Get Rid of Ingrown Hair with Home Remedies



By Tiffany Moore


Ingrown hair is unsightly and painful. They happen when the hair curls back or grow sideways into the skin before breaking through sideways. Ingrown hair can cause itchy, tiny red bumps on your skin, or it can cause a more serious problem such as infection.


There are many ways to take ingrown hairs out, and this method is one of the best home treatments to get rid of ingrown hairs with no pain.


What Can You Do to Remove Ingrown Hair ?

1. Exfoliate the area gently with a scrub, twice a day. You can exfoliate your skin naturally with a mixture of 1 cup brown sugar and 3 teaspoons of honey.  

This will remove any dead skin cells, dirt, and oils that might be trapping the ingrown hair. Be careful not to rub too hard or you will worsen the irritation.


2. Apply a dab of acne medication. The salicylic acid in acne cream can help to reduce swelling and give the ingrown hair a better chance of coming out. It works in the same way as a scrub does by getting rid of dead cells and unclogging the pores.

Or, you can use tea tree oil or witch hazel. These natural products give the same results.


3. Make sure that your skin is soft before you treat the ingrown hairs. You can prep your skin by taking a bath or use a warm face cloth and hold it on the skin for a few minutes to make it soft. The ingrown hair should become more visible and is easier to remove.


4. Use a sterile needle or tweezers to gently remove the hair out of the skin. If you are using tweezers, it should be either pointy or flat-tipped. Pointy-tipped tweezers may cause less damage to the skin around the hair if used carefully.


5. Clean the area with warm water and a moisturizing soap. It is also a good idea to apply an antiseptic for extra protection against infection.



What Is the Best Way to Stop Ingrown Hairs?

To prevent ingrown hairs in the future, avoid wearing tight clothing on that area, exfoliate and moisturize regularly.

Since ingrown hairs are often caused by shaving, make sure you do not pull your skin too tight when shaving.

And, avoid shaving the same area twice and shave in the same direction that the hair grows. This prevents the hair being cut too short, which cause ingrown hairs.
