Shaving your legs? Standard. Waxing your underarms? Yeah, OK, it has to be done. But tweezing your face? That's a lady maintenance task we didn’t sign up for.
Female facial hair isn't all that uncommon, although it can be a sign of health issues. “Excessive facial hair usually is associated with hair loss on your scalp and is associated with an excess of male hormones,” says trichologist Yvonne Solomon. “We all have hair all over our bodies, but with an excess of male hormones it becomes more coarse, and noticeable.”
However, she says there are other reasons you might see more noticeable hairs cropping up on your face, like an over or underactive adrenal gland. “Hair is the perfect barometer for what is going on inside,” she says. “If something is happening within your body, many times the first indicator will be a change in your hair.” Otherwise, it could be harmless. “It’s normal that as we age, our [female hormone] estrogen levels drop and [male hormone] testosterone becomes more influential.” To know for sure, visit an endocrinologist for a blood test, but in the meantime, here are her top methods for dealing with facial hair growth.
