Aftercare and exfoliation are always the most important part of getting the best results from waxing. Exfoliating on a regular basis will not only help to sync up the cycles faster to obtain the longest lasting results but also to prevent build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin so that the finer softer hair isn’t blocked and therefore causing ingrowns.

  • It is important to give your skin a rest for 48 hours post wax service.
  • Do not do anything that may irritate or sensitize your skin.
  • Activities with prolonged heat such as saunas, steam rooms, sunbathing or Jacuzzis should be avoided for 48 hours.
  • Working out or extraneous activity should be avoided for atleast 24 hours to allow redness or sensitivity to subside. If you must work out, it is always recommended to cleanse the waxed area immediately afterward to avoid any breakouts.
  • It is typical to experience sensitivity for up to 24-48 hours post your wax service. And if any redness or swelling lasts longer the 2-3 hours post wax, it is recommended to take an ibuprofen to help reduce inflammation.
  • Please keep in mind that waxing exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells off, which is why the skin feels so soft post-wax, however due to this your skin becomes more photo sensitive so it is recommended to avoid sun exposure (both natural and artificial) for up to 72 hours afterward.
Here at See You Next Tuesday Wax Parlor, I always recommend a two-part exfoliation process described below:
Manual Exfoliation:

This should be done with a natural bristled brush, it is recommended to do this in the shower and apply a PH Balanced soap and water to the brush and use it in small circular motions in the waxed area to slough off the dead skin cells.

Please note: that should you have a problem with severe ingrowns, you can use a dry brush on dry skin for a more abrasive exfoliation.

Chemical Exfoliation:

We recommend using a product called PFB that aids the skin and follicles from building up with excess dirt and oils, therefore clogging the pores and creating ingrown that can look like pimples, blackheads or cysts. PFB contains glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids that seep into the pore and drain them of any excess dirt, oils or buildup. *you can read more about PFB by following the link below.

It is important to exfoliate on a daily basis and just make it part of your daily routine, if it is done daily, you don’t need to spend more then 30 seconds to 1 minute on it. However, if you can’t get to exfoliation every day, atleast try to do it a couple times a week and just spend a little longer exfoliating.

Also note, that if the chemical exfoliant begins to dry out your skin and begin to make it look like its peeling after a sunburn, it just means that the salicylic acid may be too much for your skin type. Everyone’s skin has a different amount of oil production so if this happens to you, do not stop using the product, just decrease the frequency but continue to use on a regular basis to prevent that build up.

It is never recommended to use lotion on the Bikini area. Should you need to moisturize that area, always opt for a natural based oil, coconut, vitamin E, grapeseed, jojoba and almond oils are all good options for moisturizing this area. Lotions can be comedogenic (clogs the pours) and sit on top of the skin resulting in more ingrown, while natural oils are absorbed into the skin and work better for moisturizing.

Here at See You Next Tuesday we also recommend using an all-natural moisturizing oil called FUR Oil and it is made with the cleanest facial-grade, vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic ingredients that are dermatologically and gynecologically tested. They don’t formulate with mineral oil, silicones, parabens, synthetic fragrances, or artificial dyes. That’s why Fur is safe enough for your most intimate areas, and effective from head to toe.
