Ingrown Hair

Most often triggered by shaving, ingrown hair is hair that has become trapped in the hair follicle and in some cases has become infected, causing small bumps and sensitive skin. Soothing products such as Aloe and Chamomile can calm irritated skin. However, exfoliation is a key method of prevention. Exfoliants come in all forms. For facial skin, look for products that exfoliate using enzyme action rather than abrasives such as beads, crushed seeds, etc. For legs and other areas of the body, use exfoliants infused with micronutrients that will penetrate the skin to nourish while exfoliating.
