Waxing Aftercare

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next 24 - 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 24 - 48 hours.
This means:

  • No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).

  • No saunas, hot tubs, massage or steam treatments.

  • No tanning (sunbathing, sun beds or fake tans).

  • No sport, gym work or other exercise.

  • Avoid scratching or touching the treated area with unwashed hands.

  • Wear clean, loose fitting clothes.

  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.

  • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist.

  • You should only resume using any products contain retinol/retinoid no sooner than 72 hours after your wax.

  • Cleanse and exfoliate the area regularly once there is no more redness or irritation. Removing dead skin and other debris can help release embedded hair and prevent ingrown hairs.

  • Apply Cold Compresses.Cold compresses work great at calming red skin and reducing the appearance of red bumps, irritation or inflammation. You can also massage an ice cube directly on the waxed skin. If you can't bear this sensation, let the ice cube melt on a sponge puff and then compress your skin with it.

  • Consider Cool Gels. Cool gels based on naturally calming ingredients like Aloe vera or tea tree oil can also help soothe freshly waxed skin. You can apply them regularly for a few days after your appointment to refresh and protect the area.

 Lash & Brow Tinting Aftercare

  • Do not touch or rub your eyes, eyelashes or eyebrows immediately after the treatment.

  • If redness or irritation occurs, apply a cool damp cotton compress to the eye area. If symptoms persist for more than 24 hours seek medical advice.

  • The effects of the tint will start to diminish within 2-3 weeks as hair grows out and the tint color fades. Strong sunlight/UV light can make the tint color fade faster.

  • Avoid washing your hair, eyelids, eyelashes, eyebrows, or swimming for 24 hours, as these activities can cause the tint results to fade. Also avoid exfoliating facial cleansers. Those containing AHA’s or other chemical exfoliates may decrease the life of your tint. A gentle facial cleanser or eye makeup remover is recommended.

  • Do not apply makeup or mascara to lashes or receive any other eye treatments for at least 24 hours after the lash or brow tinting treatment.

  • Try to use oil-free facial products around the eye area to prolong the tint color.

  • You can receive the lash or brow tinting treatment every 3-4 weeks.

 

Spraytan Aftercare

  • Do not shower for at least 6 to 8 hours after the spray tanning solution has been applied. This waiting period allows maximum tanning solution absorption for the skin.

  • After the waiting period has passed, shower in warm water (it should not be too hot) and use a light, gentle body wash. The guide colour will run out, and when the water is no longer brown, pat dry yourself with a towel.

  • Avoid activities that will make you sweat. This means no exercises, sports, dancing or jogging. You should also avoid the sun to prevent sweating. Sweating creates streaks in the tan.

  • Spray tan before and after care involves avoiding chlorinated swimming pools that easily react with the tanning solution and cause an uneven fade.

  • Moisturising the skin daily will help make the tan last longer, as well as help it to fade evenly.

  • Do not use lotions or creams on your skin which contain Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHA’s) or Glycolic Acid as they tend to exfoliate the skin. Use a neutralizing pH body wash.

  • Once you have bathed after the tanning session (after 6-8 hours), only then should you use perfumes, deodorants and makeup.

  • Do not touch your body while your spray tan is drying off. This can leave finger prints on your body!
