By Edited Mar 1, 2016 0 2

Both men and women have hair on their faces. The only difference is that the hair that grows on a woman's face is a softer and finer. This makes it hard to notice. The problem begins when the hair becomes thicker and darker. This is very embarrassing for women and it can be a big turn-off for men.

Women are defined by their femininity and dark facial hair isn't very feminine. Women are not looking to enhance their masculine side, so they very much want to get rid of the facial hair. According to studies made, facial hair on women can appear for many different reasons. But the most common associated reason is related to chemical reactions in the body. If you have dark hair growing on your face, you do not have to live with it. You can do something to it with the facial epilator.

There are many effective facial hair removal products. One of them is the facial epilator. Although its effects are temporary and only last for a month or so, it is still a good solution for unwanted facial hair. The Epilady hair removal device or facial epilator has a rotating head, which is similar to the use of tweezers. By using this device, the face will be hair free and when the hair does grow back, it will be thinner, lighter and more sparse, especially with repeated use. It also removes the facial hair by the root, which is more effective than shaving or waxing.

These kind of facial epilator devices offer more comfort and help the skin to be relaxed during the process and make the job easier.

Aside from using a facial epilator, there are also other methods, which are effective in removing unwanted facial hair. A well-known procedure is threading, but it is time consuming. This method is very effective, but you will need lots of time and practice to get it right. Here is how it works. A length of cotton threads are intertwined and skillfully stroked across the face. With this particular motion, the facial hair gets caught in the threads and is pulled out by the roots.

That being said, threading hair removal is a great way to remove facial hair.

Creams are also available, but since they do not pull the hair out by they root, they are about as effective as shaving. Some creams also have side effects, such as irritation, rashes and redness of the skin.

Qualified and certified specialists are the only persons allowed to perform these methods.

The final method of hair removal is call body sugaring. A paste made of sugar, lemon juice and water is used to remove the unwanted facial hair. This taffy-like paste is spread across the skin and ripped off with a skilled stroke. Not only does it remove the hair by the roots, but it also removes the layer of dead skin off your face.
