Dealing with unwanted hair can be an ongoing struggle, especially if it’s on your face. Facial hair can quickly turn into your worst nightmare if it is not dealt with carefully. Which is why we believe that home hacks for hair removal are your safest bet when it comes to facial hair.

While investing in long term solutions can be expensive, you can resort to easy and quick homemade hacks. This will make the process much more simpler and painless; instead of opting for waxing—which can cause breakouts and acne. Experimenting with razors on your face isn’t the smartest solution either as it can harm your skin in irreparable ways. The better option then is—to go about it the natural way.

Dig into your kitchen ladies, it is time for some home hacks for hair removal...

Turmeric time:

Turmeric time

This is an age-old trick. Turmeric is a hit and a harmless hair removing agent, as it has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It will gently help remove your facial hair without causing your skin any harm.

How to go about it:

Start by soaking turmeric in water. Then, whip the mixture into a smooth paste. If you have thick hair, you can add rice flour to this mix.

Gently apply this turmeric paste on your face with unwanted hair. Then, let it dry for about 15 minutes. Then, gently scrub the turmeric away and rinse with warm water.

Repeat this process as frequently as possible as per your hair growth pattern.  

Egg is egg-cellent

Egg is egg-cellent

Since eggs have a sticky consistency, it helps stick to your facial hair and makes it easier to peel. Using egg for your face also has added benefits, as it is loaded with protein which helps  nourish your skin.

How to go about it:

Start by mixing egg whites with 1 tablespoons of cornstarch. Then, stir this mixture. Add sugar to this mix, and beat this mixture.

Apply this smooth and sticky mixture on your face. Let this face mask dry for about 20 minutes. Once it dries off, peel off this mask followed by rinsing your face with lukewarm water.

Repeat this process two or three times a week for effective results.  

Lemon and honey:

Lemon and honey

This is an easy and quick trick. Lemon has bleaching properties which will help clear your complexion and honey is a natural moisturiser; when mixed together the two will help you get rid of any excess facial hair too.

How to go about it:

Start by adding 2 tablespoons of sugar and lemon as well as 1 ½ tablespoon of raw honey. Heat it up for couple of minutes, and allow it to cool down.

Then, gently apply this thick solution onto your facial hair. Using a waxing strip, pull the hair in opposite direction.

Voila! Now, you are sans facial hair!
