The facial hair and any other hairs that appear on the body aren’t something most women are proud of. In fact, they opt for shaving and waxing, but the problem is, the results are short-lasting. The hairs on the upper lips, cheeks, and the chin can prove to be a real nightmare.
Luckily, there is another option and it doesn’t involve painful waxing – here are some of the most effective natural ways you can try to get rid of facial hair:
A powerful antiseptic, the turmeric prevents facial hair growth. Simply mix some turmeric and water to make a paste and apply it on the affected areas. Remove the paste after it dries along with the hairs by using a towel soak in lukewarm water.
Potato and Lentils
Soak a cup of yellow lentils in water and let them sit overnight. Crush them in the morning with a mortar and pestle to make a paste. Peel 3 potatoes and run them through the food processor and extract the juice. Then mix the lentils paste with the potato juice and add 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix everything well and apply the paste on the affected areas. Leave it on for 20 minutes and remove it after it dries.
Eggs can also help you remove facial hair. Mix a tablespoon of corn flour, a tablespoon of sugar, and an egg white in a bowl. Apply the paste on the affected areas and wash it off as soon as it dries.
Mix a bit of turmeric and papaya to make a paste and apply it on the mustache area, sideburns, and the chin to prevent their growth and remove the ones that are there.
Mostly used in traditional remedies in India, gram flour is excellent for hair removal when mixed with some turmeric and water. Apply the paste of the affected areas and remove the hairs with ease.
