How do you prevent ingrown facial hair?
Not only is an ingrown hair painful, it also damages your attempts at a blemish-free face. An ingrown hair occurs when hair is cut too close to the follicle, and the hair begins to grow into the tissue or curls back into the tissue instead of exiting the dermis. Pluck or shave facial hair after you shower. Let your hair soak up water to allow it to cut or pluck more easily. Your face should be wet for at least 5 minutes before shaving and plucking. This helps remove your hair smoothly and prevents the hair from being removed too close to the follicle. Shave or pluck in the direction your hair grows to avoid ingrown facial hair. Also, draw your razor only once across each area of your face, keeping your skin somewhat loose rather than pulling it taut. Use a laser treatment or electrolysis to permanently remove the hair follicle. Most permanent hair removal techniques require a few treatments before the hair follicle is destroyed and the hair removal remains permanent. Apply herbal remed
