Facial hair on women is undesirable for the simple reason that facial hair in modern culture is associated with masculinity. There are numerous different ways to get rid of unwanted facial hair including plucking, waxing, threading and bleaching. However, these are only designed to be temporary solutions to your problem and these techniques also have their drawbacks. For example, waxing and shaving can lead to faster hair growth, and bleaching is known to potentially damage the skin and is therefore unsuitable for those with sensitive skin. There are also other treatments for hair removal, such as electrolysis and laser hair removal, but these can be costly and are also known to have their own side effects. Additionally, none of these methods lead to the permanent removal of hair. This article will take a look at some lesser-known methods of hair removal using natural products that are guaranteed to be kind and gentle to your skin.
Home Remedies for Facial Hair
1. Hair Removal Cream
You might also look into using hair removal creams to remove unwanted facial hair, such as Nair. All you have to do is apply the cream to the unwanted hair, wait for roughly 5 minutes (or however long the product states) and then take a damp cloth and wipe off the cream. Your unwanted hair will have come off while you wiped the cream off. This method should be completely pain-free. If you experience a light tingle it is a sign you’ve left the cream on too long.
2. Lemon and Sugar
In order to use lemon and sugar for hair removal, you should mix 1 fresh lemon with 1 spoon of sugar. You should also use a little water so as to dissolve the sugar. Leave the mixture on your face for 15-20 minutes and then wash off with cold water. If you do this regularly, at least 3 times a week, you will begin to see a noticeable reduction in hair growth. It works kind of like an exfoliating agent with the lemon acting as an antiseptic and astringent.
3. Lemon Juice and Gram Flour
Another quick and easy method of removing unwanted facial hair is lemon juice and gram flour mixture. Squeeze 10ml of lemon juice into a cup of water and then add 30g of gram flour, mixing well. Once this mixture has been applied to your face, you should wait 15 minutes then gently scrub the affected area in the direction of hair growth to remove the unwanted facial hair.
