Using wax or tweezers, after eyebrow waxing, small pimples or redness may appear. Don't panic, this phenomenon is natural. This is the skin's reaction to hair removal. But how can we reduce these effects more quickly? Discover practical tips to get rid of your little post-hair removal inconveniences more quickly. 

Why can spots and redness appear after eyebrow waxing? 

Hair removal, even if done correctly, remains an attack on our skin. This is why redness or spots may appear. They are due to a natural reaction of the skin which is the result of inflammation of the most superficial tissues. Indeed, when we wax, we not only pull out the hairs, we also remove part of the outermost layer of our skin. This is why our skin turns red. 

But, fortunately, in the vast majority of cases, these symptoms disappear within a few days, or even a few hours depending on the sensitivity of your skin. 

Tips to get rid of pimples after hair removal on your face 

Here are some tips to reduce the side effects of hair removal and take care of your skin. 

Hydrate and nourish your skin well 

To reduce post-hair removal effects, you must first have supple and well-hydrated skin. Daily, clean your face with a mild soap and apply a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Exfoliate every week to remove dead skin and other impurities that could accelerate the phenomenon of inflammation after hair removal. 

Bad habits to avoid 

Certain bad habits should absolutely be avoided, such as: 

  • Using wax that is too hot: If your wax is too hot, you risk burning yourself and leaving red marks that will take time to fade.  
  • Pull the wax strip in the opposite direction of growth: to avoid the appearance of ingrown hairs or white spots, always pull your wax strip in the direction of your hair growth.  
  • Removing hair with non-disinfected tools: if you remove hair yourself, take the time to disinfect your equipment each time you remove hair, particularly your tweezers which are in direct contact with your skin. This will reduce the risk of infection and skin reactions.  
  • Using unsuitable tweezers: several models of tweezers exist. It is important to choose the model that corresponds to eyebrow waxing. In general, it is best to choose angled tweezers , which provide a better grip on the hair.  
  • Repeat hair removal a second time: if you are not satisfied with the result, avoid focusing on a particular area. You risk damaging your skin. If you are in difficulty, seek advice from a professional beautician instead.  

Actions to take after hair removal 

In order to reduce the unpleasant effects that hair removal with wax or tweezers can cause, it is advisable to pass the depilated area with cold water, then once dried, to apply a greasy cream (body butter , protective emulsion, etc.) which will deeply repair your epidermis. 

Always remember to disinfect your beauty tools. You can also opt for cold wax which may cause your skin to react less. In any case, avoid wearing makeup the day after your hair removal, so that nothing overreacts your already weakened skin. 

What are the advantages of going to an institute to have your eyebrows waxed? 

Having your eyebrows waxed by a professional means having the guarantee that the work will be carried out well and in good conditions.


Have the guarantee of an impeccable result 

The beauticians who will take care of you have been trained and have all the skills and experience necessary to offer you hair removal with impeccable results. Indeed, plucking your eyebrows yourself is not such an easy task to accomplish. Thus, opting for eyebrow waxing in an institute allows you to avoid or, at a minimum, limit the appearance of spots and redness. 

Enjoy a treatment carried out in good conditions 

For hair removal to go well, hygiene is an important criterion. In an institute, the utensils used are carefully cleaned and disinfected after each use. Which is not necessarily the case when you wax at home. Obviously, redness and pimples are a natural reaction of the skin, which can occur even when hair removal is carried out by professionals. But, skin reactions are rarer with eyebrow waxing for men or women in an institute, carried out according to the rules of the art and with the right gestures.
