I just got my arms waxed today for the first time. There's small bumps on my arms that itch a little. I took some benadryl.... but, any other ideas or things that you've found helpful for any red bumps after waxing?

Thanks so much!!

I highly recommend tend skin. You can get it at sephora for ~$20. I haven't tried it after waxing yet but works amazing after shaving my bikini area... which usually gets a little bumpy even when I wax. I didn't get any after shaving when I used tend skin

Another Tend Skin vote here! Ingrown hairs just don't have a chance, LOL. I also use it the day before I go in for another waxing, just to get all those pesky lil hairs upright and ready.

So funny because I was gonna add that to my post and totally forgot. I have KP and Tend Skin is doing wonders for my skin. I buy it off ebay but I ALWAYS make sure its not expired. There are some for sale that arent expired, they tend to be a little more expensive but still cheaper than retail.

Hey- I don't want to restate things others have said, but I figured I'd just put this out there. I was wondering if anybody has tried tea tree oil for ingrowns, I put some on a cotton square and for the first 2 days I saw real improvement, but then nothing :tdown: so then I tried (yes I know I'm crazy but I'm on a mission) using Mario Badescu drying lotion on the really bad ones and so far so good, but I am only on day 2-3. Any other thoughts or suggestions on this? TIA!!!
