In terms of harmless but aggravating beauty annoyances that most women have to deal with on a regular basis, ingrowns, after breakouts, are pretty much on top. I have yet to find a magical cure, but regular exfoliation does help as do soothing products like Shaveworks‘ The Cool Fix Targeted Gel Lotion. In fact if you don’t need “heavy” exfoliation, this product can work as your exfoliator too. It has a cooling/tingly sensation so it will soothe bumps while helping to get rid of dead skin cells thereby releasing trapped hairs (glycolic, salicylic, and phytic acids are also in the formulation to kill bacteria). Also worth noting is that the packaging is pretty nice – a rarity for such a product- so it’s not really that “embarrassing” if someone sees it in your shower. Shaveworks The Cool Fix available at Sephora for $11 (2 oz) or $25 (5.3 oz).
