Is it ok to wax your face when you have spots?

Hope this is in the right section - was unsure. Anyway, I am getting a few dark hairs around my chin/upper lip and sideburn area. Am thinking of getting it waxed off, but am unsure if I will get a bad reaction due to a breakout of spots I have around my jaw line/neck area. Any ideas?

Sorry, the spots are also in the area I would need to have waxed. Just clarifying...

I don't think you can get it waxed.
From my old waxing days I think it was a no no, in case it rips your spots off as well and leaves you with big holes in your face. Slight exaggeration, but I think thats the reason.

Could you bleach instead?

Thanks hoolagirl, this is just what I thought. The hairs are not too bad, you can just see them more in a certain light. Have never tryed bleaching, don't really trust myself to be honest!! thanks again

I have an epilator and it has a facial hair attatchment. I've never used it, but the bit that you use on your legs works really well - the thing even has a headlight so you can see what you're doing! Might it be worth investing in one of those? Then it would only pluck out the hair without damaging anything else, iyswim.
