What is the impact of skin damage on the formation of ingrown hair?
Shaving damages the edge of the hair follicle, often leaving red circular marks on the skin. The same happens when you remove hair with wax. The skin starts to repair itself, creating new protective cells in the damaged area. These cells form a dry layer that hinders hair growth. As a result, the hair starts to grow horizontally along the skin’s surface or even turns downward. This can lead to an uncomfortable itching sensation and inflammation in the hair follicle.
The right hair removal method is one of the prevention methods for ingrown hair.
In Xylitol-based hair removal, the hair is removed in the natural direction of hair growth. Xylitol-containing mass balances and soothes the skin and is a natural antiseptic. Home care also plays a significant role because maintaining flexible and soft skin allows hair to grow naturally. Exfoliate the skin weekly and apply moisturizer daily. It’s especially important for dry skin to ensure your diet includes enough good fatty acids, vegetables, E-vitamin (e.g., from olive oil), and water.
Home care for ingrown hair:
Do not cleanse the skin with any drying substances since the goal is to keep the skin flexible and moisturized. For intimate area cleansing, we recommend Cookie Wash Caramel cleansing fluid, which takes care of your bikini area and also works well as a cleansing agent for other skin areas. The saccharose-based cleansing fluid containing Xylitol moisturizes, reduces skin irritation, and balances the microbe count on the skin.
The Ingrown Hair Inhibitor cream, designed especially for ingrown hair, contains moisturizing oils and salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is an excellent product for skin inflammations and irritations due to its soothing effect. Salicylic acid can penetrate the hair follicle and act internally. If you don’t have severe ingrown hair problems, you can care for your skin with Caramel cream, which contains skin-nourishing and softening natural ingredients such as shea and cocoa butter. The cream’s Panthenol and Xylitol, on the other hand, soothe skin irritations.
Weekly exfoliation removes dry surface skin cells and can be done once a week. However, remember to exfoliate with gentle ingredients, such as Caramel Scrub containing cane sugar and nourishing shea and cocoa butter. Enzymatic Sensitive Peel exfoliation is recommended for preparing the skin before hair removal. It exfoliates and softens the skin before hair removal. This exfoliation is particularly effective for skin prone to ingrown hair and dryness.
