  • Try using a moisturizer after waxing this will help to restore some of the skin's moisture. And I agree with the first answer try using a different type of wax. I'm sure that they sell different types of wax for different skin types.

  • Sensitivity to the wax. Make sure they apply talc on before waxing to help, then they should use a cooling gel with mint to reduce redness.
