How to Control Facial Hair Naturally

Updated on October 21, 2013

This is When Womens Facial Hair is Out of Control



Women have what doctors call estrogen. Most women know that they have estrogen but do not know they have testosterone.

According to Dr. Abraham Kryger with the Monterey Preventive Medical Clinic says when a woman reaches the age 40. The level of testosterone can be compared to a 20-year-old man.

When testosterone levels increase so does the facial hair. However, there is some benefits to increased testosterone such as increase amount of muscle mass and libido

How to Manage Hormones

Most women blame birth control for their facial hair. Doctors will not prescribe birth control if you smoke at the age 35.

If you are women that did not smoke, you could take birth control longer.

In any case, after women stop using birth control. Many women start to notice unwanted hair on the nipples, naval and face.

These hairs are quite embarrassing to say the least.

This is because your hormones are in balanced.

You can remedy this problem by taking natural supplements.

Dr. Abraham Kryger with the Monterey Preventive Medical Clinic recommends these Supplements.

Diindolylmethane is a supplement made from cauliflower and broccoli. If you like, cauliflower and broccoli, it is best to eat because the benefits increase more when you eat fresh cauliflower and broccoli.

If you do not like cauliflower or broccoli, take the supplement. Take 120 mg of DIM

Calcium D Glutamate takes twice a day 200 mg

Drink spearmint herbal tea. Studies show that women who drank two cups of spearmint tea for five days. Their testosterone dropped significantly.

Black cohosh: Use 20 to 40 milligrams twice a day.

Saw Palmetto 160 milligrams. See Photo

Chaste Tree 20 to 40 milligrams. See Photo

It is import for women to keep testosterone levels as close to normal as possible. Why you say? Because high levels of the male hormone, testosterone is known to cause cancer in the ovaries and in the breast.

Women with high male hormone levels should make a change in diet.

You must eat an estrogen rich diet. Eat plenty of soy products, cherries, apples, and grain with alfafa. Eat lots of rice and wheat

Reduce consumption of carbs. (Carbohydrate)

Get yourself in an exercise routine. Avoid exercises that promote muscle. Yoga is recommended best for women.

The natural approach is far better than hormone replacement therapy (HRT) The therapy has many side effects Such as cancer of the breast, night sweats along with heart arrhythmia and sleepless nights

      Thank-you so, so much for this incredible information! This is the first time that I had heard about these methods, and did not know about some of the things you mentioned. I plan to give some of these methods a try!

      I have unwanted facial hair. I have only been taking the supplements for about 2 months. I was growing a beard and mustache and hair on my nipples. Embarrassing I couldn't shave fast enough. The first thing I noticed the hairs on the nipple stopped growing. I also noticed I don't have to wax my facial hairs as often. Now I can't tell you if the hair on my face will disappear because I have only been taking the supplements for 2 months. However I do see less hair.

      I read this article on menopause. While taking the supplements for facial hair. I noticed some of the symptoms of menopause disappearing.

      I stop having,night sweats,anxiety,crying spells and mood swings. I had every symptom but 2 out of 34 so taking those supplements,drinking green tea,eating lots more broccoli and cauliflower will help with menopause as well.

      Thanks for the tips Tamron. I did not know you could take supplements for unwanted facial hair. Or about testosterone levels going up at a later age. Does using these supplements actually get rid of the facial hair or does it just help in getting any more?
