We mostly dress according to our waxing schedules. Waxing is always painful but more than painful it is stressful. Booking the salon appointments and taking time off to visit the parlour always make us cringe. There is always an option to bring salon at home but most of us our comfortable with our own beautician at salon (to whom we have been going for years). Another option is to remove underarm hair with the help of razors and hair removal creams. No doubts hair removal creams are pain-free and are of instant help but they are short-term solutions.
How about a solution that is pain-free, stress-free and is a long-term solution? We are absolutely no kidding! With the help of your kitchen ingredients, you can prepare packs that can not only remove underarm hair but also protects our underarms from becoming darker or rough.
