An unwanted growth of hair on an individual’s lips, chin or cheeks and other such places is very common with some people. As all these places cover an individual’s facial region, the hair growing at such places are called facial hair. Unwanted hair growth is always abnormal and it is often termed as ‘Hirsutism’ in the language of science. The problem of unwanted hair is common not just with males but females as well. People with unwanted facial hair growth always feel embarrassing because of it. Some even take it as a beauty or charm spoiling factor. In such a time, people need something which removes these unwanted hair and prevents them from growing back again. The same can be achieved with a homemade facemask which can be prepared following these simple remedies:-

Put a strip of cotton cloth over it and let the cloth settled over the mixture applied surface of your skin for a few minutes. Now pull off the cloth after some time in the opposite direction, facial hair from that region will get plucked away with the cloth.
2. Use Chickpea Pace Mask:-
In this approach, we dab and dust the target area with some chickpea flour. Now we take two teaspoon of the same flour in two teaspoon of milk and one teaspoon of glycerine and a teaspoon of turmeric to form a paste like mixture. This paste is to be applied on target areas with unwanted facial growth. Once applied, this mixture is to be kept applied for at least 15-20 minutes and then one has to scrub it off. This will result in a reduced growth of facial hair and most of the pre existing hair will also get plucked off while scrubbing.
