Ingrown Hairs and Salicylic Acid
No matter how well we think we have mastered the razor, those pesky ingrown just seem to continually crop up, Ugh…no matter how well we think we have mastered the razor. To smooth them away, apply a dab of acne treatment gel or moisturizer containing salicylic acid to the bumps twice a day. After the gel soaks in massage the area with a soft baby toothbrush. The gentle acid will melt the dead cells that are blocking the follicles and the soft bristles will help coax out the tip of the hair without the sting of harsh scrubs.
