Ladies soon find that there are a few surprise changes with their bodies once they hit the 40 year mark and even more after 50. You may notice that you gain a pound or two each year and it is not that easy to take it back off. Fine lines and wrinkles may start to appear and as testosterone is not balanced with estrogen (which starts to decline), you may also notice the appearance of a few course chin hairs. Don’t freak out! It’s normal and you are NOT the only one with the problem. But how do you get rid of them? There are several methods to take the chin hairs down, some more painful than others. See which method suits your needs the best.
Just about all women have a faithful pair of tweezers that they use to pluck their eyebrows are stray hairs around the eyebrows. This is a simple and quick method that just gives you a quick “ow” and also quick and easy to do. It is also cost-effective since you probably already have a pair of tweezers or two.
If you only have one or two stray chin hairs growing in you can get away with clipping it close to the skin with a pair of cuticle scissors. This is also a quick and pain-free way to tackle unwanted chin hairs.
Shaving is also an option, but also comes with a bit of a risk of the chin hairs growing back in courser than they were to begin with. This method also requires routine maintenance or you may end up with stubble on your chin. This is not a very flattering look, so you may want to try other methods before relying on shaving your chin with a razor. Besides, you also risk cutting your chin with a razor.
Waxing is another option you can try, but be sure to apply the wax at room temperature. You don’t have to have overly hot wax to remove a hair. Waxing involves a risk of burning your skin and repeated use over years of time may cause your skin to darken in that area.
Depilatory creams are a special cream made just for removing facial hair. It is safe to use as long as you follow directions. This method may take a few minutes for leaving the cream on long enough for it to do the job, but a pain-free way to rid your chin of unwanted hair.
Electrolysis and Laser Removal
Electrolysis is yet another option for those with lots of chin hair. Electrolysis is a permanent way to remove the hair on your chin and should be performed by a licensed dermatologist or skin care professional.
Electrolysis uses an electrical current to destroy the hair follicle, therefore, leading the way for no more hair to grow in that area.
Laser removal of unwanted hair is performed with a laser beam that also destroys the hair follicle. Both of these two methods are the most expensive but are permanent solutions to no more chin hair!
