Does anyone have suggestions for how to get rid of the red / inflamed follicles after a treatment? It’s been about 5 days and it’s going away slowly but I would like to try to speed it up if possible. I am afraid of putting anything on that will cause acne, though - so I haven’t used much aside from aveda’s all sensitive cleanser.
I used tendskin in the past and it was not helpful… it just burned. I think “Min Solution 2” is popular with people for razor burn/razor bumps, but by the time I order it & it is delivered, the problem will probably be gone. I don’t think it is sold in stores. I have an aloe gel from aveda but I’m not sure if it would make things worse or if it has enough active aloe (whole foods sells some lotions with active aloe I can get if it’ll work…most drugstore products with aloe are not that useful).
Oh, also - I have a back facial scheduled for Wednesday to get rid of the ingrown hairs and generally smooth out the whole area. Is this ok to do? I think she will be exfoliating, among other various treatments… Should I tell her specifically not trying to pluck out active hairs unless they seem ingrown?
