Hair removal blunders you should avoid at all costs

16th February 2014

Looking attractive all the time requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Most of us are likely to have tried various hair removal techniques already such as waxing, shaving and laser hair removal. Below are a few tips on hair removal blunders that should also be avoided:

Tip 1: Putting on fragranced moisturiser after shaving

You may set off an allergic reaction if you put on a fragranced moisturiser immediately after shaving. Skin experts have also even said that when acids or fragrances get into skin that has just been exfoliated by a razor, you could feel a burning sensation or experience some sort of chemical reaction. For this reason it's better to be safe and use a fragrance-free cream after you have shaved.

Tip 2: Get a wax or laser hair removal a week before you begin your menstrual cycle

Stay clear of hair removal procedures such as waxing or any form of permanent hair removal techniques like laser a week before your menstrual cycle kicks in, as women tend to be more sensitive during this time. There is also a risk that hair follicles may swell and turn red at this time.

Tip 3: Avoid sharing razors

Avoid sharing razors, not only is it unhygienic but there is a risk that it can cause folliculitis. This is an infection of the hair follicle, which can trigger a rash.

To conclude...

Hair removal plays a big role in the maintenance of our appearance, so it's important to get it right. Past research has shown that the demand for laser hair removal procedures has improved significantly over the past few years, but it's still important to do your research, so make sure you visit one of the laser hair removal clinics like sk:n to talk to one of our experts.
