You might be shocked to learn that you can remove fine hairs with ingredients that you use in your food everyday! Turmeric is a superfood that not only boosta immunity, but also to remove facial hairs.
All you need to do is mix a few spoons of turmeric powder with a little bit of milk to create a thick paste.

Next, use a clean cloth to scrub that area in circular motions and you will see the hair being removed! Do this regularly, and you will see your hairs growing back slower and finer.
The process of ‘sugaring’ is similar to waxing, except it’s much less painful. Heat 2 cups of white sugar, ¼ cup lemon juice and ¼ cup water and mix it in a saucepan over a high flame. Make sure your skin is cleansed and dry and apply the sugaring paste on the area you want to remove hair from. After a minute or so, remove the paste in the same direction of hair growth et voila! Your hairs will be gone. Just go over it a few times and then oil the skin, you will feel much better than waxing!
