Say Bye Bye to Razor Bumps, Ingrown Hairs & Hyperpigmentation

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

With summer coming to an end and fall approaching. Now is the best time to give your skin the TLC (Tender Love and Care) that it truly deserves. Shaving is one of the most annoying yet highly expected and requested thing to do as a woman. Maintaining flawless clean shaven skin may come simple for some, but for a majority of women, it's a hard thing to accomplish and maintain. Most problems appear post shave and are practically impossible to avoid. Those being ingrown hairs, razor bumps and hyperpigmentation.

For those of you who don't understand why you constantly get ingrown hairs while others don't. Let me let you in on a little secret. Those who don't exfoliate daily and have thicker, darker or curly hair are the main people who suffer from them. Ingrown hairs form when your hair curls back and grows into the skin. Also dead skin can clog up the hair follicle, thus forcing it to grow sideways instead of up and out. Razor bumps on the other hand, allow the hair to grow out but during the process, the hair irritates the skin while it grows and breaks through the surface. Thus the constant irritation and redness. Lastly, hyperpigmentation is caused from the irritation of the skin surface thus leaving you with an unflattering souvenir.

Now for the fun part. The various solutions that I have personally done and still do to maintain a flawless bikini and underarm area. Solution #1: LASER HAIR REMOVAL. I am a die hard believer in this hair removal method. If you have tried shaving, waxing, depilatories (Nair) and still get ingrowns, razor bumps and hyperpigmentation. This is the end all, be all to those problems. Not only does laser hair removal permanently remove the hair, it also helps eliminate whatever razor bumps and ingrowns that you may have. After each treatment you will see a significant difference in your skin as well as your hair texture and growth.

For those of you who are not interested in Laser Hair Removal but want to get rid of those pesky ingrown hair, razor bumps and hyperpigmentation, here are a list of my favorite products that 100% work. Solution #2: PFB Vanish Chromabright.

This product is great for removing ingrown hairs and hyperpigmentation. I stumbled across this product a few months ago and fell in love with its magic. After my terrible experience with the depo shot. I began to develop chin and under neck hairs. I thought I could remove it with a razor and have no issues ( I clearly was wrong) and began to develop ingrown hairs as well as hyperpigmentation. Not only did this product eliminate my ingrowns, it also exfoliated my skin and lightened my dark spots. Note that this product will dry out your skin (this is what helps bring up those ingrowns) BUT after shedding off that top layer, you will have brand new flawless skin. I have also tried this on my bikini area and happy trail and I SWEAR BY IT!! This product does not burn nor does it irritate the skin. I have the most sensitive skin ever so trust me, I KNOW.

Solution #3: Kojic Acid Soap. I use this not only on my body but also my face. This soap is amazing for lighting hyperpigmentation, dark knees/elbows, acne scars and is also great for drying out and eliminating acne. This product will dry your skin so I do advise you to moisturize afterwards but it is extremely effective. Oily skin people this is your savior.

All of the products listed above can be purchased on amazon. I hope that you have enjoyed today's beauty article. If you do decide to test these products out let me know how they work for you. Don't forget to take before and after's. The difference is phenomenal and worth capturing.

p.s. I was not asked to write this post nor am I sponsored by these brands. I truly do believe in these products and I hope you do too!

Until next time
