There is a real beauty to the long-lasting effects of waxing, and nothing beats the simplicity and ease of going to a professional to ensure the job is done right. Not only does waxing give you soft, smooth, and hairless skin, but it also gradually lightens, softens, and reduces the amount of hair that grows back.
What should I avoid after waxing?
Lotions, powders, antiperspirants, hot baths, and hot showers should be avoided after waxing, as should saunas, prolonged sun exposure, and tanning beds. Exercise and other activities that could cause rubbing of chafing in the waxed area should also be postponed. Wear loose clothing, keep your skin clean, and avoid rubbing or scratching it for the best results.
Can I exfoliate after waxing?
Yes. Exfoliating after waxing helps to avoid ingrown hair and keep the skin smooth, but you will want to wait at least 24 hours (and ideally 2-3 days) after waxing before you exfoliate. This allows the skin some time to heal.
Does hair grow back thicker after waxing?
No. Waxing removes hair from the root so new hair grows back no thicker or coarser than before. In fact, waxing regularly makes the new hair grow back even thinner over time.
