Tips for Skin Care After Laser Treatment for Hair Removal

As chocolate based skin products have anti-inflammatory agents and skin softeners, apply them after laser skin removal to instantly soothe your skin.

Avoid Facial Makeup Temporarily

This will help keep your skin clear and skin. If you have to wear makeup for a special occasion, use mineral makeup and not even non-comedogenic makeup.

Body wraps make your skin smooth

If you had a full body laser removal, give your body a body wraps. These wraps infuse the skin with moisture, emollients and other ingredients that help repair sensitive skin and to give silky and smooth skin.

Though you will be wearing a body wrap, don’t miss on applying a quality moisturizer after your laser hair removal treatment. The moisturizer will boost your skin and make it responsive to at-home moisture infusion.
