If one has the patience, discipline, and the will power to follow a regime, one can try some of the following natural methods of facial hair removal. These techniques are relatively safe and cheap; however, they need to be regularly used over a period of at least 6 months for results to be visible.
The benefit of these techniques is that the ingredients are readily available in our kitchens and are known to be generally agreeable to sensitive skins.
Turmeric powder, in combination with various other ingredients, is known to slow down the growth of facial hair and eventually stop it from re-growing. When a paste of turmeric and yogurt is regularly applied, it reduces the growth of hair. This method is particularly effective if started at a young age. Also Turmeric is a powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine, and has many health benefits.
2. Gram flour
Another effective hair removal method is the use of gram flour paste. A mixture of gram flour, turmeric, and lemon juice or fresh cream can be applied to the skin. Once the paste has dried, a washcloth dipped in warm water can be used to rub it off in circular motions.
3. Sugar wax
This is a natural version of the wax used in beauty salons, albeit much safer and better for the skin. It is made by heating a mixture of sugar, lemon, and water until the sugar melts and turns brown. This concoction should be used while it is still hot. After applying a moderately thick layer on the skin, a muslin cloth or a commercially available waxing strip should be placed on the area to be waxed. This strip should be pulled in the direction opposite to that of hair growth.
