* Exfoliate area 1-2 times a week with a gentle exfoliating brush, glove, or with gentle exfoliating beads. Do not over-exfoliate! This could cause more irritation.
Exfoliating helps remove buildup on the skins surface from dead skin, oils, make-up, impurities in the air, etc causing blockages in the hair follicles. It also helps new hairs move out of the the follicle as they grow, instead of getting stuck underneath the skins surface causing ingrown hairs and therefore infections.
* Keep area clean with a gentle cleanser and ideally a toner. Depending on your skin type, salicylic acid, colloidal silver or tree oil may be some ingredients to look for in your cleansers and toners to help fight any bacteria buildup and/or inflammation. Always be cautious when trying products with new ingredients as to avoid allergic reactions or sensitivities.
*Always moisturize area after you cleanse and/or exfoliate with a recommended moisturizer from your aesthetician or dermatologist.
It is so important that you take care of your skin, after your appointment! Aftercare will make a night and day difference for your beautiful results and for your health in general.
