How to Avoid Ingrown Hairs After Waxing?
After you remove hair from waxing or sugaring your skin is left with clean open pores that are susceptible to debris that can cause ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs — nobody wants those!
Here at Sugar and Skin Spa we ask clients to exfoliate one-two times per week to maintain those clean pores and to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs by removing debris and dead skin cells that can clog the pores.
Exfoliate once or twice a week
Exfoliate With a Sugar Scrub
It is important to use a non-comedogenic oil in the scrub such as grapeseed, hemp or sweet almomd oil
wait 24 hours after waxing or sugaring to exfoliate
We recommend that our clients exfoliate with a sugar scrub specifically made per Sugar and Skin Spa’s specifications because we know how it is made, we know what’s in it and we know it’s good for you! It’s natural: Organic Sugar, Grapeseed Oil with a touch of Azelaic Acid. Grapeseed oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores and the Azelaic Acid kills bacteria that cause acne, so it too works to keep the pores clean. Our scrub is thick, using less oil than others and reduces the slippery, oily mess in the shower.
How Do We Care for Ingrown Hairs at the Spa?
Sometimes, even with exfoliating and taking proper care of your skin, you can still get ingrown hairs. There is a variety of reasons for this, and we can help remove them. If you are prone to ingrown hairs we recommend that you book a Vajacial (women) or Pelvic area cleanse (men). During this treatment we cleanse the skin, do a light exfoliation, extractions that need to be done to include ingrown hairs, and finish with a soothing mask. This can be done as an add-on service with a Brazilian , Deepline or Bikini Sugaring or as a stand alone service.
Ingrown hairs can occur for anyone and we offer suggestions and solutions to help clients rid themselves of this annoying and often painful condition. Let us know how we can help you!
