Soothing Ingredients to Combat Post-Hair Removal Redness

One of the biggest telltale signs that someone just received a hair-removal service is red and inflamed skin. While this irritation often clears up within minutes or hours, there are several ingredients that can be extra soothing on this sensitive skin post-hair removal. After-care products that contain soothing ingredients can help calm skin, reduce redness, and prevent ingrown hairs.

“It’s also important to use an antibacterial antiseptic after hair removal, because when you remove the entire hair, the empty hair follicle can become irritated or infected,” says Normajean Fusco, president and owner of Equibal, makers of Finipil, a patented, FDA-registered antiseptic that destroys 99.999 percent of bacteria and protects skin by keeping the empty hair follicle clean, killing germs, and helping to prevent ingrown hairs. Here’s a look at some of the most soothing ingredients for use after hair-removal services:

  • Aloe
  • Arnica
  • Azulene
  • Chamomile
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Lavender
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Witch Hazel
