As women, we know that hair can grow in many different places on our body. It’s part of life! But, hair on our face can be annoying at best and embarrassing at worst. Getting rid of unwanted hair can make you feel sexy and flirty and boost your confidence level. You might be asking yourself, can women shave their face? Whether you want to get rid of hairs on your upper lip or shape the perfect eyebrows, there are a lot of facial hair-removal methods and just as many products from which to choose. Let’s talk about them!
Tweezing Those Hairs
The simplest way to remove hair from your face is to use tweezers. However, this can be a tedious process. It can also be painful for those with supersensitive skin. When tweezing, try to pull out hairs from the root. That way your smooth skin will stay that way longer.
Shaving Your Face
Men shave their face with a razor, and you can, too! You can even use the same razor that you use for shaving your arms and legs. Before you start, make sure to clean the razor well and use fresh, sharp blades to avoid irritation and ensure a good shave. The skin on your face can be more sensitive than other areas, so hydration is key. It’s important to use a shave gel or cream to help moisturize your skin while shaving. Although you can use any type of razor, we believe the best razor for women is one designed for women. The Venus® Swirl has features specially designed with women in mind. It includes a sleek handle for enhanced grip and FLEXIBALLTM technology to help you shave those harder-to-reach places. It contours over curves for flawless skin and long-lasting smoothness.
Waxing Your Lady ‘Stache
Waxing is always an option when removing facial hair. You can go to a professional salon or do it at home on your own. The waxing process involves applying hot wax to the skin, then placing strips of cloth on top of the wax. Unwanted hairs are removed by pulling off the strips of cloth. When waxing facial hair, make sure to only apply wax to the desired areas. Be especially careful when shaping your eyebrows—you wouldn’t want to accidently end up eyebrow-less! Waxing is easy to do, but it can also be messy and painful. When waxing at home, read all instructions included in your waxing kit – and maybe ask a close friend to help you out.
Epilating Your Facial Hairs
Another way to remove facial hair is by epilating. An epilator is a handheld device that use tiny tweezers to mechanically pluck hairs from the body. Our favorite is Braun Face. Since it removes hair from the root, it tends to last longer than shaving or waxing. With top precision, it’s a great way to groom smaller areas like your eyebrows. You can use an epilator to remove facial hair, but be careful. Since facial skin is often more sensitive, make sure to pull skin tight and take it slow.
Using Permanent Hair Removal
Want a more permanent solution? Facial hair can be removed with laser hair removal or IPL (intense pulsed light). Results are either permanent or last very a long time – much longer than any other method. However, professional services can be expensive. For permanent hair removal at home, we recommend the Venus Silk-expert IPL. It’s a groundbreaking system that reduces hair in as little as four treatments. Plus, you don’t have to mess with appointments at a salon.
Now you know that you can pluck, shave, wax, epilate or laser your facial hair away. Whichever method you choose, make sure it’s the one that makes you feel the like the best version of yourself. After all, that’s what really matters!
