One in ten women is a sufferer of excess stubborn facial hair, with the most common cause of this being hormone imbalance. There is no cure available for this problem that so many women struggle with. The contraceptive pill can in some cases correct this imbalance, but side effects often outway the advantages.
The pill is not suitable for everybody, and definitely not a guaranteed cure. Therefore hair removal, such as shaving or waxing, seems to be the only option available.
The constant removal of stubborn facial hair can not only prove damaging for your skin but can be damaging to one’s confidence as well. Here are some of the less effective ways of removing facial hair.
Shaving is the method used by many women is ordered temporarily remove facial hair. However, shaving can be harsh and damaging to the skin on sensitive facial areas.
Shaving also, of course, means stubble. If you don’t want to get into the cycle of having to shave your face every single day through fear of stubble, shaving should be avoided.
It also means that ingrown hairs are more likely to appear on the face, not helping to improve your self-confidence.
Razor burn is also likely if you do not shave correctly, which again can be damaging to your confidence as well as your skin.
Not only this, but it is time-consuming if done daily.
Waxing is also a common method of hair removal, and while doesn’t create stubble in the same way shaving does it is still damaging to your skin.
Waxing is not great for your skin, as it often creates red patches and makes your skin more sensitive. For up to 24 hours after waxing your skin is also more prone to infection.
The bottom line is, waxing can be painful. Putting hot wax onto the most sensitive areas of your face, then ripping out your facial hair surely isn’t the best solution to this age old problem.
