    Hello,

    I have just had a wax done on my chest and abs. Immediately after it was sore (which I expected). However 3 days after, my chest/abs is still sore and have accumulated many white pimples all over my chest whist look disgusting and hurt.
    Is there anything I can do to make this go down or anything I could've used before the wax to stop this happening?

    Many thanks

    You're supposed to exfoliate the skin before waxing.

    why not get laser hair removal? It lasts longer and it way less painful.

    Yeah, It may be a bit more expensive but it lasts longer + Think of the amount
    of time you can save over a period of say 6 months say 30 mins/week = 2hours/month = 12 hours saved/6 months .... now lets say you work a job for those 12 hours you can easily cover the cost spent in those hours and perhaps have a bit of time to yourself = win win situation.

    Sorry to be gross, but could it ingrown hairs?

    I'm not a male but I have been waxed in various places many times.

    Exfoliate and moisturise with something gentle and calming the day before (e.g coconut oil) once you've had it done, just use the coconut oil for a few days after. Aloe vera also feels nice after a particularly painful wax, I also like baby oil. It feels nice af

    What Goaded said, keep the area moisturised.

    Yeah I've been using aloe Vera and baby oil after the wax but still got all these minging spots 4 day's later. Feel like I've caught the plague 😁 But thanks, I'll make sure I moisturise and exfoliate regularly before my next wax👍🏽
