The Dos and Don'ts of At-Home Waxing
You must read this hair removal guide before attempting to wax yourself
DON'T: Pick at ingrown hairsAlthough it's tempting, picking at ingrowns won't help, and it may lead to infection. If you have a stubborn ingrown, soak in warm water to soften the skin, gently exfoliate the area and apply a salicylic acid treatment (like Queen Bee Waxing Buzz Off Bumps, $24 or Hair Care Down There Skin Fix, $15) to help further exfoliate the area.
If you really must pick, only use sterilized tweezers and only do it to ingrowns that are right at the surface of the skin. -- Jody Shays, Queen Bee Waxing
