One of the most common ways to remove excess facial hair is through waxing. You can either go to a professional waxing salon so they can do this for you or you can simply buy do-it-yourself waxing kits from a pharmacy that you can try out in private. The advantage with going to a pro is that they may be able to reach areas of your face that you don’t have a clear view of, even with a mirror. For example, if you are a guy who wants to remove sideburns then you have a problem because you can only tilt your face enough to see some areas but not the whole sideburn area. Letting a pro handle the waxing can also be good because waxing does entail some pain on your part – so you might hesitate to do all the waxing once you feel how painful it is.
Relying on DIY waxing kits at home also depends on your threshold of pain. It is cheaper of course than going to a waxing salon but you need to do it fast (such as when you pull away the waxing film from the hairy area) so that you don’t feel the pain so much as hairs get pulled from their roots. It can also be awkward since you might not know how much waxing to do to get the results you want. In addition, using some questionable DIY waxing sets might trigger an allergic reaction on your skin – which could be more painful and harmful than the hairy areas ever were.
Since you want to be as safe as possible when removing surplus facial hair, you may want to get help from a dermatologist first. Your dermatologist can not only advice you on good safe products for waxing but she can also check when you develop an allergic reaction to see how bad the damage is. Your other safe option when removing surplus hair is to use a sharp implement like an old fashioned razor blade to start scraping away the hair from the base. As long as you don’t slip and cut yourself, this should be a painless procedure that is approximately as effective as a do-it-yourself wax job could ever be.
Remember though that hair does grow back so you need to keep up the effort as part of your regular grooming routine for a lifetime to see consistent results. For more information about hair removal or beauty tips, visit us online at Sheniko Beauty Store. We would love to hear from you!
