How to Get Rid of Facial Hair by Tonya Zavasta

I found this article to be very informative on how to get rid of facial hair using only natural food ingredients, that is why I am reposting it on my blog. Like Tonya says, you have to be consistent and do it for a while, on a day-to-day basis to see results.

How to Get Rid of Facial Hair by Tonya Zavasta

What causes this condition?

Many women experience excess facial hair, especially as they age. The root of the problem: the overproduction of male hormones called androgens.

All women’s bodies generate these hormones, and commonly do so without producing excess hair. So long, that is, that hormone production levels stay normal. But several factors can pull androgen production beyond the normal.

Big factors here include heredity and obesity. Fat cells store androgens. Some medical conditions can lead to unwanted facial hair. Corticosteroid medications—prednisone, birth control pills, and hormone replacement treatments among these—can all affect hormone levels, too. Menopause can bring a decrease in the production of estrogen, also leading to darker and more prominent facial hair.

You can manage your facial hair growth with your diet.

Natural Remedies for Removing Facial Hair

Many natural remedies offer beneficial effects for your skin and will help you remove that pesky facial hair! Here are a few common topical home treatments that work well when repeated a couple of times a week…

Lemon juice and honey. Apply a mixture of 1 tbsp. of juice and 4 tbsp. honey. Remove gently after 15 minutes.

Raw papaya and turmeric powder. Create a paste combining 1 to 2 tbsp. raw papaya with ½ tsp. of turmeric powder. Massage onto face. Rinse away after 15 minutes.

Oatmeal and banana. Create a paste with 1 ripe banana and 1 to 2 tsps. of oats and massage into area for 15 minutes. Rinse off with water.

Water and turmeric powder. Create a paste by combining 1 to 2 tsps. of turmeric with water. Wash off after 15 minutes.

Basil and onion. Remove the thin translucent film from between the layers of two onions. Crush 10 to 12 leaves of basil with the film to create a paste. Apply the mixture to affected area. After 15 minutes, rinse off.

Organic gram flour and turmeric powder. Create a paste using 1-2 tsp. of turmeric with ¼ cup of flour and water. Apply to area and leave until dry. Wipe away gently with a warm cloth.

These methods will require consistency and patience. A few applications won’t do it. Nor will spotty use. Consistency over many weeks is what you’ll need for success.

Turmeric for Clear Skin

It’s a cluster of natural processes working together that give these remedies their powerful practical value: exfoliating, cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-oxidant properties. The one ingredient that appears most often in good homeopathic recipes is turmeric. Turmeric has been used for many generations across many cultures, for radiant, healthy skin. In addition to having anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it has also been shown to prevent excess hair growth. It’s nothing less than wonderful for the complexion.

This is why I’ve selected turmeric as one of the ingredients in my new GlaciClear Facial Masque, and combined it with several other nourishing elements, including Canadian Marine Glacial Clay, aloe vera, green tea, and chamomile extracts, for undeniably fresh, clean results.

Applying this masque daily will not only give you a glowing, blemish-free complexion, but it will keep the facial hairs at bay.

She is a great role model and testament to living a healthy vibrant lifestyle and retaining her youthful vigor and vitality.

More Dangerous Than Processed Foods by Frederic Patenaude

I used to think that eating processed foods was the worst possible thing you could do to your body.

I still think it’s in the top three, but after spending a lot of time over the last few years with some really sharp clinical practitioners, I’ve learned a few things about truly one of the worst things you can do to the body.

How can you prevent burnout as well as help you adrenals rebuild if you’re trashed them with stress, stimulants or nutritional deficiencies.

The Worst Thing You Can Do to Your Body?

One of the worst things that you can do to your body besides the obvious – drugs, eating junk food, excess sugar, etc – is putting it through emotional and environmental stress.

I know, you’ve heard me talk about the dangers of stress before, but let me get into a little more detail.

It’s not the actual stress that wrecks your health, it’s the chemical changes it causes in your body.

This is why it is possibly one of the worst things you can subject your body to.

As you know, stress can come from various sources…

Your thoughts
Your job
Your relationships
Over exercise
Excess sugar
Use of stimulants (coffee, teas, cacao, drugs)
These six things (and more) all can increase the amount of cortisol in the body.

Excess cortisol can interfere with a bunch of different processes causing poor health.

First is immunity.

If you have too much cortisol, you suppress immune function by suppressing the activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. This prevents the release of neurotransmitters that help immune function.

So basically, all you’ve heard about stress being related to illness is dead on.

If you’re stressed out, you’re going to get sick.

Second is how your metabolism is regulated and what you crave.

When you have too much stress, you can crave salty or fatty foods, or refined sugar.

Cravings of these foods are very real.

Many times, when you fix the adrenals and eliminate the stress, you can get rid of some of the physiological cravings – the emotional ones require a different set of skills to eliminate!

Third are cardiovascular issues.

Poor adrenal function leads to changes in how your body regulates heart rate and blood pressure.

Inability to regular your cardiovascular system can lead to poor circulation, high or low blood pressure and all diseases related to these issues, particularly hypertension.

Fourth is thinner skin and weaker bones.

Excess cortisol is directly related to thinner skin and weaker bones.

Weaker bones are related to the inability of hormones to regular body processes as well as the excess acidity that is created in the body when excess cortisol is present.

Managing stress and making sure you have plenty of minerals and vitamin D is a much better strategy than drugs for those who have symptoms or signs of osteoporosis.

I hope that helps you understand why you need to take care of your adrenals.

I know from experience what it’s like to have adrenal fatigue and it’s not anything I’d wish on anyone.

The best thing to do is take preventative steps to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, instead of waiting until you’ve damaged your adrenals and then struggle to fix them.
