5 At-Home Ways To Take Care Of Unwanted Hair
Dealing with unwanted hair can be stressful. Most people turn to conventional ways of removing it, but these can be expensive and time consuming, and worst of all, they are not always effective treatments for unwanted hair. Thankfully, there are natural ways that you can treat and remove unwanted hairs right in the comfort of your own home. If you are looking for the best options to help you get rid of facial hair or hair anywhere else, we have 5 highly effective ways of doing so.
This is one of the easiest and most effective ways of removing unwanted hair, especially on your face. You will need papaya paste, which can be found in health food stores or ethnic stores (or you can do it yourself by peeling and mashing papaya) and turmeric powder. Mix about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the papaya with 1/2 of a teaspoon of turmeric. Massage this on your face or wherever the unwanted hairs are for about 15 minutes, then wash it off. You should do this about two times a week for the best results.
This is another great option that costs very little and takes just a short time to make. You will need 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of honey, 1/2 a lemon, and 1 tsp of tea tree oil or chamomile oil. This is about 8 to 10 drops of oil. Mix all of this together in a pot and allow to warm on the stove. You should be able to spread it easily, but be sure that you allow the mixture to cool a bit before applying it to your skin. Clean the area on which you will be spreading the paste and then sprinkle a bit of cornstarch on your skin. This helps make the area dry, making it easier to get the effect you want. Spread the mixture on top of the cornstarch and press a piece of cloth on top. After about 5 minutes, quickly rip off the cloth. It works like a session of waxing but without the expense!
