Ingrow Go by Skin Doctors
Summer skin, whether you like to get a tan, fake it (safer) or just get your legs out, it needs to be smooth and that often means shaving or waxing.
If you suffer from ingrowing hairs or ‘razor bumps’ hair removal is not doing you any favours – but once you’ve started would you really dare to go natural? Each to their own, but for me, however hairy legs and armpits are not an option (although I am not immune to a few prickles! ?)
The problem with ingrowing hairs starts when you remove the hair and then it starts to grow the wrong way. Growing the wrong way means the hair can start to grow round the follicle and then it finds it hard to get out from under your skin, (curly hair is rather prone to this).
Simply put it is a powerful exfoliator that will whisk away the dead skin cells and therefore allow the hairs an easy escape route. And just as they pop up to the surface you can attack them again with your razor!!
No fuss application
Hair removal is a bit of a faff, often messy, sometimes painful and more often than not a chore.
Ingrow go, however is super simple to use ? Just apply it via a cotton wool pad directly to your skin.
It smells quite strong and ‘medical’, the first ingredient is alcohol, (the smell doesn’t linger on application). Bear in mind as there is alcohol, don’t apply it to broken skin, sunburnt skin or immediately after hair removal (? ouch)
The instructions say do a skin patch test and wait 24 hours – which is very good advice…. personally I didn’t bother as I know my skin is pretty tough…
You can use this a couple of days after hair removal on areas that are prone to razor bumps and/or ingrowing hairs.
Or as I did a few days before hair removal as a preventative measure and to ensure your skin is super smooth and exfoliated. Exfoliated skin means brighter skin, which in turns looks more touchable…
Fine to use (after that recommended patch test) on legs, bikini line, underarms. Also OK for beards.
