Are you sick and tired of breaking out into a rash whenever you have a shave? Do you want to make sure that ingrown hairs and spots do not develop when your trimmed hair is ready to reappear? We have the perfect solution to all your problems.
Its characteristics and application method are presented below.
The solution to your problems is called salicylic acid
For those who don’t know how an ingrown hair forms, here is a brief overview of the process: Trimmed hair curls back on itself inside the skin instead of growing up and out as you would normally expect. That’s why the hair remains inside indefinitely.
Ingrown hairs and spots may also develop whenever a thick and strong hair tries to break through the skin, which often causes infection and swelling in the area.
In both cases, one of the primary causes of these skin conditions is shaving, whether a normal blade or an electric razor is used, coupled with a failure to exfoliate regularly, which would promote the normal growth of hair.
In view of the above, one of the best ingredients to prevent and treat these unruly hairs is salicylic acid. Not only does it treat acne, but it also helps to reduce the swelling of ingrown hairs and to renovate skin cells via gentle exfoliation so that pores can open and hairs have the space they need to grow properly.
The male cosmetics industry has developed at breakneck speed and now offers a wide range of facial skincare products for men. But, like everything else, you’ve got to know what is best for your skin.
To deal with the kinds of skin conditions indicated above, you should select particular and specialised treatments.
Folisan Man and Folibeard are salicylic acid-based products. They are recommended as an after-shave treatment or following a man’s hair removal procedure carried out by Barbepil. They prevent and treat the ingrown hair as well as any infection and inflammation of the follicles so that the new hair can grow correctly.
The keratolytic action of the salicylic acid enables the uppermost layer of the epidermis to be exfoliated and any bacteria which cause the infection to be disinfected and sterilised.
They also have anti-inflammatory, regenerative and calming properties to reduce irritation.
They are available either as a roll-on or in the form of a liquid texture and must always be applied after shaving and on a regular basis to the worst affected areas to ensure the success of the treatment.
You can finally say goodbye to those pesky hairs that have been such a pain in the neck and say hello to your new best friend: salicylic acid.
