This method reduces the amount of fuzz you have, helping you look smooth. To do it, combine sugar with a bit of lemon juice and some honey and microwave until it melts. Cool, then spread the mixture on the desired area, allowing it to sit for several minutes before rinsing. Repeat several times per week for the best results.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice used in ethnic cooking, but it also has hair removal benefits. In generations past, women combined turmeric with besan, a flour made from chickpeas, and water to make a paste. The mixture can be applied to facial hair to easily remove it without shaving. Use caution because if you leave the turmeric on your skin for too long, it can leave your skin looking yellow.

In this case, you’ll use creams and lotions that contain soy, rather than eating it. Soy has properties that, when applied to your body, slow hair growth and shrink follicles. Regular use can mean less hair in areas you want to keep smooth.

Preventative growth serums like this one take a bit of commitment, but it’s well worth the effort. You must shave once to get started, but thereafter, you should be able to rid yourself of unwanted hair with the serum. Spray the product onto the shaved area twice per day for a couple of months. The product works to stunt hair growth and keep it from coming back.

This is a technique that specifically replaces shaving in the eyebrow area. Toss your eyebrow trimmer and have your brows threaded at a salon instead. It’s virtually painless, really fast, and it lasts much longer than the homemade trims you’re doing yourself.

Epilating

It might look like shaving, but epilating isn’t the same thing. The epilating tool is actually a set of micro tweezers that pull each hair out at it’s root. This results in a longer period of time that you get to spend hair-free and it doesn’t cause as much irriation as traditional shaving might.

Eat More Fish

Fish is a prime source of vitamin B6, which your body needs to keep hair from growing so thick and so quickly. Fish is a great choice, but meat, broccoli, bananas, carrots and watermelon are alternatives if you don’t like fish.
