If you are a woman with unwanted facial hair, you know how frustrating, embarrassing, and annoying this problem can be. Once you notice the hair on your upper lip, cheeks, or chin, you can’t think of anything else when you look in a mirror. If you are self-conscious about your facial hair, there is good news: you don’t have to live with it! There are several ways you can remove facial hair. In this blog, we will go over them, as well as why waxing is the best choice.

Shaving

Far and away, shaving is the worst option for women when it comes to removing unwanted facial hair, but it has seen a recent surge in popularity. Many women are under the impression that shaving your face is a good way to remove hair and exfoliate at the same time. However, razors can be extremely irritating to your skin, and when it comes to the delicate skin on your face, this problem is exacerbated. Razor burn is inevitable, and you can get ingrown hairs. Additionally, if you have any acne, shaving can open these pimples and cause even more irritation. Finally, shaving just isn’t an efficient way to remove facial hair; you will have to shave every other day or so to prevent obvious hair regrowth, and when you shave, the hair grows back as thick stubble.


Plucking

Using tweezers to pluck facial hair out is another common facial hair removal method. Plucking is a better option than shaving for several reasons. First of all, it actually removes the hair from the root, so you don’t have to pluck as often as you would shaving. Additionally, if you only have one or two stray hairs, plucking allows you to precisely remove hair. However, if you have more than that, plucking is an extremely time-consuming process. Also, because you have to remove each individual hair, it is much more painful than waxing.


Depilatories

Some women choose to use depilatory creams such as Nair to remove their facial hair. The main benefit of depilatories is that they are inexpensive, but the positives pretty much stop there. Depilatories are not the best method of hair removal for several reasons. First off, they can be very messy, and do not offer very precise hair removal. Additionally, depilatories emit a strong chemical smell that can be bothersome, particularly when it is on your upper lip. Many people have allergic reactions to these strong chemicals, especially on the sensitive facial skin. Finally, the results of using a depilatory don’t last very long.

Threading

Hair threading is a hair removal method that has been growing in popularity recently and is similar to waxing. Like waxing, you need to go to a salon to have it done, as it requires a special technique. Additionally, threading lasts around the same amount of time as waxing, and the hair grows back finer, as it does with waxing. However, threading is significantly more painful than waxing, and because it is more specialized, it can be difficult to get an appointment to be threaded.


Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a newer method of hair removal that sounds great in theory. After all, who wouldn’t want to permanently remove the unwanted hair from their face? However, in practice, laser hair removal presents some issues. First off, this procedure often requires expensive sessions with a dermatologist. This cost is prohibitive to many, especially since laser hair removal isn’t guaranteed to work; some people do still experience hair regrowth after paying for what they thought was permanent hair removal. Additionally, laser hair removal doesn’t work for everyone; if you have darker skin, you are advised to refrain from laser hair removal because you run a greater risk of burns. Depending on how many sessions you need, laser hair removal can take quite a long time to complete and can be an extremely painful process as well.

Waxing

To us, the choice seems obvious, but to each their own. Waxing is the best way to remove hair from your face for several reasons. First of all, waxing lasts for weeks, ensuring that you don’t have to waste your time constantly worrying about your facial hair. Additionally, when done properly, waxing isn’t as painful as other methods, particularly after you have started getting regular waxes and the hair begins to grow back lighter and thinner. Waxing is also a quick method of hair removal; a facial waxing service shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes, if that. Whether you want to wax your chin, cheeks, or upper lip, come in for your waxing services and see for yourself the benefits of waxing!
