As summer comes hurtling toward us at record speed (seriously, where have the last few months gone?), we’re getting ourselves prepped for warmer climes. We’re slowly starting to pack away our cardigans and knits and pull out last year’s shorts and sleeveless tops to take their place. And it’s not just our wardrobes that are getting a summer overhaul. We’re turning our attention to our beauty routines too.
Special attention is being paid to the areas that we have spent the past few months neglecting. Our toes, for instance, are getting treated to at-home pedicures, and our limbs are finally getting the TLC and golden glow that they’ve been crying out for. However, while we’re overjoyed that the sun is finally showing its face, there is one issue that crops up around this time every year. As we adopt a more thorough hair-removal regimen, we face the very real issue of ingrown hairs. Red, bumpy and often sore, they crop up at times when they are least welcome.
Determined that this summer will be different, we’ve enlisted the help of Alexis Granite, consultant dermatologist at the Cadogan Clinic, to help us bust these unsightly pests for good.
