I am looking for as natural solutions as possible. I used to use a cream before, but I noticed my skin was allergic to it, so I stopped it. Then I got this facial hair trimmer and used it for years, but I started noticing more growth with it - Panasonic Women's Facial Trimmer | Ulta Beauty

My hair became thick and it's growing much faster than before. I also want to get rid of the facial hair permanently and was thinking of laser treatment, but I have read reviews about the side effects of it too. How do you all remove your facial hair?

I don't, because I hear removing it just makes it come back thicker. Many dark-haired women may bleach the peach fuzz on their mouth. Since my hair is already white, there's no need. hell, you can barely see my eyebrows. Let alone any other facial hair I may have. lol

You can TRY laser treatment. But I hear sometimes even that isn't 100% and the hair still grows back even thicker than before.

You can try the Clio Shaver, which can be found on Amazon. I use it for my armpits -a close shave without fear of cutting. Because you can press it directly against skin and it doesn't cut like a razor. It's also waterproof, best used on moist skin to avoid any possible or potential irritation. But goes without saying lol

Face and eyebrow - I get them threaded by this lady I know. She waxes my sideburn and threads rest of the face. I don't want to wax because the pull on skin might make skin saggy in my old age. Plus I got used to threading


Arms and Legs - I get them waxed every 2-3 months (so they get really long to the point of unbearable) by my friend. I pay her small fee & we get to hangout while getting waxing done. We catch up and sometimes I pick up dinner. It is nice hangout and I get something done.


I use to use cream but those are bad for you and I use to shave and that makes things darker. With waxing I have already noticed lighter hair with in 1 year. It is expensive at salon, so I suggest find a friend. My friend misses many spots and she isn't as relaxing/painless but the price I pay, I accept the shabby job

I don't have any, but man I would sure hesitate to try and remove it since that means it comes back much thicker.

No.

No, it doesn't.

Removal doesn't cause hair to grow back thicker. You don't gain follicles because you remove hair.

Unwanted facial hair isn't a big issue for me. If I get a stray brow hair, I tweeze it. Nothing else is really necessary.

The idea that removing it makes it grow thicker is an old wive's tale/common misconception.

I pluck with a tweezer. I do like threading, I just never get it done.

During my pregnancies I had some odd strands of facial hair caused by hormonal changes, which I had removed with threading. They never grew back.

Otherwise, facial hair has never been a problem for me. But if it were, I'd consider laser hair removal. I know women who had very problematic facial hair who had laser hair removal. The treatment took a few years, but it was worth it. They all have smooth faces now with no more facial hair growth.

I have one hair on the side of my face...I pluck it whenever it appears (about once a month or so).

Laser didn't work for me. The hair came back after several treatments. So I'm plucking it. I use an epilator for the chin and bleach for the mustache.
