If you’ve been waxing for a while, you’ll know that ingrown hairs can be a frustrating and sometimes painful side effect of hair removal. Ironically, ingrown hairs are a positive sign as it means the hairs themselves are becoming weaker and therefore less able to push through the surface of the skin. Once trapped they can become red, inflamed and irritated. This is particularly the case if you are prone to more oily skin generally.
So what’s the solution? A preventative daily body scrub that stops ingrown hairs forming in the first place!
Ruff Stuff Daily Body Scrub is a 100% natural body scrub designed by a beauty therapist specifically to deal with issues around waxing. It contains sugar, coconut oil, olive oil and peppermint essence – and nothing else!
I’ve been asking some of my clients to trial Ruff Stuff and I’ve seen some amazing transformations, particularly on the bikini area.
This product can also be used as a regular body scrub, before self or spray tans, or on holiday as it won’t make your skin more photosensitive.
Directions for use: Apply a small amount to damp skin working it in using circular motions for 5 to 10 seconds in the shower. Ideally it’s the last thing you do before stepping out of the shadow so a film of coconut oil will be left on the skin to protect it during the day.
Tubs are £9 for a huge 250ml and can be purchased at the salon.
