Threading might be an important ritual in our beauty routine but you can’t deny the fact that it can be a wee bit painful, especially for those with sensitive skin. After all, it involves pulling out hair right from its follicles and that sure can cause some amount of redness or even acne for some of us girls. Precisely why it’s imperative to take care of your skin post a threading session. Want to know how that’s done? Read our tips.

Avoid taking a warm shower immediately

Taking a shower with warm water can be rather harmful to the skin post a threading session. So it’s best to avoid it right after you return from the salon. Your pores are opened up after threading and thus, are susceptible to any sort of irritation by extreme temperatures or infection by bacteria.

Apply aloe vera gel

Aloe vera gel is known for being anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. The anti-inflammatory agents in it will cure your skin and reduce the swelling around your threaded skin. To get the best out of this treatment, you may keep the aloe vera gel in the fridge for a while before using so it helps cool your skin down.

Use the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser SPF 24PA++

Threading makes your skin sore and the area can hurt for a while after. So soothe your skin by applying some Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser SPF 24PA++ over the threaded areas. This is enriched with Nutritive Moisture technology, which means this moisturiser seeks out each epidermal cell and implants the moisture in it. Once your skin is moisturized, the pores close and this process makes the skin less vulnerable to infections.

Stay away from heat treatments

It is advisable to avoid any kind of heat treatment over the skin as that will make the skin dry. Your skin is already inflamed with the threading and a treatment like a heat vapour facial will only aggravate the problem.
