  • 1. Turmeric

    Turmeric powder, in combination with various other ingredients, is known to slow down the growth of facial hair and eventually stop it from re-growing. When a paste of turmeric and yogurt is regularly applied, it reduces the growth of hair. This method is particularly effective if started at a young age. Also Turmeric is a powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine, and has manyhealth benefits.

  • 2. Gram flour

    Another effective hair removal method is the use of gram flour paste. A mixture of gram flour, turmeric, and lemon juice or fresh cream can be applied to the skin. Once the paste has dried, a washcloth dipped in warm water can be used to rub it off in circular motions.

  • 3. Sugar wax

    This is a natural version of the wax used in beauty salons, albeit much safer and better for the skin. It is made by heating a mixture of sugar, lemon, and water until the sugar melts and turns brown. This concoction should be used while it is still hot. After applying a moderately thick layer on the skin, a muslin cloth or a commercially available waxing strip should be placed on the area to be waxed. This strip should be pulled in the direction opposite to that of hair growth.

  • Another type of natural wax that can be used is honey wax. This is a mixture of honey, lemon, and sugar heated in a similar way. However, this is more expensive to make than sugar wax.

  • 4. Pumice stone

    Scrubbing the skin regularly with a pumice stone is a slow but an effective method to reduce the growth of unwanted facial hair. But this may not be good for sensitive skins.

  • 5. Spearmint tea

    This remedy is effective if the growth of unwanted hair is due to excessive production of testosterone. A cup or two of spearmint tea made by soaking fresh spearmint leaves in hot water has been shown to reduce the levels of testosterone, thereby reducing the growth of hair. For results to show, this brew should be drunk every day.
