Aftercare

No touching

We know it's hard, but refrain from touching the freshly sugared area for the first 24 hours. We carry germs on our hands and the area sugared is more susceptible to bacteria that might cause an infection of the hair follicle known as folicullitis. 

Keep it simple

Avoid using products with chemicals and additives for 24-48 hours after treatment. These products may cause an adverse reaction after hair removal, depending on the sensitivity of your skin. Avoid Exfoliants, scrubs, and loofahs for the first two days after your sugaring. This includes products that contain acids such as glycolic, salicylic and alpha-hydroxy. You can start your exfoliation routine about three days after your sugaring. 

 

Stay out of the water

Avoicd taking any extremly hot showers or baths for at least 2 hours after your treatment. Opt for a warm shower– not a hot one the evening of your sugaring and gently wash the area with antibacterial soap (we recommend Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap). Resist jumping into the hot tub, ocean, steam room or sauna for at least 48 hours, these environments can breed bacteria and its best to avoid.  

 

Sexy time

While you might want to share your new look with a loved one right away,  medical experts advise waiting at least 48 hours – especially if you are prone to ingrown hairs or are fairly new to sugaring. Friction and perspiration might aggravate the skin. During the first 24 hours, your body is most susceptible to outside bacteria that might cause an infection of the hair follicle known as folicullitis.

 

Working out

Avoid strenuous workouts for 48 hours after sugaring appointments. Don’t go running off to the gym immediately after your appointment. Take the rest of the day off as the perspiration tends to irritate the skin.

 

Sun exposure

Avoid tanning beds and sunbathing for 48 hours. When you do return to the beautiful sun, don't forget sunscreen!
