It’s just a fact of life that girls can get facial hair too. It might be a little stubble on the chin, dark hair over your upper lip, or thick peach hair along your jaw or cheeks. It happens – it’s embarrassing, but it happens. You don’t have to deal with it, though; there are a number of ways you can eliminate the problem – and you don’t have to rely on laser hair removal, either. Here, in fact, are ways to eliminate unwanted facial hair.



Lots of women get facial waxes, especially on their upper lip. This can last longer than plucking. You can also wax at home so it might be worth it for the long-term results, especially if you can keep the issue to yourself.


Women?? Shaving their faces?! Well, yeah, it happens. It’s quick and relatively cheap as well, it doesn’t hurt, and you can do it right in the shower. A lot of women shudder to even think of this, but with guys manscaping and getting their eyebrows (and other areas) waxed and all, there’s really nothing wrong with a girl getting rid of her pesky facial hair with a razor.


Sugaring is a very natural way to go. Basically, it’s a little like waxing, but you can do it with items you probably have in your home. You make a paste out of sugar and water, then apply it to the problem area. After letting the paste dry, you yank it off, hairs and all.

Lemon and honey

Looking for a home remedy for dry skin and excessive facial hair growth? This home-made waxing alternative should work wonders for you. Take a bowl, and mix about 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of organic honey, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, and heat the mixture until it becomes paste-like. You can also thin the mixture by adding water if it tends to become too sticky. Keep the mixture aside for cooling. Take the paste and apply it on the affected areas. Grab a waxing strip and pull the hair out in opposite direction.

Egg white mask

The excessive facial hair growth can be greatly curtailed by egg mask. Not only is it sticky, which makes the mask stick to all your facial hair and help you peel the excess growth off once it is dry, but also nourishes your skin. Eggs are full of protein, which infuses the collagen booster your skin needs after a long day. Just grab a bowl, take the egg white and mix it with a tablespoon of cornstarch and sugar. Keep beating until you get a smooth mixture. Apply the paste on your face, and let it stay for 15 to 20 minutes. When the mask dries and is hard enough, peel it off quickly. Rinse your face with cold water after peeling.


If you have just a few pesky hairs, then plucking will generally do the trick. It hurts, as plucking always does, but it’s quick, easy, and free. This method is ideal for random hairs on or under your chin.
