3 Best Hair Removal Home Remedies


Hi Carrie,

Permanent hair removal creams, lotions and gels are great alternatives when laser hair removal is too expensive. You can find a vast variety of hair removal products in the market; there are different depilatory creams for different skin types and some of them are perfumed while some are not. Simply choose one that is suitable for your skin type. Popular brands such as Veet, Nair, and Revitol are generally safe if used properly according to package directions.

However, there are a few important things you be aware of. Certain people, particularly those with sensitive skin, react badly to the harsh chemicals in hair removal products so remember to do a patch test to get the best results. Apply the cream on a small area (forearm hair) for 7-8 minutes. Look out for any signs of allergies – rash, burning sensation, irritation or any discomfort. Stop using the cream immediately if you've any type of reaction.

That being said, there are many skin-friendly, non-chemical homemade hair removal products you can make to remove unwanted hair safely. Try any of these home remedies for hair removal, and you'll be happy with the results – silky smooth skin, no ouch...


Homemade Hair Removal Recipes


Sugaring Hair Removal Recipe

Sugaring or sugar waxing is probably one of the best known home method to get rid of unwanted hair and has been used for centuries by Middle Eastern women. It's cheap, easy to prepare and the results are excellent. Sugaring can be used in practically all areas of the body including eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, legs, arms, and bikini line.

The ingredients needed are – 1 cup of regular granulated sugar, juice of ½ lemon, ¼ cup of honey, a drizzle of molasses (optional).


How to make sugaring paste for hair removal:

1. Combine sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Slowly add honey and blend well. Place in microwave and heat on high for 2-3 minutes. Sir in molasses, if using. You can also prepare it in a saucepan until the mixture reaches 250˚F. Let cool before you use.


2. Cover the area you want to treat with cornstarch. Using a spatula or popsicle stick, spread the mix over your skin, in the direction of hair growth. Place a cotton strip on it, press down firmly and then rip it off quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth.

Make sure the hairs are about ¼ inch long. If too short, you won't be able to pull them out. This homemade sugar paste can be reused. Simply keep in the fridge and reheat in microwave when you need it.
