How To Avoid Acne After Hair Removal
It's almost the weekend and you're ready to get your glow on, but the
errant hairs between your brows and 5 o'clock shadow were not on your
agenda. As you go to make your hair removal appointment, a pang of
anxiety hits you: Are groomed eyebrows really worth the embarrassing
Both waxing and threading can clog the pores and cause redness or acne
around the area. But what if we told you it's possible to have your cake and
eat it too? By following these simple steps, you won't ever need to sacrifice
your defined arches for beautiful, healthy skin.
1. Cleanse and Exfoliate
Massage a natural skin cleanser into your skin to wash your face
thoroughly beforehand. Otherwise bacteria can get pushed into the skin
and clog pores. Exfoliate the areas that will be waxed or threaded, but make
sure to use a product that does not contain microbeads as these actually do

Skin-soothing rinses are perfect for preventing breakouts and promoting
fast healing. Ingredients such as Aloe Vera Leaf Extract and Matricaria
Extract help with anti-inflammation and reduce irritation. Calendula
Flower Extract and Burdock Root Extract are anti-bacterial natural skin
cleansers that promote fast healing.
Try to relax as much as possible after hair removal – read a book, watch TV
etc. Going for a post-wax workout is not a good idea as sweat will soak into
the open pores and likely cause a breakout.
The best way for your skin to get used to hair removal is to go regularly. We
recommend you go every 4-6 weeks so your skin can get used to the
routine and fight off unwanted breakouts. If you wait any longer, it's as if
you are going for the first ever time and it is more likely your skin will have
a bad reaction.
