Facial hair is included in a long list of hush-hush topics women often feel pressured to ignore. While we openly talk about our awkward encounters during a Hollywood wax, when it comes to the hair on our faces, we avoid any mention of it.

We tend to focus on the aesthetic impact of having facial hair, but it can also have an emotional impact. In fact, research suggests 40% of women with facial hair feel uncomfortable in social settings. And it's understandable, given that we don't talk about it often enough.

Facial hair is also way more prevalent than you might think. While it varies from peach fuzz to hirsutism, many women are looking for solutions. We spoke with Stefanie Williams, MD, dermatologist and founder and medical director at Eudelo, to find out the causes and solutions for facial hair.
