You can apply this paste twice a week and for better results, you must follow the routine for a month. It will remove all the unwanted facial hair and will make your skin smooth and glowing.

    • Basil and Onion- You can make a fine paste of basil leaves and onion juice. Apply it on the affected area 3-4 times a week for a few months and you’ll observe the growth of the unwanted facial hair has been reduced miraculously. This pack may cause mild irritation on the skin else it is suitable for all skin types.

    • Tea tree oil and Lavender- You can mix the oils in equal quantities and fill up a bottle. With the help of a cotton ball, you can apply this lotion to the affected area. For better results, you must apply this lotion daily on your face for 3 months continuously. The anti-androgenic properties of these oils reduce hair growth and show amazing results.
