    Waxing Q&A: Tips to Avoid a Break Out

    Now that I am in my late 30’s I don’t typically have acne issues. However, after I get waxed anywhere on my face I ALWAYS break out. They are just little bumps but still unattractive. Why does this happen? Is there a way to avoid this?

    Everyone reacts differently to waxing and unfortunately, bumps can happen. Bumps have nothing to do with age, bumps can happen to someone who is 20 or 55 as a result of waxing. Your pores open after a hair is pulled out and bacteria can enter the pore and cause a pimple or little red bump. Everyone thinks they are the only ones who get these bumps, but bumps are actually quite common, especially around the more sensitive parts of the face like the upper lip, top of the brows and sideburn area.

    There are some things you can do to help prevent these red bumps from occurring before/after waxing:

    1. Lightly exfoliate before waxing. This will help to rid the follicle of oil and debris.

    2. Ask your cerologist to use “the zapper,” a high frequency machine. High frequency treatments help to kill bacteria that is on the surface of the skin, thus minimizing potential outbreaks. And the great news…there is no extra charge for this high frequency treatment at Waxing the City. We offer this as a value added service to make your experience as pleasant as possible☺

    3. Avoid touching the freshly waxed area. The skin feels so smooth and irresistible afterward, but your fingers will put oil and bacteria on the skin and your skin tends to be more susceptible to irritations immediately after a wax.

    5. Exfoliate again the next day, unless your skin is red and tender.

    6. Women love to pick! But don't pop or pick the red bumps if they happen. This will spread the bacteria and can encourage additional pimples or red bumps. Instead apply a spot treatment for pimples using a Q-tip. Tend Skin, a product we recommend highly for ingrown hairs, works wonders, too.

    7. Lastly, try to wax on a regular basis. Regular waxing should lessen the occurrence of those pesky little red bumps over time.


    Keep the questions coming! These are great!

    Until next time,
