Yeah I guess I should have never laughed at my mum, crouching in front of the magnifying cosemtic mirror in front of the window to get enough daylight, armed with a pair of very sharp tweezers, hunting for hear black "beard"-hairs that grow on, around and under her chin.

Cause I am getting them too now. Well, I think I always knew that that'd eventually happen to me, but not at the tender age of 31.

So now I got to deal with them. They are not too many, not worth shaving or epilating or waxing, but there are a few, sometimes light, but more often black and quite long. Easy enough to get them with the tweezers. 

BUT and that is my problem: when they grow back, I quite often get fairly big and lumpy spots because of the hair are ingrown and get infected (not only that I am finally getting a skin that is not greasy like a teenagers anymore, now I'm getting ingrown beard-hair pimples on my chin - did I miss the perfect-skin phase between teenager and granny? Thanks for that!)

Anyone else has that problem? Anyone out there know what best to do against my chingrowns? I use a peeling twice a week, but it does not really help I feel. Sigh. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hmm, the only thing I can think of would be to try a sugar scrub to keep the skin exfoliated so that won't happen. You can make your own so easily, just do equal amounts of sugar and oil (olive is really rich, grapeseed would be a bit lighter). You could also do a salt scrub, but sugar is more gentle, especially on the face.

There's a few recipes on the tute list, but it really can be just as simple as the above! Grin
