For centuries, turmeric has been used in ayurvedic medicine for various ailments, but it has also been used for beauty remedies, including the removal of body hair.
Turmeric can be used for unwanted facial hair, as well as hair on other parts of the body, such as the underarms, arms and legs. There are different methods for turmeric use, which is dependent upon whether the hair you’re trying to remove is dense or thin.
The way turmeric works is by slowing down hair growth. So over time, with continued use, you will notice that your hair won’t grow back as quickly and will eventually stop growing altogether. This is how it has gained recognition as being an all-natural permanent hair removal solution.
Using turmeric and sea salt for facial hair removal
You’ll need 5 tbsp of sea salt and 6 tbsp of ground turmeric. Taking 5 tbsp of milk (nut or animal) or rose water, add it to the powder mix until it creates a paste. Before applying the mixture, wash your face with a natural soap, like black soap or coconut soap. Then pat dry using a towel.
Apply the mix to the area where you want hair removed. Then allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off with cool water. Use witch hazel to help remove the yellow staining the turmeric will cause.
Now, repeat this process daily for at least a week. You can store the remaining mixture in the refrigerator.
Removing dense hair with turmeric
For hair that is more dense, you’ll want to add to the above mix either ground oats or gram flour. It should be applied in the same manner as the above remedy. Use it for at least eight days to see noticeable results.
It’s common to begin seeing hair fall out within a couple of days. This remedy isn’t the fastest, but it is all-natural and safe, compared to laser hair removal and chemical products. If you’re battling female facial hair, you should also consider making changes to your diet that will boost estrogen and lower testosterone.
