For many women, having to deal with facial hair can be an absolute pain.
Sure, a stray hair or two is just fine, but when it’s a substantial volume of course hair that runs down at the side of your face – now, that could be a bit of a problem.
Of course, let it be known that facial hair is natural.
If you’re one to be at peace with all your facial and body hair, that’s great!
If you’re one to strive for the perfectly smooth and hair-free complexion, however, these unwanted hairs could be understandably annoying. On top of being a hindrance to effective skincare and makeup application, your sideburns may also be one of the reasons why you don’t put your hair up.
Well, it’s time to bid those coarse hairs goodbye! Here are a few ways you can rid those pesky sideburns.
1. Stop and put down those razors
Whilst face shaving has been a trend the past few years, it’s worth noting that these facial hairs are much finer than the ones your sideburns have.
Unless you’re one who is diligent enough to shave it on a regular basis, shaving may not be the one for you.
Since it doesn’t remove the hair follicles from the root, you’d be stuck with a constant 5 o’clock shadow. Moreover, you’re more than likely have to deal with regular stubble, which is even more troublesome than those thick sideburns you started out with.
So put down those razors for the time being and opt for the other methods!
2. Disguise your sideburns
If you don’t wish to deal with physically removing hair, you can simply hide them!
Bleaching your sideburns will simply lighten your hair follicles, making it fade against your skin and are thus, less noticeable.
Before you do bleach, however, make sure that the bleach you use is one that is specifically made for the face. Hair bleaches can be really harsh on the skin and you may end up with burnt and irritated skin for a few weeks.
3. Threading for a quick fix
If you wish for an approach that gives you good results, threading is definitely it.
Unlike shaving wherein you’ll remove just the parts that lie above the epidermis, threading removes the hair follicles from the root.
This process uses a thin strand of cotton thread (hence, the name) to effectively pull out any unwanted facial hair in just a short amount of time. Not only do the results last for 2-6 weeks, but your hair will also grow back finer each time!
4. Wax it all off
Waxing is one of the most accessible and straightforward hair removal technique there is – so what’s stopping you from waxing your sideburns off?
Similar to threading, waxing also removes unwanted hair by pulling it out from the root. The results will last longer than threading’s, typically from 4-10 weeks, depending on your own hair growth rate and the thickness of your hair.
Just a tip: if you have oily skin, you may want to wash your face with an acne wash a day after your wax session as it’ll help to avoid unnecessary breakouts.
5. Go for a laser hair removal
If you don’t wish for the hassle of scheduling treatments for a few weeks at a time, you can try your hand at laser hair removal!
SHR and IPL hair removal treatments work by using laser to zap the hair follicles with heat, effectively damaging its structure and inhibit its ability to grow back for 3-4 months. Whilst this may sound painful, rest assured it’s not!
