We all have fine facial hair that imparts darker hue to complexion, and their removal can make your face look smoother and brighter. So, let us see how to get rid of these fine facial hair naturally. However, if you have thicker, darker and coarser hair, then please read this article and consult a doctor to evaluate any underlying hormonal imbalance on your skin. Well before we proceed to recipes, I must share that the hair growth takes time to respond, therefore, try these remedies for at least three months before judging the response.

Remedy 1: Rub Raw Papaya Peel

Science: Papain enzyme is an active component of papaya, and it is present highest concentration just underneath the peel of unripe green papaya. Experiments show that papain enzyme can inhibit hair growth ( Source).

How: Rub the peel of unripe green papaya on the skin gently for 1 minutes, leave the residue for 15 to 30 minutes and rinse. You can repeat this every day provided you do not get any side effects.

Precaution: Papain can irritate sensitive skin, discontinue if you get irritation, burning, rash or redness.

Benefits:

  • Reduces hair growth
  • Lighten your skin tone
  • Helps in exfoliation and repairs damaged skin.

 

Remedy 2: Chickpea flour and turmeric paste

Science:

There are references of above ingredient in Ayurveda and this paste was used as Ubtan in ancient India.

Rub this paste over unwanted hair and rinse off immediately or after 10-15 minutes. You use this daily provided it does not cause redness, burning or rash.

Benefits:

  • Reduces hair growth
  • Lighten your skin tone
  • Helps in exfoliation and repair of damaged skin.

Tip: This mixture can be used as a substitute for body wash just like Ubtan was used in ancient India for the bath. The chickpea flour mechanically exfoliates your skin and turmeric has anti-septic and skin healing benefits.

Precaution:

  • Store this mixture away from water; it will get spoiled if water gets into it.
  • Do not use lemon and yoghurt in sensitive skin.
  • This mixture can dry your skin, so apply moisturiser after rinsing if your skin is already dry.

My personal experience with above remedies: 

I have been rubbing papaya peels on my face along with using this chickpea flour and turmeric based face wash for last 2 years. I have noticed the fine hair growth on my face has reduced.
