Are frustrated about your stubborn facial hair not going away no matter what you do? If you’ve tried just about every hair removal creams and products out there you’re not alone. For many people, facial hair removal is an uphill battle. Facial hair removal also happens to be one of the least understood beauty treatments, being often shrouded in old wives tales.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Getting rid of that stubborn facial hair is actually quite simple. All it takes is some patience and the right hair removal products.
1. Wet shaving
Wet shaving involves the use of a single or multi-blade razor, shaving soap or shaving cream. Wet shaving is a very effective method for facial hair reduction or removal. It’s actually faster and kinder to your skin than plucking, which can be pure torture to most people. However, most women think that if they shave their facial hair it will grow back thicker and coarser. Well, it’s simply a myth.
When done properly, wet shaving can actually produce a baby smooth face with just a few gentle strokes with your razor. Wet shaving is recommended here because it uses water and shaving soap or cream to hydrate the hair and keep it soft and easy to cut.
Map out the hair growth pattern of your facial hair and always shave with the grain during the first pass. You may do a second pass and shave against the grain for a closer shave. The best time to shave is after you’ve taken a shower as this softens and prepares your facial hair for shaving.
2. Facial Waxing
Another popular method for removing facial hair is waxing. First you need to know there are two types of wax: soft and hard. When using soft wax, you must pull of the hair using strips of cloth. Hard wax on the other hand doesn’t need pulling as it will do this on its own after it has hardened. This type of hair removal technique is effective for removing hairs from your chin, cheek, upper lip and neck area.
3 Depilatory Creams
Depilatory creams are highly effective for removing facial hair. However, some people have an allergic reaction to them. So it is best to do a skin patch before proceeding with this method.
They are easy to use too. All you have to do is apply the cream to your upper-lip area or where unwanted facial hair is growing. Let the product stand for a few minutes and then simply wipe the hair away with a moist cloth.
