Home remedies to Remove Facial hair
It is safe to use a natural home remedy to remove facial hair. But are all the herbal products safe? Can you apply anything to your face? A big no.
The skin on the face is sensitive enough to react with not-fit products. You may experience side effects like redness, rashes, pimples, etc.
To avoid all these, choose one of the safe home remedy options we suggest to you. And one thing that you have to keep in your mind is, whatever remedy you choose, after washing your face, apply cream or moisturizer.
Not only one option, but you get many to combine with gelatine to remove your facial hair. Gelatine has protein and amino acids that prevent wrinkles, stretch marks, and pimples. It also brightens up the skin. Now, see what all combinations you can make out of gelatine.
1. Gelatine, Raw Milk, and Honey
Add raw milk and a quarter spoon of honey to the gelatine powder and mix well. Apply it on the face and leave it for 30 mins to dry. We use raw milk, not boiled, because raw milk has nutrients. If we boil, it will lose its nutrients.
Milk works as a toner or moisturizer and a hydrating agent. And also it works as an exfoliator by cleansing your face. It has protein, vitamins, and lactic acid.
2. Gelatine, milk, and Lavender oil
Lavender oil opens up the pores and reduces inflammation. Add three drops of lavender oil to the unflavoured gelatine and milk mixture and heat it a little. Stop heating when it gets warm.
Apply it to your skin and as soon as it dries, wash your face with cold water.
3. Gelatine, milk, and Lemon juice
People use lemon juice to reduce skin damage. It prevents wrinkles and dark circles.
- Add 2 tsp gelatine, 4 tsp milk, a few drops of lemon, and mix well. Warm it and apply it to the face in the direction of hair growth.
- But, do not apply this one if you have sensitive skin as lemon is acidic, which might cause you redness and dryness.
- Tip: Keep a warm cloth on your face before applying a mixture as it will open up the pores and allow easy hair removal.
Sebum is an oily substance produced out of your skin to protect itself. And gram flour helps remove excess sebum from your skin and opens up the pores.

1. Gram flour, coconut oil, and rose water
Mix up 2 tsp of each of them and make a paste. Apply to the skin and keep for 10 to 20 mins to let it dry. Rub it off in the opposite direction of hair growth.
Wash your face, and do not use soap or face wash immediately after removing the mixture.
2. Green gram, lemon juice, and rose water
Add 1 tsp of rose water and lemon to 3 tsp of gram flour. Apply to the hairy areas of the face and let it dry. Rub it off later and wash your face.

The way gram flour absorbs the excess oil from your skin. Honey does the same work, not letting your skin dry.
