You know how to take care of your face but what about your bikini area?! More than 85 percent of our first time bikini sugaring clients have ingrown hair problems, often caused by waxing, shaving or not knowing how to take care of skin "down there". At Sugaring London we can help you to get rid of ingrown hair and instead give you super smooth, healthy positively glowing skin.
So what can cause ingrown hair? Waxing. When you get waxed the therapist takes the hair off against the direction of the hair growth. This can cause trauma on the hair and trauma can lead to breakage. Breakage in return can lead to ingrown hair.
2. Picking: At Sugaring London we refer to picking as "Russian roulette" - sometimes you are lucky and nothing happens, but most of the time "you get the bullet"- in this case: a red irritate follicle or even worse infected follicle with puss - not a great look. Moreover, your hands carry most bacteria- or even worse tweezing - tweezers can cause your skin to break, your follicle to get inflamed and potentially lead to scaring. So stop picking.
3. dry skin. If you don't hydrate your skin enough- i.e. if you don't drink enough water or moisturise daily your skin well be hard, this results in your new hair having problems to come through your skin- so hydrate. The more water you drink, the more plum your skin becomes. The more easy it is for your hair to pop out.
4. Unexperienced therapists- always, always get sugared by a qualified sugaring expert. Sugaring has been a tradition from many, many years - yes, the ancient Egyptians used to do it- but not necessary all therapists are trained to sugar with the direction of hair growth. If you feel you get sugared in an incorrect way, ask to stop treatment. Sugaring against the hair growth can lead to breakage and can ingrown hair. So don't be shy to say something- it's your skin after all!
At Sugaring London we want your beauty regime to be super low maintenance but with fast and lasting results. In terms of prevention and/ or getting rid of ingrown hair this means: sugar at least every 4-5 weeks, exfoliate twice a week, moisturise daily and if necessary treat with a mud mask and/or Dead Sea salt twice a week.
Please don't hesitate to ask us next time you come in for your sugaring treatment.
