8 Effective Ways to Control Redness and Itching after a Bikini Wax

1. Keep it hydrated

You should always keep your skin hydrated after waxing and never let it go dry under any condition. Dry skin can lead to various type of problems, hence it is essential to keep your skin hydrated all day long. Just after you are done with a bikini wax, apply some fresh aloe vera gel on the parts and massage for some time. This will help control inflammation and also keep your skin hydrated.

2. Avoid sun exposure

Sun can be your biggest enemy so make sure you say a strict no to sunny business. Bikini wax makes the upper layer of skin extra sensitive and exposure to the sun can make it extra sensitive and tender, leading to redness and sores. So, it is advised that you avoid going out in the sun for 24 to 48 hours.

3. Avoid steam

Not only steam, I say you should stay away from hot temperature or hot water as they may lead to tender and irritated skin. Exposing your skin to steam can make it dry and itchy. So it is best to avoid extreme heat after waxing.

4. Avoid intercourse

Indulging in intercourse soon after a bikini wax session is a strict no-no. You may feel sexy, but you should control for some time. According to experts, you should not get involved in sexual activities until 24 hours of your waxing session. This is the time when your body is more susceptible to bacteria, hence your chances of developing infections are high.

5. Ice

When you feel itching or see red bumps around the bikini area, it is always better to soothe down the area using some ice packs or cold packs. Always make sure that the bikini area is clean and also the ice cubes you are using are fresh and hygienic. Another good way is using some cucumber slices around the area to soothe and hydrate your skin. Other than this, you can use wet wipes to clean, soothe and hydrate the irritated skin.

6. Exfoliate it

The chances of ingrown hair increases after a waxing session. There are chances of dead skin cell
build up which might clog your pores. To exfoliate well and to make your waxing session smoother, use a mild scrub to exfoliate your skin.

7. Maintain your schedule

If you don’t suffer any serious problems after your bikini wax sessions, you should maintain a schedule and get it done after an equal interval of time. All you need to do is just keep a track of your schedule so that the growth is uniform. Avoid waxing your skin way too often and make sure your hair grows 1/4th inch.
