We thought it would be fun to celebrate Movember in a feminine way.
Every woman deals with unwanted hair on their face, especially the hair above the upper lip, neck, cheeks, and chin. Most women who encounter this immediately reach for wax, strips, facial Nair, a razor or an electric mini razor for a form of hair removal. Some who can afford it get laser treatments. However, there are natural and possibly permanent solutions to this problem.
Ladies in the Middle East have been using natural ingredients like turmeric to make their skin hairless and healthy. It’s important to pay attention when it comes to skin care, because your skin is the largest organ of your body. Most importantly, drinking lots of water will also help the keep skin to be hydrated and healthy too.
Turmeric can be used for unwanted facial hair, as well as hair on other parts of the body.
The way turmeric works is by slowing down hair growth. With continued use (over time), you will notice that your hair won’t grow back as quickly and will eventually stop growing altogether. Note that after removing the turmeric, your skin will appear yellow. Don’t worry. Witch hazel will remove it. Or you can mix water with sugar and scrub your face with it. You can also use baking soda and a little soap to take out the yellow.
4 tbsp of sea salt
6 tbsp of ground turmeric
4-5 tbsp of milk (nut or dairy)
Create a paste combining all the ingredients. Make sure your face is clean and dry before applying.
Apply the mix to the area where you want hair removed. Then allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes.
To remove mask, rinse it off with cool water, rubbing in a circular motion opposite to how your hair grows to aid in hair removal.
Repeat every 3-4 days. After using for about 3 months your hair will be finer and take much longer to grow back. You can store the remaining mixture in the refrigerator (up to 2 weeks).
This remedy isn’t the fastest, but it is all-natural and safe, compared to laser hair removal and chemical products.
