But before going into the details of tips to minimize the impact of threading, we need to understand what facial threading is. So, let us explore it!
What is face threading?
No other technique to remove extra hair is simpler than threading. For this task, only a piece of thread is required as a tool. It was originated in India centuries ago and now popular globally. Even the women of the most developed countries love this technique. In some regions, threading is used only for eyebrows. However, women generally use threading to remove extra hair from the entire face. It means you can also remove extra hair from the side cheeks and upper lips.
Benefits of face threading
We accept that many latest techniques are available in the market to remove extra hair. However, if you want to make your face hair-free delicately, nothing can be better than face threading. Now, we will discuss some of the benefits of face threading:
- It is the gentlest process that creates only minimal pain.
- To acquire more precise results and make your eyebrows on-point and neat, no treatment is better than threading.
- A bright, clean and smooth face comes out after this process.
- Threading gives a peach-fuzz-free face.
- The whole process takes only 15 minutes to complete.
- The best part of threading is that it slows down hair growth that helps results last longer.
- If you are thinking about derma-planning or laser treatment, you can choose face threading, which is more affordable and simpler.
- Threading suits every skin type. Therefore, you do not need to worry about your skin type before asking for threading.
Why should we recommend threading and not recommend tweezing?
Tweezing can be more complicated and painful. The reason is that tweezing can remove one hair in a single attempt. On the other hand, with threading, you can remove multiple hairs simultaneously. Therefore, we can consider threading a faster way of removing extra hair while comparing it with tweezing. Conversely, when comparing threading with waxing, we can easily claim that with threading, the control can be better. With waxing, you cannot control the process convincingly. More importantly, threading allows you to give your eyebrows the shape you require.
Skincare tips after threading
We have already mentioned that threading is the simplest and most effective way of removing hair from your face. More importantly, no skin type can face the impact of threading. So, if you have planned to go for threading, you do not need to panic because only a few simple tips can keep you away from any skin issue like irritation.
Here are these few steps:
No Immediate Bleaching
Do not plan to bleach your face after the threading. If you do so, you may face irreparable skin damage, itching, irritation, redness, and other issues. The experts recommend a gap of at least two days between threading and bleaching.
No Immediate Heat Treatment
Do not go for facial heat treatment after threading. The reason is that facial heat treatment after threading can make the skin cracked and dry. So, if you have planned a spa or heat-vapor facial treatment after threading, postpone it. We also recommend not to go for a bath with steamy or hot water after threading. For that, you must develop a gap of at least two hours.
Do not touch your face or threaded areas
Threading opens pores and makes the skin sensitive for some time. Therefore, touching the area with your hands means you have transferred bacteria to these skin pores. If it happens, you may face the issue of redness and rashes.
We do not recommend exfoliators after threading
Ensure that you will not use any exfoliating solution or cream for at least 24 hours after threading. The reason is that these exfoliators come with harmful chemical compounds that can be damaging your skin. We recommend here to use only herbal products that have a mild impact.
Apply Soothing Ingredients
There may be some heat or irritation after threading. Although it is not very common, women with sensitive skin can suffer. To minimize this impact, you can apply ice cubes to avoid reddishness and itching. Using rose water and aloe vera can also be beneficial in this situation.
Use Sun Protection
Try to keep under shades after threading. The reason is that the sun can burn your skin because pores are open, and your skin is sensitive currently. In this situation, you can damage your skin. If you still need to go outside, use sun protection creams or lotions.
Stay Away from Cosmetics
Last but not least is that avoiding cosmetics after threading is essential. We recommend you keep your face away from all types of cosmetics for at least 12 hours. If you do not do so, the effects can be more adverse than your expectations. On the other hand, we also recommend using antibacterial face washes or baby oils to moisturize the face properly. Using natural skin-friendly ingredients can also be beneficial in this situation.
