Home Facial Waxing Gone Bad
amymcl65 posted:
I recently waxed my face. I have a hot wax pot, and have been doing so for 3 years. The wax was too hot. As a result, I took off the first layer of skin. I am experience a burning and chapping sensation that is driving me crazy ! Does anyone have a home remedy that cold help? I have been using coconut oil because I seem to get relief from that for other skin ailments, but It's not helping. I put on Gold Bond Ultra Haling Ointment on it, and it burns like crazy, Do you think Aloe Vera would help?

Also, how long does it take for the skin to heal?
Thank you !
