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.1: Waxing

Pros

–          Leaves skin silky smooth.

–          Lasts up to 4 weeks (which is an urban myth for most women, I give it 2 weeks tops, but it’s still long enough compared to other methods).

–          Exfoliates by removing dead cells.

 

Cons

–          The hairs need to be quite long to be successfully removed.  This means that you are stuck with hairy body parts in between waxes.  Not the best thing if you have a boyfriend.

–          Can strip off your tan faster.

–          Ingrown hair.

–          Messy if done at home, expensive if done at a salon.

–           Painful.

 

 

Tips

–          Powder the skin beforehand with baby powder, it makes everything so much easier.

–          Use sugar wax, it’s the easiest to handle.

–          Use the cloth strips, not the paper ones.  They grab hairs a lot better.

–          Be patient!!!  Frustration is your worst enemy when handling hot wax!  Practice makes perfect.
