Summer beauty fixes - ingrown hairs

Summer beauty fixes - ingrown hairs

1 | 2 | 3

With bikini season in full bloom, that means it's time to bare (just about) everything. The more you shave/wax, the more likely you are to get ingrown hairs. When the hair grows sideways it curls back into the skin, becoming ingrown.

There are ways to treat them - the main being to exfoliate. When you exfoliate you scrub away the thin top layer of skin cells, which traps & causes them to become ingrown. Also effective are the astringents containing salicylic acid. I swear by Tend Skin, the bliss pads are also very good.
