Tips to Care for Your Skin After Sugaring

Sugaring leaves your skin feeling smoother than ever before. It’s a gentle hair removal trend that doesn’t cause as much irritation as traditional waxing. You’re bound to love the feeling of being bare, waiting eagerly for your very next appointment. However, you should know what to do for your skin directly following your first (and even your fiftieth!) sugaring session. Your skin will likely need a little more tender love and care than it usually does to help minimize the redness and irritation that removing your hair can bring.

Make sure that you read all of these top tips to help you care for your skin after a sugaring session.

What to Avoid

The first thing that you need to know is what you cannot do after a sugaring session. All of these limitations will last for a full 24 hours following your hair removal. Avoiding these items can prevent you from causing more skin irritation than necessary. In some cases, it may even help you to avoid infection and small breakouts across the surface of your skin. Here are a few of the things that you don’t want to do following a sugaring session:

  • Go swimming at the beach, pool, or lake

  • Visit the sauna or any other spa amenity

  • Sign up for a massage

  • Head to the gym

  • Go tanning

  • Apply thick creams or oil products to skin

  • Scrub the skin or exfoliate it

It might seem a little counterintuitive, but this means that you should not be applying any lotions to the skin after treatment. They can cause further irritation to the skin and even spur breakouts. Deodorant should likewise be avoided if you had your armpits sugared.

While these things only need to be avoided for one day, many experts recommend waiting two days before resuming normal activities. This gives the skin the best chance to heal after your sugaring session.

What to Do

Once the first two days following your treatment have passed, you need to show your skin a little more love. There are a few things that you can do to help keep your bare body feeling soft and touchable. First, you need to make sure that you are regularly cleansing your skin with a deep exfoliating treatment several times each week. This keeps it ready and soft for your very next treatment.

Help to relieve any inflammation or irritation by soaking in a warm bath filled with Dead Sea Salts. Plan to spend at least thirty minutes lounging in the warm water with a great book in your hand. You’ll love the benefits that come along with this luxurious bath.

Make sure that you and your skin stay hydrated. This is another way to keep skin healthy in general, so be sure that you are paying close attention to how much lotion you use and water you drink.
