Recipe For Ingrown Hair Serum

Or permanent hair removal, ingrown hair (folliculitis) can be a possibility. However, there is no need to worry. There are ways to combat them effectively and inexpensively! At Theresa’s Face and Body Cape Coral Spa, we are all about sharing the best tips to make your waxing and electrolysis experience effective and inexpensive.

The best way to prevent ingrown hair after hair removal is with exfoliation serums. Tend Skin is a product that I have been recommending to clients to apply to their skin 24 hours after their wax or electrolysis treatments. It costs between $17 and $25 dollars and can be found on Amazon or at Target in the men’s shaving section or at Ulta Beauty. For those wishing to save some money, here is a recipe to create your own serum that I found online that works similarly to Tend Skin. It is less than half the price of Tend Skin.

Here is what you will need:

  • 26 Uncoated Aspirin
  • 5.5oz 70% Alcohol
  • 2.5oz Witch Hazel 1 Measuring Cup/bottle
  • 2 Bottles used to shake mixtures
  • 1 8oz or more Spray Bottle/Container to keep finished product

What you need to do

  1. Pour the alcohol into one bottle.
  2. Drop 18 uncoated aspirins into the alcohol. Cap bottle and shake.
  3. Pour the witch hazel into the second bottle.
  4. Drop 8 uncoated aspirins into the witch hazel. Cap bottle and shake.
  5. Wait a while (30 minutes to a whole day) for the aspirins to dissolve in the liquids. Shake periodically to help dissolve aspirin and mix. Note: Not all of the aspirin will dissolve but that is okay.
  6. Now combine both the alcohol and witch hazel mixtures together into one bottle. Make sure you shake it up before you pour them out so you also get the aspirin residue into the new bottle.

Directions: Use 1-2 times a day slightly saturating a cotton pad and applying to the area that was waxed or had electrolysis. Reduce usage if you experience dryness or flaking or irritation.

****DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN. Make sure you shake it well before each use.

(Disclaimer: Please note that trying this recipe is AT YOUR OWN RISK. You should be aware that a product that works well for another may not work as well with your skin or may be difficult to reproduce in the same concentration.)
