Summertime is when a person’s largest organ gets abused the most- and no, we’re not talking about your liver. Skin takes an absolute beating when the warm weather comes around. From tanning to constant shaving and waxing, by the end of the season, a person’s skin can start to look real rough. Most of us don’t think of the damage while it’s occurring because the only goal is to look good and get that perfect Insta-pic, but there can be some serious repercussions of looking good.
Certain skin conditions make it hard to be perfectly smooth, yet many ignore what their skin needs in order to get what they want. If you notice a change in your skin after waxing or shaving, do some research. There are ways to stay silky smooth without destroying your epidermis.
Skin Smoothing Solutions for the following conditions…
That redness in your face caused by blushing may last a little longer than it should. Rosacea can result in your skin turning bright red, itching, and burning uncontrollably with acne-like bumps. It’s not only embarrassing, it’s painful as well. As someone who personally suffers from this, I’ve learned that waxing is nothing more than my enemy now. My eyebrows now have endured the annoyance of tweezers in order to eliminate unwanted hair. I’ve tried many treatments such as sulfur washes and medications, but my skin remains super sensitive.
If you thought your hair grew back rapidly, you need to understand psoriasis. This skin condition is caused by your skin cells multiplying up to 10x times faster than they’re supposed to. Red plaques covered in white scaled can make it nearly impossible to shave over. The various types of psoriasis can be itchy, burn, or even crack and bleed. These plaques can spread and join to gather covering large portions of the skin, making it nearly impossible to wax or shave without irritating the skin more or causing more damage.
There are medications and cream to help the skin heal the skin, but the effects of this condition can be long lasting and worsen without the right care. Unfortunately, that means it’s once again a no go on shaving and waxing.
Shaving, especially for men, can be a gruelingly painful task. If you’ve ever noticed a razor burn-like rash on your face or neck after shaving, you may have dismissed it as exactly that; “just razor burn.” Although that could be true, it’s possible there is another reason for the change in your skin.
If you have curly hair or extremely sensitive skin, you are more prone to this type of post-shaving condition, Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. The condition will complicate hair growth after shaving or waxing. When your hair starts to grow back after it has been waxed or shaved it will not grow back correctly or straight in the follicle, thus leading to ingrown hairs and inflamed itchy red skin that may be confused as pimples.
Consider letting your hair grow out. If you avoid shaving or waxing for a while, your skin will start to heal and it may prevent future damage. In about 3 to 4 weeks, all lesions will begin to heal and your skin will return back to normal.
We all want a skin solution.
Smooth skin should not have to be something anyone should have to fight for. With so many different types of skin complications that exist today, treating your skin correctly and ridding your body of extra hair can be a trying task. Since the reoccurring efforts of shaving, waxing and other temporary hair removal seen to only aggravate these conditions, many have looked for a more permanent one.
At first, they look at laser hair removal. As effective as this may be, laser is not approved for facial use, making it impossible, for especially those who suffer from Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, to find the solution. The idea of permanent hair removal does have hope. The Smooth System removes hair from the follicle for good. In a few sessions, you’ll never have to worry about destroying your skin with wax and razors again. It’s a win-win for both convenience and your skin!
If you want your skin to be like butter and are dealing with difficult skin, this could be exactly what you’re looking for. In the meantime, remember to keep covered from the sun and treat your skin with care!
