Banish Ingrown Hairs for Good

For many people the battle to remove hair is a tricky one. You can either have smooth skin and ingrown hairs or forgo hair removal all together. Luckily, this is far from the truth. Today, we’re talking about ingrowns, bumps and finally winning the battle against them for good.


Step 1: Ditch the Razor

Waxing may seem scary, but if you haven’t already ditched the razor for good, now is the time. Shaving irritates the skin and creates a blunt end to the hair shaft, encouraging the development of an ingrown hair. Waxing eliminates this by removing the hair entirely from the follicle, so when the hair returns it can break through the skin smoothly. Although it’s less common, waxing can still cause ingrowns. However, they are much easier to prevent and get rid of than with shaving.


Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and surface debris that can trap the hair beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in unsightly bumps. However, not all types of exfoliation are equal and some are better than others. Using a gentle exfoliating cloth is key in keeping your skin smooth and bump free. The Body Buffing Cloth is our favorite method for daily exfoliation, because it’s gentle enough for every body part and is anti-microbial, so it resists growing bacteria. Plus, it’s machine washable so it’ll last you forever!


Step 3: Treat

Following daily exfoliation, application of a treatment product is recommended. Here at Designer’s Denn we have many options, for all skin types.


PFB and PFB Chromabright: These roll-on formulas are great for all skin types, except for those with extra sensitive skin. Original PFB is formulated with gentle exfoliants such as glycolic acid and willow bark extract that leave skin feeling fresh and clean. PFB Chromabright is designed for those who suffer from ingrown hairs and dark spots, thanks to its proprietary formula that inhibits tyrosinase activity by 37%, essential in treating dark spots. As an added bonus, both are gentle enough to use on the face, so you can use them anywhere!


Tend Skin: If you get large, inflamed bumps after waxing, Tend Skin should be in your arsenal of products. Tend skin works by gently exfoliating and disinfecting the area, reducing inflammation and killing the bacteria that may be causing your bumps.


Decléor Post Wax Cream: This miracle lotion is great for extra sensitive skin and not only by prevents ingrowns and soothes irritation, but helps slow down hair growth so you can go longer in between waxes.


Remember, with any of these methods, consistency is key! Book your waxing appointments every 4-6 weeks apart, faithfully apply your products daily, and exfoliate every time you shower and you’ll be seeing smooth, clear skin in no time.

All products featured today are available to purchase in house at Designer’s Denn. Call our front desk staff today to book your waxing appointment today!
