If you are experiencing Redness or Burning, then don’t worry, it will go away. However, if the irritation persists then it is better if you go and see a physician.

After 3 Days of Waxing

The risk of infection goes away after around 48 hours. Now, your consideration is ingrown hair. You need to prevent this situation because ingrown hairs can lead to itchiness and redness. And a few simple steps will help you to combat this situation.

  • Take a soft brush or exfoliating gloves and gently work on the waxed areas at regular intervals for 2 to 3 days. Don’t scrub hard…just gentle exfoliation will do.
  • Products like PFB can be used after shower. This product has lactic acid content that removes dead cells so that your hair can grow back through the follicle opening.
  • Keep the skin well hydrated and moisturized. It will make your next waxing session less painful and you will remain hair free for a longer period of time.

As an after-waxing care product, Vitamin E creams are very good. It keeps your skin healthy.


When can you expect to go for the next waxing appointment?

Re-growth of hair can start around one week after the waxing session. It will take around four waxing sessions to reduce the growth rate of your body hair. However, make sure that the hair is at least 5 mm in length so that it can be successfully waxed. Do not shave in between waxing appointments!

With these simple after waxing care tips, you can expect to reap the maximum benefits of waxing and flaunt smooth skin for a longer period of time.
