Ingrown Hairs and Waxing

Some people are more prone to ingrown hairs than others. After waxing, and shaving, you may sometimes notice an ingrown hair. Here is how you can prevent ingrown hairs.

How to Prevent Ingrown Hairs

Apply exfoliating scrub, in the shower 24 hours after completing your wax service. It is critical that you wait at least 24 hours before you begin exfoliating your recently waxed skin because your skin is highly sensitive within this time frame.

Rub your skin vigorously with a towel or exfoliating sponge EVERY time you shower or bathe. Adopt a daily exfoliating regime to remove dead skin cells as they grow.

Use a hair serum to fight and prevent future ingrown hairs from waxing or shaving. The serum also brightens dark spots and blemishes left behind from old ingrown hairs.

Apply a suitable amount of moisturizer to avoid dry and itchy skin. Consider using a natural product, as skin prefers natural vitamin-rich moisturizers.
