Having a moustache is definitely not considered sexy for a woman. It can be a source of embarrassment and ridicule for a woman. It is thus necessary to get rid of it, no matter how faint it is.
In this article, we are going to explore some of the recommended methods as well as some of the methods to be avoided to get rid of upper lip hair.
The following methods are a definite no-no for upper lip hair removal:
7 Effective Tips for Lip Hair Removal
Shaving is usually not recommended for upper lip hair removal as your upper lip area is very sensitive compared to the rest of your body. Moreover, shaving is a temporary method and you will have to shave this area regularly, which might leave you with stubble.
Bleaching is also not considered a viable option. Against the light, it will look like you have a golden moustache.
Hair Removing Creams
Using a hair removing cream is also a risky idea because these creams contain strong chemicals, which might darken the skin and cause allergic rashes. These creams remove hair only from the surface, so the hair grows back after three or four days.
The following are the most recommended methods for upper lip hair removal:
The cheapest and most popular way of getting rid of unwanted upper lip hair is threading. The advantage is that it pulls out the hair from the root and hence, gives you a long-lasting result for about two weeks or so.
Stretch out the skin tightly to avoid cuts while threading. Use some astringent after threading to take care of the small scratches. You can also use some calamine lotion. Apply ice to get rid of the redness after threading.
Another least expensive method of upper lip hair removal is plucking the hair with tweezers. Follow the same method while plucking the hair with tweezers as you do while threading. Stretch out your skin while plucking, use an astringent and apply ice after plucking. But plucking hair from this sensitive area might be painful. Hence, it is a practical method only if the hair growth on this area is very thin.
Waxing might be the best method of getting rid of unwanted upper lip hair. It is a quick and instant process. The hair comes off more neatly. The greatest advantage- the results of waxing may last for more than three weeks. An added advantage is that all the hair is pulled off at one stroke, so the pain you have to bear is relatively less.
Permanent Hair Removal
Laser therapy is the best method of hair removal from any part of the body. It might sound like an expensive idea. But think about it in the long term, it will take care of the unwanted hair all at once and thus, will save you the recurring costs of threading and waxing.
Just imagine the amount of money you will end up spending in your lifetime trying to get rid of unwanted hair from your body!!!! Would you mind spending this money once and get better results plus save yourself time?
These are some of the safest methods of lip hair removal. Please analyze your skin type and decide which method best suits your skin. Also analyze the possible side effects and the after results before proceeding with any of these methods.
Don’t hesitate to take expert advice. It is highly recommended to get it done from a beautician rather than doing it yourself at home. After all, your skin is something you cannot compromise on and is not worth any risk.
