Side Effects Of Applying Lemon On The Armpit After Pulling Armpit Hair?
Hello … Want to ask … Is it dangerous if we apply lemon directly to the skin of the armpits after waxing? Is irritation possible? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, lemons have very acidic properties, so they have the potential to irritate the skin when applied directly for a long time to the skin. Armpit skin is one area of skin that is very sensitive and if you just wax your armpit, that skin area will become even more sensitive (because waxing itself is already irritating your armpit skin). Applying lemon directly to areas of the skin that are already experiencing irritation can cause further irritation that may cause injuries such as burns to the skin.
You should not have to put lemon on the armpit you just waxed (even if it's not freshly waxed, you also have to be careful when applying lemon to the area of your skin). You should avoid using products that can irritate the skin too (such as products containing alcohol, perfume, deodorant, etc.) and avoid excessive friction on the skin. Use clothes that are not too tight in your armpit area and use clothing from soft materials so that friction can also be minimized. To help reduce inflammation in this area, you can compress your armpit area with a cold compress.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
