This is, yet again, a fairly personal topic but I’ve been so excited about my great results that I just had to share with you all. Ingrown hair has been a small but pesky annoyance to me since the days I first picked up a razor. Apparently, my hair and skin don’t work well together and I tend to get more than my fair share of those itchy red bumps.
In fact, in my search to stop this problem, I’ve almost all but given up shaving and switched over to waxing. It’s better but still, as the hair regrows in, it tends to become ingrown. I’ve tried just plain exfoliation with a loofah and I’ve bought and used so many expensive treatments with salicylic acid. All to no avail. In fact, I’d basically given up and decided this was just my little annoyance to bear.
But recently, I ran across an easy and natural treatment that has WORKED for me! In fact it’s so simple, I’m a bit embarrassed that I hadn’t tried it before.
Sugar and oil
Yep. There it is. Just a sugar scrub. Except I don’t put any scents or extras in to make sure it’s as mild and gentle as possible. And if I keep it extra simple and easy, I’ll be more likely to keep mixing it up and using it.
Oils like olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and sunflower oil are all wonderful oils for the skin. I’ve had great luck with them all. They moisturize, protect the skin, and make it silky smooth.
It’s so easy and the results are amazing!!! I noticed a huge difference after using the sugar scrub only a few times. The face, neck, legs, upper thigh, underarms and the pubic region are the most common areas affected but you can use it on just about any part of the body that you tend to get ingrown hair. I hope this little tip helps you as much as it has helped me!
