Any procedure on your skin calls for skin prep. Try to get rid of all the dead cells on the surface of your skin with exfoliating before starting to shave. This will help you get rid of ingrown hair and thus get rid that hair as well when you start shaving. Exfoliating has major skin benefits and regular exfoliation will give you the supermodel skin we all envy.
Post Shave Mask
This is for the smaller areas with pigmentation you want to get rid of, like your knees and armpits. Right after you’re done with your shave, pat dry that area clean. Try brightening masks and use them on your hyperpigmentation. This will be more effective now as there is no barrier between the mask and your skin and the benefits will reach deep into the skin. Try this two-three times a week and notice a difference. If you don’t have any brightening mask, try making one with lemon as an ingredient in it.
If you like a super smooth look and prefer waxing, here’s how to save your skin from painful wax rash and keep your skin smooth.
Soap, Not Powder
Every time you powder your skin before waxing, you’re letting powder enter your open pores right after stripping your hair out. Next time you decide to wax body, keep a clean cloth and a wet clean cloth nearby. Every time you start getting sweaty or oily, just clean your skin with the wet cloth followed by the dry one and continue waxing. Keep your skin as clean as you can while waxing.
Say No to Moisturiser Right After Waxing
Say no to your beautician if she tries to moisturise your skin right after the wax. Wait for some time. Rub some toner on your skin if you can, instead. Or maybe try masking. Give your skin some time to get used to it before clogging your pores with the product.
These are some tried and tested hacks that are being recommended. There’s not an instant difference with the hacks. Like every other skin care procedure, this will take some time to improve your skin. Use these tips every time you remove body hair again.
