Below are 3 Facial Complications and solution(s) on how to get rid of it:
- In grow Hair
How they happen: The culprit is shaving and waxing. Shaving cuts hairs to a sharp point. When it starts to grow in, the hair shaft pierces the skin surrounding the follicle, Baumann explains. In other cases, it curls and grows back into the skin rather than breaking through it.
As with acne, bacteria can infect it, causing soreness, redness and pus.
Skin solutions: Put down the tweezers.
“You don’t want to go digging around – you can get scars,” Baumann says. Instead, slough off the top layer of skin to free trapped hair. Here’s how:
- First, wet a washcloth in hot water, wring it out and apply the warm compress to the ingrown hair. This softens the skin so the hair can work its way through it.
- If that doesn’t work, gently exfoliate the area with a soft loofah while showering or apply a chemical exfoliator, such as alpha hydroxy acid or salicylic acid, twice a day, Shamban suggests.
- If the area is inflamed and has pus, dab on benzoyl peroxide to kill the bacteria, just as you would with a pimple.In grow Hair:
In the future, nix the razor and get laser hair removal treatments, such as with the Alexandrite laser, which removes unwanted hair in about two to three sessions and is less likely to cause ingrown hairs.
However, not everyone is a candidate for laser hair removal, so consult with a qualified doctor before you do it.

In most cases, the glands become irritated somehow and simply begin to produce too much oil, which results in a saturation of the gland. This excess oil traps bacteria normally found on the skin and causes the infection and the resulting pus production. This is what causes the actual raised area on the skin.
- Lemon: Using a clean, sterile cotton swab, apply the lemon juice to the affected areas prior to bedtime.
For more stubborn pimples, create a paste of lemon juice and cinnamon powder and dab onto pimples for all night treatment. This will help get rid of pimples quickly, but is not recommended for people with sensitive skin.
- Toothpaste: Dab some white toothpaste to the affected areas of the skin before bed and leave overnight, rinsing with cool water in the morning.
If you aren’t going anywhere, you can repeat the process during the day, making sure to leave the toothpaste in contact with the pimples for at least thirty minutes to be effective.
- Honey: First, use a clean, sterile cotton tipped application and dab the honey directly onto the skin blemishes, leaving it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Additionally, you can create a paste with cinnamon powder similar to that of the lemon juice and allow the mixture to remain in contact with the pimples overnight before rinsing.
The cause of acne is hard to pinpoint because acne is not caused by just one factor. It occurs in different people for many different reasons. This makes finding an effective acne treatment tricky for a lot of people.
Acne treatment may be as simple as changing what you are exposing your skin to, or changing your skin cleanser to one without oil. It is always a good idea to check with your dermatologist before trying any system to get rid of your acne. Thanks for reading.
