Step one

The first thing you need to do is to ensure that your skin is soft and smooth before you begin the process. If your skin is harsh, it'll only end up making things a lot more difficult and painful for you. So, to begin with, take a washcloth and dip it in warm water. Once it's completely soaked, take it out and apply it on the affected area to help open up the pores and soften your skin.

Next, take an exfoliator of your choice and apply some of it on the area. Start massaging the area gently in circular motions with the scrub. Exfoliating ensures that any dead skin that is caught up in the area gets removed so that it doesn't interfere in the removal process of your ingrown hairs.

Once you're done exfoliating the area, take a few drops of tea tree oil and apply it on the area to nourish and soften the skin. Since tea tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it will ensure that there's no redness or swelling on your skin. Plus, it'll help get rid of any bacteria that's lurking on your skin.

Finally, once everything is done, take a tweezer and pull the hair out in a sweep gentle motion if the hair is exposed. In case your hair is not yet exposed then you should wait for the hair to come out. If you try to squeeze out your ingrown hair it can lead to bacterial infections which can make situations worse for your skin rather than better. Well, try these steps and see how well it works for you.
