosmetics.
If the shower is always recommended, instead, two hours after the epilation, it is advisable not to wash it, to reopen the pores and prolong any irritation. Even after the two hours have passed, hot showers are contraindicated.
After waxing, there is the risk of getting rid of irritation from skin aggression by pulling out hair follicles. They may cause subcutaneous inflammation called folliculitis. Usually, they can be healed with tricks.
Ice applied to the epilated area will reduce redness and will have a decongestant effect. It will also close the pores.
If you are prone to folliculitis in sensitive areas, it is recommended that you use products that will calm your skin well and have an antiseptic role at the same time. Post-depilation serum with avocado milk is a product that calms the skin after epilation. It has healing properties and prevents possible infections. At the same time it prevents the growth of hair under the skin, preventing the formation of folliculitis.
The post-epilation lotion has the role of removing wax traces while moisturizing the skin. It must not be oily to be easily absorbed by the skin.
