Sometimes, after removing your hair, some hair threads tend to get thinner and they no longer have the power to pierce the outer layer of the skin, and so they grow up under your skin.
You can see them, but you can’t feel them because the skin is smooth as nothing would be underneath it. However, these hair threads grown underneath the skin should be removed not only for the sake of beauty but also for health.
And if you follow these 4 tips, you will get rid of ingrown hair without pain nor scars.
Step 1. Start with a warm bath that will soften your skin and will allow you to easily remove the hair grown under the skin. Warm water has the power to open the pores and thus contributes successfully to your beauty ritual. If you’re in a hurry and have no time for bathing, apply a warm cotton towel on the troubled areas and leave it there for 10-15 minutes. The same thing you can do after removing your hair, no matter which hair removal method you choose.
Step 2. Skin exfoliation plays a very important role in removing your hair, so use a scrub or a lump to remove the dead skin layer from the surface. In the areas where hair grew underneath the skin, apply the scrub using circular and gentle movements without insisting very much.
Step 3. Use a quality tweezers to extract the hair threads grown under the skin. Before using this procedure, disinfect the tweezers with rubbing alcohol or vodka. Then use a paper towel to wipe the tweezers. With a lot of delicacy, but also with precision, remove carefully the thin skin layer that covers the hair, and then extract the hair thread.
Step 4. To speed up healing, apply tea tree oil over the affected areas to avoid any infection.
