The scary reason you should never shave your facial hair

Tell us, do you shave the tiny little hairs on your face? Don't worry—you're not alone.

Marilyn Monroe’s beauty secret for maintaining a soft and glowing face was her facial hair. Shaving your facial hair could have several unpleasant consequences.

A not so innocent beauty trend

What may seem like an innocent beauty trend could have harmful implications. For instance, shaving the delicate skin on your face could result in cuts, ingrown hairs, irritation, and spots. If you shave your face then expect to have strong and thick stubble regrowth.

What's the alternative?

Is there an alternative solution? Yes! Try exfoliating your skin using a natural facial scrub on a weekly basis. This will remove all your dead skin cells whilst giving you soft and glowing skin. Mix coconut oil, sugar, and honey and apply it on your face then rinse thoroughly.

Don't forget, it's always important to moisturise your skin on a daily basis. If your facial hair is very dark then you could try bleaching it once a week or consulting with a beauty professional for other treatments.
