8 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps –

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


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.

Removing the Hair safely

This can be a bit of a painful process. First, we need to disinfect

the tweezers by soaking it in alcohol. Then, exfoliate the skin formed

around the ingrown hair. Once the dead skin is removed, we should dab

the skin with running hot water. This will make the skin soft. We are

now ready to grasp the hair and pull it with the tweezers. It may be a

bit painful but once pulled off, we should immediately rinse the spot,

and dab it with coconut oil. It’ll ease the irritation a lot.


Even if the skin is not dry, we should invest in some moisturizers

and keep the skin moist. Dry skin is always a bit irritating, isn’t it?

Moisturizing will also help the ingrown hair to be pushed out and

relieve some irritation. Coconut oil is a good moisturizer, but any

would do.

A mix of Honey and Aspirin

This is an odd mixture but it’s extremely helpful for ingrown hair.

Aspirin has salicylic acid which helps to moisturize the skin and shed

more dead skin. How do you make this mixture? Crush three tablets of

aspirin and mix it with 1 tsp of honey. Apply the paste on the affected

area and let it sit for 10 minutes.  Use warm water to rinse it off.

Tree Tea oil

Tree tea oil is an herbal product that is infused with antiseptic

properties. It’s great for reducing inflammation and the pain due to

ingrown hair. We should apply this oil with a cotton swab two times a


A Paste of Baking Soda

We can slowly bring out the ingrown hair by using a paste of baking

soda. Just add some baking soda in water and make a thick paste out of

it. Apply it on the skin in circular motion. We can rinse it off with

some water and finally, apply coconut oil to moisturize the skin and

ease the irritation. It’ll make sure the pores are not getting plugged.


Before shaving, make sure you exfoliate the skin 1-2 days earlier.

This helps the hair to grow freely. We could use an exfoliating glove or

soap for exfoliation purposes.

It’s a bit of a hard work, but if you follow these steps, the painful

bumps after shaving will go away. Share these tips with your friends

and have a happy skin life.
