This answer doesn't only pertain to men, but also women. So I am going to go with the women's answer as I am one who does have to live with this aggravation. Are you a woman with unsightly facial hair? What do you do to get rid of the unwanted hair - Do you bleach, tweeze, wax, or shave? I'm going to give you a break down of each one and you can weigh the options. Firstly, bleaching can be effective to an extent. Meaning, for some darker, more coarse haired individuals this method will not work. It may turn it an orangey color, which would still be noticeable. On the other hand, for the thinner lighter hairs this is perfect for the following reasons: you don't have to worry about it growning back by the end of the day, it's painless, and effective. (Just don't keep the bleach on too long in case of burning. Ouch!) Next, tweezing is another alternative to the bleaching. I'll talk about the pros first. It's efficient and durable. You can't see the hair beneath the skin that is starting to grow out either. (aka five o'clock shadow) Now the Cons: It's time-consuming, painful and the old wives tale "you pluck one...10 more will sprout out." Another removal method is waxing. Waxing is quick, efficient, long-lasting, and my personal favorite becuase it look's au natural. The cons are minimal, such as pain and a hot sensation lasting about an hour afterwards (but this can be treated with the right moisturizer. Lastly, shaving is the most common (in the US) method for shedding those menacing growths! Benefits are that its fast, effortless, and inexpensive. The downfalls are by far the worse of all the above: Razorburn, ingrown hairs, red bumps, and by the end of the day you are faced with an embarrassing five o'clock shadow! Of course there's laser hair removal and electrolysis if you are looking for a more long lasting approach, but bear in mind you will spend more $$$. There is what is called sugar waxing. This uses an natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root and results can last up to six weeks, and temporary results can result to permanent. There are a few different recipes you'll find, but the real receipe conists of only natural ingredients. Another less popular method is called hair threading removal in which cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle. Stay smooth!
