How to De-Fuzz Your Face: Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know

Facial hair removal is a seriously hot topic, but it's also a rather taboo subject. I've made some almighty mistakes in the past when it comes to hair removal—the main one being that I've gone at peach fuzz as if it were a Richard from Friends–style 'stache. It's been through everything, including extra-strength hair removal creams left on much too long and wax ripped not once, but multiple times from the same bit of barely there hair. (I know, I know.) But I know I'm not alone. We've all been there, so why not give you a handy guide on how to de-fuzz?

I like to think I've got a good grip on de-fuzzing facial hair these days, in part because my key approach is leaving it in the hands of experts. It's a tricky area, though. Because peach fuzz is still treated as a bit of a taboo subject, many don't discuss their options and put delicate facial skin through ill-informed DIY jobs. Then there's the matter of how to soothe a burnt upper lip if it all goes painfully wrong, or the question surrounding regrowth and whether it really comes back thicker. So I spoke to some of the most knowledgeable beauty experts in the business to answer all of your de-fuzzing queries.
