Shaving is one of the most convenient methods of hair removal. But, if it is done incorrectly, it can lead to razor bumps. And boy, are those painful. They burn and hurt to no end. Thankfully, there are home remedies like aloe vera and yogurt that you can use to treat these razor bumps.
Razor bumps happen when the hair, instead of growing back over the surface of the skin, grows under a layer of skin.
Basically the skin curls up underneath the top layer of the skin, called the epidermis. These often get infected to a large extent and red bumps are formed, which can be quite itchy.
Shaving removes the hair by cutting it from the middle, while waxing actually pulls out the hair from its root. Waxing is obviously more painfull, but razor bumps are the reason why most people shy away from shaving.
Be sure to never pluck out these hairs using a dirty tweezer. Any plucking, if not done carefully, could further irritate the area and make it worse.
But there's no reason to be scared, as a little information on how to use aloe vera and yogurt for razor bumps can help treat the condition with ease.
Also, shaving needs to be done correctly, and then there's no reason why you should face any problems! This DIY aloe vera and yogurt pack would provide you with some relief against razor bumps. Take a look!

Method & Application:
Scoop out the gel from one aloe vera leaf very carefully and mix one teaspoon of yogurt in it. Mix it well to form a very gel-like liquid.
The aloe vera gel, when it is just scooped out, can be a little solid. So, ensure the mixture reaches its gel-like consistency. Using aloe vera is one of the most simple natural home remedies for razor bumps.
Use this DIY aloe and yogurt pack to relieve those razor bumps on the areas that hurt the most and sit underneath a fan or anywhere where it can dry. Once it dries, wash it off. You will feel soothed immediately.
And like always, do a patch test before you use any of the new ingredients.
