What to do for ingrowing hairs?

I must be really prone to these as I've had ingrowing hairs for years, but they seem to be getting worse. I get them on my legs and bikini line regardless of what form of hair removal I use (waxing, shaving, epilation). I manually exfoliate by body brushing daily and using a body puff in the shower. Is there anything else I can try - any body lotions which contain a chemical exfoliant which would help?

I need to do something because I've taken to squeezing them out with tweezers which is leaving ugly red scars on my legs.....

Help oh wise ones of the S&B please!

Tend Skin. No idea how to do a link but google it - brilliant stuff and then I'd also recommend dove pro age body lotion that has an aha in it. Xx

If you have the budget and the right hair/skin type, laser hair removal. The hair can't ingrow if it isn't there.

I use a peeling. It will keep your skin smooth and get the hair out of the skin

Tend Skin, it is great. The only thing I've tried that worked - and it started to work very quickly
