- Indian homes have numerous beauty recipes that include turmeric. These recipes not only prevent excessive hair growth but also lighten and exfoliate the skin.
Remove unwanted hair from face, arms and legs by applying a paste of 1 tbsp. of black gram flour with 1 tsp. of yogurt and a pinch or turmeric powder, recommends Hair-n-skin-care.com. Evenly apply to face, relax and allow it to dry. Once completely dried, gently scrub the paste off. Turmeric removes hair, sanitizes the face and adds glow. Apply baby or almond oil to soothe skin.
Gram flour is a natural cleanser and scrub, says Yogawiz.com. Using gram flour alone or with turmeric reduces hair growth.
Many mix turmeric powder with milk and add directly to face, arms and legs. A paste of raw turmeric along with rock salt also acts as hair inhibitor. Hairremoval.in recommends using 1/4 tsp. of turmeric powder mixed with the same amount of papaya powder, gram flour, 2 tsp. of mustard oil along with a couple of drops of essential oils, as a recipe to remove unwanted hair.
