5 Ways To Get Rid Of Facial Hair Naturally ( The best ways)
Our simple home remedies have been tried and tested, and you’ll find that they’re surprisingly effective. Using them can teach you how to remove ingrown facial hair, get rid of that moustache, or trim those whiskers.
1. Homemade Wax
Did you know that you can make your own wax at home? You don’t need to buy wax from the store, but you can prepare your own using a few simple ingredients you’ll find in your kitchen.
How it’s done:
Pour two tablespoons of sugar into a microwave safe bowl or container, and add in a tablespoon of honey and water each.Place the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds, or heat it in a double boiler on the stove.
Boil it until the sugar dissolves and mixes with the liquids.
You will end up with a thick, waxy substance.
Use a spatula or wax applicator to stir the wax, and apply it to the parts of your face with the facial hair you want to eliminate.
Place a strip of cloth over the freshly applied wax, let it cool for a couple of seconds, then pull.
The wax will rip out the hair, leaving your face fresh and clean.
If the homemade wax cools, place it back in the double boiler, or heat it in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds.
Repeat until your face is free of hair!
2. How to Get Rid of Facial Hair: Egg White Mask
Eggs are packed with protein, meaning they are wonderful for your skin! They will provide the nutrients your skin needs to produce collagen, which will keep it fresh and young. Plus, egg white is beautifully sticky when it dries, and an egg white mask will stick to any facial hairs. When you rip it off, it will pluck hairs with all the ruthless efficiency of store-bought wax!
How it’s done:
Drop the white of 1 egg into a bowl, and mix in a tablespoon of regular table sugar and half a tablespoon of cornstarch. Beat the mixture until it the paste is nice and smooth.
Apply the paste to your face, and let it sit for a few minutes–until dry. The paste will harden into a thick mask, which you can literally grab and RIP off.
Just be careful not to hurt your skin as you pull. A quick rip will pluck the hairs without damaging your skin.
3. How to Get Rid of Facial Hair: Papaya and Turmeric
Papaya contains papain, an enzyme that breaks down the hair follicles — preventing them from re-growing more hairs. Applying papaya to your face will help to inhibit hair growth, making it easier for you to keep your chin whiskers, sideburns, or moustache under control.
Adding turmeric into the mix makes the papaya more effective. The stable compounds in turmeric will help to
kill off the hairs, preventing their regrowth.
How it’s done:
Use a spoon to scoop out a few chunks of raw papaya flesh.
Add in half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, and use a fork to mash and mix the ingredients together. You should end up with a thick paste.
Using your fingers, apply the paste to the parts of your face with unwanted hair.
Massage your skin gently to ensure that the paste is absorbed into your hair and skin.
Let it sit for 15 minutes before washing off with warm water.
Repeat the process once every two weeks or so, and you’ll notice your facial hair disappearing on its own!
4. How to Remove Facial Hair Naturally: Gelatin Face Mask
You’ll need unflavoured gelatin, but you’ll find that the gelatin face mask does a great job of eliminating unwanted hair. By adding lemon juice, you bleach any hairs that aren’t removed by the mask. The lavender essential oil will help to soften your skin and reduce any risk of irritation.
How it’s done:
In a bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of whole milk with a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin powder. Squeeze in a couple of drops of lemon juice, along with 1 drop of lavender essential oil. Place the mixture in the microwave for no more than 20 seconds.
The mixture will be a bit hot, but you will need to apply it directly to your face after you remove it from the microwave. Let it sit on your face for 5 minutes. Be warned: the mixture will stick VERY quickly.
Be careful only to apply it to areas with facial hair you want to remove — ergo, keep it away from your eyebrows and eyelashes.
After 5 minutes, you can simply peel the gelatin mask off with your fingers. It won’t just eliminate facial hair, it can also help to get rid of blackheads and dead skin cells!
5. How to Remove Facial Hair Permanently at Home: Sugaring
This is an ancient hair removal method that WORKS! If you have sensitive skin that is prone to redness, this could be the best natural option for hair removal.
How it’s done:
Place a quarter cup of water in a stockpot or saucepan, and place the pot on the stove.
Once the water is hot, add a ¼ cup of lemon juice and 2 cups of regular table sugar (white or brown, it doesn’t matter).
Mix and continue heating until the mixture begins to bubble, then turn the fire to low and let it simmer.Turn it off once the mixture turns an amber color.
Remove the pot from the stove and let it cool slightly.
As the mixture is cooling, apply a dusting of baby powder or cornstarch to your skin.
This will prevent the mixture from sticking to your skin, reducing irritation.
Apply the slightly cooled paste to your face, going in the opposite direction to the hair. Place a cotton strip or a clean cloth over the paste.
Let it sit for a few minutes, until the paste has hardened. Rip it off by pulling in the direction of your hairs. Repeat until all facial hair has been removed.
