6 Amazingly Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Ingrown Hairs

popular

Whether they pop up on your legs, underarms, or vajayjay, ingrown hairs are the devil. Just when we finally get a certain body part the way we want it, here comes an ingrown hair like, "Ayyyee, where the party at?" They not only show up at the most inconvenient times, but they refuse to go away easily. Their superpower tendency to survive even the craziest attempts to make them go away has created this child-like fascination with how to overpower them and come out on top.

No matter where the hair rears its head, we've all had moments where we can't rest until we yank, pluck, and pull it out once and for all; only for it to leave a scar before another one shows up even stronger. But we got you, sis. Before you go any further, check out the best ways to get rid of those ingrown hairs. (And no, you don't have to stop shaving!).

6 Ways To Get Rid Of Ingrown Hairs

The Ordinary

For starters, to properly get rid of ingrown hairs, it's helpful to know what they actually are. While we are fully aware that they're confined under the skin's surface (which makes them seem impossible to get rid of), the ingrown hair is created when dead skin cells interfere with hair follicles, so that's the real enemy.

Glycolic acid does wonders in getting rid of those dead skin cells that lead to ingrown hairs. It might be known as a lightweight acid, but it plays zero games when breaking down those skin cells and bringing them to the surface to not only make ingrown hairs easier to get rid of, but also to help stop inflammation in the area. Because clearly, it's seen enough problems. For those who have an extra pop of melanin, using glycolic acid on the regular can also help cover those hyperpigmentation marks that ingrown hairs seem desperate to leave behind.
