Expect Slight Irritation
It’s normal for your skin to be irritated for up to 24 hours after waxing. If you’re fair skinned, you’ll probably be a little red. Wait a few hours before working out, going into the sun, or putting on lotion (or deodorant, if you waxed your underarms).
Resist the urge to touch your smooth, freshly waxed skin (We know. It’s hard). Waxing temporarily opens your pores and makes them more sensitive to breakout-causing dirt and bacteria.
