While facial hair is normal, sometimes hormonal changes can make it a little more unsightly than usual. Moreover, removing facial hair not only helps to exfoliate your skin, but a hairless face also promotes better absorption of products and application of makeup.

So see, there are quite some advantages of removing facial hair. But what option should you go for? While there are many products available across markets, ranging from facial wax strips to facial razors, they aren’t always safe. Instead, if you are too sceptical about using these products on your face, then you can very well switch to some natural remedies that can help you achieve the same results. 

Here are 3 easy ways to get the results you want:

1. Honey and sugar

Take about one tablespoon of honey, two tablespoons of sugar and one tablespoon of water and make a paste. Then, microwave it to dissolve the sugar better, and your peel mask is ready. You can apply this mask wherever you have unwanted hair. You can take a cotton strip and pull it off in the opposite direction, just like how you wax other parts of the body.

While the sugar in it mildly exfoliates your skin and removes dead cells, honey nourishes and heals your skin, and very efficiently removes all the unwanted hair.

2. Gram flour and rose water

Gram flour or besan has been used as a part of the beauty regime, since ages, and it has often been recommended by our dadis and nanis. The exfoliating nature of besan and the other benefits of rose water are considered to inhibit the growth of hair, when used regularly.

All you have to do is take equal amounts of gram flour and rose water, and then add a few drops of lemon juice to it. Mix well and apply it on your face. Let it dry and then rub it off with your fingers to remove the facial hair. You can repeat this method twice or thrice a week.

3. Oatmeal and banana

Oatmeal is just not healthy for your body but also for your skin. From clearing your acne to improving your skin texture, oats can do so much for you! It can even help in removing that unwanted facial hair. Because of the grainy texture of the oatmeal, it acts as an excellent exfoliating agent that helps remove dead cells, blackheads and facial hair too.

Suitable for all skin types, you can prepare this by mixing two tablespoons of oatmeal with one ripe banana. Then, apply this paste on your skin and massage it for a few minutes. Keep it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with water. Doing this regularly can help get rid of facial hair naturally.

However, since these are all-natural remedies, they do take time to show results, so patience is the key!
