Bikini line sugaring is the latest trend that we all love. We have tried different kinds of hair removal treatments, and so far, sugaring gives us a good result.
The effectiveness of sugaring to our body doesn't mean we are complacent about it. The natural process of sugaring, if done correctly won't give us headaches.
However, negligence on our part means harmful effects to the body.
Similar to all other hair removal treatments, sugaring has its do's and don'ts. They are simple instructions, even a first grader can understand it.
However, some clients are challenging the rules. So, the effects are unpleasant.
Wear loose-fitting clothes. Your skin is sensitive after the treatment and on the following days.
You should wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid any friction from the fabric to the skin as it may cause ingrown hairs and irritations.
Exfoliate all the time. Exfoliate dry skin using salt scrubs or any soft scrubbing materials like loofah and glove-scrub.
Scrubbing and exfoliating reduce oil clogged in the pores. This process should be done 3 to 7 times week. Rub your scrubbing gel in the treated area so that the skin will loosen up.
Drink plenty of water. Your sensitive skin cause irritation if the open follicles are experiencing discomforts due to the urine.
Soak your body in a water mixed with dead sea salt. After, the sugaring appointment, soak your body in the shower. Running water is safe for your sensitive skin. You can do this in the next 24 to 58 hours.
Use lubricant during the treatment. The lubricant serves as a barrier for your sensitive skin.
Avoid scratching your skin. The only downside of sugaring every after session is the build-up of skin sensitivity.
If this happens, in the following days after the appointment you will feel the itchiness of the treated area. If it's possible, do not touch your skin. The irritation will only cause infections.
Don't exercise after bikini line sugaring. Exercise causes your body to sweat, and if the sweat is in the treated area, this can cause irritation. Schedule your sugaring during your non-workout week.
Avoid bathing in tubs. Steady water like in the tub harbors bacteria. Your sensitive skin will catch these bacteria and may cause infection. Use showers and lukewarm water instead.
Get away from tanning beds. Avoid using tanning beds especially if you had just your bikini line sugaring. The treated area is very sensitive to UV lights. Stay away from the sun as well after sugaring.
There you go, the do's and don'ts during and after bikini line sugaring. The beauty of your skin is very important.
Hair removal treatments add the glow to our skin, but it's also prone to bacteria, sensitivity, and irritation.
To stay beautiful and away from complications, follow the advice of your dermatologist. There's no harm in following orders from the experts.
