Discover how to use turmeric to for facial hair.

This turmeric never ceases to amaze us, and if it doesn’t, it will be after reading this article. Indeed, we are going to see how and why to use turmeric to fight against unwanted facial hair.

I suggest here some methods, soft or strong, with different levels of effectiveness, to eliminate those hairs that annoy you! They are effective for the face, but also, of course, for the whole body!


It is a predominantly female concern, with every woman wishing to have a radiant face and, at a minimum, without any hair. To do this, they practice waxing, hair removal with thread, tweezers, or they use dyes, in short: they struggle!

The abnormal growth of hair, hirsutism in medical terms, often happens to women with dark hair, because even if all women are hairy, in them it is more visible. So that can become an embarrassing problem, especially as they get older and their estrogen levels drop.


There are many natural, inexpensive, and good facial methods to get rid of unwanted facial hair, and that’s thanks to turmeric, a perfect ingredient for external use. Turmeric is also used to have beautiful skin.

These recipes allow either permanent hair removal, or in the medium term allow hair to be refined, bleached, or prevent regrowth. In any case, they leave the skin of the face healthy, soft, without blackheads and above all: without hair!

Turmeric will act on 4 levels: hair removal, hair colouring, hair thickness, slowing down or even stopping hair regrowth. Well, more should be said about these methods:

A permanent hair removal mask? Yes for some and no for others.
Hair removal or a mask? Both my captain.
Hair removal in one application? No! As I will specify later, it must be applied 2 or 3 times a week for one or two months to have a concrete result.
In all the methods that we are going to see, do not put the mask or the balm on the eyebrows, that goes without saying, but I prefer to specify!

Recipes of turmeric depilatory masks:

Turmeric and chickpea flour:

Effective for both light hair and thick hair, this is my favourite gentle method, a traditional Indian method.


Chickpea flour is traditionally used in India in combination with turmeric to suppress and prevent hair growth all over the body.

Women are used to using this method on themselves, but also on children to keep their skin soft, clean and hairless.

Ingredients :

1/2 bowl of chickpea flour
1/2 bowl of milk
1 heaped teaspoon of ground turmeric
1 teaspoon of fresh cream

Preparation :

Mix the turmeric and the chickpea flour, then mix with the milk and the fresh cream until you obtain a homogeneous and smooth paste.

Apply liberally to the face in the direction of hair growth, until the preparation covers all the hair.

Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, then rub the face with your hands or a slightly moistened glove, against the grain.


Then finish rinsing your face so as not to leave yellow marks.
This method should be repeated at least 2 or 3 times a week, for at least 1 or 2 months, before you see any obvious effect.

In the long term, it will allow a decrease in hair growth, a decrease in thickness, until total disappearance.

Turmeric, honey and lemon juice:

Effective on fine hairs by exfoliating effect, lemon cleanses and gum, and honey helps to soften the hairs. They both slow down hair growth, and “colour”, or rather whiten hair.

It is a remedy widely used in Egypt.

Ingredients :

4 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of lemon
1 teaspoon of turmeric


Preparation :

Mix all the ingredients and apply to the face. Leave on for 20 minutes then rub with a glove and rinse with fresh water.

This method should be repeated at least 2 or 3 times a week, for at least 1 or 2 months, before you see any obvious effect.


In the long term, it will allow a decrease in hair growth and a decrease in thickness.

Turmeric and red lentils

Also thanks to its exfoliating and exfoliating effect, a mask with red lentils (masoor dal in Indian) is ideal for getting rid of hair. It is a mask used in India to purify and remove hair from the whole body.

Ingredients :

2 tablespoons of red lentils
1 or 2 tablespoons of almond milk
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

Preparation :

Mix the red lentils until you obtain a fine powder, and mix this powder with the turmeric, pour in the milk and mix until you obtain a very smooth paste.


Apply the paste on the face, leave to act for 20 min then rub with the hands or a glove.

This method should be repeated at least 2 or 3 times a week, for at least 1 or 2 months, before you see any effect.

Turmeric and wheat flour

Ingredients :

1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of wheat flour
olive oil

Preparation :

Mix the flour and turmeric. Pour in the olive oil very slowly while mixing until you get a thick paste.

Apply on your face and let sit for 30 min.


Remove by rubbing with your hands or a glove.

You will have noticed that all these methods are more or less the same, you can vary them, use other ingredients for the skin like rose water or orange blossom water.

Honey, turmeric and milk: one of the remedies for facial hair!

The harsh, but very effective methods:

Why hard method? Because these are recipes for preparing depilatory waxes, so you will have to remove the wax with a snap to depilate the hair and that: it stings!

Turmeric and egg white:

It’s a recipe that comes to me from a market client, tested by my wife who approved it 100%!


Ingredients :

1 egg white
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of flour

Preparation :

Mix all the ingredients to obtain a mixture neither too liquid nor too thick, otherwise, add dry ingredients to thicken it, a little water to liquefy it.
Spread the mask liberally on the face and put toilet paper on top.

Leave to dry for 30 minutes, and once dry and hard, pull sharply against the grain. Finish by rinsing with fresh water.

Turmeric and sugar

Simple, fast and effective. Sugar has always been used as a natural treatment for hair removal in Egypt. Unlike conventional hair removal, you have to pull the hairs in the direction of the hair growth, it hurts less and irritates the skinless.

Ingredients :

2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of water
1 or 2 knife tips of turmeric

Preparation :

Mix the sugar and turmeric, then mix the mixture with the honey and water.
Heat the mixture for about 30 seconds in the microwave, until it boils and browns.


Mix, and let cool so as not to burn your skin. Apply the wax with a spatula on the areas to be depilated.

Place a strip of fabric on the wax, smooth with your fingers in the direction of the hair, and tear in the direction of the hair growth.

Variation: same recipe, but with 1/4 cup of water, 2 cups of powdered sugar and 1/4 cup of lemon juice, heat in a saucepan until boiling, then 25 min over low heat at a simmer until it reaches a dark amber colour.
