First I want to say this looks like a great site, very useful to a lot of unfortunate women that have to go through all this hair removal.
I’m 31 and I have been bleaching my upper lip for 15 years. Finally last Tuesday I took the plunge and got my upper lip waxed at my hair salon. It was very painful. She put on the hot wax and then removed the wax with tweezer!! I thought it would of been some sort of strip she could just rip off. The wax kept breaking, so it was many painful tears.
Once I got home I noticed that she didn’t get all of the hair. The over the next few days I got what appeared to be very painful red sore acne with white puss in them (gross I know, I’m sorry). Finally today, over a week later, it is almost all cleared up. BUT now all the hair that she left behind is black and I either need to wax again OR bleach it. What should I do? If I wax it now, I will have more hair growth soon from the last waxing, correct?
I really could use some advice, and advice on what to use the next time I was so I don’t get the acne rash. And should I go back to my hair salon? Try someone new? Or do it at home?
My friend says she puts acne meds on right after she waxes so she doesn’t get that acne rash, but I"m concerned that would be more irritating??
I appreciate any feed back!
