Remove Unwanted Hair With Natural Ingredients

Do not put chemicals on your face to remove facial hair or chin hair! Chemicals can burn and cause severe irritation! Instead, use natural ingredients to remove stubborn hair growth.

The natural remedies discussed in this article are easy, and they contain antioxidants and vitamins that will also benefit your skin. There are several natural masks, pastes, and formulas that will help you to remove facial hair or chin hair. Experiment with the recipes to find the best natural hair remover for you. Try a remover with honey, lemon, egg whites, turmeric, and other refreshing ingredients.

Benefits of Using Natural Ingredients

Removing facial hair using natural ingredients has a soothing effect and can help you to keep your skin healthy since the ingredients are filled with vitamins and antioxidants. Your skin is the largest organ that your body has, and topical ingredients are readily absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This is much healthier than using a hair remover that is filled with chemicals and can burn you or cause severe damage to your skin.

  • When only a few stray chin hairs are present, it is easy to tweeze those hairs. Tweezing takes commitment, as you must tweeze often since the chin or facial hair will grow back more thickly than before.
  • Other options include shaving, but shaving can make the hair grow back thicker, and you might get more hair growth on your face or chin then you had before you shaved.
  • Expensive treatments include electrolysis and lasering the facial hair. Electrolysis takes more than one treatment for permanent hair removal. Lasering removers hair in one treatment but is expensive.
  • Spa or salon treatments include waxing or threading, and over time these treatments become very costly.
  • Use the following recipes to save your self some money when removing unwanted facial and chin hair. They will take the strain off of your wallet and are a healthy option for your face.
  • Also, for tips on how to remove age spots, learn about exfoliation for great skin.

Below, you'll learn to make a paste, a mask, and a sticky paste.

These methods work, but it is important to note that this will take time to work, so don't give up. These recipes can be used to remove unwanted hair up to two times per week. Try the honey recipe or the egg white recipe for coarse and stubborn hair.

The Paste

This is a simple recipe and works great as a scrub for your face to also remove dead skin cells and refresh clogged pores. The lemon will give your face a boost of vitamin C which is great for nourishing the skin and stimulating new growth. It helps make fine lines disappear.

  1. Mix sugar, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and water together until you form a paste. Add more sugar if the paste is too runny. (You may store extras in the fridge for a week to two weeks for the next use.)
  2. Apply the paste evenly to facial hair in the direction of hair growth, and leave on for 10 to fifteen minutes.
  3. Rinse off with warm water. May be used twice a week.

The Mask


  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon Juice
  • 4 tablespoons honey


  1. Mix together to form the mask.
  2. Apply to unwanted facial hair in the direction of the hair growth. Apply a thin layer.
  3. Let sit on face for 10 to 15 minutes or until tight.
  4. Remove with a warm washcloth.

If hair is stubborn, you can apply a think strip of cotton cloth to the mask after it has set and pull the hair off as if getting hair waxed in a salon. Pull from the opposite direction of hair growth in a quick and even pull to remove facial hair.

The Sticky Paste


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric


  1. Mix well in a small bowl. Apply to facial hair in the direction of hair growth.
  2. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes and wash off with warm water.

Turmeric provides anti-inflammatory benefits.

      Not sure what I did but about 5 days ago I tried cinnamon oil on my scalp, now this really burnt! After trying to soothe my burning scalp by shampooing several times, not only could I not shake the burning sensation, but the smell. It also seemed to remain on my hands and I rubbed my face and some problem skin areas with my fingertips. It did burn!

      The next day I plucked the hair on my chin, this usually grows back within the same day, 4 days later I have very little regrowth, what is there is much shorter and softer than usual, I will be looking for more of those little bottles of essential cinnamon oil and try again after these unexpected results!

      I tried the sticky paste recipe today and did exactly what the recipe called for and it did not work.

      Shaving and waxing do NOT cause more hair or thicker hair. Shaving cuts all hair at the same length and cause the hair to be blunt and grow back all together. Which makes it seem thicker.

      I have been using the honey And lemon mask for over a few months. It has lightened and soften my black stubborn chin hair. It works, but like this article states it's not a quick method. It takes time to see results. I started off three times a week and now down to twice a week. Once I get where I see less facial hair I will go to once a week. Besides, my fine lines and pours have diminished and I am happy with that. I will be trying the other two in between my honey mask.

      Strange, no comments regarding success or failure of method....??? Causes me to wonder if any of these methods do work.

      Great hub. I've been shaving my chin hair, on and off for years. I even had it waved a few times. I would try your lemon remedy this spring to end it for good.

      I have tried waxing and removal creme and it doesn't always work.

      I am a red head so i have really sensitive skin and blonde peach fuzz. I don't like having peach fuzz, obviously not a lot of people do, but i have it on my cheeks and would just like something that i can use on my entire face without having the side effects like irritation or burns. Do these remedies work? I am really nervous to try them out but i am also keen. Does anyone have experience with these remedies.

      Thank you ☺

      @jazziyarbrough: Thanks jazziyarbrough,

      I have been doing a lot of research about natural remedies for skin. I use organic coconut oil as a moisturizer and have thrown out all skin creams laden with parabens other unwanted chemicals. I hope this lens helped you.

      Too funny about your salon trip...the redness can get itchy, too, but it is worth it, at least to me!

      Some great tips here. Nice lens. I remember going to a salon with a friend to get our 'moustahes' done. I never thought of it really but before my friend asked me go go with her. Well, the result was more embarrassing to me than any dark hair! I didn't want to be seen with my lip rash for a couple of weeks! I just wanted to hibernate...
