Four tips to prevent ingrown hairs
We always recommend you shave before your first IPL hair removal session - but how do you prevent those unwanted little ingrown hairs?
Keep reading to discover four tips in preventing the chance of getting an ingrown hair when preparing your skin for the treatment.
1. Don't dry shave your legs
Always make sure you use shaving cream, a lotion or a moisturising shower gel while you shave. Shaving dry hair can create sharp edges that are more prone to growing back into your skin.
2. Always use a sharp razor
Always ensure you are replacing your razor every few uses to ensure you are getting a smooth and easy shave. Blunt razors require you to go over certain areas a few times, which may irritate your skin and welcome ingrown hairs.
3. Shave in the direction that your hair grows
We know you've heard it before, but shaving in the direction of hair growth prevents your hair from curling back into your skin during the next phase of growth.
4. Don't use a tweezer
If you tweeze your hair, it might break under the skin surface and result in ingrown hair.
