Hairs that curl around and grow back into the skin, without rising up are called ingrown hairs. They can cause irritation and may be quite problematic. Thus, let us see some tips to get rid of them:
Honey and salt scrub – Make a mixture of ½ cup of sea salt with ½ cup of honey and gently scrub it into the skin while you take a shower. You should finally rinse it off with mild and non-irritating soap and water.
Scrub with avocado, almond, and oatmeal – You should moisturize your dry skin with this mixture made of 1/3 cup of ground almonds, 1 mashed avocado, and ¾-1 cup of ground oatmeal. Massage it gently on the skin in a circular motion and then use water to rinse it off. Finally, pat dry the skin.
Remove your hairs safely – Soak your tweezers in rubbing alcohol in order to disinfect them. Exfoliate the skin around the ingrown hair in order to get rid of dead skin cells, and then dab the skin with a washcloth run under hot water. In this way, your skin will soften. Once you are ready, grasp the hair with the tweezers and pull it out. In the end, rinse it off and apply some coconut oil in order to ease the irritated spot.
