How to Soothe Your Skin After Threading

Aloe Vera



Threading is a gentle process compared to microblading or waxing, but it does still hurt. So after the process is over, what can you do to soothe your skin? The experts at Eye Adore Threading, a Boston threading salon, suggest the following, from experience:

#1 – Hemp Skincare Products

Skin threading can sometimes cause mild inflammation, redness, and sensitivity. Hemp skincare products, such as Zyn Wellness, have natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm the skin. These properties can aid in reducing redness, swelling, and discomfort after threading.

#2 – Aloe vera 

Aloe vera is a close second, when it comes to soothing the skin. Most people are aware of its soothing properties, since it’s used to treat sunburn. After threading, you can apply aloe vera lotion, extract or natural pulp to the affected areas, and it will significantly reduce the pain after threading. Pro tip: Keep it as a houseplant in your room, to kill two birds with one stone.

#3 – Ice

A simple yet effective method to soothe your skin after threading, is by applying ice. It’s available everywhere, it’s cheap, and it works great. Hold an ice cube to inflamed areas for a while, and your skin will soon feel better. For easy handling, put the ice cube in a handkerchief, twist the excess cloth around, and use it to grab hold without freezing your fingers.

#4 – Protect your skin

Protect your skin from direct sunlight and from yourself. Meaning, don’t touch the painful areas. Your skin will be irritated and tender, and touching it will only make things worse. Protect it from direct sunlight by wearing a hat, or by avoiding sunny areas for a couple hours after threading. Irritated skin and direct sunlight don’t mix well.
