I have always had a a problem with a hairy body. Most of it has been from the waist and below. I hate it! I have shaved my legs for a long time. It was in the beginning of my teenage years I started. First I only shaved from the knee down. Soon I had to shave my whole legs. Hair on your body is one thing because you can hade it with clothes. Facial hair is a whole different thing.
I have removed hair on my upper lip for a long time. When I was younger I didn’t have that much and it was easy to remove. The older I got the more hair I got. Now I’m going through menopause and………….hair grows everywhere on my face. All the hair is very blond but because there are lots hair you easily see it! Since my menopause began I’ve noticed hair on my cheeks and chin I didn’t have before. The hair on my cheeks are also long. Blond but long. On the chin the hair isn’t that long but there are many little hairs. Before I only removed the upper lip hair but now I remove my chin also. I remember when I went to a spa for a facial and upper lip hair removal. The women doing the facial said over and over “You only want to remove the hair on your upper lip”? Meaning she wanted to remove my chin and hair too. Then I didn’t think it was such a big problem but then I realized how bad it was.
Now I remove hair from my upper lip and chin. I always use wax. Some hairs are too short to remove with wax. Then I use a tweezer. Most of you know about the trend of shaving your face. I would never do that because my hair would grow back black! I always use wax strips because it’s the easiest way to wax I think. I never use the strips for facial hair. That’s because they’re too small and less effective. I use wax strips for under arms. Very effective!
My advice when it comes to waxing the face (which I think most of you already are aware of) is to begin with a clean face. There should be no creams or oils on it. Pull the wax strips in the opposite way the hair grows. Never wax any area more than once. After you’ve done waxing apply olive oil or any oil you have available. Don’t put perfumed skincare on the waxed areas. Not only does is it uncomfortable but it can harm the skin. After a wax your hair grows back after some weeks but it feels good to look at your face and find no hair.
