How Can I Get Rid Of My Ingrown Hairs?
Ingrown hairs are nobody’s friend. They’re the horrible little red “pimples” which are caused by hairs growing in the wrong direction and becoming embedded in your skin. People with curly hair find that they are far more susceptible to them than others but even those of us with poker-straight locks can fall prey to them if we don’t practice good hair removal techniques!
There are ways and means, tricks and tips which you can employ to ensure the nasty little blighters don’t mar your skin!
• Don’t shave as soon as you step into the shower: You need to allow your pores to open and “relax”. If you start scraping away at chilly skin then you’re at more risk of nicks as well as ingrown hairs.
Exfoliation encourages healthy skin and helps your hair to work out what direction it’s meant to be growing in! Get a body scrubber and gently exfoliate your body; your face needs gentler treatment so use a rough flannel or a specially formulated exfoliation wash.
Go For Laser Hair Removal:
Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicles and stops further growth so there is no hair present to grow the wrong way! Both men and women can benefit from the latest techniques and equipment. Shaving is so yesterday!
Use A Moisturizing Shaving Gel:
Don’t ever shave without soap or gel and always use a good formula which has been designed for the task in hand.
If you do get ingrown hairs and want to know how to handle them, the trick is to remember that they’re very similar to pimples. They’re prone to infection too so always ensure your hands are clean!
Hold a warm compress on the affected area and then gently squeeze to encourage the hair to work it’s way back out. A dab of antiseptic cream will discourage germs from making things worse!
As with many modern beauty treatments, laser hair removal is widely used today by both sexes and is fine for even the most sensitive areas…so your face, bikini line or armpits are all candidates for this fantastic solution to the problems of ingrown and unwanted hairs!
