This problem occurs often when the procedure for removing unwanted hair was not carried out according to the rules. Of course, there is nothing terrible in this phenomenon, but there are unpleasant sensations( itching, burning) and aesthetics suffer( there are pustules, pink cones).All these troubles are easiest to prevent. This problem is most affected by the bikini zone, since it is there that the toughest hair grows, which is most difficult to "pierce the road," and they seem to get stuck under the skin.

- hair is best not shaved by an ordinary blade machine, but to do shugaring or even use a depilator;
- to the epilation procedure should be prepared: take a shower, it will slightly ripen the skin and make the process of getting rid of hair less painful;
- periodically need to exfoliate the skin with the help of scrubs and peelings;
