SOOTHER INFLAMMATION WITH TEA OIL
Tea tree oil has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, while olive oil contains fatty acids that help achieve smooth skin. It is recommended to perform a patch test to make sure that tea tree oil will not cause further irritation after application. Then mix one tablespoon of olive oil with five drops of tea tree oil and apply the mixture to the desired area using a pad. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.
BATH IN OAT FLAKES
Oatmeal baths are a traditional remedy for soothing the skin and relieving itching that is sometimes caused by shaving. Starch and beta-glucan in oatmeal act as a protective and moisturizing agent. Oatmeal also contains phenols that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. You can take a bath in an oatmeal bath or mix oatmeal with plain yogurt and honey to create a paste. The probiotics in yogurt will help restore the skin’s protective barrier. Mix ground oatmeal or oatmeal with yogurt, in equal proportions. Add one teaspoon of honey to the mixture and apply the paste on the desired area. Leave it on the skin until it dries, about 30 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water. Repeat this procedure twice a day for three days.
GIVE YOUR SKIN RELIEF WITH MILK AND FRESH CUCUMBERS
Fresh cucumbers not only have a cooling effect, they also contain vitamin C which helps in skin regeneration. Milk has a soothing effect on the skin, thanks to fats and proteins. The combination of fresh cucumber and milk can provide the skin with hydration and cooling to relieve razor irritation. Peel a cucumber, then put it in a blender with 1/4 cup of milk. Place the resulting mixture in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, then apply it to the affected area. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Reapply if necessary.
STRAWBERRIES COULD BE HELPFUL
Strawberries have anti-inflammatory properties that could help treat irritated skin, and sour cream fats will help protect and soothe the skin. Strawberries contain seeds that could act as a mechanical exfoliant in the fight against ingrown hairs and skin irritation after shaving. However, much more research is needed to confirm whether this is fully effective as an aftershave treatment. If you still want to try it, mash a few strawberries with a small amount of sour cream and stir until you get a uniform mixture. Apply it on the affected area and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it with cold water and pat dry with a towel.
After-shave skin irritation can lead to redness and irritation, which can cause hyperpigmentation and scarring. In severe cases of irritation, keep in mind that it is best to seek professional help.
