Methods of removing facial hair have been around for decades, and with the surge of new tools and technologies, beauty experts say it’s even easier to get rid of fuzz.
HAIR REMOVAL CREAM
I’ve actually been trying to get rid of my moustache since I was 15 and one of my friends (who happens to be a boy) told me it was really obvious. As a paranoid teenager, I ran home and raided my mum’s beauty cupboard and found a Nair Brush On Hair Removal Cream that I’ve been using ever since and I got myself into a bit of a vicious circle, now always having to remove the hair there.
Remove Unwanted Hair from Upper Lip at Home
The pros are that it’s quick, painless and gets rid of every last hair. But annoyingly, I’ve found that hair does grow back slightly darker and it’s something I have to keep on top of, making sure I slap a bit of cream on every fortnight or so. My skin is quite sensitive too and using it sometimes leaves it looking slightly red, so I always keep a tube of aloe vera gel on hand to soothe it.
Waxing is best done by a professional, it’s not worth risking burns or causing scabs doing it at home, and salons can select the most safe and gentle formulas for the face. Depending on your pain threshold it can be pretty unpleasant or you might just feel a wincey tug, but either way waxing provides clean hair removal for up to a month and costs around the same price as threading – which, of course, varies.
The best way to make your waxing experience less painful is to do it regularly so you can target the different stages of hair growth.
