There are a few Aesthetician that follow me, and I just want to know… How many of you wax?
I also want to know, if a client comes to you complaining about ingrown hairs, how many of you recommend a salt scrub of any kind?
Now I want to know, do you have any idea what a salt scrub will do to your skin?!
The place where people get ingrown hairs the most is in the groin area, yes?
I just had a recent client who left his old waxing specialist and decided to come to me because she made him break out in sores and ingrown hairs. I realize that pubic hair grows thicker and curlier than normal hair which is why ingrowns happen. But you recommend a salt scrub for that type of sensitive area?!
NO! NO! NO! Man or woman the pubic region is a very sensitive tissue, almost as much as your face. WHY would you use a salt scrub on that area?
The answer to ingrown hairs is simple, costs less than 95 cents a box and you likely have several boxes in your pantry. That’s right ladies and gentlemen I am talking about Baking Soda.
Baking soda is chemically balanced to the skin when mixed with water, it is also of a finer grit and not nearly as porous as salt, meaning less irritation and more soothing exfoliation. This miracle powder helps to gently slough off dead skin and to open the pores so that hairs don’t get trapped and can grow out without causing any further problems such as micro lesions which allow for bacteria to breed in your skin and create pimples which can develop into cysts.
Please my fellow professionals, do not recommend salt scrub for exfoliation in sensitive areas… it will only make matters worse….
