Natural Remedies to Remove Facial Hair

Edited By: Krista Mc'Farlene
 Did you know that hirsutism (also known as excessive hair in unusual areas) affects about 5-10% of women of all ages? While tweezing and waxing may seem like the only solutions to such a problem, you don't necessarily need to resort to such painful methods of facial hair removal, especially when other, less painful methods are found right in your kitchen. Here's a list of some of the most effective remedies for removing facial hair. 
 
 
1. Green gram flour and rose water
remedies for facial hair

What you need:

2 tablespoons of green gram flour
1-2 tablespoons of rose water
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

What to do: Mix the green gram flour and the rose water together in a bowl forming a paste. Add lemon juice, then mix the ingredients once again. 

How to use it: Apply the paste onto the affected areas of your skin, letting it sit for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is completely dry, then rub the mask off with your fingers. Repeat for 3 to 4 times each week. 

Why it works: Green gram flour has great exfoliating properties, and when paired with rose water, it helps inhibit hair growth. It can also be used on all skin types.

 

2. Onion and basil
