Sure, hair gets a lot of hate, especially in my industry. But we gotta have it, even if for briefly, in order to yank 'er out. But as with hair in other places on our body the skin health influences hair health. For those who choose to leave something or nil, it's nice to know we are being kind to the areas we most adore vs. slathering on acids, alchohols, and grinding away with exfoliants & scrubs. What did our vulva ever do to us? Except for deliver us sensations, pleasure, and the human race!
I've always been a big advocate for coconut oil, along with the rest of the beauty world. I use it in nearly all my waxing services, before, after and during. I was finding it much more soothing and at times yielding better results than the Tend Skin, Follique, or Finipil I would carry. Speaking of Carey, she shared that many of her guests experienced great results with coconut oil and tea tree. This then gave way to her sharing about Fur Oil. Not only that but of course she had the ingredients on hand to dupe me an alternative. What I discovered over the next 8 weeks was that I really liked oiling up! My ingrowns were minimal, and my skin soothed. That said, while oil can serve with antiseptic properties, moisturize, soften, loosen - I still had to buff with the washcloth a bit for some exfoliation.
The next time I was placing an order for work I discovered Fur Oil was available to me. It sells itself for the above reasons! Not to mention the pretty packaging. I also gave way to the Ingrown Concentrate as well. It comes with a little finger buff, it's gentle exfoliation at it's best. It's ingredients are a bit more anti-inflammatory & perhaps purging with some castor oil in there.
While one could concoct their very own, the swell thing about the prepackaged oils is that they are indeed dermatologically and gynecologically tested. Emma Watson shared this as one of her favorite all-purpose products and it's easy to see why.
I've even been using it for irritated areas around on my face (is it dermatitis? perioral? seborrheic? rosacea? cold wintry dry weather?) What's the adage? What's good for the labia is good for the nasolabial fold!?
