Shaving is a very popular way to remove unwanted hair. Though it’s quick and convenient, shaving is known for causing skin irritation, redness, razor burns, or even ingrown hairs.
Luckily, there are several ways to avoid these problems to help you achieve long lasting smoothness! Follow along as we explore some of the best skincare tips and products to help you remove unwanted hair even in the most sensitive areas of your body.
General Skincare Tips
Skincare is a fundamental part of improving the quality, smoothness, and elasticity of your skin for years to come. Since hair growth takes place under the surface of the skin, having a regular skincare routine can help give you the best hair removal results.
If you struggle with redness, razor burns, or ingrown hair, here are three effective skincare tips to help you find relief.
1. Clean and exfoliate the skin before removing hair
Before jumping straight into hair removal, it’s important to wash and prep the skin. Cleaned and freshly exfoliated skin can help clear your pores and reduce any oil buildup that can prevent proper hair removal. Exfoliation can also help prevent ingrown hairs.
2. Keep the skin hydrated
Having healthy, hydrated skin is one of the best skin care tips for reducing dry or irritated skin after shaving or waxing. Some of the best ways to keep your skin extra-hydrated is by moisturizing daily and drinking plenty of water.
Not only can staying hydrated help decrease pain while waxing, but it may help ease the lingering sensations of pain, redness, and swelling afterwards. For this same reason, it’s important to minimize your intake of any dehydrating products before hair removal such as alcohol, coffee, or salty snacks.
3. Try waxing or cream products
One of the best ways to avoid razor burn and ingrown hair growth is by switching the razor out for a quality waxing or cream-based hair removal product.
Unlike shaving, waxing removes hair follicles from the root to help minimize irritation, redness, or ingrown hair growth. Similarly, depilatory creams prevent ingrown hairs by dissolving rather than cutting the hair to give you smoother skin.
