This should be done once in a few days for a couple of weeks.
Turmeric which is usually used as an active ingredient in beauty regimes cleanses the skin thoroughly and milk which has lactic acid in it tends to exfoliate the skin and moisturize it. Together they help in removing the upper lip hair naturally.
2) Egg White
Ingredients- 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon cornflour, and 1 teaspoon sugar
Steps- Mix all the three ingredients together; whisk it until it forms a thick paste. Apply this paste on the upper lip area, let it dry for 30 minutes and then peel it off. On using it twice a week, within a month you will notice a reduction in the growth of upper lip hair.
Egg white has enzymes that dislodge the hair follicles from its base and also soothes the skin, thus helping in naturally removing the upper lip hair.
3) Chana Dal Flour
Ingredients- 1 tablespoon chana dal flour, a pinch of turmeric and some water
Steps- Mix all the ingredients together and blend it well. The paste that you get after blending the ingredients, apply it on your upper lip area and wait for it to dry. Once it is dry, scrub it off in the direction opposite to the hair growth. This will ensure that the upper lip hair gets removed gently.
