We have all suffered from the uncomfortable red bumps that appear on our skin. These itchy, painful bulges that can show up on the body are one of the most common and bothersome side effects people experience after a waxing session. Even though quality other zones that sweat often or where there is a lot of friction from clothing.
- Exfoliation. Removing dead skin cells periodically reduces the chance of obstructed follicles. The members of the American Academy of Dermatology explain that exfoliation should be done anywhere from once a day to twice a week, depending on the skin type.
- Good hygiene. Normally, we wake up, take a shower, go to work, spend the whole day in our clothes, sweat if it's hot, touch the doors of the bus or subway, work out at the gym, go to dinner or the movies… in short, we spend all day in contact with elements that can harm the skin. Good skin hygiene is key.
- Do not remain in your gym clothes. Those sweaty fitness clothes can trigger yeast infections on the skin. Whether you practice CrossFit, take a yoga class or a 3-mile run, clothes should be removed and the skin should be cleansed as soon as possible.
Different factors influence the appearance of red bumps after waxing: how the person treats their skin at home, the quality of the wax, the technique of the esthetician, the hygiene of the waxing salon. In some cases, people are more vulnerable to suffer from irritated or infected skin than others for genetic reasons. What licensed estheticians can do is use products and techniques to reduce the possibility of excessive red bumps, and follow the proper hygiene protocols and safe procedures.
If you own a beauty business or a professional waxing salon, it's essential you add post-waxing treatments to your services. Calming oils, tonics, or gels refresh and soothe the skin. Search for products like our creams that come with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and moisturizing properties so that the skin recovers faster. If a client comes to you for advice when red bumps do not disappear or become filled with pus, the best thing to do is refer them to a doctor who can examine the skin and prescribe antibiotic or antifungal medication if necessary.
