Although it’s difficult to remove hair permanently, there are several natural remedies that can help. The remedies you can see below can remove unwanted body hair in just under a month, but you need to try them all and see which works best for you.
Here are 6 great ways how to remove unwanted body hair naturally and permanently:
1. Raw Papaya
- 1 papaya
- Grated turmeric
Wash, peel and chop the papaya, then mash it with a fork. Now, grind a bit of turmeric and mix it with the papaya well, then apply the thick paste on the areas with unwanted hair. Massage it in slowly for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Don’t be afraid if your skin has turned yellow at the spot – it will go away in a few days.
For best results, experts recommend using the paste no more than twice a week. Once the hairs have turned pale, shave or wax the area. Let your skin recover for a day or two, then start using the paste again to prevent the growth of hairs in that area.
2. Turmeric, flour and sesame oil paste
- Powdered turmeric
- Sesame oil
- Gram flour
Mix a tablespoon of turmeric powder and gram flour, then add a bit of sesame oil – you should add just enough to create a paste. Now, rub the paste on the affected areas of your body, then leave it to work for 30 minutes before removing it with a cloth soaked in warm water. For best results, we suggest using the paste once or twice a week.
3. Lemon, honey, and sugar
- 1 lemon
This powerful remedy will remove all the unwanted hair from your body and prevent it from growing again. Mix a tablespoon of honey with the same amount of lemon juice and honey, then put it in a smaller bowl and put the bowl in a double boiler. This will warm up the liquid and transform it into a thick paste. Now, before using the remedy, apply a bit of cornstarch on the affected area, then apply the wax with a wooden spoon. Leave it to cool down and solidify, then take a cloth and rip off fast.
4. Potatoes and lentils
- A few potatoes
- Red lentils
- Lemon juice
Let the red lentils soak in water overnight, then mix them in a blender when you get up. Do the same with a potato, then add a tablespoon of honey and lemon juice in the mix. Apply the mixture on the affected areas, then rinse with water after 30 minutes.
5. Sugar and lemon
Lemon juice contains a lot of vitamin C which will rejuvenate your skin while also boosting the collagen and elastin production. Here’s what you need to do:
Squeeze a lemon and mix 2 tablespoons of the juice with a ½ a cup of warm water and 2 tablespoons sugar. Apply the mixture on your body and leave it to work its magic for about 20 minutes, then remove it with warm water. This remedy will peel your skin gently and remove all the unwanted hairs. For best results, you should use it twice a week.
6. Cornstarch and eggs
- 1 egg
- A bit of sugar
Break the egg in a bowl, whisk it, then add the cornstarch and sugar and mix well. Apply the thick paste on the affected areas and leave it to dry off, then peel it off like a mask.
