I've been using the following razors from Amazon for roughly two years. I replace them every month or so. They work great and my makeup application is much better because I use these.
I use a razor on most of my face. I get dark mustache hairs that I have to constantly tweeze. I have very sensitive skin so I tested this on my neck before doing my face.
I use Tinkle Eyebrow Razors from Amazon.
Edit. There are fake versions on this brand so be careful when ordering online.
I've had good experiences with dermaplaning my face, this gets rid of peach fuzz and dead skin cells. I use these tools from amazon. They have a safety cover but you should still be careful because you can still get small cuts.
I don't use water or shaving cream, I use them dry. I just angle the razor to my face and carefully shave the hair. Then I wipe the hair on a paper towel or piece of toilet paper. After I'm done I usually wash my face or wipe my face off for any loose hair I missed. Then I apply something to moisturize and help heal my face from any possible irritation. Sometimes your face will be a bit red afterwards, but this goes away. I've never had problems with breaking out afterwards, and I have acne-prone skin with occasional cysts.
I'm not sure why you broke out, maybe it was the shaving lotion? And I've never heard that shaving your face was bad for you. Usually people say your hair will grow back thicker but this isn't true, maybe that's why she thought it was bad?
It's unfortunate you had such a bad experience. In the future if you decide to try again, hopefully you have a better experience and more success.
I'm not sure if my experience helps much, but I thought I'd share. :)
I shave and absolutely love it! I just pick up these from Amazon and throw one in my purse, my toiletry bag, my makeup bag, and then one at work because my hair has a mind of its own.
I've found that it helps my skin stay healthy and happy because the razor also helps by removing a small number of dead skin cells.
My suggestion for using the small razors is after you take a shower, apply a creamy face cleanser or lotion to your chin/neck/cheeks and then take the blade down the areas with grain of the hair. This will prevent you from getting razor burn and ingrown hairs.
Don’t do it! I got paradoxal hypertrichosis on my face and back. It was a waste of money. I found out the hard way that laser doesn’t work if the hair is not thick.
I would recommend to try this eyebrow razor to shave your face. Just used some aloe gel and use the razor. Does wonders!

If the hair on face really bothers you, then go for electrolysis. It takes time and can be maybe more expensive than laser depending on the amount of hair.
I use those eyebrow razors and they really work wonders! And a lot of people use them to dermaplane so it isn’t really considered weird either. A pack of 6 is only like $4 on Amazon!

I was looking for a replacement for this kind of razor that I and a lot of other women use to groom their brows. The interesting part of the design is the little ridges on the blade, and they make it so that it's actually really easy to shave without a lot of lather. I was trying to find an alternative and came across featherweight proguard blades used for a shavette. Does anyone have any experience with either the blades or a shavette that would accept those blades?
My electrolysis technician likes to remind me "No one is ever going to see you the same way you see yourself in your bathroom mirror!" That's not a flowery figure of speech, that is just the plain truth of science! My bathroom mirror has bright lights and when I look I get my face right up in there and stare and I'm horrified at all the little imperfections I see. But the truth is unless I star in a high-definition movie, no one is going to ever see my face that close, for that long, in that light. Sometimes even the hairs I "see" are really just ones I can feel when I rub my face the right way. No one would ever see them unless they are rubbing my face and - well, that's not going to happen!
I agree with the others who suggested dermaplaning. I use a little eyebrow razor to scrape the baby hairs off my face once I've deemed them to be at a ridiculous length. Usually every couple months. When I can see them in the mirror standing far enough back!
I also don't wear makeup because I feel like makeup clings to the hair and makes it stand out more. I just avoid it altogether but I wonder if there's tips for putting on makeup for people with hairy faces? Other than scraping it off. Are you using the right makeup that isn't accentuating your fuzz?
Anyway....consider the source when looking in the mirror. Maybe carry around a compact mirror and see how you look in different light at normal distances. You need to see yourself how others see you!
I’m pretty sensitive and I use the Tinkle razors without any problem. After washing my face, hold at a 45 degree angle to face and lightly shave in the same direction as the hair. Apply a good moisturizer afterward. My skin is always fine in the morning. Dorco Tinkle Eyebrow Razor, Hair Trimmer Shaver and Tough Up Tool, Facial Razor with Safety Cover, 6 Razors [link]
It’s your face! Definitely only do it if you want to.
