So I confess, I have started shaving every few months and it works great. It's a myth that you will grow a beard if you shave.

So....do you shave too?
No, I don’t really care about peach fuzz, but I do use tweezers for the areas that grow more than peach fuzz.

Nope. I wouldn't worry about things like that.

If the peach fuzz doesn’t bother you, then there’s certainly no need to do anything about it. No one is suggesting that it’s something you should be self conscious about. But there’s nothing wrong with some of us choosing to shave it off for a smoother surface. I’m not sure why this has to be a right or wrong situation. Like so many other things, you do what works for you.

Then don't do it. My peach fuzz is very light in color but very "dense", especially on the sides of my face. And I'd be lying if at age 55 I didn't mention I have a couple very dark hairs in my chin area I have to worry about. A 30 second shave gets rid of all of it.

I started swiping weird hairs on my lip and now every once in a while I'll shave my upper lip.

I do once in awhile. It makes my face feel so soft!

I haven't tried it, but once menopause hits I probably will. When I see older women with facial hair it's a reminder to myself that as we age, and we start growing weird hairs in weird places, that's the same time that are eyes/vision start to go! So we may not be able to see the weird hairs once they start showing up! Life can be so unfair.

I don't shave my face, but as I've gotten older (currently in my 30's), I've noticed random chin hairs sprouting out that I tweeze regularly. I foresee laser hair removal in my future once I have my baby.

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.
