Usually, unwanted facial hair growth in women is due to high levels of androgens (such as testosterone) in the body. These hairs are not always hazardous to health and can be removed in one of a variety of ways. For example, using electrolysis, laser, or wax. However, some of these methods can be expensive and the procedure can be painful.
We will name a few ingredients that will help you make your face look smooth, and best of all, you can probably find everything you need right in your kitchen.
1. Oatmeal + honey + lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp coarsely chopped oatmeal
- 1 tbsp. l. honey
- 6-8 drops of lemon juice
Oatmeal is great for many itchy and irritated skin conditions and is especially good at exfoliating the skin. When combined with honey and lemon juice, it also helps with hair removal. You need to mix all these ingredients into a paste, rub it into the hair growth area and rinse off after 15 minutes. After about a month of regular procedures, you will see the first results.
2. Sugar + water + lemon juice
This technique, commonly known as shugaring, is popular for its ability to slow down hair growth, which means that as you repeat the procedure, unwanted hair will decrease. To make the procedure easy, fast, and painless, it is better to entrust it to professionals. But if you are confident in your abilities, then it is quite possible to apply this method at home. The main thing is to remember that shugaring may be contraindicated for skin and some other diseases.
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup water
Boil the mixture in a saucepan and let it simmer over low heat. Stir gently (stirring too vigorously may cause the mixture to crystallize) and make sure the paste does not burn. The final substance should be golden in color. Let it cool before use.
Spread the sugar paste over the skin with light strokes against hair growth. In addition to the face, it can be applied to other parts of the body. Recommended to be repeated every 3-5 weeks.
3. Papaya + milk
- 2 tbsp. l. finely chopped papaya pulp
- 1 tbsp. l. milk
Papaya contains papain, an enzyme that expands hair follicles and causes natural hair loss. In addition, lactic acid cleanses the epidermis (outer layer of the skin), evening out the complexion. Just mix the papaya with milk to make a thick paste and apply it all over your face. Rub it into the skin, leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse it off. Repeat the procedure 4-5 times a week for quick results.
4. Egg + sugar + cornflour
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp. l. Sahara
- 1/2 tbsp. l. cornflour
When all of these ingredients are mixed together, you can create an effective exfoliating hair removal mask. Egg whites play an important role here, as they even out skin tone and form a thin film on the face, which is conducive to depilation. After application, leave the mask to dry completely, then rinse off and apply a soothing moisturizer.
5. Mint tea
- 1 glass of water
- 1 tsp dried mint
- 4-5 fresh mint leaves (optional)
Mint tea has been proven to be an effective antiandrogenic agent for mild hirsutism, which means it can help remove any unwanted facial hair. Drink it 2 times a day to balance hormones and reduce hair growth.
6. Barley + lime juice + milk
- 1 tbsp. l. barley powder
- 1 tbsp. l. lime juice
- 1 tbsp. l. milk
While lime juice tightens pores, barley exfoliates and softens the skin and also removes unwanted facial hair, slowing its growth. A paste from these components must be applied to the face, left for 30 minutes, and then washed off with water.
7. Orange zest + oatmeal + water
- 2 tbsp. l. dry crushed orange peel
- 1 tbsp. l. oatmeal
- 1 tbsp. l. water
By making a thick paste from these ingredients, you can use it to lighten your hair and easily exfoliate your skin. Oatmeal is an excellent natural skin cleanser. Orange peel has brightening and moisturizing properties gives the skin a glow and even helps get rid of acne and scars. The paste must be left for a few minutes to dry, and then massage the face in a circular motion and rinse. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
8. Turmeric + chickpea flour + salt + milk
- 1 tbsp. l. turmeric
- 1 tbsp. l. chickpea flour
- 1 tbsp. l. water
Indians have long used turmeric to remove excess hair. This ingredient has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which means it will protect your skin during the depilation process. Mix equal parts turmeric, water, and chickpea flour (which also has exfoliating properties ) into a homogeneous mass and apply it to the affected area. Wait for the paste to dry and wash off with warm water. Repeat weekly.
9. Raw papaya + turmeric + chickpea flour + aloe vera
- 2 tbsp. l. raw papaya pulp
- 2 tbsp. l. aloe vera gel
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp. l. chickpea flour
Aloe vera protects the skin from UV and gamma radiation, and the gel has moisturizing and anti-aging properties. Combine the aloe vera gel with the rest of the ingredients for the perfect face mask. Apply it and leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse it off. Use 3-4 times a week.
