Can’t believe it?
This is for real.
Being a woman, I deeply understand the pain of removing facial hair, or hair in general; except for the ones on the head. These ones are just easy to cut like a piece of cake, right?!
Your face is the most prominent part of your body.
It’s what catches everyone’s eye, and hence it is the most “worked on” part of the human figure.
Sometimes I wish we could use personality as our face, but then I remind myself of all the negative traits I have and I thank God for the face He gave me.
When it comes to facial hair, I have seen women develop OCD because of that one little prick of a hair, on the chin; it won’t come out from the middle of nowhere and won’t get plucked out now what so ever!
This struggle is sooooo…… real!
The most disturbing part about having facial hair is that for most women, it leaves a green-ish shade on the skin that looks so similar to a man’s skin after shave. Ironically, if you look at your face too much, you may develop temporary depression staring at that shade! Moreover, with facial hair, no matter how much makeup you put on, and what brand it belongs to, your face just won’t look “as good!”

How to Remove Artificial hair with 9 Easy Methods and their Cons
This technique to remove hair is although very common and widespread all around the world, it does come
s with some serious set of cons such as:
- Redness and swelling
- Acne reaction
- Burn marks
- And saggy skin in the long run
This may be one of the cheapest ways to remove facial hair. Since the hair does not get extracted from the roots, it grows back quickly; leaving you helpless and having to go to the parlour very often. Furthermore, threading is a very painful process, that may cause redness similar to the one caused after waxing.
Indeed, this is among the easiest methods to apply and not at all painful way to remove hair. Despite that, in my opinion, it’s the worse thing to do your skin. Razor makes the skin as rough as man’s skin after shave, and in case of unwanted cuts, it may cause infections, bleeding and marks.
Yet another widely used technique to remove facial hair at home or at the parlour is bleaching. This one stays for longer than other techniques and allows you to camouflage hair into your skin tone. But it can also burn your skin, cause irritation and damage the skin from the use of chemicals.
With the persisting disadvantages to the techniques mentioned above, many women have started to move towards safer, easy to do and natural ways to remove facial hair permanently.
