How to get rid of ingrown hairs on legs and thighs at home


How to Get Rid of Ingrown Hair? You get ingrown hairs when your hair grows
back into the skin, instead of up to the surface. It can happen when hair has been shaved, waxed,
or plucked. Ingrown hairs are most frequently among people
of the African American community or people who have curly hair. An ingrown hair can produce a raised, red
bump that looks like a little pimple. At times, there may be pus inside the bump. It also causes redness, swelling, inflammation,
pain, and irritation in the area. In most cases, you don’t need to treat ingrown
pubic hairs. They’ll often clear up on their own without
treatment. There are some home remedies for ingrown hairs
and razor bumps that can bring some relief and fast healing. 1. Free the Trapped Hair. Always make sure you use a clean, sharp tool
to extract the ingrown hair. use a pointed-tip pair of tweezers and always
soak them in rubbing alcohol between uses to avoid causing irritation or infection from
any bacteria that the blades can be exposed to. This part can be tricky because you want to
get the entire hair without breaking it off at the skin and having to go through the whole
process again. The best way to avoid that is to wait until
the hair has some length beyond the skin, and make sure you have strong tweezers. 2. Use A Compress. A compress is directly applying pressure to
an area using a soft or absorbent material. This is used to relieve symptoms like inflammation. A hot compress will help your pores open up
which will reduce your risk for razor bumps. Dip a towel or something similar into water
that is warm enough to have an effect, but cool enough as not to cause you unnecessary
discomfort. Press the cloth to the area for a few minutes
at a time -rewarming the towel as needed. A cold compress, on the other hand, can help
relieve redness, itchiness, and irritation in areas where bumps are likely to appear
or already are. One of those cold freezers packs works well,
or you can just wrap a bunch of ice in a towel and use that. 3. Using Egg Membrane. Remove an egg membrane from inside an eggshell. Cover the ingrown hair region with the egg
membrane. Keep it for some time until it dries and shrinks
up. Gently peel off the egg membrane and the ingrown
hair will come out with it. 3. Sugar Scrub. Sugar is great skin scrubs that can help get
rid of ingrown hair. Mix one cup of white sugar with a one-half
cup of extra-virgin olive oil or jojoba oil. Stir in 10 drops each of tea tree oil and
lavender essential oil. Apply a small amount of this homemade scrub
on the affected area. Gently scrub the skin in circular motions
for a few minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. 4. Use creams to reduce inflammation. If the ingrown pubic hair is causing a lot
of redness and inflammation, your doctor may prescribe a steroid cream. This topical treatment can reduce swelling
and irritation around the hair. Thanks for watching, don’t forget to subscribe
