Preparation is key


Th Before starting out, you will need to prep your skin. Ensure that your skin is super clean and free of bacteria, or any kind of make-up, and is completely dry so that you have a clean and smooth base to work on, to prevent the likelihood of cuts.


Home Remedies To Remove Facial Hair


1.    Tweezing

One of the best home remedies for hair removal is tweezing. It is an effective and inexpensive way to remove facial hair and works slightly differently than shaving. Instead of removing hair with a razor blade, tweezers are designed to pluck or pull hair from the roots. Although tweezing works on all areas and types of facial hair, it is particularly useful when shaping the eyebrows.

 
2.    Epilating

Epilating is similar to tweezing with the difference of using an electrical spinning wheel of tweezers to pull hair out of the roots, rather than doing so manually. This method is extremely effective and popular as one of the best facial hair removal methods for women. Epilating ensures the hair is taken out at the root so that it’ll take time to grow back and you can easily do it yourself with no need to go to a salon.

 
3.    At-home Waxing

When looking for home remedies to remove facial hair, waxing is another great alternative. It involves ripping the hair out at the root, which could be painful, but it leaves no chance of coarse stubble behind. Although waxing your own face can be tricky, it can surely be done with some practice. And one of the biggest advantages of waxing is that the more you do it, the finer your hair should become each time it grows back. 


4.    Laser Hair Removal

A big problem with many hair removal methods is that the results are temporary and only last a few weeks. For longer results, laser hair removal can be considered as one of the best methods to remove facial hair permanently. It is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light converted into heat to destroy the hair follicles. At-home laser hair removal kits are also available to get rid of facial hair permanently, which are easy and inexpensive. Although there is no natural permanent hair removal technique, by delaying hair growth for long periods, this is the best way to remove facial hair permanently at home. 


5.    Depilatory Creams

Hair removal creams or depilatory creams are a great option for removing patches of facial hair. Such hair removal creams, gels, and lotions affect the protein structure of hair, causing them to dissolve and be easily wiped away. Specially designed for facial hair removal, these creams also smooth, exfoliate, and moisturize the face for a wholesome experience. Depilatory creams are great for upper lip hair removal at home.


6.    Threading

Threading is another popular facial hair remover for women. It is most commonly used for eyebrow shaping since it allows you to be ultra-precise with which hairs you are removing. But, it can also be used on your upper lip, chin, and pretty much any other area on the face. This process involves the use of threads and can be painful for some people. 


7.    Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure done with a surgical scalpel or blade, where the top layer of skin is removed when the blade is dragged across the face at an angle. One of the home remedies to remove facial hair, this process stimulates the skin tissue and removes fine facial hair that can trap excess dirt and oil. The result is a smooth and brighter looking skin tone. 


8.    Facial Bleach

If you are concerned with the fact that you have dark hair growth on your face or upper lip, and not exactly the amount of hair growth, then facial bleach could be the answer for you. It is a common solution to solve the problem of facial hair in the elderly. 


9.    Shaving

Shaving is one of the fastest and easiest ways for facial hair removal in the elderly. It is a pain-free way to remove facial hair, but not ideal. There is always a risk of dark stubble left behind, or a skin rash and there is a probability that the hair will grow back more thickly, since the blade lifts and cuts hair only at the skin’s surface.

 

If you feel like removing your fac  ial hair, go for it, but not as an attempt to impress someone else. You are beautiful the way you are and using the ideas above you will be able to easily remove any unwanted facial hair without damaging your skin.
