After removing unwanted hair, severe skin inflammation often appears, especially in the bikini line. To avoid the unpleasant consequences of depilation, you need to follow a number of preventive measures.
Before removing unwanted hair, wash your skin thoroughly with antibacterial gel or soap. If you are experiencing not only irritation, but also ingrown hair, then use a scrub. Treat moisturized skin with vigorous movements, then rinse thoroughly under cool running water. You need to cleanse your skin even if you use an epilator, wax strips, or depilatory cream.
If you are shaving hair, do not forget to apply a special foam or gel to the skin 5 minutes before removing the vegetation. During this time, the skin will become softer, hairs will be removed much easier. Soap cannot replace shaving foam, even the highest quality.
After hair removal, generously dampen your skin with aftershave lotion. Don't forget to apply an antibacterial moisturizer as well. Do not use oily products, they clog the pores of the skin, after which redness and pimples appear.
When irritation has already appeared, lubricate the inflamed skin with salicylic alcohol or ointment. The redness will begin to subside quickly enough.
Calendula has a bactericidal and healing effect. Buy a tincture and dilute it with water in a 1 to 1 ratio. Treat inflamed skin 2-3 times a day. If the irritation is very strong, then do not dilute the calendula tincture. A slight burning sensation of the skin is possible, which disappears after a few minutes.
Treat sensitive skin after depilation with a cream containing zinc. This trace element has a beneficial effect on the skin, promotes the healing of microcracks and eliminates pustules.
To avoid irritation, remove unwanted vegetation regularly. First, it will be easier to do this, because you do not have to make a lot of movements with the machine. And secondly, the skin adapts and, accordingly, does not become inflamed.
