Showing up for those painful threading or waxing sessions can be quite a task at times. Some days, it’s a choc-a-block schedule that keeps you from showing up and other days, it’s plain laziness. Worse still, sometimes side-effects like burns and cuts could stop you from going for it. But what if we simply do away with this cumbersome routine and its afflictions altogether? Let’s look at a few ways to make upper-lip hair removal an easy-breezy DIY affair:
How To Remove Upper-Lip Hair At Home
Here’s are five ways to get rid of upper-lip hair at home:
The Good-Old Ubtan
There is hardly a skin problem that the good old mix of gram flour, turmeric, and yoghurt can’t solve. Yes, it can take care of your upper-lip hair removal woes as well. Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Mix a pinch of turmeric powder, one teaspoon of gram flour, and one teaspoon of yoghurt together.
Step 2: Apply the paste to the upper lip area, let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3: Once it dries, scrape it off gently with a cotton ball.
Along with dead skin, this all-natural remedy will remove the fine upper-lip hair too. You can repeat this process every week to get rid of your upper-lip hair completely.
Sticky sugar syrup is the perfect alternative to wax and can be used for painless upper-lip hair removal. Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: You can make your hair-removal paste by adding sugar to a heavy-bottom pan and heating it up.
Step 2: Add a few drops of lemon juice when the syrup starts becoming thicker.
Step 3: Cool it down and apply it to the upper lips. Put a piece of cloth on the area, gently apply pressure in a circular motion, and pull off the strip against the direction of the hair growth. Tada! You’re done.
Egg whites have a jelly-like texture which acts as an excellent peel-off mask once it dries. When applied to the upper lip area, it can act like a natural, less-sticky version of wax and remove the fine hair effortlessly.
