Low on pain and high on results, try these tips to get rid of facial hair better known as peach fuzz. I for one was very conscious in school about my growing moustache but not anymore. However, for clear skin, I recommend these hacks:
Turmeric to the rescue: We may have taken turmeric for granted just because it’s been a part of Indian households…but the truth is much bigger. Turmeric has multiple benefits and one of them is to remove facial hair.
All you need is 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder. Mix it with water to apply a thin paste on face and neck. Apply it a second time on areas like your forehead, upper lip and chin area. Wash off with cool water. Use it at least once a week to see a difference.
Gelatin it is: Gelatin has become an at home favourite for blackhead removals, and when combined with the right ingredients, can help get rid of peach fuzz. Since you’re getting rid of hair straight from the follicle this DIY may be a little painful (nothing major like waxing).
You need 1 tablespoon gelatin (unflavoured), 2 tablespoons milk, 2 drops of lavender essential oil and half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl and then pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Apply on areas that need it; NOT on the entire face. Wait for it to dry completely and peel it off.
Sugar, yes please! Sugar is a great exfoliant, and that in combination with something as soothing as honey can be great for the skin. Use this DIY to get rid of small, facial hair, and also add a glow to your skin.
You need 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon organic honey, 1 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply the mixture of face and neck; let it dry and rinse it off with cold water. This will lighten your hair and remove hair with consistent usage.
LASER hair removal: I have had a lot of people ask me if LASER is a viable option. My answer is: it depends from person to person. If you have very dark hair on your chin or cheeks, and that takes a toll on your self -esteem, then I think LASER hair reduction is a good option. It’s recommended by most dermatologists and is safe for most people. Just be sure you go to an expert, not a salon, and follow the regime as told by the doc.
It is a one-time expense: so if it means lesser salon visits and more power to you, I am all for it!
