Until recently I've been removing hair from it (the top lip) with Veet sensitive - which has been fine, but somehow I managed to burn myself with the stuff last time, and now I'm looking for alternative air removal options. Any thoughts? As someone with fine, pale body/facial hair (I'm a redhead) I've never gone in for shaving/waxing or any of that stuff, haven't needed to - so I find myself very ignorant about other ways of getting rid of the 'tache. Suggestions? something long lasting and painless would be ideal!
I get mine threaded along with my eyebrows (£5 total!) every 2-4 weeks (depending how vain I am feeling) but IMO threading is the best as removes all hairs and from the root but less painful to your skin than waxing and redness goes away much quicker
I pluck mine using flat-bladed tweezers, which make it possible to grab even the very short hairs. I've got an illuminated magnifying mirror, which makes the hairs very easy to see. It doesn't take long once you've had a bit of practice; it would take me much longer to go to a professional appointment.
