If you’re jetting off for some winter sun, or simply spend a lot of time in a bikini or swimming cossie during leisure time, there’s a good chance that your bikini line is at the forefront of your mind. Hair removal is subjective and everyone likes different methods, but maintaining a tidy bikini line is about so much more than hair removal. Today, we’re looking at how to look after your bikini line once the hair has been removed.
Immediately after waxing/shaving/whatever your hair, using Decleor Post-Wax Double Action Gel will soothe, soften and moisturise the skin, as well as slowing down hair regrowth. It will also reduce the appearance of skin imperfections such as ingrown hair and redness and ensure that you aren’t walking around with a sore, red bikini area!
This cream is designed specifically for the sensitive areas such as your bikini line and armpits and will soothe the skin after hair removal. Although it says “post-wax”, it’s equally effective after shaving or epilation. Applied daily the nourishing cream works to slow down hair regrowth, optimising your removal sessions whilst maintaining silky and soothed skin for longer.
Between hair removal sessions, keeping the area well exfoliated is essential as this will prevent ingrown hairs and unsightly pimples by ensure that dead cells are sloughed away instead of blocking your pores. It contains silicon-rich sea-plant particles, devils apron seaweed and peppermint essential oil that leave the skin satin soft and more receptive to moisturising.
Immediately after a hair removal session, your pores are open and susceptible to letting in bacteria, which can lead to infection. Using one Elemis Tea Tree S.O.S. Spray on the area will significantly reduce your chances of infection and will also help to cool and soothe the area. Tea tree oil is nature’s antiseptic and is ideal for use after waxing.
Keeping your skin well moisturised is a key element of having a perfect bikini line as it means that the hair growth will be more even and your skin will likely suffer less damage during the hair removal process. This body oil from Elemis improves elasticity, supports and nourishes all skin conditions and provides high levels of hydration to a dry skin.
