Re: Today I Made:

Served with bread from a local bakery, rosemary salt bread also procured at the farmer's market. It was pretty delicious, if I do say s...

Exfoliation is key. I tend to get a few ingrown hairs after waxing, but I can avoid it if I exfoliate every time I wash, and in the couple days after waxing, pat the area with teatree oil and moisturize.
