Hello Beautiful. It’s summertime and that means we all go that extra mile to be hair-free and bikini ready but with all the extra shaving and waxing comes some skin complications. In this article, we explore the main after hair removal unwanted side effects and the best products on the market to cure these problems quickly or even avoid them all together! So let’s get started.
Always an issue for myself and so many other women. To prevent dry skin from hair removal you need to use the right products before, during and after hair removal.
Dry skin mostly happens after shaving. This is why it is so important to use a really good shave cream during and a good moisturizer after. Our favorite picks;

Nicks and Cuts
Unfortunately accidents happen. Should you nick yourself with your razor it is important to clean the wound and apply a salve to help it heal quickly. SkinSmart Antimicrobial Wound Therapy is a wonderful spray to clean and disinfect little scrapes and nicks.
Follow up with Neosporin Maximum-Strength Pain Relief Dual Action Ointment to promote fast healing.
Sharp Hair Regrowth
Do you find that the more you shave or wax the sharper your hair seems to grow back.
Dull razors are the number one cause of sharp scratchy hair regrowth so pay attention to when your blades are getting old. It’s better to swap your razor blades often than to deal with itchy regrowth.
Another way to ensure your hair grows back soft and subtle is to keep the areas you shave moisturized.
Especially the bikini area which is where this next, now very famous product comes in:-
I did say we love Fur products! Not only are they Vegan, Gluten Free and Cruelty Free but they really work and well if they are good enough for Emma Watson to rave about all the time isn’t it about time you tried them too?

Fur Oil is also great for legs, underarms, chest, beard, and anywhere hair meets skin.
Dermatologically and gynecologically tested. Its pricey but fear not the bottle lasts approximately 6 months.
Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps
The most painful and annoying side effect of shaving or waxing too much is Ingrown hairs. Ouch!
They can really hurt and get infected. Ingrown hairs normally occur when we shave too close and nick the top of the hair follicle. This causes it to become partially obstructed which in turn forces the hair inside to grow at an angle. Sometimes these hairs pierces the side of the follicle and buries themselves inside the skin. The skin reacts by becoming inflamed, appearing as tiny painful red bumps, spots or razor burns.
Ingrown hair can also occur when an individual hair grows straight up out of a follicle, then curls back down and reenters the follicle. Most ingrown hairs straighten out within a week or two but left to persist can become infected, very painful and possibly cause permanent scarring.
We have two recommendations the first product being more prevention based the second is emergency S.O.S.
Tip: Whatever you do if you have an ingrown hair or razor bumps do not scratch or pick at it!
