Female Body Hair

As I grow older I am spouting stray hairs. I have a few dark, wiry hairs grown around my nipples (which I pluck/shave). As time goes by there seems to be more of them. Most recently I noticed one growing out of the nipple. Is there any way to get rid of them?

Re: Female Body Hair

I get those, too. My chin, as well. I hate it, but they're there, so, oh well. I pluck.

I have to pluck my chin daily. I only pluck around my nipples when I'm going for a mammogram or a doctor's visit. They've seen hair before, but I'm self-conscious.

I've never heard that the hair is harmful, just an annoyance. Around the nipple is a sensitive area, so be careful about the methods of removal you choose.

Best wishes ,
