Many people develop folliculitis — a bumpy, pimple-like rash — after hair removal. It's usually caused by inflammation. Inflammation typically goes away on its own without treatment.
Since the rash is a result of inflammation, you can counter it by treating it with a cold compress. Apply an ice pack directly or dip a washcloth in ice-cold water and press it against your waxed skin.
Aloe vera gel has cooling as well as healing properties, and that’s why it’s considered a godsent ingredient for sensitive skin. If you experience post-wax bumps after every hair removal, keep aloe vera gel in your beauty shelf. Right after the wax, rub aloe vera gel on your skin and let it get absorbed. It will also relieve you from itching and irritation.
Do away with the irritants by cleansing and exfoliating your skin.
It helps soothe lingering sensations and inflammation. Use warm water and a mild scrub to gently exfoliate your skin and follow up with a lightweight, nourishing moisturiser. Keep your skin moisturised and avoid tight-fitting clothes to keep further irritation at bay.
These ingredients are fine, they should be from a good company and with good customer reviews :)
