Updated on May 8, 2016

Hairs are definitely the integral part of one’s beauty, if it is on our head. We all have hairs on all parts of the body, for some it is evident and for some it is not. Hairs on the body have vital functions like preserving the heat of the body, protecting our skin from dust particles and also act as a protective cover or layer over the delicate skin. However, when it grows in large extent making it so evident that our beauty or look is compromised, then it is a problem. Facial hairs or excess growth of hairs on the facial skin makes us look darker and awkward also. There are many cosmetic therapies available which may have some side effects. On the other hand, homemade remedies made of natural products are gradual healers and have no side effects

  • Hormonal changes- Increase in the production of androgen can cause increased facial hair growth in women.
  • POS- Polycystic ovary syndrome is also one of the reasons of excess facial hair growth.
  • Insulin resistance can also cause facial hairs.
  • Hormonal disorder like hirsutism (a condition arise due to hormonal disturbance) can also lead us to sudden growth of facial hairs.

Natural products gradually brings desired changes with long lasting effect. Some of the best homemade remedies are here for your benefit.
