All over the world, you'd be surprised to learn how many women naturally have hair on their upper lip. Consequently, women go to great lengths to remove this hair to prevent social stigma and keep their beauty intact.
In the United States alone, more than 10% of women remove upper lip hair daily. Typically, even if you've been lucky enough to have a hairless upper lip throughout your life, after menopause which, usually, occurs between the ages of 45-55, you may begin to experience upper lip hair growth due to hormone imbalances.
This can result in a loss of confidence and general unhappiness.
As you age and your appearance changes, it can be difficult to come to terms with how you look, however, regularly removing your upper lip hair is one way you can retain your former self and feel confident and beautiful with minimal effort.
In this article, we explore the different ways to remove unwanted upper lip hair, including how FRÉNÉSIES hair growth prevention products can help remove upper lip hair permanently and get you looking and feeling your best.
The Best Way to Remove Unwanted Hair on Upper Lip
Removing upper lip hair can be painful. Some of the most common methods include:
Possibly the most painful method of removing upper lip hair, waxing is also one of the quickest. Typically, waxing your upper lip will keep it free of hair for around one month, which makes it a relatively cost-efficient method.
We always recommend visiting a professional beauty salon to wax your upper lip as, by doing it yourself, there is a risk of burning or scabbing. A fully-qualified beauty specialist will be able to help and ensure that the result is completely seamless, so your little lip hair secret stays that way.
If you're not able to regularly visit a beauty salon due to cost, or if your upper lip hair problem is very minimal, you may want to try tweezing your upper lip hair at home. Tweezing upper lip hair can be painful and time-consuming; however, if you're patient and have access to good lighting and a mirror and have a reasonable pain threshold, it's not too difficult.
When tweezing, make sure to grip the hairs and pull them to one side of your face in a quick, sharp motion. This will help to remove the hair at the root. Once you have finished, use a soothing natural moisturiser, such as aloe vera, to clear redness and reduce skin tenderness.
Many women go to the salon these days to have their eyebrows threaded, but you can also have your upper lip threaded at the same time. The level of pain during threading is the same as when having your eyebrows done – threading is, without a doubt, uncomfortable; however, it's not unbearable.
If you're not familiar with the process, threading is when a cotton thread is used to pull hairs out quickly and cleanly from the root. Threading is time and cost efficient; however, it will leave you with some redness on your upper lip for an hour or two, so it is advised to try and find somewhere close to home if you are concerned about being in public.
If available, ask your beauty specialist to apply a soothing gel after your treatment. In addition, make sure you regularly exfoliate to prevent ingrown hairs from happening which can be painful.
Whichever method you choose, make sure you remove upper lip hair from the root to slow regrowth, and remember that all three of these methods are temporary.
