Ingrown hairs (aka razor bumps) can be painful and not to mention, hideous. But here's just four steps to stop them from reoccurring.
Step 1: Treat with active ingredients. Ignore products with claims that they treat ingrown hairs and look for a more specific ingredient instead: Salicylic acid. It is a dermatological- grade ingredient that visibly improve razor bumps and also exfoliates, moisturizes, clears pores as well as help prevent infection. Do not use any product that has alcohol, it will only worsen ingrown hairs by drying the skin and closing the pores.
2. Improve your skin's surface Exfoliate! You can use a gentle face scrub with glycolic and salicylic acid or choose a soft-bristle face brush instead. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells which prevents ingrown hairs
3. Adjust your shaving technique A close shave is what we all aim for, but there's such a thing as too close a shave. To avoid shaving too close, don't pull the skin when you shave, don't put too much pressure on the blades, shave with the grain and use a single blade razor.
4. Treat already ingrown hairs Carefully lift the ingrown end out with tweezers, but don't pluck the hair out. Using products that contain azulene and witch hazel will help reduce the redness and swelling.
And there you have it. Follow these steps for a few weeks, and you'll be able to keep that nasty razor bumps away.
