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 about 2 hours (or longer if you have sensitive skin) before working out, putting on makeup, or going into the sun.
Pro tip: wax at night or on a lazy weekend day with nowhere to be, so you don’t have to worry about any of that.
Resist the urge to touch your freshly waxed skin and don’t let anyone/anything else touch it (i.e. your hair, a pillow, your dog, etc.). Waxing temporarily opens your pores and makes them more sensitive to breakout-causing dirt and bacteria.
Let Skin Breathe
Don’t overwhelm your skin—waxing, then using an exfoliant, then doing a face mask, then applying 3 serums, isn’t going to end well. Hair removal is a lot for it to handle and it needs time to recover. Remove excess wax, use the Calming Serum, and leave it alone.
