How To Minimize Body Hair Growth In Females Naturally?
Having body hair is normal and naturally, men tend to have more growth than women. The body hair growth found in women is comparatively lesser. The thickness of each hair strand would also be lesser. The strand length also follows a similar pattern. But in some females, hair growth can be seen as similar to men and this seems to be concerning for most of the ladies out there.
The major reason for such excessive growth can be hormonal. Hence it is important to have an appointment with a dermatologist, seek consultation, do the prescribed tests, get your condition analyzed, and then go for treatment options.
So plunging into the ocean of home remedies and chemical creams and solutions available in the local markets may do more harm than good. It may also consume your precious time and money. So that it is always better to have a consultation in the first place and then seek treatment options available.
The first and the most common remedy you may try is shaving the body parts that you are concerned with exposing due to the body hair growth. While shaving make sure you are using a razor of the best quality and also do not forget to change your razor after 5-6 shaves. Blunt blades can harm your skin by giving you ingrown hair and other skin issues.
Exfoliating before shaving is also an unskippable step before shaving. You should also moisturize your skin well after completing the entire procedure. You may also try waxing using wax strips that are easily available in the market.
But if you are quite concerned about shaving and waxing very often, you may also try some home remedies that can be done with ingredients that are easily available in your pantry. Turmeric is the most important one among them.
While choosing turmeric for hair removal, make sure you are purchasing wild turmeric and not the turmeric used to prepare dishes. Wild turmeric can be easily identified since the original ones do not have a bright yellow color instead they come in a pale brown shade. Turmeric can be mixed with curd, milk, or just plain water to apply directly to your face. You may wash it after 15-20 minutes just like how you do it with regular face packs.
You may also try another pack by mixing lime juice, sugar, honey, and water. All these ingredients can be mixed to make a consistency that can be applied conveniently on your face without dripping. Make sure the quantity of lime juice does not go beyond the limit so that you do not burn yourself with its acidic nature.
You may also take it off after 15-20 minutes, just like the pack mentioned above. While trying all these remedies, make sure you are applying them on a clean face. It is also important not to apply harsh ingredients like baking powder, baking soda or even toothpaste by watching random videos or online guides.
Natural packs made using natural ingredients are less likely to do any harm to your skin, so it is always better to use them. Since you are following natural remedies, accept the fact it might take a specific amount of time for you to have the results and you should be patient and consistent to have the results you desire.
