3. Mixture Of Lemon Sugar and Water
A simple method of upper lip hair removal is to have a mixture of lemon, water and sugar. The mixture has to be applied in the affected area and left to dry for around fifteen to twenty minutes. It has to be continued for around 30 to 45 days and it will certainly help in removing those unwanted hair from the upper lip area. It is safe and the application should be around two to three times a day to have the desired impact. It would be advisable to boil the water and bring it down to normal temperature and use the same for mixing with sugar and water.
4. Mixture Of Corn Flour, Sugar And Egg White
This is an age old and time tested process. All that is required is egg white mixed thoroughly with sugar and corn flour. One teaspoon of corn flour should be mixed with one teaspoon of sugar. The mixture should be added to the egg white and stirred till it becomes a paste. It should be applied on the upper lip area around twice a day for 30 to 45 days.

However, the process has to be continued for around 45 to 60 days for having the best impact.
Do’s And Donts
In almost all the above methods turmeric plays an important role. Therefore it can certainly help to remove unwanted hair from other parts of the body too. Therefore it should be used regularly.
