Ingrown Hairs? Try an Exfoliating Post-Shave Scrub — Here Are 5 We Love
Ingrown hairs can be stubborn to address, which is why taking care of the skin in the areas you shave is key. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, ingrown hairs are caused by curved follicles that re-enter the skin once the hair is cut and start to grow back. You can help avoid incidents of ingrown hairs and razor bumps in a multitude of ways, one of which includes post-shave exfoliation. Ahed, find five exfoliators we love.
To keep your skin nourished and soft, try this pure sugar scrub with cocoa from L’Oréal Paris.
