DIY ingrown hair treatment

At home remedies to treat ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

We have a few ways to help you get your pins back to spot-free perfection but for seriously stubborn ingrowns, see a dermatologist.

  • Moisturise and exfoliate regularly – this can help to remove dead skin and hairs that may clog hair follicles, as well as promote growth in the right direction.
  • Use sugar – the sweet stuff gently exfoliates and removes dead cells, and will also leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. Mix a cup of white sugar with half a cup of jojoba oil or coconut oil. Add in 5 to 10 drops of tea tree oil and lavender et voila – scrub away.
  • Take a tea break – Black tea is rich in tannic acid, which reduces redness and inflammation and helps soothe the skin. Simply moisten a tea bag in warm water and rub over the affected area. Rinse and repeat as needed.

NEXT: Try the manuka honey face mask for a smooth and refreshed look.
