Facial hair can cause discomfort, especially if it is located on the upper part of the lip, creating a mustache effect. Luckily you can eliminate it with different methods that go from the natural to the aesthetic.
Before removing facial hair, remember that it is a natural part of the body and it is the social standards of beauty that qualify it as something “unpleasant”; therefore, it is not an obligation or rule that you get rid of it. Start loving yourself and see how beautiful you are, and every treatment you take do it because you love your body, not because you hate its appearance.
