So I had some waxing done on the sides of my face, to get rid of those annoying and gross fine white hairs. But after the waxing I had two problems: a.) the wax left behind a residue and no matter how much scrubbing I did, it wouldn't come off, which meant I couldn't blend makeup over it; and b.) it gave me acne. Any suggestions for avoiding or correcting these problems if I wax again? It seems like I either have to have sideburns or acne, and I can't win! LOLAnswer Question

I am a licensed hairstylist and I have never heard of a residue being left behind. The warmth of the wax opened your pores making it easier to get acne. Make sure to properly wash your face before and after a wax.
