Women have a complicated relationship with body hair. They spend endless hours shaving, waxing, or getting laser treatment, which does not make it any easier for them and can be costly as well. If you are not sure about undergoing these unnatural ways to get rid of the body hair, then all you need to do is carefully look inside your kitchen cabinets.
Below are 3 ways to get rid of body hair naturally by using ingredients available at home:
Raw Papaya Paste & Turmeric:
Papaya contains the enzyme papain which helps reduce hair growth. Whereas, turmeric contains antioxidants to fight bacteria and thus works best for sensitive skin. All you need is to mix 1 cup of mashed raw papaya with 2 tbsp of turmeric powder. Apply on your face and body and wash it off after 15-20 minutes. Do it regularly for 3 months.
Potato & Lentils (Moong Daal) Paste:
Potatoes have acidic properties that reduce hair growth. When mixed with lentils, this paste pulls out unwanted hair with absolutely no side effects. Soak a cup of moong daal overnight and grind it to a paste. To this, add the juice of one potato, a tbsp of honey, and 6 drops of lemon juice. Apply all over your body and face and rub off after 20 minutes.
Sugar, Honey & Lemon:
Honey acts as a natural moisturizer while sugar helps remove dead skin cells by exfoliating the skin. When combined, they form a waxy substance that helps in removing hair right from the follicles. Mix 1 tbsp of each sugar, lemon, and honey and heat till it turns into a wax. Add some water if needed and apply this to your body. Cover the area with a waxing strip. Pull off in the direction opposite to hair growth.
