Unwanted ingrown hairs can be reduced with the help of these two natural methods:
The pilling serves to remove the dead cells from the skin surface. It is important to remove them before depilation since dead cells block the proper growth of hairs and cause the in growing of hairs.
½ cups of poppy seed
1 cup of almond oil
Mix these ingredients in a glass bowl until you get a homogenous mixture, leave it like that for half an hour until the ingredients are well fused after which you can use it.
The pilling should be applied to a sponge and massaged with circular movements across the skin surface which is going to be depilated. The poppy seed will make an invasion of the dead cells whereas the almond oil will calm, feed and moisturize the skin.
When Bentonite clay is combined with water it reacts as a sponge i.e. it removes the toxins and surplus fat from the skin (it can be bought in pharmacies). Thanks to the antivirus properties, it renews the damaged skin and opens up the pores so that growth of the hair is easier. Honey is one of the best natural hydrants, whereas essential oils act against inflammations. Also, the vitamin E oil is a great antioxidant which heals damaged skin.
- 1 spoon of honey
- 1 spoon of bentonite clay
- 7 drops of vitamin E oil
- 3 drops of chamomile, lavender and tea tree essential oil
Mix the clay and the honey in a glass bowl until you get a homogenous mixture and add vitamin E and the essential oils. In order to get a creamier texture add several drops of warm water and stir well.
Use: After pilling and depilation, wash the legs with warm water and dry them. Apply the prepared cream and leave it like that for 15 minutes. Afterwards, gently remove the mixture with a towel soaked in warm water and dry the skin.
