Underarm hair removal using a turmeric and milk paste is a traditional and natural method that has been used for generations. Turmeric, known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, combined with milk’s exfoliating effect, makes this paste an effective and gentle hair removal option.


  • 2 tablespoons turmeric powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or yogurt for a thicker consistency)


  1. In a bowl, mix the turmeric powder and milk (or yogurt) to create a smooth and thick paste. Turmeric has staining properties, so it’s essential to wear old clothing or use a dark towel during the application process.
  2. Ensure your underarms are clean and dry before applying the paste. Avoid using any creams or lotions beforehand.


  1. Using your fingers or a spatula, apply a generous layer of the turmeric and milk paste to your underarms. Make sure to cover all the hair you wish to remove.
  2. Allow the paste to dry for about 15-20 minutes. As it dries, it forms a thin, rubbery layer on the skin.
  3. Once the paste is completely dry, gently rub it off in the opposite direction of hair growth. The dried paste will cling to the hair and pull it out from the roots, similar to waxing.
  4. Rinse off any residue with warm water and pat your underarms dry.


  • Turmeric has natural antiseptic properties that help soothe the skin and prevent inflammation or redness after hair removal.
  • The milk in the paste acts as an exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and promoting a smooth underarm texture.
  • Regular use of this paste may lead to hair thinning and reduced growth over time.


  • Turmeric can leave a temporary yellow stain on the skin, which usually fades after a few hours. If you have fair skin, it’s advisable to perform a patch test before using the paste on a larger area.
  • As with any hair removal method, some individuals may experience skin sensitivity or allergic reactions to the ingredients. Discontinue use if you notice any adverse effects.

Underarm hair removal using a turmeric and milk paste is a natural and cost-effective alternative to conventional hair removal methods. While results may vary among individuals, consistent use of this paste can lead to smoother and softer underarms. However, it’s essential to perform a patch test and practice caution to ensure a safe and successful hair removal experience.
