How to stop ingrown hairs...?



Start exfoliating about 3 days after your waxing session, continue to exfoliate every 2 – 3 days until the hair starts coming back through. 


Don’t ‘overexfoliate’. You don’t want to damage your skin or make it sore. Exfoliating only really needs to take 1-2 minutes per area (e.g. legs, face, arms, bikini area). It doesn’t need to be a heavy handed process, you can be range from gentle to firm depending where you’re working on.


There are several ways you can exfoliate. Experiment and find what works for you!
