Waxing When You Have Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive skin, you’re probably used to having to pick different products. You may know that you need different face wash, laundry detergent, lotion, and shampoo than your friends. You may even believe that your sensitive skin prevents you from doing certain things, including waxing. Good news: you can ditch the razor and sensitive shave cream today! Waxing can be perfectly safe for sensitive skin. The important part is to ensure that the quality of the wax and the skill of the waxer is up to snuff. If you have sensitive skin and want to switch to the most effective method of hair removal, book an appointment with Brazils Waxing Center. We are the waxing salon in Florida that has the high-quality wax and expert waxing technicians that can help you achieve the smooth, hairless look you desire. If you are very concerned, you can speak with your dermatologist first, and we will make sure that our waxing services are right for you by doing a patch test to ensure your skin can take the wax. Additionally, there are some extra steps you can take to protect your sensitive skin from irritation.


Keep it clean

Before you come to our waxing salon for our services, set yourself up for success by showering before your appointment. When your skin is clean, there is less chance of bacteria being present and causing infection. Additionally, make sure your skin is completely dry.

Proceed with caution

It is particularly crucial for people with sensitive skin to take care to not wax over broken, inflamed, or injured skin. If you have blemishes, abrasions, or cuts on the part of your body you wish to wax, your waxing technician will not perform the service for the sake of your skin’s health. If you are dealing with any of these problems, give yourself some time to heal before getting waxed.

Use the right waxing salon

Many of the most important factors for ensuring that your sensitive skin isn’t irritated by waxing are dependent on your waxing salon. For example, the type of wax used has a big impact on how well sensitive skin responds. At Brazils Waxing Center, we are constantly improving our wax formula to ensure it has the best ingredients possible without artificial ingredients. Additionally, using the wrong technique can cause significant irritation. Our waxing technicians are specifically trained to use a method that causes less irritation and pain. Finally, our use of warm wax ensures that sensitive skin won’t be burned by wax that is too hot.


Ice immediately

After you have finished your wax, you can do a lot for the inflammation by icing or putting cold water on your skin. Alternatively, you could prepare before your appointment by brewing some tea bags and sticking them in the fridge beforehand for a soothing aftercare treatment.

Use the right aftercare products

Some aftercare products work just fine for some people, but are not good for sensitive skin. Make sure you aren’t doing more harm than good by choosing the right products. Choose something that has natural, gentle ingredients, like our Elate Moisturizing Cream.

Keep your eyes peeled

In the days following your wax, watch your skin for any signs of irritation. While some swelling and redness is normal for a little while after waxing, there are certain signs that indicate a more serious reaction, including bleeding, extreme pain, and scabbing. These side effects generally suggest that waxing isn’t right for you.
