Hi, I'm a 17 year old guy. I bought a package of Mandy's face Wax strips ( leechem.co.za/product.aspx?ProdID=1083&cateId=59&Category=Mandys &subcateId=8&subcategory=Wax+Strips ).
I tried it today, but I held the strip a bit too long and when I removed, it left a huge amount in my face.
The instructions said not to wash with water or alcohol. It said to use moisturiser to dissolve it.
I used "Johnson's baby moisturising lotion" on the area but it did not remove the wax.
I tried to clean it with a towel, still nothing.
Then I desperately repeated the wax strip over that area to see if it would remove it, but nothing.
Then after some more moisturising, I also applied water and the wax was almost unnoticeable.
That part of the skin kept irritating the whole day each time I touched it.
Now, after 15 hours, that skin is getting redder and it looks like this:
Look at the red part next to the lips. The other red spots are from my old acnes.
Should I do anything about it or leave it, it will pass ?
