Top Tips to prevent ingrown hairs

No cure exists for ingrown hairs but it is possible to decrease the occurrence of them with the following tips:

  • Keep the skin softened and hydrated by using a body lotion between your waxing treatments. We recommend Dermalogica Body Conditioning Lotion as it also contains some hydroxy acids which helps to gently exfoliate the skin too.
  • Exfoliate your skin between your waxes to remove dead skin cells and help to dislodge surface ingrown hairs. A professional exfoliation treatment can be helpful.
  • Apply a lotion specifically designed to ‘out’ ingrown hairs such as In Grow Go.
  • For inflamed ingrown hairs use Dermalogica’s Special Clearing Booster as the benzyl peroxide will help to improve the condition.
  • If these tips do not work then temporarily switch to an alternative method of hair removal to see if this resolves the problem.
