Conventional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing can leave smooth skin irritated, bumpy and unpleasant to look at. Instead, opt for a natural body hair remover.
Natural body hair removers tend to have a gentle, abrasive ingredient, a toner and a liquid to hold the ingredients together. They also tend to be painless or nearly so, although an exception to this is homemade wax.
Natural body hair removers may be based around turmeric, which can cause hair to stop growing completely over time, or sugar, which creates a sticky substance that will pull hair out when it sets.
Turmeric powder removes hair gently once the paste of turmeric, besan and milk or yogurt dries and is rubbed off. It leaves skin bright and toned. Sugar waxes pull the hair out like regular waxes.
Natural hair removal will usually remove hair immediately. Over time–generally about three months–turmeric removal options will thin hair, slow regrowth and even halt hair growth all together if you use them two to three times each week.
Natural body hair removers should be kept away from eye and genital areas. Always test homemade hair removal remedies on the inside of the wrist or elbow before using them to make sure that they will not irritate your skin.
