How to remove facial hair

Facial hair is a prominent issue, literally.

Our face is where everyone looks first when they see us. And most of us want the world to see us without any facial hair. No surprise there are many methods to remove it: you can epilate, tweeze, wax, sugar, thread, burn, shave or bleach; use creams, lasers, IPL, electrolysis or make-up. Surface removal methods like shaving are quick and easy, but stubble grows back fast. Root removal methods like wax and epilation are long-lasting, but waxing yourself is messy and hard to do at home, and epilators are easy to use but often bulky - not very convenient for those quick touch-ups. So what now?

1. Always clean your face before removing hair to avoid clogging your pores
2.Tips for choosing the right method.

ShavingIt removes hairs for smooth skin, but it only lasts 1-2 days.That means you need to be ready for constant maintenance, especially as that stubble grows back.

Tip:shave in the direction the hair grows to avoid irritation.

WaxingIt is long-lasting (up to 4 weeks!) but your hair has to be at least 0.5mm long for wax to grab it. So unfortunately you need to let your hair grow for a few weeks before your next wax.

Tip: if it’s the first time make sure you test the wax before you apply it on a large section of the face.

EpilationIt removes hair from the root and is also long-lasting (same as wax, up to 4 weeks) but the good news is that you don’t have to wait for hair to grow back as long! You can epilate when hairs are shorter – 0.02mm! Plus it’s faster than tweezers.

Tip: hold the skin tight when epilating for a more comfortable experience.

TrimmingTrimming removes hair from above the surface by cutting the hair. So it is best for small touch-ups and great for eyebrow shaping (link to eyebrow trimmer page) to get a perfect arch.

Tip: not everyone is born with luxuious thick eyebrows! Get the perfect shape and then fill in with make-up to perfect your look.
