Ladies, help me. I'm mid 40s and the bastard chins hairs keep on coming. I keep plucking them out, but am I going to have a beard by the time I'm 50? Nasty course black thick hairs. Do I need to go and see my GP? ARGH!?!?!

Watching with interest as I sadly have the same problem (similar age).


Strugglingmum73 · 18/11/2019 22:54

I feel your pain


Majorcollywobble · 18/11/2019 22:55

They get better over time . They turn silver .


GothMummy · 18/11/2019 22:55

I am plucking too :(


Merryoldgoat · 18/11/2019 22:56

I pluck the fuckers out daily


Katrinawaves · 18/11/2019 22:56

I have blonde ones so I either have them threaded at the same time as I do my eyebrows or wax them myself at home.

If you have pale skin and dark hairs though I think things like Lumea are supposed to be good as a more permanent solution.

I’m part of the club. I pluck multiple hairs daily. I’m planning on getting the lumia thingymebob as a Christmas present to myself.

Yup one great advantage of going grey is that your moustache becomes a bit less glaringly apparent. HTH.


Gillian1980 · 18/11/2019 22:56

I feel your pain.

Mine appeared during my first pregnancy when I was 35 which I assumed was triggered by hormonal changes.

I hate them. They’re black and coarse.


SummerInSun · 18/11/2019 22:57

Same problem. Tried a lot of electrolysis about ten years ago. Helped a bit with the worst ones, but I probably still tweezer our about 20 chin hairs a night. I can now do it while reading my kindle in bed at night.


BIWI · 18/11/2019 22:57

If they're black hairs then you can have them treated with laser/IPL. Mine are (mostly) white though, so can't do anything other than pluck.


HairyFloppins · 18/11/2019 22:57

I've had them for years and I'm in my thirties!

I quite enjoy plucking them with my tweezermans.


Doryhunky · 18/11/2019 22:58

They also seem to sprout overnight and grow
Very fast


Dora26 · 18/11/2019 22:58

Boots wax strips for me - mine are red-blonde so Lumea wouldnt work. The strips are simple to use


Sewrainbow · 18/11/2019 22:59

Same here sadly, just been dealing with mine, I'll soon have a moustache, beard and chest hair! Sad

They're getting worse, I think it must be as a result of hysterectomy and HRT


Galaxygirl93 · 18/11/2019 23:00

At least you are mid 40s! I am 25 and have them! Tweezers/waxing does the job


LoisWilkersonsLastNerve · 18/11/2019 23:01

I wax mine op. Fuckers. Flowers


FenellaVelour · 18/11/2019 23:03

Every day I’m at mine. I’ve currently got a big scab on my chin from getting too enthusiastic with the tweezers and pinching my skin. It’s so attractive.


Sewbean · 18/11/2019 23:05

I found one at work today, couldn't stop fiddling with it all day but couldn't grasp it tightly enough with my fingers to pull it out. I'm going to need to keep tweezers in my handbag now for ever.


Iwantacookie · 18/11/2019 23:07

Mid 30s here and often felt like running away to join the circus due to my chin pubes.
Why do they sprout 6 foot over the space of an hour? Honestly I never had an abnormally long head hair so why on my chin? Confused


MarianaMoatedGrange · 18/11/2019 23:07

I quite enjoy plucking mine. Black ones, white ones that take a lot of tugging. The worst are the stealth ones that appear like magic - 2 feet long - that you only notice when you've out of the house for hours. Bastards.


Phycadelicsilhouette · 18/11/2019 23:07

I have the same issue... I’m 31! 😂
Also have to keep on top of my moustache and I’m pretty certain my nipples are getting hairier too 😫


whogoncheckmeBoo · 18/11/2019 23:07

I have been having laser hair removal. Not tired face yet but very impressed so far. I am having ‘cool laser’ so it doesn’t even hurt. It works especially well on areas with fairer skin and darker hair


whogoncheckmeBoo · 18/11/2019 23:09

*tried Blush


Elderflower14 · 18/11/2019 23:10

I've just pulled one out of my chin as I was typing. 🤔 🤔 🤔 🤔
