5 Ways Natural Hair Removal

by Prod Solving on October 05, 2020

1. Hair removal using sugar wax

Weird, but it works!

Sugar wax has been used around the world for many years, but it's only recently become popular in the UK.

What exactly is sugar wax? Exactly what it says on the tin...only there is no tin because it's completely homemade. In fact, you can whip up your own sugar wax at home using:

  • 200g sugar
  • 60ml lemon juice
  • 60ml water

Before you get started, check out our tips for waxing above. Even with a natural, at-home method, the same tips still apply. 

Method:

  1. Add the ingredients to a saucepan on the hob, and stir to combine. Begin to heat, slowly bringing the mixture to a boil.
  2. Once it boils, simmer the ingredients on a low to medium heat, stirring frequently. Once the mixture has turned golden brown in colour, it's time to remove the pan.
  3. Pour the ingredients into a jar and leave to cool for around 30 minutes.
  4. Spoon some of the wax into your hands, and roll it into a ball.
  5. Make sure the area of skin you want to remove hair from is clean and dry, then begin to spread the wax over it.
  6. Let it sit for a minute, then lift a corner of the sugar wax (enough to give you a good grip).
  7. Get ready...and rip the wax off in the opposite direction of your hair growth.
  8. Post-waxing, clean the area to remove any residue.

2. Natural hair removal at home using a pumice stone

Have you ever tried this?

Turns out there's another use for your pumice stone that doesn't involve feet at all (unless you have very hairy feet that is!) - natural hair removal.

The rough texture of pumice stone is great for catching hairs and removing them from your skin. Better yet? This is a 100% natural hair removal remedy.

To try it yourself, use a dry pumice stone on clean, dry skin in small circular motions. The pores will cling onto hairs and pull them out.

Be sure to moisturise afterwards, as the texture of a pumice stone also provides an exfoliating effect and may leave the skin dry.

3. Natural hair removal remedy using egg

We bet you already have eggs in the fridge!

Want to remove facial hair naturally? Eggs are not only extremely nutritious, but they have some useful properties when it comes to beauty, too.

Perhaps you've seen egg dry before and noticed how it creates a film-like substance on the surface it sets on. It's this power you're going to harness when using egg for hair removal.

To try it yourself, you'll need:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cornflour

Method:

  1. Mix the ingredients together to combine, then apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin.
  2. Leave the mixture to set on your face (around 15-20 minutes). It should form a film.
  3. Begin to peel the mask off from the out in. The mask will not only extract impurities, but it will also lift light facial hair.

Eggs are an inexpensive and gentle way of treating unwanted facial hair. It's especially popular for getting rid of that unwanted peach fuzz above your upper lip. Why not give this natural hair removal remedy a try today?

4. Remove unwanted hair using papaya paste

If you're looking for a long-term solution, you may want to consider Papaya.

A study by the International Journal of Pharmaceutics found that the enzyme called papain has a "depilatory" (hair removing) effect. This enzyme is found inside Papaya. Although it won't remove hair overnight, it could reduce regrowth over time. 

Sound too good to be true? Try this natural hair removal remedy at home and see the results for yourself.

You'll need:

  •  1-2 tbsp mashed, raw papaya flesh
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder

Method:

  1. Mix together the papaya and turmeric to form a paste.
  2. Rub onto the skin liberally, massaging the mixture in so it reaches hair follicles.
  3. Leave for 15 minutes.
  4. Wash off with water.
  5. Repeat regularly to see a reduction in hair growth (2-3 times per week).

Papaya not only smells delicious but could be a permanent solution to your unwanted body hair too. Who'd have thought it!

5. How to remove hair at home using turmeric

Could this everyday spice help with your facial hair?

Turmeric is a bright yellow, fragrant spice, often found in Indian recipes. 

Outside of the kitchen, Indian women have used it for many years for all sorts of natural beauty remedies. One such remedy is the removal of unwanted facial hair, and it's surprisingly easy to do!

We know what you're thinking... does Tumeric really remove hair permanently? A 2017 study in Phytomedicine found that curcuma, the active ingredient in turmeric, slowed hair growth and lightened the skin.

Want to try this DIY?

  1. Mix 3 tsp turmeric powder with 1 tsp milk.
  2. Spread the paste onto the area of skin with unwanted facial hair in the same direction as hair growth.
  3. Leave until dry (about 20 minutes).
  4. Add a small amount of water to hands, wet the paste slightly, and begin to scrub the skin using small, circular motions.
  5. Wash with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Like papaya, turmeric paste must be used regularly to reduce the rate of hair growth over time. Keep at it, and you'll be facial-hair free before you know it.
