Treating post-waxing and post-shaving skin irritation with aloe vera

Post-waxing aloe vera can soothe your irritated skin, whether you have had laser treatment or used a razor or shaver. In all cases, you should be aware of the messages your epidermis is sending you, especially when you subject it to stress. This is the only way to repair it and restore it to its usual softness and hydration.

Why does my skin become irritated after waxing and shaving?

The skin becomes irritated due to the body's response to hair removal. The hair follicles become inflamed, creating redness in the treated area. Irritation may become more visible in those who suffer from dry skin, to the point of rashes and a feeling of hypersensitivity that may cause pain.

If you shave or wax frequently, you are probably already familiar with skin irritation. It often leads to wounds when you are exposed to high temperatures, such as a hot bath or the sun's rays during the summer season. Folliculitis is a common problem that tends to appear in the most sensitive areas of our epidermis, such as the armpits and groin.

Infections are another thing to watch out for, which is why it is so important to take good care of your skin. Sweat also causes the skin to remain irritated for longer. If you know how to properly moisturise your epidermis, you can avoid a lot of discomfort in the short and long term. A post-waxing gel based on aloe vera will undoubtedly make all the difference.

How to treat skin irritation with aloe vera

First of all, exfoliation is essential before shaving or epilation, as it prepares the skin by removing dead skin cells, allowing for a smoother shave and more efficient epilation. In addition, this process helps to clean pores and prevent ingrown hairs. By exfoliating the skin, cell renewal is promoted, leaving the skin more even, rejuvenated, hydrated and elastic.

You can exfoliate with the Volcanic Body Scrub, made with pumice, cinnamon oil, cajeput oil and clove, ingredients that promote peripheral microcirculation and have soothing properties. The way to apply this scrub is very simple, you only need to massage in circles to obtain incredible results that you will be able to see immediately.

After you have removed the exfoliation products, it is time for shaving or waxing. To prevent the effects of irritation, you need to start by treating your skin gently. When using a razor, avoid pressing too hard and always select a sharp blade so that you only need a single stroke, not several.

A pimple is enough to cause an injury during epilation, so you should rinse the treated area of your skin once you have finished removing all the hair.  If there is a wound, you can apply some neutral soap to clean it. You can also cover it with a piece of paper or, if necessary, press it with cotton wool for a few minutes until the bleeding stops.

Once you have finished shaving and waxing, it is time to wash and dry your face or chosen area of the body thoroughly. Then it's time to apply the aloe vera lotion. In fact, aloe vera after shaving gives the skin an almost immediate soothing sensation. Moreover, due to its anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties, it will provide great relief, restoring the necessary softness and hydration.

You can massage by exerting light pressure and drawing small circles with your fingertips to facilitate the absorption of the product. This is how easy it is to take care of your skin, preventing redness and discomfort that can get in the way of you carrying out your usual activities.
