Home remedies and tips to get rid of unwanted facial hair


Facial hair growth is one of the most annoying problems that many women face. The regular trips to parlors to keep one’s skin looking smooth and hairless require commitment and time not to mention a high pain threshold. If you do not like visiting a salon every few days, you can manage this problem at home as well using natural products. Before parlors, women took care of this problem at home using remedies like lemon juice, honey, turmeric and more. You too can make use of these and get rid of facial hair in the confines of your home. Here’s what you need to do.

The world has finally woken up to the amazing beauty benefits of turmeric or haldi which you will find aplenty in most Indian households. Use it to your benefit to make a face pack that will help you get rid of facial hair. An age-old remedy, this technique has been used by women when there were no creams, waxing, etc. Using this face pack loosens the hair and makes the hair growth scarce over a period of time.

In a bowl, add a spoonful of gram flour or besan, a pinch of turmeric powder and two spoons of milk. Mix all the ingredients to make a thick paste. Apply this in circular motions on your face except the area around the eyes. Wherever you have more facial hair growth, massage that area for a longer time. Let the pack dry and then wash it off with lukewarm water. You will notice that the hair growth gets fainter with every application of this pack. Use it once a week to see better results.

Honey and sugar wax

Did you know you can make your own natural wax at home in minutes? This can be used to get rid of the facial hair from the root using a cloth strip. This will delay the hair growth as you will only see the growth reappear after two to three weeks or more and that too will get finer with every session.

To make this wax, take two spoons of sugar and add one spoon of honey and one spoon of water to it. Now boil this solution on the stove and then turn off the flame once its bubbles and turns brown in color. Let it cool down a bit so that it doesn’t burn your skin.

Use a clean butter knife and apply the wax on the hair growth. Keep the cloth strip ready and place it on the wax applied. Smooth it out in the direction of the hair growth and then holding the skin taut, pull it off in the opposite direction. This will rip away the hair in a single motion. Do this in front of a mirror so you can see what you are doing. Once you are done with the waxing, apply soothing rosewater on the skin or even aloe vera gel as it will heal the skin. If there is too much redness, first rub ice cubes on your face.

Lemon and honey bleach

If you cannot bear the pain of facial waxing, bleaching the hair is something that you can try as it is completely painless and does not cause any kind of redness or soreness. This natural bleach lightens the color of the hair which in turn helps conceal it. Even though the growth is still present, it is lighter in color and so not really visible.

To make this bleach, simply squeeze a lemon in a bowl and then add a few drops of honey to it. Mix the two and then using a cotton ball, apply it on your face wherever there is facial growth. Lemon has natural bleaching properties that will help lighten the hair color as well as your skin color. Let it stay on your face for 15 minutes before you wash it off with water. If you are doing this in the day, immediately apply sunscreen on the face to avoid tanning as lemon can turn your skin dark when exposed to the sun. Its effect will stay on for a week at least and when you notice the growth again, you can reapply the bleach.

Spearmint tea

One of the reasons why you have more facial hair growth than others is because of your hormones. Females also have male hormones in the body and when the level is higher than usual, it leads to excessive facial hair. It could also be a hereditary problem but you can reduce it to an extent by drinking spearmint tea. According to research, drinking it twice a day can help reduce the appearance of facial hair growth in women.

All you have to do is boil a few spearmint tea leaves in water and then steep it for 10 minutes. Strain it and then have it twice a day. Drinking it regularly will help slow down the facial hair growth. This is not an immediate remedy but doing this along with the others mentioned above will help you deal with this woe better.

Kendall Jenner's wet-look bob


Kendall Jenner is never afraid to experiment with bold outfits and beauty looks.

But when the model stepped out with a super chic wet-look bob hairstyle at the recent Met Gala, fashionistas around the globe stopped to take notes.

Hairstylist Jason Welch from London's The Lion & The Fox Salon explains that Kendall's long bob or 'lob' is very on-trend, and works to emphasise her eyes and cheekbones - especially as she had a few strands of hair tucked behind one ear.

"The style is very versatile, feminine and flattering, and suits most women as it elongates the face shape," he told Cover Media.

