Ingrown Pubic Hair – Six Tips

Ingrown Pubic Hair – Six Tips:

#1 For ingrown pubic hairs along the bikini line, hold a hot compress against ingrown spots for ten minutes three times a day to soften the skin and help the hairs work their way out.

#2 Wear loose-fitting underwear and clothing until the bumps are gone to avoid friction.

#3 Some find it helpful to exfoliate the area before waxing. This removes some of the dead skin cells in the top layer of skin cells that often contribute to trapping the hairs.

Exfoliating options include creams, lotions, or body gels, a slightly abrasive washcloth or glove specifically designed for exfoliation. Check at the beauty counter at your local department store.

#4 Do not exfoliate the skin if you already have ingrown pubic hairs as further skin irritation may result.

#5 When waxing, be sure to pull the hair out by the roots. Do not allow the hair to break below the skin surface.

#6 Use Ingrown Hair Treatment. It prevents pubic ingrown hair and eliminates existing ingrown hair within days.
