Facial Hair Removal

Find out how to remove facial hair with our tips.

Our face is where everyone looks first when they see us. And most of us want the world to see us without any facial hair. No surprise there are many facial hair removal methods: you can epilate, tweeze, wax, sugar, thread, burn, shave or bleach; use creams, lasers, IPL, electrolysis or make-up. Surface facial hair removal methods like shaving are quick and easy, but stubble grows back fast. Root methods of removing facial hair like wax and epilation are long-lasting, but waxing yourself is messy and hard to do at home, and epilators are easy to use but often bulky - not very convenient for those quick touch-ups. So what now?

  1. 1. Always clean your face before removing hair to avoid clogging your pores

  2. 2. Choose the right facial hair removal method:

    • Shaving

    • It removes hairs for smooth skin, but it only lasts 1-2 days. That means you need to be ready for constant maintenance, especially as that stubble grows back.

      Tip:shave in the direction the hair grows to avoid irritation.

    • Waxing

    • It is long-lasting (up to 4 weeks!) but your hair has to be at least 0.5mm long for wax to grab it. So unfortunately you need to let your hair grow for a few weeks before your next wax.

      Tip: if it’s the first time make sure you test the wax before you apply it on a large section of the face.

    • Epilation

    • It removes hair from the root and is also long-lasting (same as wax, up to 4 weeks) but the good news is that you don’t have to wait for hair to grow back as long! You can epilate when hairs are shorter – 0.02mm! Plus it’s faster than tweezers.

      Tip: hold the skin tight when epilating for a more comfortable experience.

    • Trimming

    • Trimming removes hair from above the surface by cutting the hair. So it is best for small touch-ups and great for eyebrow shaping to get a perfect arch.

      Tip: not everyone is born with luxuious thick eyebrows! not everyone is born with luxurious thick eyebrows! Get the perfect shape and then fill in with make-up to perfect your look.
