  1. 1

    Waxing your upper lip is one of the most common ways to remove unwanted hair. You can go to a salon to have your upper lip waxed, or you can purchase the wax hair removal strips at natural food stores and chemists.

  2. 2

    Threading is a relatively new way women are getting rid of upper lip hair. Threading is not something you can do at home, but trained professionals can use thread to remove unwanted hair. This method of hair removal is growing in popularity because it is inexpensive and painless.

  3. 3

    Prepare a paste made with chickpea flour and water. Use your fingers to apply the paste to your upper lip. Allow the paste to dry. Scrub off the dried paste using a dry washcloth or your finger tips.

  4. 4

    Bleaching the hair on your upper lip is another natural way to cover up unwanted hair. Apply lemon juice to your upper lip with a cotton ball. Leave the lemon juice on your lip for fifteen minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Although this method will not remove the hair, it will lighten the upper lip hair so that it is less visible. Lemon juice may contribute to sensitivity to the sun, so be careful with sun exposure.

Tips and warnings

  • The chickpea paste mixture should only be used by women with fine hair on their upper lip. This home remedy will not be useful for women with dense hair.
