hair on your fingers and toes, and tiny little hairs on your face is normal. In fact, not having hair on your fingers or toes is a recessive trait. Each pore is actually a hair follicle, although not each one grows a hair.

I've know people with dark hair that use bleaching creme around their jawlines and such, which is an option. My hair is pretty light so it's not noticeable, and as for the stray hairs between the eyes, i just pluck 'em out.

thanks for your reply.
I donīt think itīs normal , these hairs are tiny hairs that look like blackheads. Most facial hair is unnoticeable. These hairs are very noticeable because they are black dots. They almost canīt be plucked they are way too short. My sister does not have them.
bleaching is not an option for me.

Are you using a magnifying mirror or something? These might be things that the average person talking to you wouldn't notice. I have realized that a lot of stuff we agonize over is really not that noticeable. Think how rude it would seem if someone stopped and stared at your pores. I have little hairs all over my face, even nose...I think everyone does. My fingers and toes are hairy too. My fingers don't bug me, but I shave my toes!!!
