Here are some tips to remove those unwanted hair without irritation.
If you’re wondering what exactly causes ingrown-hairs, it’s clogged pores. Exfoliating and moisturizing skin between waxes is key, especially for sensitive skin types. Ingrown hairs are common increased areas such as the bikini line, where the skin is pressed together most of the day. Taking an extra second to exfoliate these areas regularly can really help prevent ingrown hairs.
If waxing still doesn’t feel right, you should consider sugaring as a healthy alternative, which is another form of hair removal that uses organic wax and feels gentler on the skin. Sugaring is still pulling out hair from the root, but most people find it less painful than waxing. Sugaring does not stick to live skin cells, only to the hair and dead skin cells, which means less irritation and discomfort. With sugaring, the entire hair including the root is removed. Over time, the root gets less and less blood supply to it resulting in less hair growth over time. Sugaring thins the hair and eventually kills the hair follicle in total. It’s better for people with sensitive skin because it pulls less on the skin compared to waxing, so it causes less irritation overall.
Cold wax can also be another option for those with sensitive skin. However, if you want to try hot wax, you might want to check in your leg first, if it doesn’t cause any kind of irritation, then you can consider applying wax in your hand. However, the safest option would be to use a razor; you can opt for both electric or manual razor.
Many of us live under this misconception that shaving thickens our hair. It has been one of the most normal procedures to remove hair from our bodies without any kind of infection. Make sure you wash your skin and apply skin friendly lotion after you shave.
