BUSTLE posted "Oui's Deep V Bikini Mask Will Help Get Your Bikini Line Razor Burn Under Control" featuring Dr. Purvisha Patel and Visha Skincare .
The article includes Dr. Patel's expert commentary on the Deep V Bikini Mask and how each ingredient helps soothe bikini razor burns.
If you're part of Team Shave, then you know firsthand that the bikini area needs some TLC during the summer season. Thanks to bikinis and one pieces, that part of your body gets visited by razors and wax strips more often than not. But Oui Shave's Deep V Bikini Mask can help recover your sensitive skin and keep ingrowns at bay. The Deep V Bikini Mask is a sheet mask for your bikini area. This two-part sheet mask is applied to each side of your bikini area for 15 to 20 minutes as Oui’s bio cellulose material works its magic on your skin. But what exactly is bio cellulose?
"Bio cellulose is a made of natural fibers made by bacteria in a lab. It is super thin, and it was originally made for burn and wound treatments to simulate skin. It is now used to help ingredients stay on the skin when in a mask formulation," Dr. Purvisha Patel, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare, tells Bustle.
The Deep V Bikini Mask accomplishes three things: It restores irritated skin, moisturizes, and brightens. For the first part, the mask uses witch hazel, humectants, and plant extracts to help free ingrown hairs, soothe razor burn, and restore your imitated skin. Witch hazel is a widely used skincare ingredient for easing inflammation and soothing sensitive skin.
"It is an astringent, which means it cleanses, or is an antiseptic and contracts skin cells," Patel says. Witch hazel also has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which helps wounds heal, like razor burn. Patel explains that "the witch hazel component of the mask will cleanse pores from microbes and shrink the pores."
