Best Post-Wax Treatment after Getting Your Brow Waxed
Getting your brow waxed can be a bit painful, no matter how professional the person is. Waxing is a process that can be a little rough on your skin. Additionally, the skin on your brows happens to be much thinner and sensitive than the skin on other areas of your body.
Plus, for most people, waxing can do more than leaving a little bit of redness. It could cause ingrown hair, pimples, and other skin issues. That’s why your brows need to be treated appropriately every time you are getting them waxed.
Now, everyone might have their own preferences about what works and what doesn’t but I’m sharing my best, post-wax treatment. It’s simple, easy and you can try it out today!
Soothe the Area
First things first, you need to soothe the area. No matter how quickly the wax was done, the process still involves ripping your hair out from the follicle. It’s going to leave your skin feeling red and painful. For this, you can use some aloe gel or even some witch hazel.
Pop the aloe gel into the fridge for at least 15 to 20 minutes and use it when it’s cool. The cool gel will make your skin feel better and will help to reduce redness and swelling faster. You can leave it on until it gets absorbed into the skin.
Antiseptic for Sensitive Skin
If your skin starts to break out after getting waxed, you need to use an antiseptic cream. What this means is that germs and other pollutants are entering the newly opened and inflamed pores. Until your skin heals itself a little, the antiseptic cream will help to keep the area clean and sanitized.
For best results, mix the antiseptic cream with the aloe gel and apply it to your brows. In some cases though, the aloe gel and witch hazel are more than enough to get rid of the germs in your skin.
Inflammation can occur when you get your brows waxed and it can either disappear within 10 to 15 minutes or stay for hours. There is no in-between. If you think the inflammation is not going away, it’s time to brew some green tea using some tea bags.
Now, remove the tea bags and let them cool before you apply them to your eyebrows. Teabags can not only reduce inflammation, but they’re also great for countering dark circles, puffy eyes and more. Plus, almost everyone has these in their pantry.
And there you have it, the perfect post-wax treatment methods to try. Another word for the wise here is that you should wash your hands before you touch your freshly waxed brows. Touching the irritated skin with dirty hands is going to cause breakouts. Similarly, inflammation and itchy skin can also happen if you keep touching your brows. So, wait a bit before you start admiring the work with your hands.
With the help of this post-wax treatment, you can ensure that you have the best brows possible without any worries.
