A Natural Solution for Gorgeous Summer Skin: Stop Ingrown Hairs!


Do you get ingrown hairs from shaving and waxing? I definitely do, and it sucks. It’s not pretty, and even worse for me, it tends to scar my fair skin, leaving a mark long after the ingrown hair is gone. Like may things in life, getting rid of ingrowns is all about prevention. Shopha’s Ingrown Relief Lotion is specifically made to exfoliate top layers of dead skin (which is what traps hairs to become ingrown in the first place.

And the stuff doesn’t contain nasty toxic chems: it’s free of parabens, color and artificial fragrance (basically it’s glycolic acid and a bunch of natural oils), and it’s safe for face, bikini, legs, and underarms.

For daily use: use immediately after shaving to moisturize the skin while soothing irritation and razor burn; begin using 48 hours after waxing/sugaring to prevent and treat ingrown hairs. I’ve been using it for a few days now and no new ingrown hairs! Pretty sweet. And if you’d like to try it, we’ve got a coupon for you!
