One of the most tedious activities of the female beauty ritual is undoubtedly hair removal. While it may be days without the legs of the legs and other areas are being touched, the armpit area is unforgivable.
This area of the body requires a lot of maintenance which is why women stick to various lotions and creams, but most of the commercial products are pretty harmful to the skin and can cause bigger problems than the one they’re trying to resolve. They’re also pretty expensive and can burn a hole in your pocket if you’re using them often
Here are some recipes for you to choose your favorite. These will help you reduce hair growth and you can say goodbye to the rake in a very short time.
This legume not only removes the hair from the armpits, it also helps to remove the hair from the face, arms, and legs.
-½ cup chickpea flour
-½ cup whole milk
-1 tablespoon turmeric
Mix the flour and milk to get a paste, then add the turmeric and mix again. Apply the paste on your underarms and leave it on for half an hour, then gently remove it and rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat the process 2 times a week to remove all the hair from your underarms.
2.Olive oil and sugar
With this mixture, you will whiten and moisturize your armpits at the same time.
-1 cup brown sugar
-3 tablespoons olive oil
Mix the cornstarch, baking soda and coconut oil in a pot, then cook them until everything combines on medium heat. Next, leave the mixture to cool down and pour it into a glass jar, then add the lemon juice. Leave the mixture in a cold and dry place for a full day, then apply it on your underarms with your fingers as needed. This powerful natural deodorant will prevent body odor and kill all the bacteria on your underarms.
3.Honey, lime, and sugar
The lime acts as bleach and sugar – preferably brown – helps to exfoliate the skin.
-1 tablespoon honey
-1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 teaspoon lime juice
Pour the lime juice, sugar and honey in a pot, then cook the mixture until it becomes thick – if it’s too thick, you can add a bit of water. Now, leave it to cool down, then add some baby powder to your underarms and apply a thin layer of the paste, in the opposite direction of your hair growth. Stick a piece of cloth to the warm paste, let it sit for 4-5 seconds, then quickly pull it down. These homemade epilator paste works great and it gentler on your skin than commercial solutions.
4.Papaya (for sensitive skin)
This fruit, although a bit odorous, is excellent for sensitive skin; but that’s not the best. Papaya has a substance called papain, which helps stop hair growth.
-A fresh papaya
-½ tablespoon turmeric powder (you can get it in the supermarket, in the spice area)
Mash the papaya and mix it with the turmeric, then apply the paste on your underarms and let it dry off. Rinse with water in the end and use the remedy twice a week for best results.
5.Potatoes and lentils
This mixture will do two things for your armpits: it will leave them soft and whiten them.
-1 small bowl with peeled and crushed potatoes
-1 cup yellow lentils
-1 tablespoon honey
-4 tablespoons lime juice
-A piece of cloth that serves as a strainer
Soak the lentils in water overnight, then process them to a paste in the morning. Boil the potatoes, crush them, then squeeze them through a cloth and collect the liquid. Mix the potato juice, lime juice, and honey to get a paste, then add it to the lentils paste and combine well. Apply the remedy on your underarms, leave it to work for 15-20 minutes, then take it off with lukewarm water. Repeat the process once a week for best results.
6.Bananas and oats
If you thought these ingredients were good at breakfast, you’ll love what they can do for your skin.
-1 banana (ripe)
-2 tablespoons oats
Mash the banana to get a paste, then add the oats and mix again well. Apply the paste on your underarms and massage it in for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. For best results, use the remedy twice or thrice a week.
7.Coconut oil and baking soda
Bicarbonate is an excellent exfoliant that helps eliminate dead cells and bacteria. Coconut oil prevents bad odor, and its vitamin E helps moisturize the skin.
-¼ tablespoon cornstarch
-¼ cup baking soda
-6 tablespoons coconut oil
Mix baking soda with coconut oil until it forms a thick paste. Apply in the armpits, with circular movements. Leave to stand for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Dry thoroughly to remove any debris. Repeat 1 time per week.
