The Powers of Propolis: Soothe irritated bumps and razor burn with this remarkable ingredient from nature

Spring and summer are right around the corner, which means it's time to start thinking about beach and poolside weather! But we all know that getting the bikini area ready for swimsuit season can sometimes be a painful process.

Shaving or waxing can leave us with itchy bumps and irritated skin that can be uncomfortable and unsightly. Having done some personal research on this problem many years ago, I discovered a compound found in nature that I believed could be beneficial in soothing irritated skin. Enter, Bee Propolis.

Sold as a powerful antioxidant supplement, the sticky substance is made by honey bees to disinfect and repair their bee hive. What better to disinfect and repair irritated skin than this little gem from nature? So I went about preparing all kinds of formulas to test out my theory. I tried everything from straight propolis tincture on the skin -- which I don't recommend because it's uber-sticky, and it stains badly -- to combining propolis with something more liquidy or viscous, such as witch hazel, tea tree, and hemp seed oils.

The result is a product that's been in the Valley Green line since our earliest days of production... Betty Lou's Bikini Bump Balm. Having been tried and tested by multiple women over the years (and men - don't forget manscaping!), this product has been fine-tuned and specially formulated to soothe and calm irritated skin caused by shaving and waxing.

The key ingredients in Betty Lou's are carefully selected to provide relief and restore skin to its natural balance. Tea tree oil helps to clean skin from bacteria caused by perspiration, while also preventing irritation. Peppermint oil is included in the formula for its cooling and soothing effects. This helps to reduce redness and inflammation, providing instant relief to irritated skin.

Hemp and sweet almond oils assist in balancing the skin's sebum production, which can help to discourage redness and bumps. Betty Lou's non-stinging formula is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, making it perfect for soothing and calming irritated bikini areas.

So, perhaps you're asking... "Where did the name, Betty Lou's Bikini Bump Balm, come from?" Well, I can't share all my company secrets, so that one will have to remain locked in the mystery vault. That is, unless, Miss Betty Lou decides one day to reveal her secret. For now, suffice it to say that she has the smoothest bikini area in town!

So, if your bikini area needs a good, soothing, How do you do, be sure to give Betty Lou's a try. You'll be saying goodbye to itchy bumps and irritated skin, and hello to rocking that swimsuit with confidence this season!

'Til next time, stay smooth, and be cool.
