The skin is one of the most sensitive organs in the body. It is responsible for protecting us from external factors, so its subjected to a lot of wear and tear that can easily damage it. The weather, sun, hormonal disorders and other factors can cause damage to the skin in the form of wrinkles, acne, stains, etc. The same factors can cause another unwanted problem – excess hair.
The skin is covered by hair in certain parts of the body. However, there are areas which we all prefer not to have a single hair in. Excess hair on the face or underarms is a big problem for millions of women, who are trying to reduce it with methods such as waxing and shaving. These processes can be very painful, and are just a temporary measure as well.
So, is it possible to get rid of the excess hair naturally? Yes, it is. According to PrettyPriyaTV, a YouTube personality, there is a great natural shaving cream that can remove excess hair from your skin while cleaning and whitening it as well. Here’s how to prepare it:
2 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons of potato juice
5 tablespoons of milk
½ a tablespoon of baking soda
Preparation and use
The preparation is simple – just mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then warm the mixture in a microwave for at least 30 seconds. Before using the cream, clean the affected areas with water first. Now, apply the cream with a brush in the direction of hair growth, then leave it to dry for 15-20 minutes. After 20 minutes, peel the hard layer away from the direction of hair growth in order to prevent injuries. Rinse with warm water in the end and apply your favorite moisturizer.
The mixture is great for your skin – milk has soothing properties, while the potato juice can refresh your skin. On the other hand, baking soda will help with the extraction of the hair and soften your skin. Besides removing the excess hair, the cream will also exfoliate your skin and make it look younger.
