Tend Skin Solution
Look & Feel:
Ingrown hair is a constant problem that has to do with both physical attractiveness and tactile sensation on the skin. It is such an annoying part of the hair removal process that we’ve almost given up on removing them completely. Tend Skin promises to change that.
The main mechanism of the product works by gently exfoliating the skin, thereby removing excess sebum and dead skin cells that can clog up pores and cause ingrown hairs.
Other ingredients in the solution are meant to improve the condition of your skin by reducing redness and post-wax skin bumps. The results of using Tend Skin Care Solution may vary based on the depth of existing ingrown hairs.
Some can use it for as long as two weeks and see immediate results, while others have to wait a little longer if they’ve had issues with ingrown hair before waxing and shaving.
Another good thing about the product is that the company also says that it is cruelty-free, which means that no animals were used in testing the product. This Tend Skin review will cover all the ins and outs of the products and my verdict on whether or not you should use it.
Ingrown Hair Removal
It can be used as a treatment to remove ingrown hair by gently removing the dead skin cells over the parts that have been waxed, shaved, or have gone through other hair removal processes.
Ingrown Hair Prevention
The cocktail of ingredients are also designed to prevent the occurrence of ingrown hair in the future. By using a liquid exfoliant like Tend Skin, ingrown hairs are less likely to appear because the follicles are exfoliated before and after hair removal.
One other use for Tend Skin is redness and razor burn reduction. The anti-inflammatory effects of the product help you achieve healthier skin especially after harsh and aggressive hair removal treatments.
The exfoliation effect of Tend Skin helps renew the skin, but requires moisturization due to its drying effect.
Pros & cons
Tend Skin Solution does what it promises and more. Ingrown hairs will disappear as quickly as two of three days. Using it after hair removal sessions also prevents ingrown hairs from reappearing. It works well even with ingrown hair problems that have been a constant issue for years.
With a product that is this effective, there really are some consequences that cannot be avoided. A lot of people complain that it smells really strong and that it feels like pure alcohol. It is also a bit inconvenient to have to choose a moisturizer like Tend Skin Lotion to go with the product, especially since moisturizers should not be used after waxing, electrolysis, and laser hair removal unless it is prescribed by the dermatologist and assigned by a technician.
The price point is also a bit high considering waxing and shaving requires more use out of the product regularly. There is also the concern for safety when using this product because it is flammable. Always look at the precautions of the product before buying so that you won’t get into any accidents.
The main downside to the product is that it contains alcohol and users who left Tend Skin reviews on other sites have attested that it is quite strong for some skin types. This is why it is recommended that you use a moisturizer after using Tend Skin to avoid the side effects like drying and flaking of the skin.
Since it contains acetylsalicylic acid, the generic name for aspirin, those with allergies should not use this product. However, for those who do not have allergies, the effect of this ingredient will help with soreness, pain, and inflammation.
This is mainly used to give the product a creamy or smooth consistency. It is not harmful to the skin in small amounts, but it can affect extremely sensitive skin.
Everyone likes glycerin because it is a naturally occurring product. Its main use is to moisturize the skin while using Tend Skin liquid solution.
It is not the same as glycerin, but its purpose is to moisturize the skin as well.
This ingredient is mostly used to improve the skin by lightening scars and leaving a nice smooth texture on the skin.
This is used mostly to keep the product intact, allowing the ingredients to mesh together without turning into a suspension while in storage and transit.
The rest of the ingredients such as glycerin, cyclomethicone, digylcerin, are meant to help keep the skin healthy. It works both as a skin relief agent, as well as a counteractive solution to the dryness. Without these ingredients, you may experience intense skin dryness.
It is very important that you follow Tend Skin’s instructions to the letter as well as take not of the precautions that they put on their product. Before using Tend Skin Care Solution, this is what you need to consider:
Using Tend Skin
Once you educated yourself on the do’s and don’t of using Tend Skin Care Solutions products, you can start using it before your next hair removal session. The application also varies depending on the hair removal process you choose.
You can use Tend Skin before and after shaving. You can also use it on your bikini area if you are not going to wax.
Use Tend Skin before and after waxing. However, do not apply moisturizer in the groin or bikini area since this is more prone to infections caused by wet conditions. Wait at least 4 hours before moisturizing the area.
You can apply Tend Skin before and after electrolysis because it helps the technician see the hair follicles better and reduces skin redness after the session.
For Laser Hair Removal
Do not use Tend Skin before laser hair removal because there is a chance that the product may block the light that is used in IPL.
Steps to Take When Using Tend Skin
- 1Do not exfoliate your skin before using Tend Skin.
- 2You may wash the area, but make sure that it is dry before using Tend Skin.
- 3Apply tend skin using a cotton ball on the area that you want to treat.
- 4Wait five minutes for the product to dry before performing any hair removal activities, besides laser hair removal.
- 5When shaving, always use a lubricant, particularly Tend Skin Shave gel to accompany the Tend Skin Care Solution. Do not dry shave as this is the main cause of ingrown hairs. It may also take Tend Skin longer to combat your ingrown hair.
- 6Do not use dull razor blades because this is another cause for ingrown hair growth.
- 7After shaving, waxing, electrolysis, or laser hair removal, apply Tend Skin once more to prevent ingrown hair growth.
- 8Use a moisturizer as instructed above after using Tend Skin.
- 9Use Tend Skin to remove ingrown hair even if you are not undergoing any hair removal activities.
- 10Use it the same way as above.
When Should You Use the Product?
The best time to use Tend Skin Care solution is when you are not about to go out of the house. Exposing sensitive skin that has just gone through exfoliation can cause irritation, sunburns, and infection if the pores are too open. You can wait an hour or so before leaving or you can opt to cover up the area that you’re treating.
You can use Tend Skin after you shower in the morning and at night. It is advisable to use it twice a day to see maximum results. It varies from person to person, so you should assess how much and how long you need to use Tend Skin, but you should not use it more than twice a day.
After considering all the fine points and low points of this product, I’d say that it is a great product to use especially for people who are annoyed with ingrown hair. It’s almost impossible to avoid ingrown hair and if there’s a solution for that then I’ll take it. For those who have sensitive skin and allergies, maybe sit this one out. But for those who are constantly shaving and waxing, you need to try this. So, was this review helpful? Do you want to know anything else about the product?
