Skin Care Tips for Removing Facial Hair | Women

No more discomfort, embarrassment, or tedious removal methods! So many of us struggle with unwanted facial hair; just look at all the products geared towards removing or slowing the growth of such hairs! I'm still young and learning, but here are a few tips and tricks I've learned from my Momma, Nana, and hours of research that help ease removal.

>>>Disclaimer:  I'm not a Dermatologist or skin specialist. Just sharing tips from my experience, experiences of women in my family, and based on my own research.<<<

The Basics:  Preparation for All Skin Types

[1] Always wash your face BEFORE attempting to remove any hairs from your face. (Regardless of the method you plan to use.)

[2] For all skin types, choose your favorite exfoliation method and use that product prior to removing facial hair. (This will remove excess dead skin cells and possibly help lift the hairs of curlier hair types from beneath the skin, i.e. potential ingrown hairs.)

[3] If you have dry skin, DO NOT use facial scrubs or masks that may excessively dry out your skin. (Plucking, waxing, epilating, dilapidation, etc on dry skin can be damaging to each hair follicle.)

[4] If you have oily skin, DO use a cleanser, scrub, or mask that removes excess oil and dead skin build up. (Curly hair types may grown into skin between hair removal; a scrub or mask may gently remove those layers of skin.)

[5] If you have combination skin, DO use a product that caters to the needs of your skin:  such as the oily prone T-Zone and dry areas on the cheeks, chin, or around the mouth.

[6] Prep your tools and skin with a swipe of rubbing alcohol using a cotton ball or pad. (This will kill any bacteria left on your skin's surface and on your tools.)
