You know when you get your eyebrows waxed and you come out looking like a clown and of course, it’s the middle of the day and you still have to been seen in public? That always happens to me, I need to plan my brow waxing appointments better, maybe towards the end of the day or after I’ve finished all my errands. I have a fair complexion and sensitive skin so after a brow wax the skin around my eyebrows is very red and irritated, and it stays that way for a long time. When you get your brows waxed they are actually pulling hair out of the follicle and that can cause redness and irritation for anyone but it can be worse for people with fair skin.
You never want to put makeup over it right away, putting makeup or other products can clog the pores and cause even more irritation. You can try some aloe vera or lavender oil, everyone is different so you have to do what works for you.
My secret is Visine, try putting a few drops of Visine on the redness and it should help. Eye drops contain a capillary constrictor that works by constricting the blood vessels in your eyes to reduce redness so it can have the same effect on your skin. Just bring a bottle with you when you go to your appointment. This is just something that I use, it doesn’t completely take away the redness but it helps, the redness feels hot and the Visine drops provide a cooling feeling so it doesn’t hurt so much.
