A Love Letter to Our Skincare Saviour, AHA Ingrown Hair Serum

April 19, 2022

Ok, so lately we’ve been feeling like there’s a certain skincare product flyingwayunder the radar. It exfoliates the skin, reduces redness, treats discolouration, improves skin texture,andis chock full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Any guesses? It’s ourAHA Ingrown Hair Serum. You may never have even heard of an ingrown serum before, but we’re here to show you why it’s the one skincare product you didn’t know you needed. Great for those who wax or shave regularly, as well as anyone fighting discolouration, redness, or other concerns down south, this serum is literally our skin saviour.  

What are AHAs & PHAs? 

Meet the superstar ingredients in our Ingrown Serum, AHAs and PHAs: 

  • AHAs:AHA, which stands for alpha-hydroxy acids, are acid exfoliants that include glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, and tartaric acid. Most AHAs offer similar benefits, with their main claim to fame being their ability to hydrate and exfoliate the skin and stimulate collagen production. 
  • PHAs:While AHAs are nothing new in skincare, PHAs, or poly-hydroxy acids have only recently started making waves. PHAs are part of the AHA family, however, their molecules aremuchlarger in size compared to their alpha sisters. Thus, while their skincare benefits are similar to that of AHAs, they are even gentler, which makes them ideal for sensitive skin. 

The Benefits of AHAs & PHAs 

  • Hydration:Many AHAs are humectants, which means they attract and retain water, providing a major dose of hydration to the skin. 
  • Gentle, Non-Irritating:As mentioned above, PHAs are incredibly gentle, but their AHA sisters aren’t slouching in this department either. Both contain large molecules, which means it takes them longer to be absorbed into the skin. This translates to more time on the skin’s surface, which is why they’re considered to be non-irritating.  
  • Exfoliating:Both AHAs and PHAs are master exfoliators. They are both surface exfoliants that work to slough off dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth, radiant skin. 
  • Anti-Inflammatory:PHAs in particular are packed with anti-inflammatory properties, helping calm and soothe the skin. This makes them great at fighting redness and other inflammation that comes with acne or ingrown hairs. 
  • Stimulates Collagen Production:AHAs have the ability to stimulate collagen production, which as we all know is one of the best ways of combating signs of aging. Keep your skin plump and free of wrinkles. 

Why We Love Our AHA Ingrown Hair Serum 

Now that you know a little more about AHAs and PHAs, it’s probably starting to become clear why the Ingrown Serum is a no-brainer for us. But in case you’re still not convinced, here are a few other reasons we love this hero product:  

  • Natural Ingredients:The AHA/PHA Ingrown Serum is made entirely from natural ingredients. In this serum, you’ll findarnica, witch hazel, aloe, and one of our personal favs, hamamelis virginiana leaf extract. It’s also 100% paraben and dye-free. 
  • Versatile:  We love a 2-in-1 product, and our AHA/PHA Ingrown Serum is really a 5-in-1 product. It simultaneously exfoliates the skin, treats discolouration, prevents and heals ingrown hairs, hydrates the skin, and improves overall skin texture. 
  • Great for all skin types:AHAs and PHAs (but especially the latter) areextremelygentle. Unlike harsh physical scrubs, these acids exfoliate on a chemical level, which is much gentler on the skin. For this reason, our Ingrown Serum is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.  

As you can see, we’re just a teensy bit obsessed with ourAHA Ingrown Hair Serum. But don’t take our word for it. I mean, there’s a reason it’s our #1 seller both online and in stores. Our customers just can’t get enough of it. With summer soon underway, now’s the time to try it out for yourself (trust us, give it a week and you’ll be hooked forever)! Say goodbye to ingrown hairs and hello to an even, hydrated bikini line.
