POST WAXING CARE
To ensure maximum comfort and benefit after the treatment, it is important to follow the steps below at home:
Avoid applying heat to the waxed area for 12 to 24 hours. This includes hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms. Do not swim in chlorinated pools, rivers, or dirty water for 24 hours.
Avoid exercise for 24 hours. This causes perspiration which may irritate freshly waxed skin and cause a breakout. This also includes intercourse.
Use an anti-acne lotion for face, back, and chest following the treatment and twice a day until breakouts are gone. Use only an anti-acne product recommended by your esthetician.
Avoid suntanning for 12 to 24 hours. This includes any strong ultraviolet (UV) light exposure or tanning bed treatments.
Avoid applying highly fragranced products to the waxed area. This includes perfume, scented body lotions, antiperspirants, cosmetics, or feminine hygiene sprays. Only use professional products, recommended to you by the esthetician who performed the waxing service
Avoid using harsh abrasive or exfoliates in the waxed area for 12-24 hours. Following that time frame, exfoliate daily with an exfoliating glove or washcloth to rid yourself of the dead skin buildup that will trap the hairs and cause ingrowns. Moisturize the waxed are after you exfoliate in the shower, preferably with non-fragranced moisturizer (coconut oil is a very popular moisturizer, it is a natural healing agent) As you keep your skin exfoliated and moisturized along with being consistent with your waxing, the hairs glide right out easily. Failing to take proper care of your skin will result in the pore and follicle really tugging onto each other which makes it a tougher pull and increases your sensitivity.
Avoid applying high SPF sunblocks to the waxed area for 12-24 hours after the waxing service. Sunscreen chemicals can be irritating to the newly waxed skin. This includes self-tanning products and tan accelerators.
Any pinking of the skin should disappear within 6 to 8 hours after the waxing treatment. Slight pinking is normal and indicates that the hair was removed from the root, rather than superficially broken off, as in shaving. This is the reason that professional waxing lasts so much longer.
For best results, repeat your professional waxing every 4 to 5 weeks depending on the area and your individual hair growth rate.

EYE LASH PERM CARE
An eyelash perm could last up to 6 weeks if you care for your lashes properly. You are advised to follow the following eyelash perm aftercare tips:
Refrain from getting your eyelashes wet for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
Avoid rubbing or touching the eye area as you could irritate the eyes.
Don't spend too long in direct sunlight straight after your treatment, as this could weaken the perm lotion.
