Calm Home Spa tailors waxing treatments that suit one’s hair and skin type. If you have undergone full body waxing, it is important to note that there are common reactions that you will experience. However, there are some aftercare tips that you should not neglect as they can make your waxing experience much better.
The following reactions are common and completely normal and temporary reactions after full body waxing treatments. Any symptoms must subside within a day or two.
- Small bumps
- Slight soreness
- Once you experience persistent redness and soreness, don’t hesitate to contact Calm Home Spa.
Just keep the waxed areas clean and avoid friction and heat during the next day. It means that you should do the following:
- Heat reaction might be seen on your skin for a few hours after treatment, and it’s normal. It’ll differ from the mild redness to stronger skin reaction, and several people will have red dots on their waxed body.
- Dry brush the waxed area several times a week. Consider getting a brush that you’d scrub your back with manufactured from bristle and wood. If rashes or spots persist for more than several days, consult with the professionals at Calm Home Spa.
- Avoid too much heat in a day, and it includes hot showers or baths, saunas, steam rooms, and Jacuzzi as it could aggravate the skin and lead the pores to open. You might also pick up an infection from the public places.
- UV light exposure including sunbathing and sunbeds should be avoided for a day following treatment because burning may happen.
- No heat or massage treatment for a day.
- Avoid fake tan for a day.
- Never go swimming in the chlorinated pools.
- Deodorants or anything that’s perfumed must not be applied to the waxed area for a day or two as it could make the waxed area very sore.
- Tight clothing must be avoided after full body waxing treatments for a day or two because it could aggravate the waxed area.
- Waxing gets rid of the dead skin so your skin might be a bit lighter after full body waxing, yet the color of your skin will return to its normal form in just a few hours.
If the aftercare tips given are followed, your skin will return to normal in just a day. Once the reaction is present or worsens, it might be because you’ve had an allergic reaction to full body waxing and you must look for medical advice from the pros.
