    Try These Effective Ways Of Unwanted Hair Removal With Sugar

    To get rid of unwanted hair in the body, women go to the salons frequently or buy those hair removal creams that are infused with chemicals. The usage of hair removal creams regularly will make your hair and skin darker as they remove the hair only from the surface of the skin. Some of us even try the permanent way of removing unwanted hair through laser treatments which can cost you a pretty penny.

    Excessive hair growth can due to various factors like irregular menstrual cycle, hormonal imbalance and even due to side effects of certain medications. Whatever be the reason, you can easily get rid of unwanted hair easily at home using sugar. Melted sugar is very sticky and when applied on the skin and peeled, sugar helps in removing the hair from the roots. It is also comparatively painless.

    Unwanted Hair Removal With Sugar

    In today's article, we'll be giving you different ways in which you can use sugar to remove unwanted hair.

    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • ½ tsp cornflour

    How to do

    Break an egg and separate the egg white from the egg and add it into a clean bowl. Add sugar and cornflour into the egg white. Combine all the ingredients to make a smooth mixture. Wash your face and pat dry. Apply a layer of this sugar and egg white mixture on your face with the help of a brush. Now you can wait for 20-25 minutes. You should peel it off while holding your skin firmly. Repeat this remedy at least twice a week for best results.
