While it doesn’t pose any health risks, unwanted hair (“unwanted” being the operative word here) can be an embarrassing condition for many people. Hormonal imbalances, irregular menstrual cycles, certain medications, post pregnancy hormonal changes, etc. can all cause unwanted hair issues for women.

Let it sit for few minutes till it dries and then start scrubbing the paste applied areas. Scrub the area gently and rinse off with cold water.
