After you have gone through the hair removal period, the last thing you want to do may be to pay attention to skin care. Unfortunately, not taking skin care for a few minutes after skin hair removal can cause unexpected side effects, including infection and ingrown hair. The last step is always an important part of hair removal, but the most important thing is that when you just start hair removal, you are not sure how your body responds to hair removal.
After depilation, it is necessary to prevent infection, anti-inflammatory, and prevent ingrown hair. There are many ways to do this, so read on to get an overview so you can decide what is best for you and your skin.
When you depilate, you pluck the hair by the roots. This can cause minor damage to the hair follicles and put the area at risk of infection within 24-48 hours.
Because the skin that has just been depilated is very easy to be infected, the first thing to do after depilation is to minimize the chance of skin contact with bacteria or other bacteria that may cause infection.
Ideally, you should clean your skin before applying hair removal. Before epilating, you should also clean the head of the epilator. This may be the best way to prevent infection.
So, if your skin is very clean after hair removal, just wipe off the excess hair on the skin with a clean towel.
However, if you didn't clean your skin before starting hair removal, now is the time to do it. Clean the skin gently with a mild soap. Then pat dry with a clean towel.
If you don't have a shower or sink to clean the wound (such as when traveling), you can use a local disinfectant spray or detergent.
Keep skin clean
Once your skin is clean, you need to keep it clean until the risk of infection is reduced. After hair removal, you can't help but touch your smooth skin, but make sure you don't touch your skin with dirty hands.
Because sweat can carry bacteria, try to avoid activities that cause excessive sweating, such as 24-hour exercise.
You should also make sure that you only wear clean clothes.
If you accidentally touch the skin, or allow bacteria or bacteria to come into contact with the shed part, just wash the skin again and dry it with a clean towel. Or use local disinfection products.
After using the epilator, you may have some skin redness and some slight pain, swelling or other signs of inflammation.
If you just have some slight redness and swelling, you really don't need to do anything. This is completely normal and will go away on its own. However, if you are experiencing pain, swelling, a rash caused by histamine, or other body inflammation, you can use many different methods and resources to calm your skin and promote recovery.
Applying a cold compress, frozen vegetable bag or cold wet towel to the skin for 20 minutes can reduce swelling, pain and irritation.
If you have lingering pain, some topical products with Lidocaine will help numb it. Bacteridin has an additional benefit as a preservative, which can help prevent infection.
Tight clothes rub the skin and cause irritation. Wear loose clothes for 1-2 days after hair removal.
If you have a histamine bump, rash, or inflammation, an over-the-counter cortisone cream may help.
