How To Deal With Ingrown Hairs
How To Deal With In-Growing Hairs: Beauty therapist Victoria Nash shows you how to deal with in-growing hairs, which occurs when a hair is too weak to break through the surface of the skin. It is always best to remove them to avoid infection, so learn how to with VideoJug's helpful video.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliate weekly with a body scrub or washable mitt in the shower, which will remove dead skin cells and lift the hair away from the skin. Apply the scrub to dry skin and wash off in the shower.
Step 2: Removal
It is possible to remove in-growing hairs with tweezers if you are careful not to break the skin. Pluck the hairs in the direction of hair growth so you don't break off the hair strand. If a hair is deeply imbedded in the skin, apply a lotion containing AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) which will eliminate dead skin cells and help the hair to rise to the surface.
