Bodily hair is normal, true, but if the hair on your upper lip is making you feel embarrassed because of it, you’ve probably reserved a date with your stylist over the weekend. Using a razor does help remove the hair on your upper lip but there is a much better way to get rid of these unwanted hairs that are making you look like a guy in a more natural way. Here are a few steps that you should try out.
Turmeric and milk
In this recipe, you will need a tablespoon each of milk or water and turmeric. Combine the two in a small bowl thoroughly then apply it evenly on your upper lip. Let it sit for half an hour or until it has dried. Rub gently before washing it off. You will need to do this once every few days for a few weeks until you get the desired results. Turmeric and milk have been used in ancient skin care rituals and have been found to be effective in removing hair as well as nourishing and hydrating the skin.
Sugar and honey
You can also get rid of the hair on your upper lip by making your own homemade wax. You’ve probably tried this for removing the hair on your legs and have seen the results. Well, you can do the same thing to your upper lip. You see sugar is an exfoliating agent which means that it can help remove unwanted hair. As for the honey, it is a known natural moisturizer which helps keep your skin well-hydrated. Combine a tablespoon of honey with 3 tablespoons of sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it up for a few minutes then add a teaspoon of lemon juice before mixing. Apply the solution on your upper lip then pull it off in the direction of your hair growth. And you’re done!
This is another simple, natural remedy that will help you remove the hair on your upper lip without spending a lot of money in the process. For this mixture, you will need a teaspoon of sugar and cornstarch plus an egg white. Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl then whisk to create a paste. Apply the paste on your upper lip and leave it until it has dried. This can take up to half an hour or so. Peel it off afterwards. You can do this twice a month to keep the hair on your upper lip at bay.
Another trick to making the hair from your upper lip disappear is gram flour. What’s great about this ingredient is that it has a slightly coarse texture to it that makes it a great exfoliating agent. Another reason why gram flour is actually good for removing facial hair is that it can help remove any clogging on your pores too. To prepare this recipe, you will need a tablespoon of gram flour and you will need to mix it with ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder in a small bowl. Add a little milk or water so that you will be able to make a paste. You will need to apply it on your upper lip and allow to dry. Scrub the paste gently once it has dried using wet fingers against the direction of hair growth. Rinse afterwards with cool water. This must be done twice a week.
As you can see, removing the hair on your upper lip doesn’t have to be that difficult to do nor even require you to go to a trip to your local spa or hair salon to have it removed. With just a few ingredients, you will be able to clean your upper lip from unwanted hair in a safe and natural way.
