How to Take Care of Your Skin After a Wax

Posted by Nima | March 10, 2023

Following the appropriate post waxing procedures can help you preserve your skin and decrease any discomfort you might be feeling. Waxing services are available at the Nima Institute as part of our guest services in order to provide a comprehensive education for our students. We also provide a variety of courses to help our students learn the required abilities to pursue a successful career in esthetics. Here are some of our recommendations for after your waxing treatment.

Avoid swimming if possible.

To avoid infection, refrain from swimming for several days after your wax. When you spend time in a pool or bath, you are more likely to get an infection. If you have just waxed, it’s important to avoid water as your skin will need some time to heal and will be more susceptible to infection. Taking showers rather than baths will help you protect your skin and minimize the risk of this happening.

Be Careful with Exfoliation

Exfoliating your skin can help you avoid ingrown hairs and keep your skin healthy overall. However, the time at which you exfoliate is critical in order to minimize harm, especially after your waxing service. It’s a good idea to exfoliate the night before your waxing session. This gives your skin the night to heal from any irritation or abrasions caused by your exfoliation. However, it is best to wait at least 48 hours after the appointment to reduce the chance of damage to your skin. Exfoliating before 48 hours have passed since your last wax can damage your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. The time you wait to exfoliate after a wax differs from person to person. If you have extremely sensitive skin you may want to wait more than 48 hours.

Avoid Extended Sun Exposure

After your wax, the skin is more susceptible to damage. This implies that UV radiation may harm the skin’s surface more than it normally would. To avoid damaging your skin, stay out of the sun as much as possible after you have been waxed. Wearing clothing that will protect your skin from UV rays is also beneficial. Not only does it minimize damage, but discomfort as well.

Stick with fragrance-free & gentle skincare products.

After your wax, you’ll need products that are gentle and fragrance-free. Make sure you only use products like this for a few days after you’ve been waxed. By taking this action, you can spare yourself discomfort and possible skin damage. If you have questions about what products meet these criteria or want some recommendations, feel free to ask your esthetician at your consultation or contact us! At Nima, we strive to give you the best experience before, during, and after your service.

Choose loose clothing instead of tight clothing.

Not only is tight clothing uncomfortable after a wax, but it can also cause skin damage. It’s critical to remember that you should only wear loose clothing after being waxed. By doing this, you’ll reduce the chances of experiencing rubbing and chafing, which could cause more skin irritation to the waxed area.

To sum it up

After you have been waxed, follow these tips to ensure your skin’s health and comfort. If you are interested in a career in esthetics, remember that it is important to get a good education.
