All women have upper lip hair, but in some women these hairs are a bit or a lot darker than in others. In addition, some women can also suffer from a condition called hirsutism, due to which these women experience unwanted, male-pattern hair growth on body areas where men typically grow hair, like their face, back, and chest. This condition may be the result of hormonal imbalances, genetics, as well as due to other health issues.

If you have this condition, we beg you to stop being ashamed of yourself because you’re not alone – approximately 5-10 % of the female population has this condition.

Those of you whose lip hair is quite visible have probably tried almost every type of hair removal products. Perhaps some of these offer a somewhat temporary solution to your problem, but many of them may not work at all or may contain some harmful chemicals.

Some women choose a laser treatment to get a more permanent solution, but these treatments are quite expensive and not everyone can afford them. Also, the use of laser treatments is not a hundred percent harmless and can sometimes have certain unwanted effects.

Fortunately, there are many natural ways to remove hair that are completely harmless and will also save you a lot of the money you otherwise spend on expensive hair removal products. These recipes use simple ingredients that can be found in anyone’s kitchen and we sincerely suggest you to try some of them.

2- Ingredient Hair Removal Recipes

Recipe #1: Milk & Turmeric

To prepare this hair removal recipe you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder

Just combine the two ingredients in a clean bowl and stir well. Apply the resulting mixture to your upper lip area thoroughly and allow to dry. Wash off after 15 minutes. By washing this area, you will also close its skin pores.

Recipe #2: Water & Turmeric

For this second recipe you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric

This recipe is the same as the previous, except that it uses water instead of milk. Combine the two ingredients and apply to your upper lip. It will take a bit longer to dry out completely due to the water.

This recipe and the previous one should be used regularly, for at least one month, in order for you to get rid of unwanted hair forever.

Recipe #3: Egg White & Turmeric

To prepare this third hair removal recipe, you will need:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric

Combine the two ingredients so as to create a paste. Also, you can add one tablespoon of sugar to it to make it a facial scrub. Apply this paste to your upper lip and allow to dry. Afterwards, peel it off using water.

Do this at least two times a week, for a whole month, to obtain best results.

Recipe #4: Flour & Turmeric

To prepare this final recipe, you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric

Mix these ingredients together with one tablespoon of water. Apply the resulting mixture to your upper lip and allow to dry before rinsing it off. Rubbing the paste off in the opposite direction of hair growth may be helpful.

As you can see, there are various natural ways of facial hair removal. Even though so far you have used some of the most popular ways of hair removal, which include threading, waxing and using hair removal creams, we strongly advise you to stop using them and try these natural methods instead.

Threading and waxing can be very painful and cause redness, pimples, bleeding, and other skin damage in the area where hair is removed. On the other hand, hair removal creams are a completely painless option, however, many creams contain harmful chemicals that can cause skin irritation, allergic reactions, or even severe chemical burns.

For this reason, using completely natural hair removal methods is the best and safest way to get rid of unwanted hair.
