Turmeric-Milk Paste:

The constituents of turmeric help to stop or reduce hair growth. They also help to weaken the roots and aid in pulling the hair out of the skin. Milk is also known for its exfoliating properties, further helping in hair removal.

Method: Take one tablespoon of milk and one tablespoon of turmeric. Mix them thoroughly and apply the mixture to your upper lips. After 20 minutes, gently rub the paste in the direction opposite to your hair growth. After the paste is completely removed, rinse with cold water and pat dry. 

Lemon and Honey:

Honey is one of the best Ayurvedic herbs to remove your upper lip hair. It is a natural wax that also helps to nourish and heal the skin. Lemon, on the other hand, helps to bleach and lighten the skin hair. This remedy is especially effective for people with dry skin. 

Method: Take one tablespoon of honey and ½ tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix them well and apply the sticky mixture to your upper lips. After 20 minutes, take a cloth or some cotton and soak it in warm water. Remove the excess water from the cloth and use it to wipe the paste from your upper lips.

Lemon and Sugar:

Sugar is a natural exfoliating agent, and lemon helps to bleach the skin hair. When warm sugar is applied to the skin, it sticks to the upper lips and helps to easily remove the facial hair. 

Method: Take two tablespoons of sugar, two tablespoons of lemon juice and some water. Mix all the ingredients well and heat the mixture until it starts bubbling. Let the mixture cool down, and apply the paste to your upper lips. Leave the paste for 20 minutes and then gently rub the paste in a circular motion to remove it. Wash your face with cold water.     

Potato Juice:

Potato juice is rich in acidic properties and helps to bleach the skin. It also helps to reduce the rate of your hair growth. When potato juice is mixed with lentils, it helps to form a paste that aids in removing unwanted hair.
