Excess Hair & Acne?

I have (what I think) is kind of a lot of hair on the sides of my face and am wondering if this is making my acne worse?!

The hair is like peach fuzz but there's a lot of it. (My fiance, friends and family say they would've never even noticed if I didn't point it out).

Anyone else experience this? Should I go and get it waxed or just leave it alone?

Thanks! ;)

Excess hair and acne can be signs of PCOS in women. Perhaps you might consider having your hormonal levels checked the next time you go to a doctor for a checkup.

I wax my face every few months just because I love how totally smooth it is and how nicely makeup applies when I'm fur-less. But my experience of not breaking out isn't necessarily typical. I however never get ingrown hairs from waxing, ever, on the face.
