androgen blocking bcps can improve (lessen) unwanted facial hair and acne. So that might be an angle worth investigating.

I"m actually on birth control..but not for pregnancy prevation....being as it is...I'm abstinant.

I have something called Pre-mature Ovarian Failure, and I'm on birth control b/c its acting as hormone replacement therapy. So basically, I have a hormone imbalance, and its characteristics are much like menopause...cept kinda worse, and i just want to know how to get rid of facial hair...

Zit's and dry skin....whatever!

I'm used to that...and with the regimen, its getting better, except the dry skin part,

but a girl having facial hair, not just blonde hair, is embaressing!

wow thats a long explination smile.gif

Ok well you are probably already on a smiliar birth control pill to what I would have suggested. Some birth control bills can really help hirsutism (excess hair) and acne at the same time. So you might want to mention to your specialist to see whether meds can address all your symptoms at once.

If you can bleach the hair to reduce its appearance that might help. A bleaching product would use hydrogen peroxide...which is similar to benzoyl peroxide...so you pretty much know what to expect.

I've never been a fan of ripping hair out (am a wuss) so I can't give you much advice about depillatory products or waxes. You can also get laser treatment these days for excess hair...but that is big $$.

That is pretty much all I have got to suggest. Good luck.
