How to avoid skin irritation and inflammation after depilation

Depilation is a grooming procedure that is popular among women of different ages. This procedure is carried out in different ways: sugar paste, melted wax or wax strips. But it all unites one result – the hairs are removed from the follicles.

For the skin, this procedure is always painful. Even if everything is done correctly, and there is no visible damage to the skin, after a while irritation and inflammation may appear on the skin. This indicates that the skin gave a reaction to the removal of hairs.

This reaction can last up to two weeks. And as a result, instead of smooth skin, will get aesthetically unattractive skin with redness and rashes.

But such a reaction can be prevented. To do this should:

  • Before starting the procedure, scrub the desired area.
  • This will exfoliate the keratinized skin and make the skin more pliable.

Massage the skin

  • Limit trips to baths, saunas

You can not go to such places for a day after the procedure.
