Redness and really bumpy after waxing...

After getting my eyebrows and lip waxed my skin gets very red, irritated and bumpy. Also it itches so bad. It lasts for hours! Why does my skin do that?

  • Mine does the same thing; think about it. you have just had hot wax on your skin that was ripped off; usually my eyebrows get better after about 2 hours; if not, put some cream on the area; unscented!!!

  • Its how your pours open and close. After waxing take a warm shower to clear out and reminence of wax/dirt and when you get out drip dry or pat dry. Do not rub:)
