If you're prone to ingrown hairs, you know how unattractive and inconvenient they can be. And common.
Enter Haven Spa's new "Peach Smoothie" treatment. It's like a bikini facial, and comes complete with delicate cleansing, an AHA scrub, acid peel, and steam/extractions.
Skeptical? So was I— until I tried it, that is. My skin was left smooth, clear and ready for a late summer holiday.
The Treatment: Peach Smoothie
Who to See: Ludmila Eskobare
Cost: $50 for 15-30 mins.
Can't get to Haven Spa? No worries. Just follow Ludmila's at-home regime:
Exfoliate, Two Ways
Prevent post-waxing/shaving bumps by exfoliating the area for a week, 3 days post-treatment. Alternate daily between an oil-free scrub (Haven uses Plum Bamboo Body Scrub, $26), and a dry brush or glove.
Treat the Area
To keep ingrowns at bay, Ludmila suggests using Prince Reign Ingrown Hair Serum ($26) twice daily, between waxings/shaves. This effective, all-natural formulation works to heal, prevent ingrowns and treat the skin, without clogging pores.
