PFB: Solution for Ingrown Hairs and Bumps
Waxing and shaving equal sexily awesome smoothness (waxing of course lasting longer but I won’t rant about that here. Save it for another post Sheena….) But there can be side effects. Unsightly, uncomfortable side effects. Bumps, itching, ingrown hairs, breakouts, dry peeling skin…things that don’t feel sexy and are extremely frustrating.
Most people go through the standard steps of exfoliating before and after and that usually helps. There are a lucky few though that continue to experience problems.
Where I see breakouts become the biggest problem is on guys when they get their backs or chests waxed. My heart goes out to them. Not only do they get picked on for body hair that they have no control over (ladies can you imagine how it would feel to have everyone point out your body hair and exclaim “EWWW!!”? Have some compassion.) But they then go through the expensive and painful process of waxing…only to have the area then break out in big, painful bumps and ingrown hairs. So sad.
Working in spas you see it a lot. But it’s only in the last year that I’ve seen something that really works. At Le Petit Spa we can’t even keep this stuff on the shelves.
It’s a roll on gel called PFB Vanish, Perfect For Bumps, that has a small percentage of Salicylic Acid, Glycolic and Lactic Acid in it. This helps to exfoliate and dissolve oil and buildup, effectively getting rid of ingrown hairs. It has moisturizers as well, so it doesn’t dry out the skin as much as other similar products.
So for guys this is fantastic, as long as they can get someone to put it on their backs for them. 24 hours after waxing, start putting it on morning and night. It’s dries quickly and you’ll see a noticeable reduction in bumps. It can also be used on on the beard area if you get a lot of razor bur or ingrowns.
Women, you should use it too! Legs, underarms, bikini lines. It does not matter. Roll it on and start seeing results in a day or too. Hair removal can be sexy again.
