celtic peach fuzz face - how do I stop growing a beard as I get older :-(
I am fair skinned have short "peach fuzz" hair on my face which doesn't bother me EXCEPT as I am getting older (now 36) I am finding that some of the hairs on my chin are getting coarser and growing in as long whiskers
I pluck and tweeze to get rid of them, but I would rather find a more permanent solution than end up with a whiskery chin (as some of my older female relatives have). However, because the hair is light, I do not think laser depilation would work. What else can I do - I am terrified of growing into the bearded lady!
I am same...I just bought a new epilator, Braun Silk-épil Xpressive 7781 Wet & Dry epilator £66 from Boots. Use it for legs etc, but...it's amazing for pulling hair out from your face, and it leaves the super soft tiny ones, waxing looks a bit too bald i think.
Electrolysis is the way to go, I would say, especially if you are just having odd hairs. Most practitioners will do a free consultation to see how you get on.
Also instead of having to save as with laser treatment, you can break it into smaller chunks. Round here (Notts/Derbys) it costs about £1 per min and an experienced practitioner can remove iirc about 60-100 in 20 mins. You might only need 5-10 mins at a time to treat as they coarsen now, rather than waiting until it's a much bigger problem later.
