How to avoid in-grown hairs
An ingrown hair refers to one that has grown back into your skin as opposed to rising up from it. Without a proper chemical or physical exfoliant body care routine, dead skin can clog your hair follicles forcing the hair to grow sideways under your skin, rather than up and out.
We highly recommend exfoliating the skin with a fragrance free chemical exfoliant or physical exfoliant. Removing dead skin cells from the skin's surface is of paramount importance when preventing bacteria, sweat and dirt from getting stuck underneath the skins surface.
Exfoliating is a key step in your body care routine. Not only does it improve the overall health of your skin by removing built up dead skin cells, it also helps for other products to penetrate better into skins surface. Regularly exfoliating is key to preventing and treating ingrown hairs, as well as inflamed pores. It can be beneficial for removing dry or dull skin as it increases blood circulation and brightens your skin to improve its appearance. It is important to be gentle with your skin and use small, circular motions when using your fingers or an exfoliating tool of your choice.
We recommend exfoliating on the body below the neck once a week. If you have a skin condition, or if you’re unsure how often you should exfoliate your skin, talk to a dermatologist.
