Post-Depilatory Treatment Oil

Post-Depilatory Treatment Oil Hair removal can cause a stress to your skin. If you don’t pay enough attention to post-depilatory treatment, your skin might get red and irritated. You can also get ingrown hairs. To prevent unpleasant side effects of hair removal, you need to use special products that will help to soothe, soften and moisturise the skin. You can choose lotion, cream, gel, soothing wipes, or post-depilatory treatment oil.

There are many hair removal methods, including shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, sugaring, epilators, etc. Each of them has its pros and cons but absolutely all of these methods damage the uppermost layer of the skin to some degree. In most cases, this just causes skin dryness or slight irritation – nothing a regular lotion or cream cannot cope with. However, sometimes micro-injuries in the skin might get infected which causes inflammation.

To prevent this, you should use a post-depilatory treatment. For example, post-hair removal oil is perfect for dry skin but it is suitable for all skin types. Such oil has a comprehensive effect: it softens the skin, keeps it hydrated, relieves irritation, and prevents inflammation thanks to antiseptic ingredients. But what exactly does it consist of?

Post-depilatory treatment oil is formulated with a blend of natural carrier and essential oils that have moisturising, nourishing, soothing, softening, and anti-bacterial properties. Vegetable and essential oils have been used as cosmetic products for a long time and their effectiveness has been proved by several generations of women, as well as by scientific research.

Besides, post-hair removal oils are often infused with herbal extracts from medicinal plants, vitamins, and other natural ingredients that complement and enhance the effect of vegetable and essential oils. A common ingredient in post-depilatory treatments is bisabolol, a substance with antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. It is obtained from chamomile essential oil.

Post-depilatory oil is usually based on popular cosmetic carrier oils such as olive oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, peach kernel oil, grape seed oil, etc. Sometimes it contains just one carrier oil, but most often a blend of oils is used to achieve maximum effect.

Carrier oils intensively hydrate the skin, make it smoother and help to retain moisture in epidermal cells. Besides, all vegetable oils contain a certain amount of tocopherol (vitamin E). Vitamin E is a strong natural antioxidant, it neutralises the harmful effects of free radicals and prevents premature skin ageing. One more benefit of carrier oils is that they help to remove wax or sugar residue from the skin surface.

Most post-depilatory treatment oils also contain a blend of essential oils. All essential oils have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Their main task is to prevent irritation and inflammation caused by hair removal. In a carefully selected blend of essential oils, all ingredients complement and enhance each other’s effect. For example, Flora Secret Post-Hair Removal Oil is infused with rosemary oil, cypress oil, cedarwood oil, eucalyptus oil, and ylang-ylang oil. All these oils are known for their soothing properties and pleasant smell.

To enhance the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect of essential oils, post-depilatory treatments are enriched with herbal extracts like chamomile extract or echinacea extract. Another common ingredient is aloe vera leaf juice that has strong moisturising properties and has been widely used in the cosmetic industry for decades. Finally, panthenol is added to improve hydration, reduce itching and inflammation, improve skin elasticity, and accelerate skin regeneration.

High-quality post-hair removal oils have a light texture and absorb well without leaving the skin feeling greasy or sticky. To achieve maximum effect, you should apply the oil right after hair removal and then reapply it several times instead of using your regular body cream or lotion. This will prevent dry, tight and irritated skin.
