Q & A

I am having some issues with facial hair.  Especially at my chin and between my breast.  On Thursday I felt embarrassed as my husband came in the bathroom and saw me with women facial shaving cream on.  I did not like it and felt embarrassed about it.  He assured me it was ok.  I have very sensitive skin and the last time I waxed I have pimples.  Is there anything out there for me to use and not feel so much like a man “shaving“?  This is a new struggle for me and I donot like it, please help me.

    • Unfortunately I have to shave my face every day so I know what you‘re going through.  I’ve heard that lazer treatments are good for hair removal, but I’ve never tried it.

    • Chances are you got pimples after waxing because of how THEY waxed you.....
      I reccommend you try again but ask them NOT to touch the area after waxing.

    • Investigate a salon that specializes in waxing sensitive skin...most places will try to accommodate clients who have problem areas or deal with tender skin.

    • Hi Brimstone

      Hair growth that hasn’t occurred before may be related to the hormonal changes that accompany perimenopause. Estrogen can be converted to testosterone, leading to what is called androgenic (male) side effects including hair growth.  

      A good naturopath will probably be able to advise re some strategies to minimize this with diet, exercise and supplements. And it looks like some of the other women have made some great recommendations for how to minimize the impact that shaving is having on your sensitive skin.

    • I have the same problem, but I think It’s because when I was younger I had a few hairs on my chin and I thought shaving them off would fix that problem and they would never come back. Well I didn’t know It would make It worse, I really didn’t and now I have to shave everyday. I never told my husband about this, but I think he has an Idea what I do, he just doesn’t say anything cause maybe he doesn’t want to make me feel embarrased about It. But I hate having to do this everyday, I feel awful about It and It makes me feel like less of a woman to be shaving my chin. I want to get this taken care of but not sure who to go to or talk too. I am even embarrased to tell my doctor, as you can see I am embarrased to show my face.

    • Dear Anon,

      Shaving when you were younger will not make it any worse. It just makes it more noticable to you. Don’t be embarrassed either. It’s just another one of “those” things that women have to go thru. I f you want it to stay a secret you can use the cream as Jenz suggested but if it’s very course you may want to find a place that does threading. That should leave no tell tale marks and lasts a little bit.

      And we will keep your secret safe!!!

    • One of my sons does the threading for his eyebrows too. [We all have lil hair secrets] estatic
      I’m still a ‘tweezer’ myself but am super choosy about the tools. lol ‘Mehaz’ tweezers work really well.
      The cream bleach for the good ol upper lip is great but I have noticed I cannot leave it on any longer than 4 to 5 mins. Put it on and wipe it right off. It also comes with a soothing balm for after use.
      No worries hun. We all get it.
