The Waxologist Aftercare Advice Guide
Here are a few Tips on Keeping yourself Smooth and minimising adverse reactions to Waxing!
Redness, Bumps and tenderness for up to 48hrs after a wax are normal reactions but if you’re concerned you can always reach us by emailing hello@thewaxologist.co.uk

In the first 48 hours after a wax…

Don’t go on a sunbed or sunbathe, after waxing your skin is more sensitive and likely to burn.
Don’t take a hot bath or shower (just lower the temp slightly and you’ll be fine).
Don’t go work up a sweat in the gym or partake in any hard exercise or sport. After waxing your follicle is open to bacteria so avoid excessive sweating.
Don’t apply fake tan or Make up to waxed areas. Any lotions with scent in could cause a reaction. Waxed skin will also pick up more tan.
Don’t use deodorant, perfume, potions or lotions that have not been advised by The Waxologist.
Avoid the following: Heat, Friction, tight clothes, swimming in chlorinated pools.

Do Wear Loose comfortable clothing
Do Apply an antiseptic cream regularly for 48 hrs or longer
