Laser hair removal can create many doubts and fears if we are not properly informed. Fears such as the skin getting burned, with blemishes, not getting the desired results remain in the mind if we don't really know how this method that "promises" that the hair disappears works .
First of all, you should always look for qualified professionals and make a prior appointment to test the sensitivity of the skin, because each case is different, just like the skin. A qualified professional will analyze and see if your skin will react well or not to the laser, and choose the best and most effective method for the type of hair you have.
The Be and Care team has put together some advice to follow before and after waxing, without fear! 😊
Avoid sun exposure ☀️
Before the laser you should avoid sun exposure for at least 5 days. After the session, you should also avoid direct sun exposure, and use sunscreen with the highest factor to protect your skin if you are exposed. Don't forget that after the session, even if you don't feel it, the skin is more sensitive, and if you sunbathe without care, then yes, you can create skin burns.

Exfoliate the skin
To avoid the appearance of ingrown hairs between sessions, you should exfoliate one or two weeks after waxing to ensure that the skin is recovered and always using gentle exfoliants that are not aggressive to the skin.

Hydrate the skin 🤗
In order to keep the skin hydrated, one of the main focuses should be water intake. When applying body cream, you should avoid products with alcohol because they can irritate the skin in the areas most sensitive to epilation.
You can use: Babé 100% Aloé
Cleansing the skin 🚿
Before and after epilation you can take a shower to calm and clean the skin of any residue it may have. Avoid bathing in hot water, giving preference between lukewarm and cold. You should also use a shower gel that soothes the skin and moisturizes at the same time.
You can use: Babé bath oil
As you can see, the essential skin care to be taken after and before laser hair removal is easy to practice, so there is no reason to be afraid! 😍
