What Are The Causes Of Unwanted Facial Hair?
There are certain factors that cause unwanted facial hair in women. They are:

How To Make Hair Removal Wax At Home:
Now let’s begin the preparation process of wax for hair removal at home:
Required Ingredients :
– 250 ml granulated sugar
– 250 ml honey
– 125 ml lemon juice
- Take a medium to heavy sauce pan and add sugar to it. Simmer until the sugar begins to melt.
- Add honey and lemon juice to the melted sugar and stir the mixture slowly with a wooden spoon. Continue stirring till the mixture has attained a consistency of pancake batter.
- The mixture at this point of time will be very hot. Make sure you let it cool before using it.
- The home made hair removal wax is now ready. Before you begin with the process of waxing, make sure you check the length of the hair you want to remove.
If you have short hair, the wax will not pull out your hair from its roots. On the other hand, longer hair might make the process of waxing more painful.
- Cut out thick strips of cloth and keep them ready before you begin with the waxing process. In case you don’t have the strips ready, you can create some from an old cotton or linen shirt.
- It is important to make sure that your skin isn’t oily or doesn’t contain moisture. To achieve this, dust the area with baby powder before applying wax. This will help the wax to stick to your hair and making the entire process more effective and less painful.
- Use a spatula or a wooden tongue depressor to apply the wax the way you desired. One important point to be taken care of is the direction in which you apply the wax. Make sure you apply the wax in the direction of hair growth.
- Take the strip of cloth and press it onto the wax. Smooth your fingers over it in the direction of hair growth. Slightly pull up the bottom of the strip and check if the wax has stuck to your skin completely. Once done, wait for the wax to cool down completely.
- Hold your skin tight, and pull off the strip in one go. Make sure you pull off the strip in the direction opposite to that of your hair growth. Do this very quickly, and at a shallow angle.
And Bingo! There you have – a flawless, glowing and smooth skin!
