Facial hair is hair grown on the face, usually on the chin, cheeks, and upper lip region. Having facial hair, as a lady, can be a result of hormonal changes, genetics, or simply be a harmless condition that does not signal about any problems with your body.

However, noticing the growth of facial hair can be quite distressing for a woman. Here are the 5 best methods to remove facial hair safely and effectively.

1. Shaving

Shaving is probably one of the first hair removal methods one can think about. It is is one of the fastest and easiest ways to remove hair. Shaving works best on the areas of your face that are densely covered with fine hairs.

Contrary to a popular myth, shaving does not make new hairs grow out thicker and darker, but you will need to shave your face every couple of days to maintain that smooth look.

The best way to shave your face is after a shower, when your skin is soft, and don’t forget to apply your favourite moisturizer afterwards to prevent irritation. Don’t shave the same patch of skin more than once and use a good sharp razor to avoid cuts and rashes.

2. Hair Removal Creams

If you want your hair removal process to be as painless as possible, you should consider hair removal creams. Unlike hair removal creams that were produced decades ago, modern products don’t have any strong smell and are gentle on your skin.

They work by weakening the hairs, allowing you to scrape them away along with the leftover cream after some time passes. This method works best for areas that are densely covered in hairs, but the hairs are not too dark and thick, otherwise, the cream may not be as effective, or you may need to keep it on your skin longer than recommended, which can lead to irritation.

3. Threading

You may be already familiar with threading – it’s one of the most popular ways to shape your eyebrows next to tweezing.

Threading is usually recommended to be performed by a professional, but if you already have enough experience with threading your eyebrows, you can transfer your skills to other areas where hair bothers you, including your chin and upper lip area.

Threading can be quite painful, especially during the first few procedures, so you may want to numb your skin with a special cream or an ice cube. If you have breakouts in the target area, threading can make things worse, so it’s best to withhold the procedure until your skin calms down.

4. Waxing

Waxing is one of the most painful methods to remove facial hair and it’s only recommended for areas where a lot of hair grows in one place – for example, on your cheekbones or above your upper lip.

However, since a waxing strip removes the hair completely and not just its visible part, its results last longer and you don’t need to repeat the procedure too often.

Today, you can find a variety of products for waxing, including strips and DIY home waxing kits. This method is not the best option for sensitive skin that is easily irritated, and it can sometimes lead to ingrown hairs.

5. Laser Hair Removal

Out of all the hair removal methods described on our list, laser hair removal is the most expensive one, but it’s also one of the most effective ones.

By applying heat to your hair, the laser kills the follicle and prevents the growth of new hair in that place. Salon laser hair removal is the preferred option simply because the beautician can properly assess the state of your skin and whether the procedure is right for you, since it works best on dark, long hairs.

However, you can also buy home laser hair removal devices online, but you need to be extra careful when using them.
