So you don’t want to give up your waxing or shaving routine but you can’t stand all the red bumps or rash. We understand. Which is why we’ve studied this area for years and have invested the time reviewing a variety of products and treatments. The first thing you should do though is to find out what causes your ingrown hairs.
First, try the basic:
Exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize every single day with a pumice glove.
Be gentle and use a good quality soap. Lather the soap in the glove and gently scrub the area. Do this every day until the bumps subside. Apply a light moisturizer or ingrown hair serum after.
The glove and soap we recommend is: The Tuel Body Polish kit
“Berodin Body Wash and exfoliating gloves leave your skin refreshed and perfectly clean. Glycolic gently exfoliates and helps prevent bumps and treat ingrown hairs, making this the perfect daily body wash before and after waxing services. The natural benefits of Pine Essential Oil clean and condition the body while refreshing and energizing the mind. Bladderwrack contains Sea Minerals that nourish and prevent dryness.” berodinwax.com
If that is not working try an ingrown hair serum.
