Choosing the right hair removal method could be challenging sometimes, and while you might be tempted to shave your upper lip hair, it might not be such a good idea.
Hypertrichosis, a thickening of the hair, typically happens on the face and not in other parts of your body. This is because hormones respond differently to stimulus in your face, and shaving can exacerbate it as it does not remove hair at the follicle.
When we shave the tips of the hairs become blunter because of the angle at which they are cut. It can lead to a coarse feeling as the hairs regrow, and you’ll be left with stubble.
Stubbly might not be annoying on your legs, but they could be more obvious on your upper leave, and you’ll be shaving very often.
If you don’t want that to happen, laser hair removal is very effective, but a little bit expensive. Waxing and using a depilatory cream target the hair follicle and will be softer for your upper lip hair. Be careful not to hurt yourself with wax and if you choose creams, make sure to test it in a patch before applying it.
