Instructions For After the Wax

After the wax care

You've decided on it, booked the appointment, and braved the hot wax - but now what? What comes after the wax? Do you wear certain clothes? Apply a particular substance? How do you treat the area? We've put together a list of instructions for after the wax that will help you get the most of your fresh and smooth skin, while minimizing in-grown hairs, bruising and skin irritation.

Post-Wax Instructions Depending on the area you had waxed, some of these tips may not apply to you. For the first 24 hours:

  • Wear loose fitting, cotton clothes

  • Don't apply anything topical, including deodorant, makeup, or items with SPF

  • During your first shower, use cold water to rinse the area

After 24 hours:

  • Exfoliate the area daily with loofah (for facial areas, use exfoliating scrub 2-3x per week)

  • Apply alcohol-free Aloe Vera 1-2x a day

  • Minimize the amount of non-breathable nylon clothing, along with other materials that hold moisture and sweat in

  • For bikini area waxes, try to eliminate leg crossing, as it creates sweat and doesn't allow the area to breathe
