Sponsored: Olay Wants To Help You Address One Of The Biggest Beauty Taboos
October 28, 2011
Today we’re going to discuss something you’d probably be mortified to even mention around anyone other than your mom, or your closest girlfriends. It’s one of the most unwelcome surprises when you look in the mirror – unwanted facial hair. It’s a source of embarrassment for most women of all hair types and ethnicities, so if you’re feeling self conscious about a few dark hairs popping up in your wedding photos, it’s only natural.
Whether your hair is light or dark, there are 3 different types of facial hair. That’s right blondes! The notion that blonde hair is always finer than dark hair is a myth.
Fine hair – Fine hair mostly manifests itself in the form of a little peachfuzz on the upper lip. It’s not usually visible to others, except in natural light.
Medium hair – This is hair that’s thicker and more visible than fine hair, but still soft to the touch. This hair generally shows up on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, jawline, and jawline
Coarse hair – Coarse hair is usually darker and stiff to the touch. These are the gnarliest problem hairs that make unwanted appearances on your upper lip, chin, and jawline.
Many women treat unwanted facial hair by bleaching, threading, waxing, tweezing, or even (yikes) shaving. But many of these treatments can lead to redness and irritation that’s even more noticeable than the occasional stray hair. Fortunately, Olay has developed a two step treatment system that effectively removes fine to medium hair, and leaves your skin feeling baby-smooth and irritation-free.
The Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo comes with a skin calming balm that preps the skin with essential oils to prep the skin before the hair removal cream is applied. There’s finally an affordable at-home hair removal treatment with no risk and no redness!
