Exfoliate your skin regularly

Exfoliating your skin ensures that dirt, grime and impurities are all pulled out from your skin. It can also work well in opening up your clogged pores and your hair follicles so that your razor is able to do its job properly or that your wax is able to pull out your hair from its roots. This can truly help prevent ingrown hair.

Moisturise your skin

Just like exfoliating, you must also moisturise your skin regularly. It helps keep your skin smooth and soft and opting for it after you've removed your hair can help tone down inflammation as well. The softer your skin is, the easier it will be for your hair to break out instead of being stuck inside.

Use antibacterial products

Once you're done getting your hair removed, you must sanitise the areas by opting for antibacterial products since these products can help prevent ingrown hair. Use antibacterial soaps, bathing gels or solutions after hair removal as they can help combat inflammation. As we mentioned earlier, if your skin is smooth and soft there are a lot fewer chances of you ending up with ingrown hair.

Wear breezy clothes after hair removal

When you wear something tight and constricting right after hair removal, there can be friction between the cloth and your skin which in turn can lead to ingrown hair. So, opt for something easy-breezy after you've removed your hair as it can help your skin breathe and keep it soft and smooth.
