Salt and Facial Hair: According to vasant lad, author of "the complete book of ayurvedic home remedies, " the turmeric and salt slows hair growth and encourages the hair to fall out. The process is slower than chemical depilatories -- taking several days -- but is also more gentle on the skin. Turmeric is a common cooking spice and is available from the spice section of most grocery stores.
