Facial hair on women was never considered a feminine attribute and can cause a problem for one’s self esteem. Getting rid of facial hair has been a problem for women across the world for a long time.
The cosmetic industry has brought several products and methods used to remove facial hair, depending on what we desire.
Here are some methods that can be used to get rid of the unwanted facial hair:
Plucking Plucking the unwanted hair on eyebrows, nose, chin, jaw line and upper lip with the tweezers can be a good option if you have thin and light hair. It is a bit painful but effective.
Hair removal lotions and creams These are very easy to use. You can choose from a variety of brands and use them on almost every part of your body. They cause no pain and take only a few minutes to get rid of hair.
The down side is the short term effect and that it can’t be used around the eyes. Get the proper product for your skin type to avoid any irritations or breakouts.
Bleaching products Can be considered an option for fine facial hair, hair that is not too obvious, but be careful while trying it for the first time because they are chemical products and may cause allergic reactions.
Waxing You can get facial waxing at a cosmetic salon or you can do it yourself using wax strips. Waxing can be a bit painful but it is highly effective.
Permanent Hair Removal You can use different methods of permanent hair removal treatments like electrolysis, laser treatments or IPL/SPL treatments. They will eliminate the hair permanently but at a higher cost.
