1. Papaya and Turmeric:
Raw papaya contains an enzyme called papain, disintegrates the cuticle of human hair and causes it to fall out naturally. This method is well suitable for all types of skin.
Peel one raw papaya and cut it into small pieces and mash them to make a paste. Mix the paste with 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder and apply the paste to the parts of your face with unwanted hair. Massage your skin gently at first and then let the mask sit for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with warm water.
Note: Repeat 2 times a week.
2. Egg and Cornstarch:
As we know that Egg whites strongly stick to facial hairs & plucks them as perfectly as store-bought wax. This method is suitable for all types of skin except for sensitive and acne-prone ones.
Crack an egg and put the egg white from it into a bowl. Add 1 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tbsp cornstarch to it and stir it well to make a smooth paste. Now apply the paste to your face and let it dry for about 20-25 min and once the paste is hard enough, grab it and rip it off.

3.Gelatin and Milk:
This mask is extremely sticky & is able to peel off all the unwanted hairs instantly. It can also help to get rid of blackheads & dead skin cells. This method is suitable for all types of skin except for sensitive and acne-prone ones.
Mix 1 tbsp of unflavored gelatin powder with 3 tbsp of whole milk and a few drops of lemon juice in a bowl. Now heat the mixture in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. After removing the mixture from the microwave, let it cool off for a few seconds and then apply it to your face directly. Finally, let the mask sit on your face for 5 min and then peel it off.

4. Potato and Lentil:
As we know that dried lentils make it easier for your hair to be pulled out while potatoes have natural bleaching properties that help lighten your remaining hairs and make them less visible. This method is suitable for all skin types, but if you have dry skin, don’t forget to use a moisturizer after applying the mask.
Soak 1 cup of yellow lentils in water overnight. In the early morning, run the soaked lentils through a food processor to crush them into a fine thick paste. Now peel 1 potato and mash it through the food processor as well. Take a sieve (filter) and pass the crushed potato through it to extract as much potato juice as possible. Now mix the potato juice with the lentil paste, and add 1 tbsp of honey and lemon juice each to the mixture. Apply the fine paste to the affected areas and let it sit for 20-30 min. Once the mask is fully dry, remove it off.
Note: Repeat 1-2times a week

This peel-off mask removes all the unwanted hair instantly & perfectly exfoliates dead skin cells.

Put the 2 tbsp of sugar into a bowl and add 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of water to it. Now place the mixture in the microwave for about 30 seconds until the sugar dissolves and mixes with the liquids. Apply the fine paste to the parts of your face with unwanted hair. Now place a strip of cloth over the applied mixture and let it cool off for a couple of seconds. Now pull the strip in the opposite direction in which your hair is growing.
