Indian Brown Skin Facial Hair Removal

2 posts in this topic

Hello all

I am Indian. And my sideburns are really yuck.. I have tried threading them and they grew back worse than before and I broke out. I have waxed them a week back and religiously use this cream called Hovan's gold and not broken out yet. Fingers crossed.

So what have your experiences with facial waxing been.?

Also if anyone who has brown/olive skin and got laser done for their facial hair let me know about your experience. I read it can cause pigmentation issues.

Hey! I saw this now when I checked your profile....it's a late response, but I have some experience with managing facial hair. You could try a laser treatment or electrolysis. Waxing can irritate the area, and it will not diminish the hair regrowth. The risks of laser treatment are that it can trigger dormant hair in nearby areas (e.g. your cheeks), and electrolysis takes too long to fully treat all the hair follicles. I used to bleach them but eventually got tired of that.

My experience with laser was that it got rid of most of the coarse hair, but unfortunately it triggered hair growth in other parts of my face...but that could also be hormonal, at least partially.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
