Most makeup enthusiasts will agree life would be easier if there existed no peach fuzz and sideburns. After all, a clean canvas is what you need for a flawless base and that Insta-worthy skin work. The only problem? It requires too much effort and dependence on your parlour aunty. But does it really have to be that much work? The answer is “no”. The best way to remove facial hair is in the comfort of your home. And there are several DIY facial hair removal methods you can try to get that smooth, glabrous skin without stepping out. Here’s presenting the ultimate guide to getting rid of the fuzz—minus any fuss.
How To Remove Facial Hair
Coarse, fine, dark, and light—facial hair comes in all sizes, colours, and densities. Fortunately, these ten effective home remedies can take care of them all. Read on:
Buff It Off With Ubtan
In India, the gram flour-milk-turmeric paste is a go-to remedy for all skincare woes. But did you know that this wonder mixture can help with facial hair removal too? Start by mixing a teaspoon of gram flour, a pinch of turmeric, and two teaspoons of milk to create a viscous paste. Apply a thin layer on the face and let it dry. Now, gently rub your skin to remove the dried paste and you will see fine hair falling out along with it. Follow this regime twice a week for a glowing, hairless face in about two-three months.
Threading is one of the most common facial hair removal methods. This depilatory process involves cutting off the hair close to the skin’s surface using a sharp thread. You can do this at home only if your threading skills can give your parlour aunty a tough competition. Otherwise, you may end up with cuts. Also, don’t forget to apply some ice after threading to soothe the skin.
This is a great facial hair removal method. It involves plucking both coarse and fine hair with a pair of tweezers. It may be time-consuming and requires patience, but there are no burns, cuts, or mess involved. Additionally, you can easily remove the hair from the sensitive areas of the face like the eyebrows and upper lips with this method. Since the hair is plucked out from its root, it also takes more time to grow back and reappear on your face.
You can find different kinds of cold wax that are specially made for facial hair removal. They can be applied on the hairy patch, allowed to dry, and pulled off gently to remove facial hair. The catch, however, is that it may also pull out your sensitive skin and leave you with injuries and scars. To make it worse, since waxing stretches out the skin, you may end up getting wrinkles and fine lines. But if you prefer this method, our advice would be to do it only occasionally. Once done, immediately apply ice and a moisturiser to soothe the skin.
Here comes the safest, quickest, cheapest, easiest, and simply the best facial hair removal method. All you need to do is apply some shaving cream, hold the skin taut, and glide a sharp razor in the direction of the hair growth. If you use the right tool and the correct technique, you won’t end up with any cuts or burns. Again, the process is incomplete without the application of a generous amount of moisturiser to rehydrate and nourish the skin.
