    How To Treat Ingrown Hairs

    Best products to treat ingrown hairs

    The key to preventing ingrown hairs is to have a routine that: 1) unclogs the pores; and 2) softens the skin/hair before and after hair removal. By satisfying these conditions, the hair will be able to grow up and through the skin as opposed to getting trapped and becoming ingrown. Here is our recommended routine: 

    Step #1: Unclog pores
    The Nordic Dry Brush will unclog your pores and allow your skin to breathe. Made with densely packed all natural bristles, this brush will gently sweep away dead skin cells and unclog your pores. We recommend using this product 1-3 times a week (pre-shower) - depending on how sensitive your skin is. Lightly stroke the brush in an upward motion towards your heart.

    Step #2: Exfoliate
    Treat your skin to a gentle scrubbing in the shower. Using a combination of nourishing ingredients and essential oils, our sugar scrubs will deep clean your pores and let your skin breatheWe recommend using the scrub 2-3 times a week in the shower - depending on how sensitive your skin is. 

    Step #3: Treat
    Our treatment oils were formulated to tackle your ingrown hairs by softening the skin/hair, making it easier for the hair to grow back normally. We recommend using a treatment oil on a daily basis. For the best results, apply the product within two minutes of stepping out of the shower since the skin is most absorbent during this time. 

     Step #4: Repeat
    When it comes to preventing ingrown hairs, consistency is key. Each product in this collection will work together to keep your skin clean, moisturized and exfoliated  - a combination that will minimize any future occurrence of ingrown hairs.
