Ayurveda uses salt and turmeric (Haldi) as a home remedy to remove facial hair. The turmeric (Haldi) and salt slows hair growth and encourages the hair to fall out. The process is slower than chemical depilatories — taking several days — but it is also more gentle on the skin.
Add 5 tablespoons of sea salt and 6 tablespoons of ground turmeric (Haldi) to the air-tight container. Stir in 5 tablespoons of milk until it forms a paste.
Wash your face with mild soap, then pat it dry with a towel.
Apply the turmeric mixture generously to the areas of your face with unwanted facial hair. Massage in a circular motion for 15 to 20 minutes until it hardens and dries. Rinse your face with cool water. Store any unused turmeric mixture in the fridge for the next day.
Wipe toner, or astringent, over the area to remove any staining. Tumeric may stain the skin yellow.
Repeat once a day for at least eight days. Store unused mixture in the refrigerator.
Consult your physician before embarking on self remedies for the skin.
