I hope some women who are in their 40's and 50's chip in here to say they have been shaving their faces since they were in their 20's. I'm wondering if they regret starting shaving? The reason I ask is that I am just afraid for all of you younger women that shave your faces, that as you age the peach fuzz will get more coarse and you'll end up with stubble like men do.

Think it can't/doesn't happen? My brother married a woman when she was in her 50's, so I don't know what her facial hair was like when she was younger. She had a rather large round face and when she hugged our family upon arrival at family events, my boys used to laugh and make jokes afterwards about getting whisker burns. It was certainly true. Her face felt exactly like going cheek to cheek with a man. Just be careful that shaving that peach fuzz doesn't come back to bite you in the ass.

I use a facial hair removal product to get rid of the hair around my mouth. It happens when you age, along with the long hairs that sprout along your chin line.

On the other hand, the rate and amount of growth of hair on my legs has slowed right down. I hardly have to shave my legs any more... maybe 5 times/ summer. It is the same with my eyebrows. There is less and less hair to pluck and for some strange reason, it doesn't hurt like it used to lol.

I have to wax my upper lip and shave my chin hairs. I’d do the laser thing, but it only works on dark hair, and mine is light.

It one of my greatest fears that I’ll get too old and out of it to remove it. After chemo I had downy hair, like peach fuzz on my face. I shaved it off and it never came back.

Well...I'm in my 60's, and started shaving my face in my 50's. I don't do it regularly...just once in awhile, when I think about it, because it DOES make my face feel soooo soft. It's not a maintenance thing (for me) at all.


And no, the hair doesn't come back stubbly, at least, not for me.

lol I bought one of those by accident.
I saw an ad for one for eyebrows.
The company makes an eye brow one and a face one and I got the wrong one.
So I use it to shave the one blonde hair that grows on my big toe because I always forget to shave it.
I can't stand to see it glimmering in the sun.

But no I don't shave my face.
I will wax or pluck my eyebrows because I think brows look better defined.
When they are they open up the eyes more and they draw more attention to your cheek bones.

But my eyebrows aren't a mess or anything.
I don't have to really do anything to them.
So I'm not one of those people that needs to wax them because if I don't it looks like I only have one or like I have two bushy ones or anything.
And I don't need to wax my mustache because I don't have one.
I don't have that peach fuzz problem many others have either.
Maybe it's because I've been using a peel off mask at least once a month since I was a teen.
Or maybe my face just doesn't grow hair on it just like my arms don't.
The hair on my legs is platinum blonde and very fine.
If I don't shave my legs for a while the only way you can tell is if direct sunlight catches the fine blonde hairs.
Other then that my legs will appear shaved even if they aren't.
The only reason they get shaved as much as they do is for exfoliation purposes.

I like that if I was stranded on a desert island for six months with no beauty supplies I would look exactly the same when I would get rescued as I would have looked when I got stranded.
Most girls would end up with black hairy arms because they couldn't bleach them or shave them, gorilla legs, one eye brow or two bushy eyebrows and a mustache.

It makes sense that it would make your skin feel softer.
Kind of like a dermaplaning situation.

Yes, thanks...exactly how I'd look. It's a silly kind of thing - if ya don't need to do hair removal then obviously you don't care and don't do it. If you do, then you do <shrug> Some people are lucky enough to be blonde or super low testosterone or don't have anyone that cares and other people...don't have that luck.

But I don't think a facial mask has anything to do with hair - do you see a bunch of hair come off with it?

I was being facetious. Not really serious. I guess maybe it didn't come across funny. I have to remember that I'm typing and not f2f and things could be misinterpreted.....by the way, not so much hairy but plenty of peach fuzz.
