11 tips to say goodbye to ingrown hairs!

With summer coming, comes the long-awaited beach and pool days! With those days also comes the need to wear swimsuits and bikinis which, without these tips, can beproblematic.

The truth is that for those who suffer (as I did) from the tendency to create ingrown hairs, this time can become more complicated because we have to wax more often and also perspire more. But don't worry because with this post you'll be ready to get the smooth, inflammation-free skin you've always wanted.

  1. Never epilate when your skin is dry.It won't work well and you will end up with a lot of ingrown hairs and even cuts, because the razor will not glide effectively and safely. So even if you're in a hurry, resist the temptation and take it easy.

  2. Let your skin (and also your hair) be prepared. Before you pick up your reusable blade (if you are still using the disposable ones, this post is for you), stay in the shower or bath for a few minutes. The hot water will help soften the hair and that will make all the difference when it comes time to wax. And what's 2 or 3 minutes to avoid the discomfort of itchy days and inflamed skin?

  3. Exfoliate every week.This ritual will completely change how your skin reacts to waxing. Your pores will also be cleaner, so you will avoid imperfections. I recommend the Stimulates to improve the skin and remove all dead skin cells.

  4. ALWAYS use a depilatory oil. This tip is the most precious of all and the reason why, not satisfied with what was on the market, I created the SUAVE oil. In addition to helping glide the bladeavoiding cuts and making the process much easier, the ingredients were handpicked to soothe the skin and moisturize at the same time.

  5. Use the razor sharp. Change the refill of your blade frequently in order to avoid passing the blade over and over again in the same place. A blade razor will allow you to shave more effectively and avoid inflammation of the skin.

  6. Epilate in the direction of hair growth Contrary to what you might think, this is the right direction to avoid irritating the skin and causing ingrown hairs. By swiping razor in the opposite direction you are cutting the hair too short, increasing the chance of causing it to ingrown when it starts to grow.

  7. The less the better! The more often you run the blade in the same place, the more likely you are to cause skin irritation. That's why tip #4 is so important.

  8. Clean the blade between passes. Whenever you pass the blade on the skin, rinse it with water. A blade clean is more effective! If you need tips to keep yours always in great condition, read this post

  9. Be careful with the towel. After shaving it is important to dry yourself gently. Do not pass the towel with too much pressure.

  10. HIDRAT. HIDRAT. HYDRAT. After bathing it is always good to nourish the skin, but after shaving it is a must! To reinforce the anti-inflammatory care and soothe the skin, you can use your SUAVE after showering as a moisturizer. Or trylightweight moisturizer - super rich and nourishing and with ingredients that also soothe the skin.

  11. Avoid clothes that are too tight. After shaving, avoid wearing clothes that cause too much friction and you will also avoid ingrown hairs and inflammation. If you can, shave at night, so you can wear comfortable pajamas and have a perfect bikini line the next day.
