Ingrown hair refers to the hair growing back into the skin, or dead skin clogging the hair follicles, causing the hair to grow horizontally. It often causes itching and mild pain. They look like small red spots on the skin, about the size of an acne, and may cause infection.
1. Use warm water and moisturizing soap to clean the areas that are often shaved.
Hair that is often shaved is the easiest to ingrown. Therefore, these parts must be cleaned frequently to keep them clean. If you often have ingrown hairs, you can also apply antibacterial ointments to provide extra protection to prevent them from getting infected.
2. Before shaving, rinse the relevant parts with warm water.
Shaving directly on dry skin will make the hair easier to grow ingrown, and the skin is also prone to irritation. Therefore, before shaving, it is better to rinse the area with warm water for 2-3 minutes. You can also wash your face with a mild cleanser first. After applying the shaving cream, wait 2-3 minutes for the skin to soften before using epilator and shaver.
3. Shave in the direction of hair growth.
Shaving in the direction of growth is less prone to ingrown hair. And when shaving, the razor should not be too close to the skin. The longer and straighter the hair is, the less likely it is to grow into the skin. Therefore, it is better to use a single-blade shaver or electric hair removal epilator and avoid using a multi-blade razor. Make sure that the hair epilator machine is as sharp as a new one. The blade will become dull after a long time, and it will spread bacteria. Then the shaved hair is uneven, which increases the chance of ingrown hair.
You can try a laser hair removal device. The principle of laser hair removal is mainly based on selective photothermal action. Hair follicles and hair shafts are rich in melanin. The hair removal device uses a suitable wavelength to penetrate the laser into the hair follicle to act on these melanin. After the melanin absorbs energy, the temperature will rise sharply, which will destroy the hair follicles and the surrounding hair growth stem cells, thereby removing the hair.
Regardless of the hair anywhere on the body (including pubic hair), laser hair removal permanent is almost the safest way to remove hair. Except for a slight tingling sensation, there is basically no other special discomfort during the whole process of hair removal laser treatment, and the damage to the skin is extremely low.
There may be a slight burning sensation after body laser hair removal, and some people may have mild erythema and follicular papules on the skin irradiated by the laser, which can disappear within a few hours. A very small number of people may experience blisters, temporary pigmentation, etc., but most will recover after a few months. Compared with other methods of hair removal, hair laser treatment machines are popular among girls because of their low side effects and good effects.
