Now that summer has officially arrived, you’re likely looking for impeccable, smooth skin to flaunt your favorite outfits confidently. Waxing holds the key to that all-season glow. Let’s dive into essential tips directly from our team at Blue Pearl Waxing on what to do between waxes to ensure your skin remains beach-ready and irritation-free.

Immediate Aftercare

The first 24 hours after your waxing session is important for keeping your skin soft and smooth. We emphasize the importance of treating your skin with kindness post-wax. Choosing loose-fitting clothing can prevent irritation and allow your skin to breathe, helping avoid unnecessary friction. We also recommend resisting the urge to touch or scratch the waxed area. This can introduce bacteria and potentially lead to ingrown hairs. These tips will help you achieve that smooth, irritation-free feeling for longer.

What to Do Between Waxes: Minimize Hair Appearance and Maintain Skin Health

One of the benefits of waxing is that it removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the skin. Although the process leaves your skin exquisitely smooth, it may be slightly more vulnerable. After waxing, hold off on any exfoliation for at least three days. This will prevent hair breakage and maintain the integrity of your wax. When it’s time, gentle exfoliation can help manage ingrown hairs without disrupting your skin’s natural balance.

Safe Shaving Practices

Stop and reconsider if you find yourself reaching for the razor between waxing appointments. Shaving can counteract the benefits of waxing by altering hair regrowth, making it seem coarser or more noticeable. Remember, regular waxing at Blue Pearl Waxing results in finer, sparser hair over time—patience is a virtue in maintaining smoothness.

Sun Exposure: Protect Your Investment

After a waxing session, your skin is more susceptible to the sun’s rays, making sun protection more critical than ever. Always apply a high-SPF sunscreen before heading outdoors to protect your skin and prevent premature aging or skin irritation. For the ultimate care, we recommend waiting at least 48 hours post-wax before exposing your skin to direct sunlight.

Keeping Skin Hydrated

Hydration is the cornerstone of a healthy skincare regimen, especially between waxes. Moisturizing daily with a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer can keep your skin smooth and ready for your next waxing session. Additionally, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water can positively affect your skin’s condition.

Prepping for Your Next Waxing Session

Finally, what to do between waxes wouldn’t be complete without touching on preparation for your next visit. Ensure your hair is at the ideal length (about a quarter of an inch) for efficient removal, and maintain your skin’s hydration for the best possible results. Blue Pearl tailors each waxing session to individual skin and hair types, promising a customized, attentive experience each time.
