Everything You Need to Know About Folliculitis and Ingrown Hairs—and the Best Tips to Beat Them for Good!

Tips for Smooth, Inflammation-Free Skin

The razor is our magic wand when we need to shave comfortably, well, and quickly. But this doesn't mean forgetting to do it correctly and without taking care of our skin.

If you've noticed red dots appearing on your skin after shaving, especially in areas like the groin and legs, no, it's not you. The problem might be folliculitis. Today, we'll talk about it and reveal a few tricks to understand and prevent it.

What is Folliculitis?

Folliculitis is the result of the infection of hair follicles, the tiny sacs in the skin where hair grows. Bacteria, fungi, and viruses that settle in the bulb cause redness and swelling.

Why does it occur? It happens when the natural balance of the skin is disrupted, and pathogenic microorganisms attack the follicle. This is especially common after shaving, which is why it's necessary to treat the skin with care and specific products. Indeed, lack of exfoliation before shaving, a too aggressive hair removal method, an unsuitable razor, and lack of post-treatment hydration are the main causes of the problem. Not surprisingly, folliculitis can appear in any area of the body that is subject to hair removal.

 

What Are Ingrown Hairs?

Folliculitis is often associated with ingrown hairs, which are hairs that fail to emerge from the skin and find very creative ways to curl back inside, causing inflammation, redness, and even infections.

Ingrown hairs, as we were saying, are inventive and do not discriminate based on the hair removal method: they can form after shaving, waxing, and using an electric epilator, because all these methods can cause the hair shaft to break or the hair tip to thin.

 

 

 

 

But all is not lost.

Here are 4 tips for you to prepare your skin in the best possible way and to pamper it before and after shaving.

 

Steps for a Shave That Prevents Folliculitis:

1. Exfoliate Your Skin Before Shaving

Exfoliating is crucial because it helps remove sebum and dead skin cells that could clog the follicle, causing infection. How to do it? Use the exfoliating mitt from our Hoily Drops anti-irritation kit. Just use it on wet skin to gently exfoliate and prepare for the next steps.

 

 

2. Soften the Skin and Use a Mousse

First, wet the skin with warm water to soften it and open the pores. Then, apply your favorite shaving foam to make the area softer and ready for friction-free shaving. Haven't found your favorite foam yet? You must try Foamtastic, available in Coconut or Amber versions.

 

 

3. Choose Your Razor Wisely

Not all razors are good razors, so choosing the right one is essential. If you're still using a disposable razor way past its life span, it's time to reconsider. A disposable means just that—after a few uses, it's time to dispose of it, not just for hygienic reasons but because the blades become as effective as a plastic knife.

Consider the Fler razor with its five Swedish stainless steel blades, lubricating ring, and a durable aluminum handle with an interchangeable head. With this, you'll achieve smooth, irritation-free skin. And, if you subscribe, you'll get replacements delivered to your door when needed. 

 

 

4. Hydrate and Nourish Your Skin

Hydration and nourishment are essential post-shave steps that should never be skipped. 


Our concentrated Hoily Drops oil offers a blend of natural oils like Tea Tree, Tamanu, Bisabolol, and Coconut oil, which accelerate skin healing and provide antibacterial, antioxidant, antimicrobial, soothing, and nourishing benefits. This helps prevent ingrown hairs and folliculitis. Apply a few drops on dry skin for a non-greasy finish.

For those who dislike the sticky feel of moisturizers, our Slow It Down lotion is your savior. It absorbs quickly, calms skin irritations, delays hair regrowth, and hydrates deeply with its natural and vegan ingredients, allowing you to seize the day without waiting for your skin to dry.

With these allies, your razor remains a magical tool for quick, comfortable, and effective shaving.
