Tips and Advice to Remove Facial Hair

A lot of women love the look and feel of facial hair on their man, but facial hair on themselves is never a welcome sight! Every person has facial hair, but it surely becomes an issue when it is visible on a woman’s face. It can look unseemly and affect a woman’s confidence. Luckily there are lots of ways to deal with it and different products work well for different areas of the face.

Waxing:

This is a very common technique and can be used on many parts of the face. Many women get their eyebrows waxed as an essential part of their beauty regime, as it can be used on the upper lip, chin, and cheeks. You could pay a beautician to remove the hair for you in a salon, but that could mean being out in public with temporary red patches on your face, when it’s just as easy (and potentially much cheaper) to do it in the privacy of your own home. Veet’s easy-grip wax strips are specially designed for the precision needed on the sensitive skin on your face. These can give you up to four weeks of smooth skin after use.

Threading:

Threading is another method that is very popular for many different areas of the face, especially the eyebrows. However, if you don’t know how to do this yourself, you will need a trained beautician do it for you. Luckily, this doesn’t always mean a trip to the salon as there are now threading kiosks popping up in most shopping malls and beauty stores. Threading is very precise as you can remove a single hair at a time (as well as a whole row of hair at once) which makes it a great method for shaping eyebrows.

Bleaching:

This method is mostly used to bleach upper lip hairs so that they become less noticeable. You can apply the special facial bleach at home and after ten minutes, remove it with cold water. There is no risk of ingrown hairs as you aren’t removing the hair from the follicle. However, this also means that the surface will not be completely smooth and hairless. The hairs will still be there, just less noticeable than before. Bear in mind that bleach contains several chemicals that might sting the skin or cause rashes, so do read the instructions very carefully before use.

Plucking:

This is quite a slow process that involves using a pair of tweezers to pluck out one hair at a time. It can be painful, but is very precise when trying to remove that one remaining hair! It is a great trick for removing any stray hairs that have been missed, during waxing for instance.  It is good to invest in a good pair of tweezers for best results as cheaper ones could make the process much trickier!

Intense Light Pulse Technology (IPL):

IPL is a great option if you are looking for a more long-lasting solution. The device works by targeting the pigmented cells within the hair shaft, and delivering short bursts of light into hair follicles, stopping growth right at the root. This is a solution one can use at home for facial hair.

Depilatory Cream:

This is well known as a great hair removal technique for larger areas of the body, but did you know it is also a great option for facial hair removal? Veet’s Facial Hair Removal Creams are great for sensitive skin, enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E which help soothe delicate facial skin.
