Fenugreek and Green Gram for Facial Hair Removal
Fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal is a very natural and easy hair removal method. It is not like waxing, as it does not remove hair instantly. But it does work overtime, reducing hair growth significantly, similarly to what we said in how to get rid of facial hair with besan. Since, as we will see, green gram flour and fenugreek seeds also have a number of benefits for the skin, there are a bunch of reasons why you should try this fenugreek and gram flour for facial hair removal. So, stay tuned on The Indian Rose to know everything about it.
Green gram for hair removal
First of all, what is green gram? It is a green bean coming from the Indian subcontinent. It is often referred to as mung bean.
What is green gram in Hindi? Green gram is often called sabut moong (साबुत मूंग) in Hindi.
When we talk about green gram in this article, we refer to green gram flour, which is the powdered form of the green gram beans.
Before we discover the recipe of our fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal, let’s see the benefits of green gram for hair removal:
Green gram flour is an exfoliant: it helps your skin get rid of toxins and makes facial hair fall, that is why people also use gram flour for acne
Green gram flour also has cleansing properties, so it is ideal for people with acne, and makes skin glow
Green gram flour is gentle: it is better than besan for sensitive skins as it does not make them too dry
Now let’s look at the second main ingredient of our recipe: fenugreek for facial hair removal.
Fenugreek for facial hair removal
First of all, when we talk about fenugreek in this article, what we mean is fenugreek seeds. Fenugreek seeds cannot actually be regarded as a hair removal agent like besan or green gram. What fenugreek really does is helping regulate hair growth when caused by hormonal imbalances such as PCOS (for which you can check the Ayurvedic treatment for PCOS), and hirsutism. Fenugreek can help greatly in regulating excessive and unusual hair growth. If you have hirsutism, you can also try a diet rich in fenugreek seeds.
Other benefits of fenugreek seeds for skin include antibacterial and calming properties. It is particularly because of the calming properties that fenugreek is used in this fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal recipe. In fact, fenugreek can compensate the slightly aggressive and drying action of green gram for hair removal.
Rose water for facial hair removal
Another ingredient of our fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal is rose water. Rose water is simply fantastic for the skin. South Asian people tend to use it a lot because of its amazing properties, including cleansing and refreshing the skin, and making it look younger. Because of its cleansing and exfoliating properties, rose water is a much more helpful ingredient than water for our fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal recipe, as it contributes to make hair fall.
Lemon juice for facial hair removal
Lemon juice for facial hair removal is a key ingredient of our paste. In fact, lemon juice has bleaching properties that lighten the color of facial hair, which means that by using the fenugreek and green gram for facial hair removal, some of your hair will fall, others will stop growing, and some others yet will become lighter in color.
