How to Have Clear Skin | Six Simple Skincare Tips
People often ask Alpha about his video topic inspirations. Aaron Marino of alpha m. displays his eyebrow bump-- his inspiration! He's now talking about how to treat ingrown hairs.

Is the swollen bump a pimple or an ingrown hair? A pimple is a clogged and infected pore. An ingrown hair doesn't pop through the skin but still grows and becomes infected. If you shave and get a bump, chances are it's an ingrown hair. Alpha constantly has ingrown hair because he shaves so much. He's grown accustomed to it. To prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate. Hairs will have a better ability to break through the surface.

Ingrown Hair Treatment

  1. Apply a hot compress - wet a washcloth and microwave for 15 seconds. Hold for a few minutes to open the pores. The infection comes to the surface.
  2. Exfoliation - gently exfoliate to stimulate the follicle. Use a soft bristled toothbrush or exfoliating brush for about 2 minutes
  3. Sterilize a needle or pin in alcohol. Get the needle under the skin and break the hair to the surface. Wipe the skin with alcohol.
