RELATED: A DIY Way To Go Lighter This Summer
Without further ado, here is a DIY concoction to prevent ingrown hair.
3 tablespoons coconut oil
7 drops lavender oil
12 drops tea tree oil
Mix all ingredients in a small jar or bottle (preferably one that can be sealed off so you can use your mixture later). Apply a small amount to affected area after shaving, waxing, or any hair removal and rub in until it begins to absorb.
This treatment works because the coconut oil is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, yet moisturizing at the same time. The tea tree oil has major healing properties that can be used to fight infections, clear up acne, and reduce redness or irritation. The lavender oil provides a soothing, calming effect on the skin. And, the mixture of all three smells wonderful.
