HOW TO

Sugaring Aftercare: Underarms

You did it! Now let’s recover. You just removed hair from the root which leaves your skin susceptible to irritation, so calm it down with the following:

For irritated skin, apply a cold compress on on your armpits.

I recommend ice wrapped in a washcloth to help remove any lingering residue.

Apply post sugaring Calming Serum.

This aloe-based serum helps to soothe and calm the skin.

Keep it bare.

Avoid moisturizing creams, perfumed bar soaps, and deodorants on the treated areas for 24 hours as they may leave a film on the skin that may cause ingrown hairs.

Do not use exfoliating products for at least 24 hours.

Scrubs, AHAs, and loofahs may irritate the skin.

BUT Exfoliate between sugaring sessions!!!

Exfoliation is the key to sugaring success. This is the best thing you can do to keep you skin soft, happy, and ingrown hair-free. SERIOUSLY! Sporadic exfoliation won’t cut it. Exfoliating every two days will be your best defense against ingrown hair and prepare your skin or the next session.

Be extra careful around the sun for at least two days after sugaring.

Some slight irritation

It’s normal for your skin to be irritated for up to 24 hours after waxing. If you’re fair skinned, you’ll probably be a little red.

Pinpoint bleeding

Pinpoint bleeding is totally normal especially when there is a lot of protein in the hair follicle. Use a damp cloth to wipe away the blood. It should be gone by the end of your session.

A few leftover hairs

Especially on your first try. The more you sugar, the better your technique will become. With experience, you’ll find yourself making cleaner pulls. Keep at it!

Occasionally, typically following the first & second treatments, small white bumps

This is a normal histamine reaction when hairs are removed by the root. This is simply your body’s natural, protective response to the newly opened follicles. Do NOT squeeze these bumps. These should last only 1-2 hours.

Results the first time you sugar should last up to four weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Even after the first sugaring, you should see a noticeable difference in the new growth: ie thinner, finer, sparser.
