Beauty Q&A: How Do I Remove Facial Hair On My Own?
There are some mandatory beauty rituals that just don’t phase us anymore (i.e. washing our face everyday, practicing our nightly skincare routine and slathering on sunscreen every morning before makeup). Then there are some other beauty-related practices that are much more intimidating and definitely leave room for failure. For starters, sunless self-tanning, at-home waxing or — what we’re here to discuss — safely and successfully removing your unwanted facial hair at home.
When it comes to removing facial hair (like the peach fuzz on your upper lip, jawline, chin, etc.) there are so many different tricks and tools out there to help you achieve flawless looking smooth skin — be it through dermaplaning, shaving, or scouting out your local Ulta Beauty for an affordable, non-scary looking tool. If the latter sounds the most appealing to you, good news! — we’ve done the work for you to determine that a reliable, affordable and most importantly, painless option is the Finishing Touch Flawless. Not only is it super affordable, but it resembles a tube of lipstick, will (legally) pass by TSA and is basically foolproof.
According to the Finishing Touch Flawless team, the biggest misconception about removing facial hair is that your hair will grow back faster or thicker. The product doesn’t have the ability to change the biology of your hair follicle, thus this long-held belief that your mom and grandparents drilled into your brain is far from true.
How to Use Your Finishing Touch Flawless:
STEP 1: Cleanse your skin. For best results, use before applying your skincare or makeup or after cleansing your skin of any product.
STEP 2: Remove the cap and switch your product into the “ON” position.
STEP 3: Next, gently glide the tool in circular motions around the areas where you want to remove hair. Take advantage of the tool’s built-in light to help you ensure that you don’t miss any unwanted hair. Note that it’s normal for your Finishing Touch Flawless to feel warm.
STEP 4: When you’re finished, twist off the head and tap it against a waste basket to empty if of any hair that has accumulated inside.
STEP 5: Apply your skincare and makeup as normal.
