Q&A: Ease Redness from Waxing

wax application

Q. My skin gets super red when I get my lip waxed.  Is there anything I can do to make it less red?  I don't want to stop waxing it! The hair is worse than the redness!

A. The skin can have an acid reaction when it is waxed producing excessive redness and even hives when waxed. There are a few things you can try to calm the reaction.

Avoid caffeine the day of your waxing. 

Try taking an antacid like Tums to neutralize acid in your body a half hour before you get waxed. 

You can try a salt water compress, which is alkaline, to help neutralize acid after you have been waxed. 

Always stop using Renova, Retin A and alpha hydroxy products 3 days before you have a waxing.

Apply a soothing, anti redness cream such as Yon Ka Creme 11 to calm redness. It's one of my favorite beauty products. YonKa has recently discontinued it. Try the Yonka Sensitive line as a replacement. Sensitive Creme or Sensitive Masque.

Shop for YonKa Creme 11
