Natural Face Masks and Scrubs for Unwanted Facial Hair
Unwanted hair on a woman’s face? Yep! Actually, it’s common for women to have what’s commonly referred to as “peach fuzz” on certain parts of their face, according to Healthline. Getting rid of that hair does not have to be painful or require expensive visits to the salon. There are several home remedies that may just do the trick.
This mask, shown by Himani Wright in the video at the end of the article, is made from ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard. For this facial treatment you will need 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil, 3 tablespoons of wholemeal (whole wheat) flour and water.
Begin by massaging a layer of coconut oil into your skin. Cover all of your target areas. Mix a little water with your flour. You want the mixture to form a paste, so add the water slowly until you get the right texture. Apply the mixture downwards (in the direction of hair growth) and let it dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. Once it’s mostly dry, rub upwards and out.
Rinse with plain water. Close your pores using tea or toner and apply moisturizer.
Another alternative, is this oatmeal scrub from Home Remedies for Life. For this scrub, you’ll want to grind 1/2 teaspoon of oatmeal until coarse. Add six to eight drops of lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey to the oatmeal. Mix well and apply evenly over your entire face. Gently rub the oatmeal in circles for about 2 minutes and then let it set for 15 to 20 minutes. Rub up and out (against hair growth) and rinse with water.
You can repeat this scrub two or three times per week for maximum results.
Apricot and Honey
This simple recipe only take a minute to make and contains lots of vitamins and minerals that are great for your skin, according to Home Remedies for Life.
Grind 1/2 cup of dry apricots into a powder. Add one teaspoon of honey to the apricot powder and mix well. Apply this mixture to your face and allow it to sit for five to 10 minutes. After a few minutes, rub the mixture in circles, all over your face and scrub for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. You can repeat this up to four times per week.
You can use raw honey as a natural face mask. Simply apply a thin layer of honey to your face and allow it to sit for at least 3o minutes before rinsing with warm water, SheKnows recommends. Need a tougher clean? Add one part honey to two parts baking soda and use the mixture to exfoliate.
Women have hair on their faces and necks. It’s usually lighter and softer than men’s facial hair. It’s also completely natural. Feel free to let it be, but it you don’t like it, one of these natural remedies may be able to help you at a fraction of the cost of a salon treatment.
