An ingrown hair occurs when shaved, waxed or tweezed hair grows back under the skin, causing inflammation and irritation.

3 Ways to inhibit this are:

1. Exfoliate using a dry/damp washcloth each time you shower after waxing.

2. Apply a product that contains salicylic acid (exfoliant)like Aveda’s Outer Peace Acne Relief Lotion to waxed areas.

3. Moisturize with a product that is free of perfume.
