You now have smooth, bare, beautiful skin... you want to keep it that way, right? Home care is key! Exfoliate 2-3 times a week if using a scrub or glove, and moisturize daily. If you are using a chemical exfoliator, use daily, and remember to moisturize. This keeps the dead skin and build up away, and keeps skin soft and smooth allowing your hair to break through the skin easier preventing ingrown hairs. I recommend using "Scrub 'Me' Lucious" OR "Get The Bump Outta Here" products for exfoliating. You are able to purchase those at your appointment.
PRONE TO INGROWN HAIRS?
Don't wait until you have them to address them! I recommend applying Relax & Wax "Get The Bump Out Outta Here" daily and 2 times a day on the problematic ingrown spots to keep them away. It comes in a mess free roll on and is formulated for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Don't touch! I know its hard and you just can't help but feel your freshly waxed soft skin- but don't! For the first 24 hours your pores are open and prone to infection. The area needs to stay as clean as possible during this time. This means for the first 24 hours- no swimming (baths, pools, hot tubs, lakes, etc.), no intercourse, and no excessive sweating. NO TANNING FOR 48 HOURS - your freshly waxed skin will burn! If you come in for a chest or back wax, bring a clean shirt to put on afterwards. For all other areas we recommend wearing loose clothes afterward, friction from tight clothing can cause irritation and ingrown hair.
