Happy Summer! Time to hit the beaches!
Of course exfoliating and using Salicylic acid products helps to a great extent, but they aren't the sure shot solution to avoid the bumps down there. Regular waxing lowers the chance of growth of ingrown hair. But the follicle-conversion is the most irritating thing happening in the area, and the major reason behind it is tight clothing, such as tight jeans, shorts, etc. The ingrown hair are compressed, curling back into follicle due to the tight clothing. Also, shaving must be avoided as much as possible. And if you can't just do it without the razor, use a sharp razor and exfoliate the bikini region before shaving.
In summer, it's really uncomfortable to go on the beach (which actually is very frequent) with even the slightest of hair patch in the bikini region. Regular waxing in a time interval of three to six weeks is perfect for the sensitive skin region. Actually, the more we wax, the weaker the hair follicle becomes, ultimately making it easier and less painful to remove hair. But the most important thing is to maintain a wax cycle all over the year, as with regular waxing, the duration between treatments will increase.
Simplest thing to do prewax is to keep the skin properly hydrated, and the best way is to drink loads and loads of water. This goes for entire body, actually. Also, using a proper moisturizer on the wax region prior your next waxing appointment will keep the hair healthy. On waxing, the healthy hair is properly removed from the root, whereas dry hair break in the middle or at the skin surface, leaving the wax region non-smooth.
Three things: Going to the proper parlor which uses the best and natural wax that is easy on skin and is applied on body temperature and is gentle on skin while the hair is being removed. Second would be NOT DRINKING ALCOHOL before the wax appointment as it tightens the skin pores, making it difficult to remove the hair even with the proper elastic wax. And lastly, maintain a proper and regular waxing schedule. It results in hair growth in a particular pattern, making it easy to remove hair with lesser pain.
First and foremost, they shouldn't be doing double dipping. It would be really good to go to a center which solely offers waxing services. And if you're not lucky enough to find one out, make sure the salon you go to smells fresh and looks clean. The waxing room should appear to be extra-hygienic and the wax should be freshly-made and either highly sanitized or new for your service.
Apply a cold/ice pack to the waxed area to reduce inflammation and close the pores. When the inflammation somewhat reduces, apply a soft and soothing moisturizer and avoid wearing tight clothes as it may turn the skin sore and even cause severe itching.
The best way is to prefer a salon using all-natural elastic wax, applied at body temperature. Hot synthetic wax is the biggest reason behind the irritated skin postwax. Also, if you're going to the beach immediately after a bikini wax, apply a suncream to the area prior to exposure to the sun.
