Epilation - removal of unwanted hair from the root. Very often, after an epilation procedure, for example, with wax or an electric epilator, irritation appears on the skin in the form of redness and rashes. The situation is unpleasant, but not fatal. Skin irritation after epilation can be treated.
It is necessary
- - lotion with alcohol;
- - "Miramistin", chlorgesidine;
- - "Panthenol";
- - tea tree oil;
- - aloe;
- - dry chamomile, calendula, celandine;
- - alcoholic tincture of eucalyptus or calendula;
- - baby cream, baby powder
After finishing the procedure, wipe the skin with an alcohol-based lotion. This will kill bacteria and tighten the pores. Use any moisturizer after disinfection.
You can use other antiseptics instead of rubbing alcohol to dry your skin. These include chlorhexidine, Miromistin and the like. By the way, these funds are preferable to use after epilation of the bikini area, since they are safe for mucous membranes. An alternative to antiseptic solutions and alcohol-containing lotions is antiseptic ointments.
After epilation, apply Panthenol. This remedy is used to remove, heal small wounds, scrapes and burns. Apply Panthenol to irritated skin and leave for a quarter of an hour.
Use tea tree oil to relieve irritation. It is an excellent natural antiseptic that perfectly soothes the skin. Dissolve 2-3 tea tree oils in 1 tablespoon of olive oil or any other vegetable oil, then apply the mixture to the epilated skin.
If you have aloe, then no skin problems are terrible for you. Tear off an aloe leaf, wash it thoroughly, cut off the thorns and, cutting lengthwise, apply to the area where irritation has appeared.
Herbal decoctions relieve irritation well. Brew calendula, chamomile, or celandine. After 15-20 minutes, filter the broth, moisten a cotton pad in it and apply to the inflamed skin. You can also use alcoholic tinctures of eucalyptus or calendula.
Use traditional “baby products” to treat irritated skin - powder, baby cream. Cream with aloe or chamomile relieves irritation well.
