Ease razor bumps with this terrific cucumber-yoghurt soother


I don’t prefer waxing as a method of hair removal.
Undoubtedly, it gives hair-free arms and legs for weeks together, but I find it so painful, cumbersome and messy. The other reason for disliking it is that I have a sensitive skin which tends to break into rashes soon after I wax.
Depilatory creams are okay with me, but I usually go for shaving to get rid of that superfluous hair growth.
It’s quick, non-messy, and hassle-free; above all it doesn’t hurt.
Agreed that the re-growth is faster when compared to waxing, but it doesn’t make the hair grow any darker or thicker.
Sometimes, though, there are these problems of getting a few razor bumps as also the chances of getting ingrown hair, but overall it’s a very convenient way to get smooth, hair-free arms and legs in a jiffy.

To soothe razor bumps and prevent ingrown hair, I normally slather on a homemade puree made of cucumber and yoghurt, immediately after shaving or whenever I have a minor razor-bump breakout. The cool cucumber’s anti-inflammatory action calms shaving irritation, while the probiotic yoghurt’s lactic acid gently exfoliates the skin to prevent ingrown hair.

The recipe for cucumber-yoghurt soother:
1 cup yoghurt
½ a cucumber
Blend cucumber and yoghurt to get a puree. Apply this mixture on hands, legs or whichever area that has been shaved and let it remain for 15 minutes. Then rinse off with cool water.
