Unfortunately, everyone gets hair on their face in some way. Some people may want to get rid of this hair as quickly as possible and make it stay away! There are many different ways you can get rid of hair on your face. It may take a little trial and error to find the technique that works best for you depending on your hair and comfort level.
- Shaving continues to be the fastest and easiest way to remove hair. Unfortunately, you could cut yourself or get razor bumps. Shaving cuts hair at the skin’s surface so the hair will grow back pretty quickly. You have to be very careful when you shave and use a moisturizing shaving cream. You should also moisturize right after.
- Tweezing is another quick way to remove hair. It pulls hair from the roots, so it will not grow back as quickly. However, this method can be pretty painful. It can help to use a steamer to open the pores or use a warm washcloth. If you do experience redness and pain from tweezing, rub the area with an ice cube. Also, make sure to disinfect your tweezers each time with alcohol before you use it on your face.
- Waxing is similar to tweezing because it removes hair at the root, but you can wax a larger area at once. This can save time, but it can also be painful. You can get your face waxed at a professional salon or try it at home with a kit. If you use an at-home kit, test a small area to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction.
- If you’re ready for a more expensive and long-term treatment, try a laser hair removal. Laser hair removal involves using a laser to damage hair follicles so the hair doesn’t grow back. Sometimes, the hair will grow back after six months or so, but it will be finer and less noticeable.
- Depilatory creams. Depilatory creams are chemical creams that break down the proteins in your hair making them dissolve. You should also test a small area to make sure your skin isn’t irritated.
- Last, but not least is threading. Many people use threading for their eyebrows and upper lip. It pulls and twists hair from the follicle and can last a little longer than shaving or even tweezing.
What is your favorite way to remove hair on your face? Will you try an alternative method to see if it works better for you? You can also discuss all of your options with your dermatologist.
