No, Ingrown Hair, You May Not Have A Place On The Face

So, you think you have your list of skin concerns sussed – then out of the blue without any warning, the dreaded ingrown hair suddenly appears. What’s worse, there seems to be no getting rid of it without serious skin removal – it’s as if it has self-set in concrete! Well, if this rings a rather large bell, fear not; here are the best tips and product advice to ensure the unwanted guest is permanently removed from your face (or anywhere else). I love

1.Exfoliate

Clogged hair follicles may cause hairs to grow inwards/sideways (any way but the right way). To Prevent this from happening as well as removing the stubborn already established hair by simply exfoliating in a circular motion and on a regular basis. The best products to use will contain BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) or salicylic acid. Alternatively, a sugar scrub (with as little oil as possible to prevent clogging) can help. I love Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant £26, Look Fantastic.

2.Tease Out With Tweezers

If you can see the hair near to the surface, try to carefully tease this out with a pair of tweezers, but always make sure they are sterilised.

3.Warm Water

Before hair removal soak a cloth in warm water and gently dampen the area you are about to treat.

4.Never Shave Eyebrow (or Any Other Are on Your Face)

There have been a few suggestions in the media about whether shaving areas on your face is a good idea. I cannot speak for everyone, but generally speaking unless you like stubble and ingrown hairs, avoid this one at all costs.

5.Ingrown Hair Preventative Products

Aside from exfoliating with a sugar scrub or products that contain BHA or salicylic acid, you can also aid in the prevention of these irksome hairs with specific ingrown hair treatments. There are many on the market but the best one I have come across is the Skin Doctors Hair More Hair Inhibitor Spray, (approximately £10 for 120ml). Buy here

The Best At-Home Gadgets worth Their Weight In Gold

Hey Lovelies!

As a beauty editor I have to test all of the latest beauty devices, so I thought I’d share with you the best at-home gadgets that truly are worth their weight in gold. Read on:

1.For Acne/Blemishes Try Tria Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light, £179 (Was £199), www.triabeauty.co.uk

triabeauty

There’s no need to suffer from acne – this awesome device delivers acne-destroying blue light that targets pores and eradicates the bacteria lurking underneath the surface of the skin. Also combined is a cleanser and spot treatment to further address the problem. What’s so great about this product is that you know you are effectively treating the problem without causing irritation or hurting your skin with harsh chemicals used in other acne-reducing products.

2.For Cleansing Try The Foreo Luna 2, £169, wwwforeo.com

foreo.com

I absolutely love this device. The Foreo LUNA 2 doubles up as an outstanding cleanser and anti-aging tool in one. It’s brush head is 50% larger, thus achieving super-fast cleansing, and offers 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute. This amazing gadget makes quick work of ridding your skin of impurities, whilst simultaneously targeting and treating fine lines and wrinkles. There’s no messing about with the LUNA 2 – it delivers on its promise and you will notice a significant improvement in your skin (and the compliments you receive). Furthermore, one charge enables up to 450 uses, so there is very little faffing around.

3.For Hair Removal Try The SmoothSkin Muse, £319 Was £399), www.smoothskin.com

smoothskin.com

Known as the intelligent IPL for good reason – it works. I have to say this product goes far and beyond my expectations of any at-home IPL device. This Gold Winner of the Beauty Awards, 2017 is the answer to your hair removal woes. Fast, effective and virtually painless, the gadget makes light work of breaking the hair cycle and preventing regrowth so problematic stubble becomes a distant memory. Yay!
