“Medicine’s a funny business. After all, dispensing chemicals is considered mainstream and diet and nutrition is considered alternative.”
― Charles F. Glassman
As bathing suit season approaches, and women start to mentally prepare themselves for the great wax-off of the season after months of unsupervised hair growth, anxiety skyrockets in anticipation of the painful event. Have no fear! By combining some highly effective and refreshing essential oils, to soothe sensitive skin, tear-invoked redness and irritation after the traumatic event will be a thing of the past!
Hair folliculitis may occur when activities of hair removal, whether it is by waxing or shaving, are performed incorrectly. The tear removal, when not done correctly, can irritate the follicle and generate microtrauma to the skin. For shaving, however, the irritation is generated by the action of the blade: when performed incorrectly, this habit can cause small wounds, as well as encourage the formation of ingrown hairs.
When folliculitis manifests itself in a light form, it is possible to take advantage of some natural remedies, after consulting your dermatologist. Malva compresses can be useful, as they are naturally soothing and antibacterial, as well as thyme, garlic, chamomile, calendula and aloe. For more serious situations, for example with numerous pimples, pain and extended redness, your doctor may recommend targeted and specific treatments.
3 Natural Remedies to Soothe Sensitive Skin
The following are 3 essential oil-based remedies to soothe skin after waxing.
- Peppermint Essential Oil: Choose a neutral aloe vera based cream, then add 20 drops of peppermint essential oil to 3.5 ounces of the cream. Make sure it does not contain alcohol, as that will irritate sensitive skin. The mixture will give you a feeling of freshness and relief, as well as soothe irritation.
- Lavender Essential Oil: Mix 20 drops of lavender essential oil with 3.5 ounces of calendula oil. Calendula oil has intense, soothing properties, is recommended for sensitive skin, and when mixed with lavender oil will significantly reduce redness from waxing.
- Geranium Essential Oil: Add 20 drops of geranium essential oil and 20 drops of peppermint essential oil to 3.5 ounces of sweet almond oil. The sweet almond oil will act as a moisturizer, while the essential oil of geranium will help slow down the hair growth. The peppermint oil will provide a sensation of freshness and relief.
