Hate ingrown hairs? Those annoying little bumps of trapped hair under your skin? Sometimes, they even become infected and turn into painful pus-filled blisters- no thank you!
What causes ingrown hairs?
Ingrown hairs often occur when a hair follicle is clogged with dead skin cells, trapping hairs under the skin. This is because we shed around 600,000 skin particles every hour- and if we don't remove these excess particles, they trap hairs under the epidermis (top layer of your skin), causing ingrown hairs! Other causes include frequent hair removal, and tight clothing.
How can i get rid of ingrown hairs?
A great way to remove ingrown hairs is to regularly exfoliate. Exfoliating removes the excess dead skin cells that would otherwise clog pores, and free any trapped hairs!
The CheekyGlo Exfoliating Body Glove is a great mechanical way to exfoliate your skin! Use it to scrub off dead skin and impurities, to remove those pesky ingrowns, for smooth soft skin!
Regular exfoliation (once a week) can also help prevent future ingrown hairs, as it allows razors to get closer to the skin! It also prevents ingrown hairs from forming, and is an amazing way to achieve smooth, clear skin.
