Getting your skin ready before a wax is important, but your after-waxing skin care regime makes a huge difference in giving you a great waxing experience.
The most common reactions to waxing are redness, minor irritation and
ingrown hairs. But, with these aftercare waxing tips, you can have
the best results and most comfort after your wax.
1. Direct Heat, Sunlight, Hot Tubs
Avoid the sun or wear sunscreen right after a wax. Waxed areas are
prone to sunburn and hyper-pigmentation (small dark spots on skin)
when exposed to the sun. It is best to wait at least 48 hours before
exposing your skin to the sun. Also, as we head into wintertime and
hot tub season, be aware that hot tubs can open pores further and
water in general has bacteria (both of which can lead to post waxing
2. Avoid tight clothing
Tight clothing, especially on the waxed areas can cause irritation
and ingrown hairs. This is especially true along the panty line where
hair breaks off due to constant friction. Choose panties and under
garments carefully. Also, when choosing workout attire, remember that
friction and excess sweating mixed with tight fitting clothes can all
lead to an increase in irritation to the skin.

further irritation to your skin, so wait about 48 hours before you

your pores are open for a period of time. Open pores can become
clogged with skin oil and dead skin cells; TendSkin helps prevent
clogged pores and ingrown hairs.

facial waxing. Remember, your pores are open for a period of time and
rubbing the area increases chances of filling your pores with oil,
skin cells, and other debris.
6. Sexual Activity
Many people ask about sex after bikini waxing. Just keep in mind
friction or anything that increases bacteria on the skin should be
