An electric epilator is a great way to permanently forget about the vegetation on your legs and in the bikini area. But the joy of smooth skin can overshadow one side effect – ingrown hair. In order not to face a similar problem, which sometimes requires surgical intervention, it is necessary to know how to prevent ingrown hairs.
You will need
- – sugar scrub with salicylic acid;
- – "Bacillol";
- – lotion against ingrown hairs;
- – brush with synthetic bristles;
- – Chlorhexidine;
- – furacilin;
- – thin needle;
- – Tweezers.
Before epilation, it is worth taking some measures. First, disinfect the hands and blades of the device with liquid "Bacillol". Normal alcohol does not remove all microbes and can cause corrosion of the metal.
Secondly, to prevent ingrown hair before applying the epilator, you need to do a skin peeling of the legs. This requires a scrub with hard particles. The procedure is performed on steamed skin after a bath.
To enhance the effect of scrub is to use a synthetic brush for the body. It is necessary to put a scrub on the body and rub it with ascending movements. This procedure will facilitate the pulling of the hair, preventing them from tearing at the root.
To warn ingrown hair during epilation is possible, if the procedure is carried out correctly. First, it is necessary to treat the leg with an ice cube – the skin wrinkles, and the hairs are raised. Then pull the skin on yourself and hold the epilator from the bottom up.
To minimize the risk and prevent ingrown hair during epilation, it is not necessary to carry out the procedure during critical days, in a state of intoxication (some girls consume alcohol as an anesthetic), and also if a bad day (a mood fell, everything falls from the hands etc.). Compliance with these simple rules will make the epilation less painful.
Sometimes women learn about the problem of ingrowning after the procedure, for some reason ignoring the precautionary measures. In this case, it is necessary to remove ingrown hairs after the epilator
or to prevent its occurrence.
