Waxing Aftercare

Keep the waxed area clean, and avoid heat and friction during the next 48 hours.

This means for 48 hours:

  • No hot baths or showers (cool to lukewarm water only).
  • No saunas, hot tubs or steam treatments.
  • No tanning (sunbathing, sunbeds or fake tans).
  • No sport, gym work or other exercise.
  • Wear clean, loose fitting clothes to avoid friction on the area.
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
  • Do not apply deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions or other products to the area, other than those recommended by your therapist. (Deodorant & make up can be applied after 24 hours)
  • Moisturise your skin daily (after 24 hours) after your waxing treatment with a Tea Tree cream as the follicles are open and prone to infection.
  • Avoid the use of exfoliating products for at least 72 hours after waxing as they might irritate your skin.
  • Loofah 2-3 times a week in the shower with tea-tree skin wash. The best time to start is 72-hours after your wax. After use, rinse thoroughly and remove all soap and leave the loofah to dry naturally in a well ventilated place.
  • Avoid using natural loofah’s as bacteria thrives in natural fibres. Synthetic ones are best!
  • Don’t pick at ingrown hairs, it may cause scarring, infection and look unappealing. Continue to gently exfoliate.
  • Apply cold compress or anti-histamine cream (if there are no medical reasons that contraindicate this) to reduce redness, hiving or irritation.


You may notice a small amount of re-growth after a week or so. It can take up to 4 treatments for your hair to fall into a growth cycle that gives the best results. Please do not shave between your appointments, if you would like to maintain your smooth appearance, we recommend regular waxing every 4-6 weeks.
