After your Wax

So, you finally got your first wax! Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and bump free after your wax

  • You may have some hair that appears directly after your wax or was not removed.Your first wax removes the majority of hair that has grown above the skin. Because hairs grow in different cycles, your subsequent waxes will remove the hairs that were still growing below the skin’s surface but have now sprouted above the skin. After three to four waxes, all of your hairs should be growing in the same cycle, resulting in longer lasting smooth skin.

  • We recommend that you wax every three to four weeks. Waiting longer may result in a more uncomfortable wax


  • Stay hydrated!

  • You may notice some stubble after your first or 2nd wax, this is normal! Every follicle grows at a different rate.

  • EXFOLIATE! EXFOLIATE! Exfoliating is the MOST important tip when it comes to after. Exfoliate 2-3 times a week and 1-2 days before your wax

  • If you are still noticing bumps, consider investing in an ingrown hair serum

For the next 24-48 Hours

  • You may look red and irritated. Take ibuprofen to calm inflammation

  • Let your skin heal before you go to the beach! DO NOT swim in pool or beach for at least 48 hours after your wax.

  • Do not go into tanning bed for 48 hours

  • Do not go to the gym or sport

  • No hot showers or bath

  • Avoid tight clothes and underwear

  • Wax every 3-4 weeks and know that it gets better and quicker

  • No friction, that means no rubbing with your bf/gf for 48 hours
