Recipe #1 Sugar and Lemon
Lemon is famous for its bleaching effects, and now you know that when it is combined with sugar it can remove hair forever. You will need about one full spoon of sugar, you can use some more if you like. As for the lemon, you will need the juice of just one lemon.
First put the sugar in a pan and heat it a little. Be careful not to leave it too much on the hot plate, because you are not making caramel. Take it off the heat after a couple of minutes and mix it with the lemon juice. Apply the mixture on this part of the face you want to remove the hairs from and let it dry completely. You will feel it a bit sticky, but this is the point. Now get a piece of cloth, you can also use some plaster if you want. Stick it carefully and then pull fast.
Repeat the procedure one more time when hair grows back. You will notice that the amount of hair is less.
Recipe #2 Egg white
You will need one egg, but only the egg white. If you do not know what to do with the egg yolk, just make some scrambled eggs(yolks). Mix it with one and a half tablespoon of corn flour and stir well. You will know that the mixture is ready when it turns like a sticky paste. Then apply it on the area above your lips and let it dry. Make sure that you have covered it completely. And now all you have to do is wait for the mixture to dry completely on your skin. Only this way, there will be actual results. When it is ready, remove the paste from your face with cool water and your finger. You can also use a piece of cloth if it will be easier for you.
You need to repeat this method two times a week for about two months and only then you will see the optimum results.
Recipe #3 Turmeric and Milk
Here is another quite easy recipe, which will not cost you a lot of money. You will need just a tablespoon of turmeric and a couple of tablespoons of milk and this is it. Mix the two ingredients well and apply carefully the mixture on your above-the-lip area. It should be carefully, because milk can easily start running down your chin. Then let it dry there and rinse it with cool water. You may also have to use your fingers to remove it, because it will be stuck on your skin.
This one time will not eliminate permanently the hair growth on this area, so you have to repeat it 2 times a week for at least two weeks to see the results.
Recipe #4 Yogurt, besan, turmeric

Mix them well so that you have one homogenous paste.
Then just apply it on the upper lip area and wait for it to get completely dry. When you feel this area of your face quite stiff and dry, it means that it is time to remove the paste by rinsing it with cool water. Again, you may need some help from your fingers to take off the dry paste. Repeat this method every other day, and in some time you will be able to see the actual results.
