  • Men’s and Women’s Shaving Needs

    Just about every single man or woman out there struggles with shaving related issues from time to time. While men and women’s shaving needs may be completely different, the skin issues we face are generally the same. Whether it be dreaded razor burn or ingrown hairs, SkinDirect’s esthetician recommends products that will help banish shaving related irritation.

    Whish Flawless Ingrown Hair Serum is made especially for a woman’s delicate skin. With willow bark, wheat germ and yeast extracts, this serum provides fast relief from the pain and itching associated with ingrown hairs. It also helps to inhibit the performance of the hair follicles themselves and prevents unsightly re-growth. Because less shaving means less opportunity for irritation, it’s a win-win situation!

    Murad Razor Burn Rescue, infused with glycolic acid, tea tree oil, and powerful moisturizers, is another highly recommended product. With powerful redness relieving anti-inflammatory ingredients, this cream is a great way to reduce those pesky red bumps in both men and women while soothing itchiness and hydrating the skin.

    Anthony for Men Ingrown Hair Treatment, the top selection for men by SkinDirect’s knowledgeable esthetician, helps loosen hairs trapped under the skin almost instantly. With ingredients like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lavender, and phytic acid, this is a one-stop after shave product for men. It provides gentle relief of redness and irritation, detoxifies the skin, removes rough patches, and leaves behind perfect and touchable skin.

    Here at SkinDirect, we believe that both men and women deserve to put their best face (or legs!) forward. These products are designed to help you do just that, and feel good about it in the process!

  • Hair Removal Options

    Shaving, waxing, plucking, creams, lasers, and just about anything can rid our legs, arms, face, and underarms from unwanted hair. Some are more painful than others and some more expensive than others, so which one is best for you?

    Shaving– This might be the quickest and simplest way to remove hair but not the least painful. It can result in cuts, nicks, and burns that lasts for days. If you don’t have time for other hair removal techniques, choose a razor with the least abrasiveness. Many companies are developing razors with soft bars of body wash and lotions around the razor. This protects your skin from the friction of a razor if it’s not properly hydrated and reduces the occurrence of burns or cuts.

    Waxing – This technique already sounds painful! But it is very effective when done correctly with results lasting a few days or up to a week. Choose the type of wax that is right for your skin type and won’t irritate you. Make sure your hair is at least a quarter inch long or else it won’t work. After spreading the wax and placing the strip, wait a few seconds and then pull the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Some companies make pre-waxed strips that you heat up in your hand, so decide which kind is best for your skin before buying it.

    Hair Removal Creams– Depilatory creams work by dissolving the top layer of your hair. They can be kind of messy and have a funky smell but they won’t leave you with cuts or nicks, and when removed properly, there will be little to no irritation. They take a little longer, though, because of the amount time you have to leave them on your skin. It’s also very important to test out a small patch of hair before doing an entire region to make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients.

    Laser Hair Removal– When you finally get tired of removing that unwanted hair almost every day, it might be time to consider laser hair removal. Unlike all the other methods, laser hair removal is permanent and reduces or eliminates hair anywhere on the body except for the eye area. The low-energy laser penetrates your skin and inactivates the hair follicles in that region, permanently stopping hair growth! It takes more than one session per region so talk with a dermatologist to see if laser hair removal is right for you
