I can't afford to start elecrolysis at the moment & want to wait until i've started HRT to make it more effective/efficiant.
Because of ecxma I can't use too much make-up, partly because I get too hot & my skin fares up & partly because when my skin is flaky foundation makes it look worse than it really is.
I decided a few days ago to let my hair grow a bit & try plucking it out, I didn't care how long it would take as it would be worth it in the long run not to have to shave for a couple of weeks.
I found the hairs around my jaw & cheeks was almost painless as long as I pulled the skin tight, chin hairs hurt like hell to pluck but I came unstuck as soon as I tried to pluck the hairs from my top lip. . . . AAARGH!!!!!! doesn't even come close to describing it, after half a dozen hair were plucked I couldn't see a thing due to my eyes watering too much.
I'm just really glad that I did a test of each area before I spent my whole weekend with tweezers in hand.
If anyone has managed to tweezer their facial hair off then they deserve a medal of epic proportions.
If anyone is considering doing this then try your top lip first, if you can handle the pain & watering eyes then the rest of your face will be plain sailing, as a famous space smuggler once said "good luck, you'll need it"
