Although facial hair for men is currently trending right now, many Americans are still attempting to preserve a clean and professional look by getting rid of facial hair using a variety of different grooming methods. This can also be a common problem for some women who develop facial hair. When women develop facial hair this can be particularly embarrassing for the individual due to the stigma that facial hair only occurs with men. However, this is simply not the case. According to an article
written by Laurie Green for CNN.com, “approximately 20 million American women remove facial hair at least once a week.” The condition in which women develop hair where hair does not normally grow is actually called Hirsutism
, and more common than many think. Women can develop this problem for a series of different reasons such as genetics, higher levels of male hormones in their body, different medications, being overweight, and other health conditions.
Removing facial hair has always been a pain due to the amount of time and lack of efficiency different methods produce. Today we have so many different facial hair removal devices it is hard to keep up. There is shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, threading, sugaring, plucking, and more. However, all of these methods are temporary and usually take an excessive amount of time in order to keep up. It can be frustrating when the hair continues to grow back at a speedy rate, especially due to these methods usually causing the hair to come back even thicker. This has caused many to look into hair removal.
