Shaving is not the ideal method of temporary facial hair removal for women, but it can sometimes be the only option for women suffering with extreme cases of excessive growth, such as those who suffer from PCOS or other conditions that place hormonal stresses upon the body.
We have been discussing temporary facial hair removal for women in this series, to examine the adverse affects that the most common methods bring, often exacerbating the problem. Although shaving is perfectly acceptable for large areas of hair removal, such as the legs, every woman who shaves will notice that the hairs grow back with a coarser and thicker appearance than they had before. This leads to the necessity to shave more often, usually every few days, until shaving becomes an integrated part of the normal beauty routine.
Imagine if that beauty regime suddenly involved shaving the face. Facial hair removal for women is less common, but still a surprising 40% of all women have excess facial hair growth at some point during their lives.
Although we accept that shaving is not ideal for the sensitive skin of a woman’s face, resulting in dryness, soreness and over time, toughens up the skin, we also realise that shaving does not encourage more excess, thick hair to grow, nor does it damage or alter the structure of the hair follicle beneath the skin, unlike plucking and waxing. Shaving however, can alter the appearance of the hair, as it blunts the tapered ends off, which results in thicker, coarser-looking hair with sharp, whisker-like regrowth.
In extreme cases, shaving is the only method of facial hair removal for women to maintain a level of control over the excessive growth.The occurrence of the swift regrowth can cause heightened stress for women and can lead to depression, self-consciousness and anxiety.
