Can Men Wax Their Chest After Being in the Sun?

More great questions from readers with questions just like you!

Q: Dear Valentina—I wax my chest regularly all year round, but in the summer I go to the beach several times a week.  Can I still keep a waxed chest if I am always in the sun?—Robert K., New Jersey

A: Dear Robert-  This is a good question that you bring up and I am glad that you did.  It is possible to keep a waxed chest all year long, but there are a few precautions that you need to take.  By the sound of your email, it seems as though you are aware that waxing your skin immediately before or after sun exposure can be dangerous.   Your skin is more susceptible to being wounded after it has been burned by the sun.

Waxing essentially creates a wound on the skin, although the wound is not technically visible to the naked eye.  Waxing removes the upper most layer of skin (epidermis).  Sun burned skin has a tendency to rip right off—ouch!

Waxing right before sun exposure is equally as dangerous.  Your skin is less protected now that the upper most layer has been removed during the waxing process, making it easier to suffer a devastating sun burn.

So, in order to keep a well-groomed chest over summer, you’ll have to forgo some of your time in the sun.  Try to avoid the sun at least 24 hours before and after sun exposure (I prefer to recommend 48 hours—but 24 is pretty standard).  Also use a good SPF if you know you are going to get waxed in the next 1-2 days.

With that my dear, you can continue to wax during the summer.

    If you want to buy a house, you will have to get the loan. Moreover, my mother commonly uses a bank loan, which seems to be the most fast.
