rb-facial-mask-2-0809-de

Isn’t that great news? A completely unwanted-hairless face through no pain! I’m gonna try it out soon 😛

Facial Hair Scrub:

  • 1 tsp ground coffee
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • And a little bit of water to make this into a paste

Very gently exfoliate your skin with it and keep it on for 5-10 mins and then rinse off. Do this once a week

Facial Hair Mask

After exfoliating, use this mask, you’ll need:

  • Gram flour (Besan)
  • Curd
  • Pinch of Turmeric

Use enough Gram flour and Curd to make it a paste, ok? But keep the turmeric to a pinch only, or else your face might turn orange (or so I’ve heard xD)

Now keep this paste on for 20 mins and then rinse it off with cold water. Not only does this get rid of unwanted hair but also lightens up your face.
