Ingrown hair is the result of removed hair from your body trying to regrow through your skin but getting trapped by your skin growing over it. Whether you remove the hair by shaving, waxing, or tweezing, the skin can sometimes harden creating bumps, which makes it harder for the hair to poke through.
Ingrown Hair Treatment
Ingrown hair bumps are the result of the hardening of the freshly shaved skin. Keeping the skin moisturized and soft allows for the hair to poke through without getting trapped. Although not removing hair is the most efficient way to avoid ingrown hair, we understand that’s not realistic.
If you prefer to keep your skin hair-free, we suggest the following moisturizers to add to your skincare routine.
Dermal Therapy Alpha Hydroxy Lotion
Exfoliate dead skin that can sometimes trap hair follicles below with 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acids that work to remove old, dry skin and Silk Proteins that leave your skin with a silky, smooth, finish. 10% Urea helps nourish and moisturize your skin so you are less likely to experience ingrown hair bumps.
Dermal Therapy Body Wash
Begin your skincare routine in the shower. Gently cleanse your skin and lock in moisture with urea, a key component to naturally balancing your skin’s moisture. Combined with soothing green tea you’ll easily take care of any irritating bumps that still pop up when you shave.
