Having thick and visible hair growth on the face can be quite annoying. While you may have used turmeric as a scrub or face mask to get glowing and healthy skin have you ever used it to get rid of facial hair? Yes, you read that right.
This beneficial ingredient never fails to impress! Plucking, shaving, waxing and other methods of getting rid of facial hair are a thing of the past because we’ve found a solution that will do the trick, minus the pain. Here’s how you can use turmeric to get rid of facial hair…
Turmeric and gram flour scrub
You will need:
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon gram flour
- 2 tablespoon milk
Step 01: In a bowl, mix turmeric, milk and gram flour together to form a thick paste
Step 02: Apply it using your fingers or brush in the direction of hair growth on your face
Step 03: Now gently scrub in the opposite direction of hair growth, this will ensure the facial hair falls out from the roots
Step 04: Allow it to stay for 10 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water.
How it works:
Gram flour has exfoliating properties and turmeric paste acts like a mild glue that sticks to the facial hair. While scrubbing the facial hair gets uprooted easily and comes off along with the paste, leaving you with smooth, glowing and flawless skin.
Don’t forget to follow up with a moisturiser like the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Day Creme SPF 20 to keep your skin soft and supple.
