If you are alarmed by the sudden spurting of facial hair in your mid-forties, you are not alone. Premenopausal women across races, tend to develop facial hair as the levels of the hormone that regulates it, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) start to increase in their body. When estrogen levels of the reproductive years begin to drop, it causes vellus hair to convert into terminal hair. Therefore, the thin barely visible hair on your face starts to get hardened into a visible mustache or beard. This can be very distressing for a woman who may no longer feel attractive or confident. They take to secretly and painfully pluck away each hair in their bathroom so no one will know. However, wax strips might be a much better alternative. Here's how.
3 Reasons to Wax, Not Pluck
Faster: When it comes to epilation, everyone agrees – there's no gain without pain. When you choose to tweeze one hair at a time, not only do you spend much more time on removing facial hair, you also prolong the pain. A wax strip on the other hand will take care of it all in a jiffy.
Works on Finer Hair as Well: Quality products like Veet Face Wax Strips will work on shorter and finer hair as well, which you might not be able to grasp with a tweezer. Moreover, since these strips are formulated with Shea Butter, you need not worry about irritation or break outs. Tweezing may result in unsightly bumps and ingrown hair but wax strips will not.
Regrowth: One of the best things about Veet® Face Wax Strips With Easy Grip™ - Sensitive Skin is that you can have up to four weeks of smoothness with one easy move. On the other hand, plucking hair out can cause thicker and faster regrowth, found a study conducted in Dundee University. In contrast, with regular use of Veet Face Wax Strips, you will have fewer, finer and softer hair growing back.
There is no need to be embarrassed of facial hair as many women are afflicted by it at some time or the other. In fact, there is cause to cheer as there is a foolproof way to tackle the problem that will save you from embarrassment, and others will be none the wiser. Along with this taking care of your diet during menopause could also bring relief from its symptoms.
