You may want to be known for your lusciously long hair or your thick, full beard, but the last thing you want to be known for is an unkempt bikini line or overly hairy back. As an easy, fast, and safe way to remove your hair, waxing can be done on virtually any part of the body. The next time you come into Twin City Plastic Surgery to get waxed, you might be intrigued to know three weird waxing facts. Read on to learn more.
1. You Can’t Take Hot Baths or Get Into a Hot Tub for 24 Hours
Hot baths and hot tubs are the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day at the office or with kids. However, because your skin is especially sensitive after getting waxed, you are more prone to getting a bacterial infection from a bath or hot tub that is known to harbor germs. Additionally, the hot temperature could irritate your skin and cause it to become red and inflamed.
2. You Are More Prone to Sun Damage
Because your skin will be extra sensitive after getting waxed, we encourage all of our patients to avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours. Unless you want to look like a watermelon or get sun damage, consider picking an indoor activity like going to the movies rather than hitting the beach.
3. Your Bikini Area and Armpits May Darken
If you have noticed the skin around your bikini area darkening after each and every wax, you are not imagining things. In fact, the ingredients in wax can darken hyper sensitive areas of your body like the skin on your bikini area or under your arms. Talk to one of our aestheticians after your next wax to see how you can reduce this darkening.
Let’s face it: it’s fun to know the facts, no matter how weird they are. Our trained aestheticians at Twin City Plastic Surgery will ensure that you get the best waxing experience possible. However, by avoiding hot baths, hot tubs, and the sun, you can make sure that your skin stays smooth and healthy for longer.
