Here are 5 ways you could get rid of your ingrown hairs –

 

Laser hair removal treatment

Having a laser hair removal treatment will reduce the ingrown hairs as the treatment uses laser light pulses to destroy hair follicles. If you are dealing with hairs growing in areas you rather they don’t and ingrown hairs, you should consider having this treatment done. I have had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment and it is so worth it.

 

Exfoliate regularly

You should aim to exfoliate at least once a week. This will get rid of dead skin, excess oil and stop the skin from clogging. Dead skin cells clog the skin and this clogging can force hairs to grown sideways, which will lead to ingrown hairs. So exfoliating regularly will stop this from happening, as there won’t be a build up of dead skin cells.

 

Don’t squeeze

If you do find yourself dealing with ingrown hairs, make sure you don’t feel tempted to squeeze. That would only make it worse and it could lead to a bacteria infection. The best thing to do with ingrown hairs when you have them is to leave them alone. They usually disappear within a few days if left alone.

Use a hair removal cream

Using a hair removal cream can help prevent ingrown hairs. Shaving tends to trigger ingrown hairs the most when compared with other hair removal processes because the hair grows back with a sharper edge and easy to grow back into the skin when you shave.

 

Take care of your skin

Taking care of your skin prevents many skin problems including ingrown hairs. Using the right cleanser, makeup remover, body wash, moisturiser, and so on, helps your skin stay healthy. You should pay special attention to your skin after shaving, threading, waxing or after a hair removal treatment as usually the treated area is always sensitive after the hair removal process.

 

These are a few ways of dealing with ingrown hairs. They are best avoided but sometimes you may find a couple regardless of how careful you are. The only way to completely avoid ingrown hairs is to let the hairs be. Don’t shave, laser off, wax or thread. This isn’t possible for many of us to do, which is why we have to pick the best way to get rid of unwanted hairs and reduce the chances of dealing with ingrown hairs.

How does fat freezing treatment work

*Collaborative post.

I have had 2 fat freezing sessions in the past. The first fat freezing treatment was on my stomach and the second was on my face. Both treatments were a few years ago. After childbirth, I started dealing with some stubborn tummy fat and I was desperate to get rid of it. I also wanted like a mini face contour, which is why I had the second treatment shortly after having the first.

I got 2 opportunities to go into a beauty clinic for both treatments, and I grabbed the offers with both hands. It was a fantastic experience. I found both treatments non invasive and I was very pleased with the results. The first fat freezing treatment was about 45 minutes and I had no issues at all during or after the treatment. The second fat freezing treatment was about an hour and my experience was even better than the first. My skin tone was glowing and I was really happy with the results.

 

What is fat freezing?

For those who have never heard of this fat freezing treatment, it is a non invasive treatment which removes stubborn fat by safely freezing it away. It is now really popular thanks to the fact that it is non invasive, painless and really effective. This treatment does not require an anaesthetic, and you can go about with the rest of your day as normal after the treatment, which is makes it even better. I was pleased to hear needles won’t be involved and that the results will be natural looking, which was what I wanted.

 

My first fat freezing treatment

For my first treatment, it started off with a gel pad on the target area, and then the area was exposed to cold temperature. The therapist began to massaged the left and right sides of my stomach with ice cold air. It was freezing and my stomach went numb a few minutes into the treatment, but the numbness disappeared shortly after the treatment.

I noticed a difference immediately after the treatment. My stomach looked flatter and the difference was even more noticeable a few weeks after the treatment. I know I am definitely going to have the fat freezing treatment again. It is so worth it.

My second fat freezing treatment

For my second treatment, it started off with a face cleanse and a massage on my neck, shoulders and scalp. Then my face was sprayed with a cold air for about 6 minutes, and then massaged to stimulate blood flow. Finally, a moisturiser was applied to seal in the beauty goodness. My skin was glowing once the treatment was over. It is one beauty treatment I know I am going to have again. My facial skin thanked me for it and the whole experience was so amazing.

I definitely recommend the fat freezing treatment. You can have the treatment on your arms, buttocks, stomach, chin, upper arms, bra fat, back and thighs. The results are amazing and they are permanent; the fat cells do not grow back in the treated area and the best part is that the treatment isn’t painful.

What do you think of this treatment? Have you had it done before?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Envious About Full Lips? Here’s How They Do It

*Collaborative post.

There’s something very attractive about a set of full lips. No matter the shape of your face, a set of full lips can always complement your appearance to a great degree. That is especially true if you consult a good cosmetologist or doctor before opting for this procedure. There are surgical as well as non-surgical methods to achieve full lips. Plus, there are temporary and permanent lip fillers. The permanent option is using compounds that can last for about 10 years. Keep reading if you are envious about full lips.

Envious About Full Lips? Here’s How They Do It

The most commonly used method these days is an injectable dermal filler for lip augmentation. Many kinds of dermal fillers can be used in your lips. The most frequently used one in many procedures are products that have compounds like hyaluronic acid. This substance is a natural substance that occurs in the human body. It’s the least non-invasive and safest way to lip volume. Sometimes they are just known as hyaluronic acid fillers. Collagen was earlier used in many procedures but has now been replaced with safer and newer options. Some other options that are again not preferred as much are fat injections and implants. These two options have varying results and are also prone to causing unwanted side effects.

There are many form changes that can be brought about by using a hyaluronic acid filler. These additions can include an increase in structure, shape, volume and firmness. The effects of this filler typically last for five to six months. The time for how long these effects last may slightly vary depending on person to person. Based on the prognosis of your cosmetologist, you might need further sessions to keep the same appearance that you got after the first procedure. Some of the more common hyaluronic acid fillers include Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Belotero Balance and others. It is best to check with your doctor about which product would suit you the best. Some of these products may also contain a local anaesthetic that would lessen the pain of the injection itself.

Post Procedure

After the injection procedure is done, the tissues of the lips are supported and shaped by the gel in the filler. Let’s look at the benefits of using such fillers. Based on how thin your lips are or how thick or voluminous your doctor decides is best for your face shape, only that amount of the filler is injected. That consequently gives you the lip volume you need. Some people might not be comfortable with a single full-length session. For them, the procedure can be scheduled over multiple sessions. Over time, the desired results can be achieved. Any bumps created during the procedure are easily ironed out by the natural movement of the lips. Fillers using hyaluronic fillers cause less bruising than other fillers. As mentioned earlier, the results last for 4-6 months, depending on the physiology of the body.

 

Finally

Using fillers of this kind rarely cause any allergic reaction. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, there are very few chances of any allergy developing in anyone. However, you should always check with your doctor if you are allergic to local anaesthesia used in these products.
