Remove unwanted facial hair naturally with items from your kitchen. You do not need to endure the embarrassment of the salon, or the expense and dissatisfaction of drug store treatments.
Facial hair removal for women is a necessity. Many women suffer with facial hair problems in silence, believing they are alone in their fight against unruly, unwanted hair, but the fact is that most women will experience dark facial hair at some point in their lives due to aging, changing hormones or a variety of genetic conditions.
You do not have to suffer in silence. If you desire a private solution for facial hair in the privacy of your own home, you can use items from your kitchen to naturally remove facial hair.
Natural Sugaring Recipe for Facial Hair Removal at Home
If you detest the idea of buying a waxing or sugaring kit for hair removal, then you can create your own sugaring paste at home from inconspicuous ingredients. Strangers at the supermarket will never guess that you are sugaring to remove facial hair at home.
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup sugar
Add the ingredients to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 2-3 minutes. Make sure the solution is not too hot, and spread it in a thin layer on the skin using a sugaring applicator. The flat side of a butter knife works just as well. Press a cloth strip to onto the skin over the sugar solution and quickly pull it off when the solution hardens.
This natural sugaring solution works well for any area of the body plagued with unwanted hair, but sugaring and waxing are somewhat painful. Many women use sugaring techniques on fine or sporadic facial hair, but the hair must be allowed to grow enough for the solution to grasp the hair. For some women with more sever facial hair problems, this growth requirement makes sugaring and waxing undesirable.
Natural Facial Hair Removal
1 egg white
1/2 tsp corn flour
1 tsp sugar
Mix the ingredients to form a paste. The paste should be thick, but should spread easily. Apply the paste to the face and allow it to dry. When dry, peel it away, and then rinse with lukewarm water. This method can be used for shorter hair than that needed for waxing or sugaring, but is not as effective.
Natural Bleach for Facial Hair
4 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
Combine the ingredients and apply to the face. Leave on for a maximum of 15 minutes before rinsing with water. Bleach is an effective alternative for sparse hair growth. For longer, denser hair growth, bleaching will only emphasize and accentuate the problem.
Always test a small area of the skin, preferably not on the face, before trying any new facial hair removal method. My skin does not react well to lemon juice, and I have had an unfortunate, although minor, negative experience with a pink grapefruit juice scrub. Test your skin's reaction before applying any cream, lotion, scrub, or mask to your face, both commercial and homemade products.