When it comes to emulating Kendall's look, it is a good idea to bring photos displaying all angles of the look to show your hairstylist, as this will give them an insight into how the back and front were cut.

Hair experts Ian Florey and Anna Carter add that Kendall's look can be classed as an A-line bob, and suggest that when discussing a length with your hairdresser, ask for the cut to sit slightly above the shoulder as anything resting on there will flick out.

"Maintenance wise, this should be a pretty easy hair style to keep up with, as with regular visits to the hairdresser, you will be able to maintain the shape and stop the hair resting on the shoulders. You can diffuse the hair to add to your natural texture/add more volume," they shared.

To emulate Kendall's fresh-out-of-the-shower styling, Ian and Anna recommend coating the hair with a strong gel, mixed with a serum. But they insist that it is best to avoid any oil-based hair products, as these will sit on top of the hair instead of soaking in and result in a greasy finish.Read more at:plus size prom dresses | vintage prom dresses

A little patch of paradise


Last week, I was up early in the morning after the recent storm, heading out to Sweet Roots Farm for a visit.

Raindrops still glistened on the pine needles in the sunlight, and grasses in unmown fields swayed in the breeze. Clouds moved slowly onto their next destination. The scent of deer brush filled the air. After two days in the Bay Area, I was happy to be back home.

Driving down Auburn Road was better than a Thanksgiving feast.

I met with Robbie Martin and Deena Miller. Their Sweet Roots Farm is located on a south facing hillside and valley surrounded by Poorman's and Wolf creeks. It's a little patch of paradise. Deena's family purchased the land many years ago as a possible retirement location. Robbie and Deena began farming here in 2010. After a few years in a trailer, they moved into a small house. It was built just in time for the arrival of Hazel who accompanied her mother and I around the farm gurgling and grumbling her farming opinions.

But every story should begin at its roots, sweet roots. In 2008, Deena was a student teacher at the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at the University of California Santa Cruz. There she met Robbie, who was also a student. They are two of the more than 1,500 Ecological Horticulture apprentices that have been trained in this program over the years. Many of these young people have gone on to establish their own organic farms, oversee food policy or head similar programs.

This year UC Santa Cruz is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the beginning of this program, which was instrumental in launching the organic food movement. In its five decades, the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems has cultivated a community of thoughtful leaders who are redefining organic farming. It began with two professors/farmers who were looking for a way to minimize the heavy chemical impact of California's princess crop, strawberries. In addition to training young farmers and creating a free 700-page training guide, the center's researchers developed novel approaches to many pesticide issues. Once they were considered radical innovations; today they are used by farmers all over the world.

In their sixth year of farming, Deena and Robbie are still passionate about spending time outdoors, growing things. But as business owners, they must analyze which products and services are helping them build their bottom line.

"I'm beginning to not feel overwhelmed about the farm. Robbie and I are finally seeing that there is a potential of it being sustainable," Deena said, flashing her thousand-watt smile.

Because Nevada County is becoming well known as a wedding destination, flowers have become their most profitable and enjoyable crop. Deena sells certified organic flowers in bulk buckets or does full service weddings designing and setting up all the arrangements — the table settings, bouquets and arbors. Last year she booked 36 weddings as well as special events.

"Brides are drawn to our huge palette of colors," she said, "shapes and textures that aren't available through the regular florists."

Growing and selling vegetable starts is another revenue source in the spring. They also wholesale eleven different certified organic vegetables to BriarPatch, Three Forks restaurant and other local establishments.

Everyone agrees beautiful flowers are food for the soul, but there are many that are actually edible. They add texture and a rainbow of color to a salad. Deena recommends calendulas, stock, dianthus, marigolds and bachelor's buttons; all are all safe to eat. Rose petals also give a lovely scent to a salad, but only those grown by someone you know that have not been sprayed should be eaten.

An easy and simple salad might be to start with a variety of baby greens, about 3 ounces. Grated carrot would add some sweetness and a light vinegar and oil dressing using a small shallot, perhaps lemon or orange juice, white wine or champagne vinegar, pinch of salt and fresh grated pepper. Flowers are too delicate to chop with a knife. Better to tear them apart by hand. Add them just before serving and after you've dressed the salad.Read more at:prom dress | evening dresses uk
