Can you shower after wax?

It's perfectly fine to take a cool or warm showerafter your wax, however, I recommend waiting at least5-8 hours for the skin to recover. Avoid hot showers orsteam rooms after your wax. Hair follicles remainopen for hours after waxing, so it's best to avoid contactwith any excess moisture for at least 24 hours.
