I don't know about you but as I become more seasoned I am finding little sprouts of hair and even moles in places I never had them. I was surprised to see a long hair sticking out of my chin. Of course I plucked it with a tweezer. But it keeps coming back so once a week I do a once over for any new facial hair so I can extract it as fast as it grows. I also felt a small protruding object on my neck and to my surprise it was a mole. I know our body goes through changes but boy I am really not liking this part. I remember when my mom started sporting a little facial hair I used to tease her and say "come here let me take that off cause it makes you look like alittle catfish." I know much of it is hereditary I hope I'm not gonna have to do this for the rest of my life so I don't look like catfish junior. Do you have the same problem? What do you do about it? I don't have enough to wax which is good because I don't like pain. Any suggestions? Or can you give me a hint I hope that's the only growth I have to worry about. Or do you know of more?

well, u can always tweeze ur facial hair if its not too much. waxing helps n so does threading. but if ur really sick of it, try laser hair removal. its quite efficient n can be done in minimum 2 sittings.

I haven't had the hair thing happen yet, but have seen my mother go through (I may throw a slight tantrum if that's going to be a hereditary thing), but have also noticed skin things popping up. For instance, freckles...Never had a freckle and suddly they're just popping up from nowhere--my cheecks, arms, bah. I would, however, get any moles checked out by a dermatologist--if anything, it can at least be removed if you want lol. If the hair becomes a problem and you get sick of pluckin' (don't blame you, as if there's not enough to have a go at normally), you can always go in for electrylosis or laser hair removal. I feel your pain, though. It's bad enough that we have to go through hip-spreading, gravity, medical problems, and gray hairs lol.

I knoe it comes with getting older. It is just one of those things that happens. I saw a whisker on my face yesterday. It freaked me out. I am only 25!! Lucky it was only one. I am sure I have more to come. Tweezers work. Maybe nair or something like that to remove the hair without having to wax.

personally, threading is the best and painless way to remove facial/unwanted hair. i just don't know how to do it. I need to go to my "threader".. :)
