  1. Papaya and turmeric

Remove Unwanted Body Hair

Papaya can help break down hair follicles and also stop hair growth fast. It has an enzyme in it called papain which allows that to be possible. Using this method is a double benefit to you because, as it takes away the hair from your body, it adds some tenderness to your skin and improves its texture. It is the best remedy for those who have sensitive skin.    

What you need

  • Raw pawpaw
  • Half teaspoon turmeric powder

Process

Blend some peeled papaya. All you need it two tablespoons of the paste. Add a half teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix well to give a fine paste. Apply the mixture to your face (or affected area) and give it a 15 minute light massage. Rinse off with water. Repeat this procedure weekly to help you keep hair away from growing in that area.   

Peel papaya and blend some in your blender until you have about two tablespoons. Mix ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder in with the papaya until you have a smooth paste. Put this paste on your face and massage it in lightly for about 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with clear water. This mixture will lighten the hair on your skin so you can then go ahead to wax or shave it off. Applying the mixture at least once a week should keep most the hair from growing back for a long time.   

  1. Egg mask

This egg Mask method works even better than waxing if correctly done and used. It is also effortless to do. Immediately the egg white dries out; it gives a waxing effect because of how strong it becomes. The cornstarch plays the role of a thickener so that the mixture works even on the most stubborn hair you might have.   

What you need

  • One egg white
  • One tablespoon cornflour
  • One tablespoon sugar

Process

Mix these items: one egg white, one tablespoon corn flour and one tablespoon sugar. Whisk all three up to form a smooth paste. Apply your mixture where the unwanted hairs are and leave it there to dry. You’ll know it’s well dried when it gives a white glue appearance. Once it’s properly dried, pull off the mask and watch your hair come out with the mask. Make sure you give it a firm pull while removing.


  1. Turmeric Wipe

Remove Unwanted Body Hair

Here is an adequate remedy for hair in small areas.

What you need

  • Turmeric
  • Water
  • Washcloth

Process

Form a paste with turmeric and water, apply it to the small area and leave to dry. Dip a washcloth inside warm water and wipe off the mixture from your skin. The hair should go off with the dry mix.  

  1. Sugar, Honey, and Lemon

Remove Unwanted Body Hair

A heated sugar will give you a thick consistency similar to wax, right?  That is why sugar and honey make an excellent remedy for hair removal, and they are even more affordable. Lemon in this recipe will help bleach the hair and make it less visible.  

What you need

  • sugar : 1 tablespoon 
  • honey: 1 tablespoon 
  • lemon juice: 1 tablespoon 
  • Waxing cloth

Process

In a metal bowl, mix a tablespoon each of honey, sugar and lemon juice and place it over heat (double boiler) till the sugar dissolves and the entire mixture looks like a wax-like paste. If your paste comes out too thick, you can add little water, and if too thick, you can add cornstarch to thicken it up.

Rub some cornstarch to the skin you want to remove hair from, so your mixture doesn’t cling to your skin. For better results, the hair should have been trimmed for about ten days before your waxing day. Now, it is time to apply the mixture to your skin. Make sure you follow the direction of the hairs as you apply. Use a wooden spoon to apply rather than your hands.

Place a waxing cloth on the skin immediately you apply your mixture. Pat it and let it dry and harden. Afterward, you should rip off the cloth from your skin. Voila! You have a hairless skin.

You shouldn’t expect this method to be as effective as the regular waxing method. But, continuous use of the technique for about two to three times in a week should give you the best results you seek.
