Waxing is essential if you want to have silkier skin. Whether you do it constantly or just for a special occasion, such as a trip to the beach or when wearing a sleeveless dress. 

Regardless of the area to be waxed, it is normal that after performing this procedure the skin begins to be a little more irritated and dry, as it suffers from small pulls due to waxing, this can be minimized by being treated by expert hands and by performing certain care at the end of your waxing. Leave your skin in our hands! At Artepil, we care about looking good, radiant and healthy; that is why we bring you these tips on how to treat your skin after waxing in Puerto Vallarta.

Waxing is undoubtedly the best option if you wish to reduce your hair, one of the reasons is because of the excellent results it offers, your skin will be silky for longer, the hair will take longer to grow, it is not as aggressive as the constant use of a razor, and it is also much more economical than laser hair removal.

What to do before waxing?

  • Do not expose yourself to the sun or tanning beds, at least 3 days before your session, to avoid making your skin more sensitive than usual.
  • The size of the hair in the area to be waxed should be larger than half a centimeter.
  • If you are using medications containing the active ingredient isotetrinoin, you will not be able to perform hair removal, as it directly affects the hydration of your skin.

What to do after waxing?

  • Moisturize the newly waxed area with neutral creams, without alcohol or scents. 
  • Avoid bathing or soaking in hot water, your skin is sensitive after waxing; this will only irritate it more.
  • Do not sunbathe or use tanning beds.
  • Days after waxing, avoid wearing tight clothing, as it may encourage ingrown hairs.
  • Try to exfoliate at least twice a week, this will keep you smooth and prevent ingrown hairs.
