The types of facial waxes you can get target areas such as your chin, upper lip, or eyebrow area. When you receive a wax of any kind, the area you’re getting treated is generally sensitive because not only does wax remove the hairs on your body, but it also exfoliates your skin. The type of wax your esthetician uses, such as hard wax, fruit wax, or sugar wax, can also play a role in the sensitivity level of your skin post-treatment.

Nevertheless, ensuring you don’t use makeup or certain skincare products after a facial wax for at least 24 hours is vital to avoiding breakouts. Gina Petak, the learning program manager at European Wax Center, told Women’s Health, “Keep away from products containing pore-clogging ingredients such as mineral oil or heavy creams and lotions.” Unbeknownst to you, some of your favorite products may be comedogenic, which can trigger breakouts. Additionally, this is the time to begin understanding parabens in skincare. As an extra precaution, it doesn’t hurt to ask your esthetician about how they may also affect your freshly waxed skin.
