Sugar And Lemon:

Mix sugar in warm water and add lemon to it. The sugar water exfoliates the skin and breaks down hair follicles. Lemon acts as a bleaching agent. Do this at least once every week.


Turmeric And Papaya:

Papayas contain enzymes that can breakdown hair follicles to permanently reduce hair growth. Turmeric helps in making sure that the papaya does not cause any infection to the skin.


Coffee And Baking Soda:

Mix equal parts of coffee grounds and baking soda. Rub this in the direction opposite to the hair growth. This helps breakdown hair follicles from the root.



Apply unflavoured gelatin on your upper lip area. Peel it off after 15 minutes. Since gelatin is sticky, it will make hair come off when you peel it off. This may be slightly painful, although not as much as waxing or threading.


Turmeric And Chickpea:

Turmeric and chickpea, or besan powder, have been used by generations of Indian women to get rid of unwanted hair naturally. Just make a paste of the two powders and rub in the direction opposite to hair growth. This is one of the best natural home remedies to remove upper lip hair, as it has been passed down from generations.


Egg And Cornflour:

This actually works as a natural peel off face pack. Mix one teaspoon of cornflour into one egg, and mix it well. Apply this with a brush on the upper lip area. Peel it off after 10-15 minutes when it has dried completely.


Honey And Oatmeal:

Mix honey, ground oatmeal and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply this opposite to the direction of hair growth and rub gently. This would help the compounds breakdown the hair follicles from the roots.
