Tips To Prevent Skin Redness Post Waxing

Waxing is definitely a curse on women especially because we have to get it done mandatory. I sometimes feel it unfair on women to be born with so much of hair. The pain to get you waxed and then deal with the pain and redness is something even more agitating. For some people, it disappears within an hour or so but for some people, the inflammation stays for a few days, which can be painful as well as irritating to look at.

Anyway, I am bringing to you some solutions to combat this problem and we may find some respite with these.

All you need here is to mix equal parts of milk, water and ice and apply to your skin. This will sooth you and gives your skin a much needed respite that too quickly. You can use it twice or thrice as needed creating the mixture every time afresh. Also, this can be used at any part you have got waxed so be sure to use it without worrying.

Cucumbers are known to be good to skin always. Their cooling effect is very good and makes your skin feel relieved of every pain and irritation sooner than any cream or ointment. You can use a raw cucumber or make a pack of cucumber using a blender and apply it.

If applying a cucumber directly, do ensure that you reverse the slices once they are warm. Flip the slice to the other side to ensure that the cooler side is touching your skin.

You can also add aloe vera gel to make the paste thicker, if you are using blended cucumber.

Apply apple cider vinegar

Mint and Green tea together are just too good!


Take close to 4-5 green tea bags and about 2 cups of mint leaves. Pour boiling water over the tea bags and mix mint leaves. Now let the mixture cool down and drench well. Soak a cotton bub into the mixture and apply on the rashes and inflammation to see a swifter relief.
