I am 29 with some upper lip hair. It isn't horribly noticeable-I see it more than anyone else of course, but I have been tanning and it seems darker-probably bc the sun isn't actually bleaching the hair since all is indoor right now. Should I just go ahead and bleach it or actually remove the hair????? I know that I run the risk of making it grow back oddly, but not sure. I have removed it before so n ot sure it would really make a difference. What do you all suggest?????
I would go with waxing it off. I think you're better off with doing that and plus, the hair grows back thinner and finer. If you keep up with doing that then it starts taking longer and longer to grow.
Definitely don't shave it...one of my friends did and it grows back THICK daily.
I use Nair, it works great on me.
I recommend waxing though, too, if you haven't done anything to it yet. The only reason I keep using the lotion is because it grows in really fine and sporadically (and only like once a month or every other month!!!) so waxing just doesn't seem worth it. But waxing is really great for removing unwanted hair and you don't have to worry about getting a bad reactiong to a lotion (like Jenteal mentioned...another friend of mine got burned from it).
What's the best stuff in the drug store for wax removal? I tried it once and it mostly ripped at my skin instead of taking the hair off. So I had red blotchy skin with tears in it and facial hair not a good look..lol.
I shave with one of those little finishing touch shavers but it does not get very close and leaves stubble. It is peach fuzz I have but it's quite thick peach fuz.
I used to wax my upper lip area for years but it made me break out every time and now I have old acne marks that take forever to fade, it' horrible. I just started using the Nair moisturizing cream hair remover for the face, it works great and doesn't irritate at all and my skin is looking much better.
That's my experience. Good luck.
I leave it on for 5 minutes, give or take... (because I'm not exactly staring at the clock), but definitely no longer than 10 minutes, which it says (because it'll burn). I have REALLY sensitive skin, and it'll be red directly after.
If you wax, get it waxed at a salon. I wouldn't trust myself with hot wax, haha, it takes only a few minutes, and is under $10.
I used Nair spec. for the lip and it worked GREAT. No rash, no pimples nada. It feels funny, but it always does.
The Nair and all other creams don't work on my legs either. I guess mine is too coarse as well? I Have a history of breaking out into little bumps all over that itch so badly! One time I thought I was going to die, looked like a million little bugbites and felt just about the same too!
