Post-Threading Breakout – SOS Recovery

Have you ever got your forehead threaded only to find out it caused you a bad reaction? Skin can easily get aggravated with threading as techniques differ across salons and the harsh motion can lead to skin that looks like it’s flared up with an allergy. This recently happened to me and it resulted in tiny acne like formation that looked not so glamorous. It was one of those skin problems that looked like it was going to take forever to disappear. Hence came out some salicylic acid warriors. Now because salicylic acid is known to cleanse pores inside out, I would suggest resorting to it instantly in such scenarios. Aloe vera on it’s own is not going to do you any good. I used Proactiv’s* Skin Smoothing Exfoliator to start with, followed by La Roche Posay Serozinc spray, Proactive’s Pore Targeting Treatment and finally a Teoxane Perfect Skin Refiner consisting of glycolic acid. Put this on repeat at least thrice a day, cobbled together with frequent skin cleanses with hot cloths and voila – the dreaded post-threading disaster should calm down in under a day. If you’ve never had the need to thread your forehead/brows, I envy you quite avidly right now #LittleMissPerfect.

*Proactive kits are sold on their official website usually with monthly direct debit agreements (as they suggest it’s a treatment plan and one kit won’t be sufficient) I went through a panic fit and a series of phone calls to get the Direct Debit cancelled. Make sure what you are doing is a one off purchase or alternatively buy from boots to be safe!
