What can I do to prevent or reduce ingrown hairs?

In-growing hairs are hairs that continue to grow just beneath the surface of the skin and can often become inflamed or infected. They may be caused by the lack of removing dead skin cells and wearing tight fitting clothing. They may be helped by the use of an exfoliating mitt in the shower or bath 2/3 times per week. Always moisturise the skin after exfoliating, bathing or a shower. If the skin is hydrated and supple, new growth can break through more easily. This helps to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. We also retail post waxing aftercare products for exfoliating, body moisturisers designed specifically for post waxed skin and a roll-on treatment gel formulated specifically for ingrown hairs, razor rash / bumps resulting from shaving and waxing.

  1. Bullet    Exfoliate the area treated using shower gel on a regular basis. Please allow the skin a few days to normalise before exfoliating

  2. Bullet    Moisturise the skin regularly as this softens the skin and replaces moisture after exfoliation

  3. Bullet    Do not pick ingrown hairs as this may cause skin irritation or an infection

  4. Bullet    Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes that may rub or irritate the skin

  5. Bullet    Alternate your underwear type, so as not to irritate the bikini area
