With summer season around the corner, everybody has got waxing on their mind, and we read your mind! So we bring to you facts about waxing that you might not have been aware of before but that you most certainly need to have in your arsenal to make your waxing less painful and more wholesome! So read on to discover the 5 things you might not have known about waxing before!

5 things you probably didn't know about waxing

1. Do not wax when taking anti-acne pills

anti-acne pills

If you are currently taking pills that target acne, then you should probably wait it out before waxing because acne pills can make your skin sensitive, and we all know that sensitive skin equates to a painful waxing experience. Hence, we recommend you skip waxing and try alternate methods of hair removal when you are on acne medication.

2. Exfoliate before and after the waxing session

Exfoliate

An exfoliating scrub is the key to the kingdom of smooth skin when you choose the wax hair removal procedure to remove body hair. Exfoliating before waxing makes all the hair move in one direction, which makes it easier to wax. Although waxing is a preferred way of waxing for many, it comes with side effects such as bumpy skin and red spots on the legs, which are called strawberry legs. Exfoliating using a proper chemical exfoliator like Thrive Co’s BUMPS ERASER EXFOLIATING SCRUB hydrates your skin, leaving it silky smooth! Not only that, but it also corrects uneven skin texture!

3. Skip working out for the next two days

Extreme swearing post-waxing can lead to irritation and redness, so it's best to skip working out for a couple of days to save yourself from the irritation.

4. Protect your skin from the sun

Just like any other skin care-related procedure like chemical peels that requires you to lather up your sunscreen before you head out into the sun, waxing also requires you to wear your sunscreen before stepping outdoors!

5. Avoid hot showers

Avoid hot showers

Hot showers, hot yoga sessions, tight clothing, Zumba classes, and a hot sauna What do they all have in common? Heat and friction, and these two components, do not pair well with post-waxed skin because these things do not let your skin breathe, and your skin needs to breathe after waxing, so do not involve yourself in any one of these activities for the first 24 hours post-racing.

We hope that you learned something new today about waxing! But just reading them wouldn’t suffice; it is important you remember them and practise them the next time you wax, and with that, do not forget to check out Thrive Co’s BUMPS ERASER EXFOLIATING SCRUB. See you another day with another blog!