I personally would never try waxing, that hurts!!
I have only been shaving my face since last summer, but I love how it feels so nice and smooth. I also find that my makeup applies nicer and looks significantly better without the peach fuzz coming through.
I use these little razors from amazon, super cheap and not abrasive at all. razors
And typically only shave my entire face once a month. My mustache area I’ll touch up every two weeks tho only because that does grow the fastest.
I shave after a shower, then follow up with a face oil(I love using rose) or just moisturizer to keep everything hydrated and non irritated.
In a dermatologist office, the dermaplaner can be used to remove hair and a thin layer of skin since they use surgical razors. At home, it's glorified face razor. You do not need a special device to shave your face; most of us use small face razors like these from Amazon. Personally I used a 5 blade men's razor or those tiny eyebrow razors.
I do shave my face about once per week, or at least just my mustache. I never ever shave over active acne. Personally, I would never dermaroll at home. Needles and all that just put too much risk for me to do it myself.

Reiterating that you are definitely not alone! The hair is completely natural and nothing to be ashamed of, but like others have mentioned there's a reason the hair removal industry exists.
I use these Tinkle razors pretty much every time I go out to make sure there's no unwanted hair:
They're marketed for touching up your eyebrows but I use them on my lip and they work great. Tinkle is the brand I've found that reliably doesn't rust or cut, so it's super useful for quick shaves. Plus they're pretty cheap!
So I started using the Tinkle razors because of a recommendation from this thread.
THEY'RE AWESOME. Would highly recommend. You don't even have to use water with them. So far I've only needed to touch up my upper lip once/twice a week.
*If you use actives, I wouldn't use it right before or after...I'd wait a day or two just to make sure your skin isn't too sensitive.
Mine is not noticeable at all but for some reason when my anxiety is out of control it drives me CRAZY and kind of pull/pick at it?? This has become necessary
First off, kudos to you to trying to look better for yourself. No one is "too ugly" to put effort into their appearance, and you might find you feel a lot better about yourself once you do start putting effort into your appearance. I know I certainly don't feel good when I don't put into any effort and when I put in more, I definitely feel more confident.
So first, let's start with what you bring up first: Body. Working out is a great way to feel healthier and feel more confident in yourself. However, know that if you already have body issues, they will not go away with becoming skinnier. I learned this a while back, but once you are skinnier, you will just find something else to nitpick on your body so be mindful and accepting of yourself as you are. I would also recommend taking a women's multivitamin and drinking the correct amount of water as you suggested. Chloe Ting does have great workouts but they are mainly cardio. You might notice some slight muscle definition and gain but it'll plateau rather quickly.
Secondly, hormonal birth control can be very difficult to be on! It's not so simple as starting it and it will magically reducing the one thing you want to reduce (though that would be nice). It can give you acne, it can make you gain weight, it can make you depressed, and you will probably feel like shit for the first few months you start taking it. I was personally really lucky with hormonal birth control and the first pill I started on worked just fine for me and had very little side effects, but I know more women who go on it and have pretty adverse side affects than those like me who don't.
I personally manage body hair with a hair trimmer, eyebrow razers, and shaving. Waxing takes too much time imo and is rather annoying, but trimming is really easy and cuts the hair really short (albeit the hair will still be there). I trim some parts of my body hair (usually just my arms and I use the ManScaped Lawn Mower 3.0), shave my armpits and legs, and then use the eyebrow razers (these guys: https://www.amazon.com/Tinkle-Eyebrow-Razor-Pack-6/dp/B014HNOXZS/ref=sr_1_7?crid=3GOJWRCAJNKY8&dchild=1&keywords=eyebrow+razor&qid=1611284937&sprefix=eyebrow+raz%2Caps%2C309&sr=8-7) to take the peach fuzz off my face. I also use the eyebrow razers to manage my brows a bit (usually only use them to take hairs off the top of them). I have never ever had an issue with these razer making my facial hair appear darker or thicker - it just comes back as peach fuzz every time.
Moisturizing your body makes a HUGE difference in the texture and softness of your body's skin. I used to never do it and then randomly decided to and hoo boy there is such a difference. My recommendation is just find a thinner moisturizer with a pump (I like Jergen's, you can find them at any Walmart). I always moisturize before bed. I also use a Wet-Skin moisturizer after the shower (basically just a lotion you put on while still wet in the shower). I also use the Jergen's wet-skin moisturizer, really love it.
