If you’re one of the people that frequently shaves any hairy part of their body, chances are you’ve experienced razor burn. I think razor burn is one of the most painful things!  It is definitely not a fun experience. There are products out there (like Bikini Zone ) to combat razor burn, but they contain all kinds of nasty chemicals that you don’t want to slather on sensitive areas.  What’s a girl (or guy) to do?  Make their own!

All Natural Razor burn treatment

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cucumber, chopped and peeled

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor or blender.  Apply to affected area and let it sit for 15-30 minutes.  Wash off with lukewarm water.  The coconut oil is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial so it helps rid the area of germs that can cause bumps.  Cucumber is anti-inflammatory, and the yogurt contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates the skin.  Now you’re all set for summer!

How do you combat razor burn?  Or are you one of those people that doesn’t shave?

    This recipe seems great! As a side note, a gentle exfoliation a day or so after shaving really helps too. Our natural soap store sells one specifically for the bikini area!
