Congratulations on completing your laser hair removal journey! With smooth, hair-free skin, you want to show off your hard work and newfound confidence. But before you enjoy the summer sun, it’s essential to understand how to properly care for your skin during laser hair removal recovery to keep your skin happy and healthy.
Sun Protection and Proper Skin Care After Laser Hair Removal
During laser hair removal treatment, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight was critical to protect your skin between sessions. Once you’ve completed your final appointment, you must continue avoiding sun exposure for at least one month and apply sunscreen daily. While your skin is recovering from laser hair removal, it is also a good idea to avoid irritating products that could hinder the healing process, such as tanning lotions, body scrubs, and fragrances.
Even after the month has passed, you should continue safeguarding your skin from sun damage to maintain that smooth, hair-free feel. Always use sunscreen, no matter where you are on your skin journey!
Promoting Skin Health and Recovery
In addition to avoiding excessive sun exposure and wearing sunscreen, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Your skin stays healthy from the inside out, so consuming plenty of water and foods rich in Vitamins E and C can support your skin’s health. Getting ample rest and engaging in exercise which won’t irritate your skin is also essential during the recovery period — and after, of course.
These actions can help contribute to a faster recovery, allowing you to properly prepare your skin for sun exposure after your one-month healing period.
