They're painful, annoying, and unfortunately the only major way to deal with them is through prevention.
Everyone's skin is different; you need to pay specific attention to your skin's sensitivity level. If you experience ingrown hairs, razor bumps or redness try these extra precautions.
* Exfoliate 24 hours before, then 48 hours post removal, begin exfoliating the area daily. The waxing experts at Shobha created this amazing Exfoliating Cloth made from 100% natural plant fibers, it lasts a year, is machine washable and absolutely effective at preventing ingrown hairs. Only $15 for a year free of ingrown hairs!
* Apply a "post removal" product. They're perfect for keeping the area clean and returning the skin to a natural balance. They aren't harsh and won't irritate the area further. We have some great brands to choose from Hovan's Group, PFB vanish and Satin Smooth. I personally use the Tend Skin Refillable Roll-On, it's super convenient.
* Avoid exercising and wearing tighter clothing the first few hours after waxing or epilating. Think about it, you've just completely removed the hair all the way down to the root; you're skin is sensitive and very vulnerable at this time so treat it that way.
