Hair Removal Vol.4: Facial Hair

  1. Waxing: Nice, smooth, long lasting results. Damages the skin if done too often. Can aggravate acne! Best used only for eyebrows and upper lip. Not a good choice for beginners, you can burn yourself or rip off your eyebrows.
  2. Epilating: Same as above, but won’t damage skin. I would not let this anywhere near my eyebrows!
  3. Tweezing: A good choice for keeping up with the shape of your eyebrows. If doing your own shaping, be careful not to over-tweeze! Wouldn’t recommend it for any other kind of facial hair.
  4. Bleaching: Very good method for fine hair on the cheeks, chin, etc.  Use on your upper lip ONLY if you have extremely fine hair, otherwise you will still have a mustache, just a blond one.  Yikes!  Also, also do the allergy test beforehand!
  5. Shaving: Either with creams, small shapers, or electrical trimmers, it’s a fast choice.  Fast, but be careful not to shave off an eyebrow or something. If you have very dark hair, this will leave a grayish shadow under the skin. Hair grows back quickly, but easy to remove again!

Hair Removal Vol.2: Epilating

Pros

–          Same smooth results as waxing.

–          Equally long lasting.

–          Inexpensive (I’ve had my epilator for over six years now, it has saved me a ton of money! It’s a one from Braun, my mother has a Remington one but I prefer mine.)

–          Not messy.

–          Doesn’t touch the skin, so won’t strip off your tan.

 

Cons

–          The mere sound of it scares the heck out of people.

–          Painful, but I got used to it with time.

–          If you have a problem with ingrown hair, this will definitely aggravate it.

–          Time consuming if you want to get every little hair, and most of us do.

 

 

 

Tips

 

–          If ingrown hair are a problem for you, then regular exfoliating and moisturizing of the skin will reduce them.

–         Some epilators come with little massage heads or ice packs attached to them to reduce the pain.

–         Others can be used in the shower but I wouldn’t recommend them, as being in the shower doesn’t let you be thorough and remove every little hair.
