Waxing Warnings and Precautions Photo by Amit Sharma

Women are quite particular about their looks and unsightly and unwanted hair can spoil the appearance .There are countless hair removal methods available in the market, waxing being the most popular of them all. Waxing is a very effective method to get rid of unwanted hair; however, you need to consider some important points before you go for waxing as leaving these points unconsidered may leave your skin red, scabby and burned. 

Go through the points below and get to know whether waxing is appropriate for you or not.

Key Points to Consider:-

Are you an expectant mother?

If you are pregnant or you take birth control pills, your skin will be more sensitive to waxing. Many people find it difficult to understand the relevance, but this point should never be ignored. You can do a small patch test to find out how your skin is going to react to it. Wait for 24 hours to determine.

Are you a smoker?

If you are a smoker or you suffer from Rosacea, you must speak to your doctor first. Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes unusual redness on the forehead and lower half of the nose. Weak blood vessels causes this to happen. 

Did you drink coffee or  recently?

Have you consumed coffee or alcohol recently? If yes, your skin will be more sensitive to waxing. You should allow your skin 2-3 hours before you go for waxing.

Are you getting any radiation treatment?

If you are getting chemotherapy or any other radiation treatment, you should avoid waxing.

Do you use exfoliators on skin?

If you use exfoliators on skin, you must never wax in that area. The best way is to allow that area at least 3-4 days before getting waxing done. Getting waxing done after using exfoliators will leave skin red and burned.

Direct exposure to sunlight?

If you are exposed to sunlight more often or if you have been recently exposed to sunlight, you should allow your skin some time before you go for waxing.

You Should Not Get Waxing Done If 

1.You have got waxing done in past 24 hrs.
2.You have got piercings over your body.
3.You are using alpha hydroxy acid with over 8% concentration.
4.You have cold sores, scars, burns or any wounds, do not wax in that area.
