How to deal with unexpected hair on face

By Glowpink Staff   

No girl like hair on face and wants to get rid of them as soon as possible, but everyone should be very careful while removing them because wrong way to remove can increase rate of hair growth and volume and also facial skin is very sensitive.

Below there are some tips on how to deal with facial hair and the pros and the cons of some of the most popular methods.

1. Don’t shave facial hair

Men shave their facial hair daily, but remember, you also often see a 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.

2. Waxing

How to remove facial hair? One option is to get the affected area waxed. Just like any other wax, a facial wax will remove the hairs by their roots, so it will last for several weeks. The downside, though, is that your face, especially your upper lip, is very sensitive and there is no denying that waxing your face will hurt. Having said that, the pain doesn’t last for long, so you might think it’s a small price to pay for a few hair-free weeks.

3. Threading

If waxing sounds too painful for you then, for smaller areas of the face, threading is an alternative that you might prefer. Threading is more commonly used for shaping eyebrows, but it is just as effective for removing facial hair. Threading is far less painful than waxing and it will leave your skin feeling lovely and smooth.

4. Bleaching

Another tip on how to remove facial hair is to try bleaching. Depending on your skin tone, you could dye or bleach your facial hair to make it is less visible. You can buy kits that are made especially for the purpose and this is a completely painless way to make facial hair much less of a problem.

5. Depilatory creams

Another painless way to remove facial hair is with hair removal creams. Known as depilatory treatments, these creams or lotions dissolve the unwanted hair completely. You have to be very careful to follow the instructions, though, because misuse can lead to chemical burns on the face and even scarring.

6. Laser treatment

Laser treatment removes the hair by destroying the root with pulses of light. This is a long-lasting treatment that may become permanent after a few treatments. It is, however, quite expensive to have done and you may need a regular touch up treatments to keep the hair away.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. Electrolysis

How to remove facial hair permanently? Electrolysis is, after a few treatments, a permanent solution to the problem of facial hair. The treatment works by giving the hair a small electric shock, which kills the hair follicle and stops the hair growing. The downsides are: that it is a time-consuming treatment, a relatively expensive one and it can be painful, though not as painful as waxing is.

10. 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. But, if you like to rely on highly effective and inexpensive home remedies to remove facial hair, then read this DIY facial hair removal recipe.
