Don’t you just hate it when you only get to enjoy hairless legs, arms, or pits for a while before ingrown hair pester you and ruins your day? I mean, does looking good have to be so annoyingly difficult? Ok, yes, razor burns are worth those couple of days when we can freely wear shorts, dresses, and skirts but to add ingrown hair to the mix is just ridiculous! Especially if you don’t have the amazing powers of essential oils that can just help you with this dilemma.
You see, there are a number of essential oils out there that can help in preventing and treating ingrown hair. Listed below are these oils that you can use to naturally get flawless, hairless skin.
Tea Tree and Lavender Essential Oils
Ingrown hairs have such great capacities to induce infections on the skin, something that can be prevented through the use of Tea Tree Oil or Lavender Oil. The former has a high terpene alcohol content that makes it a good antibacterial and antiseptic to fight bacteria. Additionally, this can keep the skin clean by checking sebum production and pore size. Meanwhile, the latter has gentle and soothing properties that also help in lessening the redness of any inflammation the ingrown hair may cause.
Chamomile Essential Oil
Chamomile Oil is yet another essential in preventing the formation of ingrown hair because it prevents dryness, which leads to dead skin cells and cause an obstruction to hair growth. When use preemptively, this can ensure that no redness, itching, or infection will take place.
Lemongrass Essential Oil
This essential oil has properties that help in skin rejuvenation, improvement on the appearance of wounds and reducing scar formation or skin pigmentation. Lemongrass Oil can also open clogged pores and ingrown hairs to prevent it from turning into an infection or a boil.
Frankincense Essential Oil
Nasty ingrown hairs can sometimes lead to pus formation after being infected. To prevent this from happening, use Frankincense Oil because it has strong antiseptic properties that can stop any kind of infection from taking place.
