If you have such fragile skin, Aloe Vera is the perfect option for you.
It protects your skin from rashes, scratching, patches, allergies, or any other foreign material that could be a potential irritant to your skin.

Tips to remember when you are waxing at home
- Always check the temperature of your wax before applying it to the skin.
Hot wax can lead to skin burns, and cold wax will not spread, defeating the goal.
- Do not wax when your skin has any scratches, bruises, burns, or infections.
Wait until your skin has healed and is healthy again.
- Often add wax in the direction of hair growth and remove it in the direction opposite to hair growth.
- Try to get all your hair in one go. Waxing over the same area, again and again, can cause skin irritation.
- Use the ice to numb the region before waxing.
It will reduce the amount of pain you can experience during your waxing.
