7 Home Tips on Facial Hair Removal for Women

Women in all parts of the world face the same aesthetic issue: the battle against facial hair. This is a completely normal phenomenon for women, no matter if they have black or blonde hair, but we can all agree that it’s a problem we want to find a natural solution for.

Distinguishing Between Types of Human Hair

There are actually multiple types of hair that can develop on a person's face and, for the purposes of hair removal, it helps to know the difference.

Although you likely already know exactly what hairs you want to remove, the existence and characteristics of other less embarrassing hair types on your skin can clue you in on alternative ways of dealing with unwanted strands.

On your face, there are both terminal hairs and vellus hairs. Surprisingly, everyone has a lot more vellus hairs on their face (and bodies) than terminal hairs, but the latter get all of the attention. Terminal hairs are thick and obvious whereas vellus hairs are small, fuzzy and relatively light in color.

With the above in mind, options such as changing the color of unwanted vellus hairs and shortening them make a bit more sense than outright removal. Regardless, the choice is yours on what to do with your own hairs.

While permanent facial hair removal for women through cosmetic procedures can become very expensive and even potentially dangerous, we want to offer some alternatives that you can prepare at home.

Here are 7 home tips on facial hair removal for women that we know you are going to love!
