Rosacea Skin Care Do’s And Don’t’s By Beauty Salon Colac – Call Us On 03 5232 2448
Rosacea is such a frustrating disease. While there are common denominators, the symptoms can vary from person to person!
Initially, keeping a journal to chronicle food and drinks consumed help to identify triggers. We do know that spicy foods, caffeine and red wine tend to be common flare-up culprits.
Fortunately, skin care advances have now made this baffling disease less frustrating to manage. Clinical treatments can dramatically reduce the severity of rosacea. The results have been tremendous.
While the clinical results can make you forget you have rosacea, you must still be mindful of it!
– If at all possible, try not to get over-heated.
– Cover your face from the wind and the cold. Just make sure the fabric is not made of wool or any other scratchy material. It’s just too rough for your skin.
– Apply not only sunscreen but also an antioxidant serum for maximum protection from the sun’s rays!
– Keep hairspray from touching your face. It can aggravate rosacea.
– Keep your skincare routine simple. Too many products can irritate your skin. NO deodorant soaps on the face. Use only gentle professional skincare products.
– Avoid scrubbing, rubbing, or massaging your face.
Clinical treatments can give you beautiful skin with no telltale signs of rosacea.
The key is maintenance. Follow up with your dermatologist regularly and maintain monthly clinical treatments. Talk to us. We’re here to help!

Do’s & Don’ts of Getting A Brazilian By Beauty Salon Colac – Call Us On 03 5232 2448
Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.
Before Your Brazilian:
DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.
DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.
DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.
DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.
DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.
DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.
After your Brazilian:
DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.
DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.
If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).
DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.
