I know this sounds weird, but I've tried this home remedy last summer and it works for getting out ingrown hairs! After a few weeks of shaving and heading to the beach and gathering up sweat all over (and bacteria I guess), my bikini line was a disaster - I kept getting lumps and bumps of trapped hair. So my sister told me that she heard of this tip that she read in a magazine saying that if you crush Advil pills or Tylenol pills then apply the powder to your bikini line area every morning and before bed for a week, then the hairs will start to come out by themselves - like a magic potion! I even do this now after waxing or shaving at any time of the year when I get a couple of ingrown hairs here and there and it kind of feels like it soothes the irritated skin at the same time.

What You'll Need

  • Advil or Tylenol
  • Water
  • Something to crush tablets, like a spoon

What You'll Do

  • Take 2 tablets of either Advil or Tylenol and crush them until they are in a powder form
  • Add a few drops of water and mix into the powder until it turns into a paste
  • Apply onto ingrown hairs
  • Let sit for 30 minutes
  • Wash off with warm water
