The quest for perfect skin has gone to a new frontier with the rising popularity of “vajacials”.  By vajacials we are referring to a revitalizing, skin conditioning treatment for the bikini line. For the well-maintained modern woman the latest trend involves beautifying your vagina with a 30 minute 'facial'.

With laser hair removal completely leaving you bare down there and Brazilian waxes leaving you looking like a plucked chicken, conditioning the skin is essential to leave you looking as smooth as a peach. As crazy as it sounds the vajacial is actually a great way to treat in growing hairs which can be a common issue for many women after hair removal.

The area gets steamed, plucked, cleansed, moisturised and covered in an enzyme exfoliating mask.

For the more mature women the latest craze in Holly wood is adding IPL or laser rejuvenation to the mix to plump up and rejuvenate the skin to take years off your vulva!

For those of you that may be a tad shy to bare all to a complete stranger to be buffed, soothed and polished try these top tips to treat ingrown hairs and keep the skin down there silky smooth.

  1. Apply Skinstitut 14% Glycolic Scrub (which contains tea tree oil) to the bikini area and leave for a few minutes to allow for a more intense anti-microbial exfoliation.
  2. Gently work the scrub over the area to loosen any dead skin cells. Hairs that get trapped under the skin can grow back on themselves and if left untreated can become red, swollen and even infected. 
  3. Rinse off in the shower or bath to remove any residue of products.
  4. Check for any stray hairs that may be gently plucked from the area.
  5. Apply a soothing, anti -inflammatory cooling gel to calm the area and reduce redness and bumps that can often occur around the hair follicle. Try Skinstitut Laser Aid.
  6. For severe ingrown hairs, a leave on night treatment can be used to soften the skin and gently remove dead skin cells whilst smoothing and soothing the area. Try Skinstitut Enzymatic Micro peel.

So there we have it, follow these simple steps every other day for an at home treatment that will leave you soft and silky smooth.
