Orange County is notorious for women who are tan, thin, and superbly dressed. We aren’t all like that, of course, but we live in the OC. We want to be put together, free of hair. We don’t want any after-effects of hair removal so we need the best advice for sugaring aftercare.
Once you have decided upon sugaring as your hair removal method (which is the best choice, for sure), you need some good sugaring aftercare advice, so you know what to do afterwards and between appointments. For certain, your skin will be sensitive, especially the first time, even after sugaring.
The Importance of Sugaring Aftercare
I cannot emphasize the importance of sugaring aftercare. You go out and spend all your time, money, and energy getting a Brazilian sugaring only to not follow through with aftercare. That kind of defeats the purpose of having smooth, delicious skin, doesn’t it?
So…what are you supposed to do in between each sugaring, anyhow?
- Exfoliate! Those little red bumps are rooted in dead skin cells. As part of your sugaring aftercare, you need to choose the proper exfoliant. You want to choose one that is not highly scented and one that has more rounded granules. Even though they are natural, apricot kernel defoliants are jagged and can tear up the skin, especially delicate skin. Look for sugars and pearl-style exfoliants after sugaring. Only use loofahs and mitts that are dried thoroughly to keep them free of bacteria and only use them on rougher body parts, like your back and shoulders. Improper exfoliation after sugaring can lead to ingrown hairs and more red bumps.
- Moisturize! Another contributor to red bumps is dry skin. Again, you have to be aware of using the right moisturizer for the right part of your body. With that said, you want to use a moisturizer that has some antiseptic, as well as healing properties. Lotions with Tea tree oil, witch hazel, and aloe vera are your best bets.
- Bathe! We know you bathe but here, I am telling you to take an actual bath, as opposed to a shower. Use dead sea salts in the water to prevent any redness, heat, and swelling. Be careful the first 24 hours after your sugaring, though. It may sting.
Sugaring is a specialty business. It involves techniques beyond ripping hair off of skin. Look for a salon that is reputable and clean. Pure Clover is a sugaring expert, knowing how to care for you before, during and after your sugaring.
