Aftercare for Bikini Waxing in Mukilteo July 30, 2015 Waxing in general, and bikini waxing in particular, has long been considered to offer an excellent alternative to time-consuming shaving or costly laser hair removal. The procedure is relatively free from discomfort, leaves the delicate skin smooth and soft for weeks and is most affordable. Whatever your reason for bikini waxing in Mukilteo, whether for aesthetic, cleanliness or religious purposes, it is quite important to maintain a standard for aftercare for optimum long-lasting results. Weekly gentle exfoliation of the area maintains clear and soft skin. Immediately post-wax, however, it is advisable to wait at least 4-5 days before beginning this regular treatment. A product containing aloe vera encourages skin softness. For at least 24 hours after your bikini wax, lukewarm showers with no gels or lotions are recommended. Hot water, immersion baths and body care products can irritate the briefly tender skin. If redness persists, applying ice or a cool compress offers relief from inflammation. After the first day, application of soothing lavender and tea tree oils also provide comfort. Avoid exposing the area to sunlight for a couple of days after waxing to lessen irritation and utilize specially formulated products on a daily basis that minimize future hair growth.
