The Ultimate Waxing RuleBook: Do’s And Don’ts Of Waxing
It’s summer, which means beach bumming and bikini bods. Many of you may have also been thinking of having a waxing session.
Waxing (removal of hair from the root) is a continuous method of controlling hair growth, causing your hair to thin and grow more slowly. But, before you get set for your waxing session, here are some Do’s and Don’ts of waxing you need to remember
1. Remove the dirt by exfoliating it:
Waxing pulls hair from the follicles, or the roots of the hair, out of the skin pore. Regrowth is slowed as a result of this. However, dirt and dust build in these pores, clogging them and making it difficult to draw the hairs out. To avoid this, use a store-bought or homemade scrub to exfoliate the area you want to wax. The scrub will brush through the pores, cleaning them and allowing the hairs to be pushed through.
2. Be cautious of bruises and cuts:
Do you have any new bruises or cuts? Allow them to fully recover. Because using hot wax and then removing it causes a damaged area of the skin to degenerate even more. Pay attention to these.
Moisturizing is the simplest and most efficient technique to keep your skin silky soft after a wax. Waxing eliminates the epidermis’ top layer, revealing fresh, softer skin while also removing the skin’s natural oil and moisture.
4. Try Cool Gels
Cool gels with naturally relaxing components like Aloe vera or tea tree oil can also be used to soothe newly waxed skin. You can use them to rejuvenate and protect the region for a few days following your session.

1. Do not touch freshly waxed skin
Natural oils on the skin can block pores, and germs commonly found on the skin can raise the risk of infection. If you want to avoid bumps or other negative reactions, resist the urge to scratch or touch waxed areas.
2. Use Fragrant Products
Avoid using fragrant deodorant or perfumed items like body spray or strong lotion after waxing because the chemicals can irritate the skin and create irritation.
3. Take hot baths and saunas
After waxing, the heat from a shower, hot bath, or hot tub can irritate the skin, making it redder and more sensitive. In addition, hot water dilates your pores, making your skin more susceptible to infection and ingrown hairs. Also, avoid swimming in a public pool for a few days because chlorine is drying and might irritate sensitive skin types.
4. Stay out of the sun
Because your skin is extremely sensitive after being waxed, being exposed to the harsh sun is not a good idea. The skin is raw and responsive after waxing, and direct sunlight may make it more sensitive. It’s possible that you’ll have minor burns and irritations on your skin. Follow these important steps to ensure that your waxing experience is stress-free and that you don’t have to deal with any post-waxing issues.
