How I felt when walking to my workplace, a fellow colleague handed me a depilatory cream! I hit rock bottom that very second. My day was miserable and a total mess. Imagine this happening to you! How would you feel? Thankfully, this was just a nightmare I had today, but it can be real if I’m not attentive to these tiny hairs sticking out of my face.
Here are five simple procedures that say good bye to facial hair:
Just tweeze it baby: Tweezers are normally used for shaping eyebrows and removing irritating nose hairs. However, tweezers can be a handy tool to get rid of unwanted facial hair. They are great when it comes to plucking fine long hairs above the lips or on the chin.
Epilate with depilatory cream: These creams can help you remove small, fine hair on the face. However, they should not be applied anywhere around the eyes as this will irritate your skin. For effective results, you will have to apply the cream on a regular basis.
Razor it away: Many skin care companies design special shaving blades for women. The up side is that these blades are very gentle in removing facial hair. The flip side is that you will have to keep shaving regularly as the hair tends to grow back quickly and may roughen your skin.
Bleach it up: Ok, so you don’t want to shave or depilate because you fear that your hair will grow fast and be thick. In that case a bleaching cream can be really convenient as it does not remove the hair but just lightens it. However, before you start, it is a good idea to test a bleaching cream on a small area of the skin. This helps you to avoid an allergic reaction and also check for the efficacy of the product.
Wax wonder: Wax is usually used for body hair removal. But, there are niche facial wax strips available these days that aid in removing hair from prominent areas of the face. You need to apply these strips onto your skin and within minutes your skin will be hairless, smooth and supple.
Just a word of caution, no matter what method you use there could be a slight discomfort or irritation to your skin.
