The eternal fight with unwanted hair is something that almost every modern lady goes though. Of course there are some effective and expensive ways of getting rid of it once and for all but not everyone can afford those right? So what should we do? Of course shaving is an option but it is such a short-lasting one that it is barely an option.

Hold on but what did women do when there was nothing like laser epilation? Did they just let their hair grow and think “to hell with it”? The answer would be no. the thing is that the past ages are pretty rich with various kinds of recipes that are no less effective even these days. Do you want to get to know them? Let’s do it!

#1 Turmeric and rose water paste

This recipe is so easy that even a small kid would succeed in preparing it. All you need to do is to mix 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder with rose water, after the paste is ready, you simple have to apply it onto the area you want to be hairless and wait until it dries up. After that just rinse it with warm water, repeat it once a week at least and observe the result!

#2 Sugar, Lemon, And Honey Paste

This method is no less simple but it may involve some pain but what is that little sacrifice when smooth, hairless areas are at stake right? You will need to mix the same amount of sugar, honey and lemon juice and heat it up, until the sugar melts. If you see that the mixture is too thin you can add a little cornstarch and if it is too thick – use water. After the mixture cools down a bit, you can apply it to the affected areas. Put a cloth over the mixture and rip it off, quickly. Ouch!

#3 Potato And Lentil Paste

This one is a little bit time consuming, since to start with you will have to soak a bowl of lentils over the night and then grind them. The potatoes need to be peeled and crushed but the thing you need is potato juice. Now when you have the two most important ingredients ready, mix them together and add a tablespoon of honey and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice. Mix well and apply to the hairy area, after 20 minutes – scrub the mixture together with the unwanted hair off.

#4 Raw Papaya And Turmeric Paste

Another anti-hair mixture involving turmeric powder. This time you are going to mix it with raw papaya paste. Just 2 tablespoons of raw papaya and half a tablespoon of turmeric powder and the mixture is ready. Apply it and leave it on for 20 minutes and wash it off. For a greater effect apply it twice a week.

#5 Egg And Cornstarch Paste

Last but not least. For this one you are going to need to mix one egg white with 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch and 1 tbsp. sugar. Leave it on for about 25 minutes and rip it off in one solid move to get rid of the unnecessary hair.
