There are any reasons that a woman can develop facial hair and, although more often associated with women of certain ethnic groups and older women, facial hair can become more visible on any woman of any age. For some people, the growth of facial hair could be as a result of their genes and for others, it can be brought on by hormonal changes. Whatever the cause, when facial hair does become noticeable on a woman, it can lead to embarrassment and it can cause anxiety too. There are many different ways that facial hair can be removed or made less visible, though, so here are some tips on how to deal with facial hair and the pros and the cons of some of the most popular methods.
Don’t shave facial hair: Men shave their facial hair daily, but remember, you also often see man with small cuts on their faces, not to mention stubble by the end of the day. Women really should avoid shaving facial hair, because it doesn’t provide you with a long lasting solution and it could even make matters worse than if you had left the hair on your face.
Tweezing: You could, of course, try removing the excess facial hair yourself with tweezers. It’s effective, it’s cheap and it won’t be as painful as waxing. The big downside to tweezing, though, is that it will be very time consuming for larger areas of the face.
Sugaring: Sugaring is very similar to waxing, but it is said to be a lot less painful. A paste of sugar and lemon is applied to the skin and then dragged off, against the direction of hair growth and then removed in the opposite direction, removing the hairs by the roots, just as the case with waxing, sugaring is only a temporary solution and the treatment would have to be repeated regularly.
Don’t panic unnecessarily: A lot of women obsess about facial hair unnecessarily, so don’t let that happen to you. If you look closely enough, you will find fine hairs on everyone’s face and yours might be completely invisible to everyone else. If you do find hair growing unexpectedly, then it could be due to a hormonal change in your body. If you do suspect that this is the case, then visit your doctor, who will be able to give you advice on a suitable treatment.
