So, the hair that grows back is smooth. And smooth is sexy. The effects of waxing last for about two or more weeks, which is pretty good in comparison to shaving. Waxing damages your hair follicles; this is not a bad thing because it reduces the growth of hair and over time your face will be completely hair-free.
Beside this, what are the side effects of waxing your face?
Consider the following 10 possible side effects of facial waxing and how you can manage them.
- Pain. With any type of waxing, a small amount of pain is inevitable.
- Redness and irritation.
- Temporary bumps.
- Ingrown hairs.
- Sun sensitivity.
- Allergic reactions.
What should I put on my skin after waxing?
To prevent clogged pores, it is best not to put any heavy lotions on the skin after waxing. Witch hazel, aloe vera gel, diluted pure lavender or blue chamomile essential oil may be used to soothe the skin. It is recommended to wait 24 hours before applying antiperspirant to underarms after waxing that area.
How many days before an event should you get a facial?
Ideally, facial is to be done 2–3 days before an event as that is when it shows its effect. However, make sure you don't step out in the sun or stress yourself. Use a Moisturiser and a sunscreen so that your skin remains healthy and glowing even after a week of facial.
