Ever had a skin bump with hair growing inside? It’s just so painful and irritating, right? It’s called an ingrown hair. The hair curls and grows inside the skin, without getting out. It’s really annoying. Generally, it can happen a few days after shaving. One of the reasons is the thick dead skin blocking the free growth of hair. It’s really quite problematic.
But we don’t have to worry too much. These are some of the tips to get rid of ingrown hair:
Honey and Salt scrub
Make a mixture of ½ cup of honey and ½ cup of sea salt and rub it gently on the skin while taking a shower. It won’t twitch or hurt. Once applied, we should use a mild, non-irritating soap and water mixture to rinse it off.
Avocado, Almond and Oatmeal Scrub
This acts as a moisturizer. We should use it especially if the skin is dry and needs moisturizing. It’s a mixture of 1 mashed avocado, 1/3 cup of ground almonds and a ¾-1 cup of ground oatmeal. Massage it gently on the skin. Then, we can rinse it off with water.
