What aftercare advice should you follow?
To ease any redness, inflammation or irritation you can put a clean wet towel into the fridge once this is cool enough after around 20 minuets apply it to the waxed area. You can put the towel in the fridge before you come for your waxing appointment and it will be ready when you get home.
You should exfoliate after the first week (if skin is ready) this will help prevent in-grown hairs you can do this once a week if you are prone to ingrown hairs or once a fortnight if not.
Be sure to moisturise after the first day use a non perfume, scent free oil or cream. After wax oils and creams would be better if you can get them.
