Waxing While On The Regimen

4 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

I'm on my second week on the Regimen and my skin is super sensitive right now. A lot of dryness and scaling. I want to get my eyebrows waxed today. Do you guys think it is safe? Has anyone tried waxing their eyebrows and/or upperlip while on the regimen? I'm scared that it will irritate my skin since it is super sensitive right now. Help Please!

Benzoyl peroxide doesnt exactly 'thin' your skin like retinoids such as retin-a do, so it should be okay. But the best thing to do is go and see the person who waxes them and ask their advice.

Ask your esthetician to use hard (stripless) wax. It is much gentler on the skin. Or you can ask her to apply a very thin layer of oil before applying soft (strip) wax. This can prevent the wax from adhering if too much is used, but a very small amount will allow the wax to pick up the hairs while providing a skin barrier to prevent irritation.
