Tips, Tricks & Warnings

  • Make sure that the area you wish to wax/remove hair from is completely dry. Apply baby powder on the area to absorb all the moisture from the skin. The drier the area is, the easier it is to wax and remove the unwanted hair.
  • Never shave the skin without any cream or accompanying shaving mix. The scraping of the shave causes the skin to lose its moisture. Shaving without cream or another moisturizing partner may cause the re-growth of hair to become more excessive.
  • Use petroleum jelly to act as a salve for your skin after tweezing the hair out.
  • If there is still an excessive growth of facial hair, consult your doctor.

Questions and Answers

How to remove a femstashe?

While some aren't bothered with their femstache (female mustache), it seems to be a big deal for others. If having it bothers you and lowers your self-esteem, here are some ways to get rid of them:

  • Bleaching. There are some facial hair bleaching products that work to lighten the mustache. Just be advised, though, that such products only work on light-colored hair, not black hair. Be very careful when choosing from these over-the-counter products. Make sure to purchase one that is FDA approved.
  • Hair waxing. Wax is another OTC product that you may want to opt for. Be sure to follow all the instructions to achieve the effect that you desire.
  • Depilatory creams. This is a no-pain femstashe removal. These creams make hair shed off, so there is no need to worry about the pain of hair-pulling.
  • Electrolysis or laser hair removal. When all the do-it-yourself methods seem to bring no results, you may want to consider laser hair removal. If you do this, make sure that you go to a certified practitioner for safe removal.

You can remove your femstashe by simply using a razor that men use in order to remove facial hair. This can be used by women as well to remove hairs but if you are looking for a more safe way to remove your hairs without using razor blades you can use the product Nair which is located in your local store.

How to reduce face hair naturally? Please give me tips?

You can try the good old way if plucking. Yes, it will hurt but applying ice before plucking hair out is a good way to numb it. You can also try shaving with a razor. It is the most easiest method, however, it could make your face itch when the hairs grow back. The best option that you have is waxing it off. Yes, it is painful but it will take a little time for it to grow back. It also won't be as itchy as shaving. You can buy waxing kits, shaving razor and tweezers at a local store near you.
