As I have mentioned several times on this blog, my favourite hair removal method is shaving. That’s because shaving is fast and painless but unfortunately, it also irritates skin. I usually apply moisturizer on my skin after shaving, but a few days ago, I was in the mood to try a DIY recipe instead and surfed the ‘net for ideas on what I could use for it.
I stumbled on this useful recipe on Bella Sugar, which uses aspirin to soothe skin and decided to give it a go. And guess what? It worked really well! So, I decided to share it with you. Here’s what you need.
- 2 aspirin
- 1/4 cup of distilled water
- a few drops of glycerin
- 2 sheets of wax paper
Crush the aspirin between two sheets of wax paper and pour it into the cup of water to dissolve it. Add 3 drops of glycerin to it (glycerin prevents moisture from evaporating from your skin but it also dissolves the aspirin). Stir well until the aspirin is completely dissolved. Now, shave your legs as usual and then, using a cotton ball, apply the mixture to your skin. Doesn’t your skin feel soothed now?
