Q&A Dear Danielle, I HAVE [...].
Q&A Dear Danielle, I HAVE recently noticed ingrowing hairs on my skin after shaving. They look dreadful and can be painful. Is there any way I can prevent getting them? CHARLOTTE, 21, EPPING, ESSEX Danielle says, Ingrowing hairs is a common problem and can be a nightmare. However, you will be pleased to know they can be prevented.
Exfoliating is important as it removes the first layer of dead skin and allows the hair to surface.
Boots has created a great antidote, Smooth Care Ingrowing Hair Minimiser (pounds 8.99, www.boots.com). Applying it twice daily will reduce the appearance of ingrowing hairs and can prevent their return.
