Upper lip/chin hair. HELP!
I'm a 19 year old girl and have been treating upper lip hair since I was 14. I hate this problem and it makes me feel so incredibly self conscious. When I first started, I only had upper lip hair- and I waxed once every 2-3 weeks. However, when I was 17 I noticed that I had started developing hair on my chin as well.. I was mortified. I just bleached this area first, but then started waxing my chin as well. A day doesn't go by when I don't obsess over this problem, and it is so embarrassing for me. No one has ever mentioned or pointed it out since I first started waxing (I started because a boy in middle school had pointed it out) but I still feel like the hair is so obvious as it grows back in. I had thought that waxing would gradually reduce the amount of hair on my face, but I now have to wax more than ever (once a week) and I pluck the hairs that grow in between.. it seems that every morning more hairs are growing back in. I don't know if I'm just seeing the problem as more than it is simply because I'm so preoccupied with worrying about it, or whether it actually is as bad as I think. As I said, no one has ever said anything about it again, and many people tell me I am very pretty- but still, especially when I'm in the light, I find it so hard to keep eye contact with people and keep my hands off my face because I am so self conscious and scared that they see hairs on my face. What's worse is that I have very sensitive skin and, directly after waxing, it appears very irritated for about a day. I have considered shaving it, but don't want it to grow back in thicker or to develop stubble. I don't know what to do anymore.. I feel so self conscious, and the routine is so tiring and seems pointless because I am still always so self conscious about my face.
I have researched electrolysis but found many stories that say it is long, time consuming process and sometimes does not even produce desired results. I don't know what to do anymore, I just want to feel confident and this is one of the main things in my way. This is a very embarrassing problem for me, I guess I just wanted to know- has anyone else dealt with anything like this? Were there any treatments that worked for you? ( I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING) and.. would there be any reason why it seems my hair growth has gotten faster? any way to stop this? please.. any advice anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.. this is a problem that I find myself thinking about ALL the time.
