1 Use Turmeric on Your Lip
Is there anything turmeric can’t do? This spice is found in curry and has loads of health benefits. Turns out you can also use it to get rid of hair on your upper lip. Combine equal amounts turmeric and milk and spread the mixture over your lip. Once it dries, rinse it off with cool water. Just be aware that turmeric can stain your skin so be sure you test it in an inconspicuous place before you use it to defuzz your lip.
2 Try Some Plain, Old White Flour
Experts say that this is one of the easiest and cheapest methods for removing unwanted lip hair. All you have to do is create a paste with flour and milk. You can also toss in some turmeric if you want to. Massage the mixture into your lip and let it dry. Peel off the dried treatment and you’re good to go.
3 Sugar and Lemon Can Work Really Well
This method is similar to exfoliation and should lighten and soften hair so it falls out pretty easily. This treatment involves heating sugar in a saucepan, then adding lemon juice to create a thick liquid. Spread the mixture on your lip and press a clean cloth into it. Massage the area in circles, then remove the cloth in same direction that your hair grows. Easy, right?
4 Egg Whites Are Perfect
The great thing about egg whites is that you always have them on hand so you can get rid of lip fuzz anytime you need to. Start by mixing some cornmeal and sugar with an egg white to create a paste. Spread that paste onto your lip and wait about 30 minutes before you peel it off. Sounds easy enough, right?
5 Make a Gelatin Peel off Mask
This mask works great for getting rid of excess hair on your lip, but it also works in other areas where you want to get rid of hair, including your chin and jaw. Combine gelatin with milk and few drops of lime juice, the heat it just a bit in the microwave. Spread the mask anywhere you want to remove fuzz, wait 5 minutes, then peel the mask off and rinse your face with warm water.
6 Try a Honey and Apricot Scrub
A scrub can exfoliate your skin, helping it look healthy and fresh, but it can also get rid of that little bit of fuzz that drives you crazy. Combine coarsely ground dried apricots with honey. Spread the mixture all over your face and wait about 15 minutes. Then gently scrub the mixture in circles anywhere you have extra hair. Rinse with warm water and you’re all done.
7 Lavender and Tea Tree Oils Work Really Well
Mix together a drop of lavender oil with about 6 drops of tea tree oil. Apply the oils to your upper lip with a cotton ball three times per day. In a few months or so, you should notice that your hair starts to disappear.
8 Potato Juice is a Unique Choice
This sounds crazy but I'm willing to give it a go if you are! Mix potato juice, lentils that have soaked overnight, and lemon juice into a paste, then add honey. Apply this to the upper lip and let sit 15-20 minutes until dry. Scrub the paste off and wash with water. Potato juice acts as a bleach, while the scrub works to pull the hairs out.
9 Corn Flour and Milk Work
Mix a 1:2 teaspoon ratio together and apply. Let dry and slowly peel off. This hardened combination acts as an almost natural wax and will pull the hairs from the lip.
10 Diy Wax Sounds like It Would Work
Make an all natural wax at home that works to remove hair. 2 tablespoons brown sugar and one cup water, mixed and heated on the stove over medium heat. Stirring constantly so the mixture becomes thick, apply to your lip with a spatula. Using a wax strip (cotton cloth) press firmly onto your lip for one minute. Just like waxing, pull firmly against the growth of hair.
