DIY Sugar Scrub For Ingrown Hair

Written By:

Shaving and other methods of hair removal can often lead to the growth of ingrown hairs. Sugar is an ingredient in many scrubs used to remove ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs are basically hairs that get stuck underneath a layer of skin. The skin just grows over the hair. They are clogged pores on the body.

Sometimes, when the hair is growing back after shaving or waxing, skin has already grown over the area that was hairless, due to hair removal. So when the hair grows back it gets trapped under the skin. Sugar is a really good home remedy for ingrown hairs.

Scrubbing is really important, not just for the face but also for the body. How else are you supposed to get rid of dead skin cells to make way for new ones?
