Hi beautiful people of the wet shaving world !

Recently, a tip concerning ingrown hairs (after a shave) was given to me. I tried it for a couple of months and I can now tell you that it's simply the best solution to razor bumps.

If you're prone to ingrowns like I was, then you should exfoliate your skin with exfoliating scrub or cream 12 hours after your shave. It'll help your facial hair to pass over the skin and grow normally instead off inside the skin. Haven't got any bumps since I use a facial scrub !

Just putting it out there !

That is all !

It really works wonders. For me at least!

If like me you shave every other day, 12 hours might be a little early for the exfoliating scrub. If you shave everyday, then go for 12 hours after your shave.

What I do is the day after my shave, when I can feel just a tad of hair growth, I use the scrub. And there's a huge difference between the ''before'' and the ''after''. When I'm done washing of the scrub, I can feel all of my whiskers, kinda like coarse sandpaper. And before, I could feel a bit of hair growth, but also some tiny little bumps.

I've been using this timing method of exfoliation for several months now. I shave every other day and use the exfoliation pad below 24 hrs. after a shave. Like you say, it really makes the whiskers stand up and away from the skin. I usually use it in the shower but I recently learned for a more exfoliating effect to use it dry.

This is a great tip.  Looking forward to seeing if this actually works.

When I travel, I'm stuck to goo in a can and a cart.  ALWAYS get bumps from that.  

Thanks!

I tend to exfoliate before and then the day after and it really helped me.

can you wash and reuse the pads?

have they caused any discomfort for you?  my skin is VERY dry and sensitive and I'm prone to ingrowns..I might give them a try.

I use one of these...
[Image: vgp-2011-redndering-1.jpg]
Vitagoods Spin Brush

Every night I use the Grey (Exfoliating) Brush, and the White (Soft Bristle) Brush.  Ever since I've been doing this I have not had a single ingrown hair at all.  It's been working really well for me so far.  Been doing it since Christmas when I got the brush.

If you go see Aaron Marino's youtube video about it, you can get it for 30 bucks.  Great deal.

Yes, there are reusable and won't form mold, etc.  I've been using the same one for about 4 months now.  Very sturdy and you can control the degree that you exfoliate.

There's something here about the exfoliation. One of the reasons I got into the DE shaving was the ingrown hairs from using the carts. Since using a shaving brush to massage/exfoliate my skin in my daily shave, I haven't had any problems at all. My skin is so much better. Plus by reading thru the techniques of the others here, I also use moisturizers after my shave too. I'll check the facial sponge out-I appreciate the tip!

Holy cow.  That thought had not crossed my mind.  Any suggestions of exfoliants (sp?) for sensitive skin?  One of the reason that I get such bad ingrowns (especially on my neck) is due to having sensitive skin and CRAZY hair growth patterns. I have typically gone through with a needle to "unearth" the ingrowns every couple of days.  Not fun.