Okay, now let's move onto skin. Skincare can kinda be trial and error, ngl. I've used so many products over the years. What really helped me improve my skin quickly was Curology (https://curology.com/). They do custom skincare treatments (basically just a cream you put on at home at night before moisturizer) and they really work.
The basics of a skincare routine is cleanse, moisturize, and then protect (AKA apply SPF in the morning). This is as basic as it gets. If you feel like you want or need more, then you can add more but it's not necessary. Find out what your skin type is and try out some products. If you're interested in Curology, do that first before buying other products because the dermatologists at Curology ask you to use products without other actives (actives are ingredients such as vitamin C, retinol, AHAs, BHAs, PHAs, etc.) in them.
SPF is really important because sun exposure is the #1 cause of skin aging. Applying SPF daily (even on rainy, cloudy, snowy, non-sunny days) will help with your acne scars as well, as those often darken due to sun exposure. Your forehead being darker might be something you can fix, but it also might not be. Some people's skin just have different levels of pigmentation on different areas of their bodies and that's pretty normal if you have darker skin.
And then fashion, this is really hard to give advice on ngl. Buy thing you like but you know you will actually wear. Do not fall into that trap mentality you seem to have now, where once you look XYZ that you will be happier or love yourself more. As I mentioned earlier, if you have body issues, they don't go away once you look a certain way. They will still be there, but maybe manifest in a different way than previous. Again, try to love and accept your body no matter the way it looks. Focus on what makes you feel good and healthy, and not how much you weigh or how your body looks.
Yeah I wonder if Christi even got tested before flying out of PA.
I've still gotten my eyebrows done but for my lip these facial razors have saved me for now https://www.amazon.com/Tinkle-Eyebrow-Razor-Pack-6/dp/B014HNOXZS/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=facial+razors&qid=1607540059&sr=8-6
I try not to order from amazon too often but these have been really helpful for facial shaving!
It's perfectly normal, and as I got a little older I realized that every few months I grow a really dark singular hair on my chin. I pluck it out, and if your moustache bothers you, I recommend using Tinkle razors. They're gentler than normal razors you use to shave legs, and since they're a single blade it reduces chances of accidentally cutting your face. Here's the article I read on how to use it; I felt intimidated at first but eventually I got used to it.
I also recommend trying it out all over your face! Lots of ladies do this to remove the peach fuzz all over the face, but I personally use it to exfoliate! It helps get rid of a lot of dead skin, and sometimes I'll either do this instead of using an exfoliator in the shower or do it lightly before using the exfoliator.
You can have it waxed at a salon, or use a facial depilatory like Nair, or you can shave it off with one of these (great for the whole face, BTW):
Get the tiny Korean face razors. The six pack has prime shipping and is $5– Tinkle Eyebrow Razor Pack of 6 .Pretty not irritating, cheap, convenient, effective = win
Person with plenty of eyebrows here. Grooming your eyebrows will looked groomed, so the mental hurdle of "looking feminine" is something you need to just ignore. It's like when men shop for hair product and what a "no product" look.
ANYWAYS! I found some great tools that make it super easy to help put a little shape and control without adding much effort. I've also found that they make it easy to prevent overdoing
Eyebrow/face razor: You've problem seen these before, they're little razors on a handle that are great at taking out small/thinner hairs on the face. If you get super close to your eyebrows in a good mirror, you'll notice that they're surrounded by tons of stray hairs. Cleaning up those stray hairs without actually cutting into the eyebrow can really help define your natural shape. I especially like to use these on the fuzz underside of my eyebrows because plucking hairs from skin that thin hurts like hell. Also, they're great for shaving fuzz off face. I shave the fuzz off my cheeks because the hair scatters light and makes my face look slightly more dull. CAUTION: Do not use these on days you exfoliate and use a gentle hand, these are not the sharpest razor so they can cause irritation if you're dragging them along your skin.
Eyeshadow! But for your eyebrows!: Find an eyeshadow that matches your eyebrow color and use it to fill in your brows. You don't need a lot by any means. In this cause think of it more as filling in your existing shape instead of attempting to create a shape. If your eyebrows are really spare, maybe try a combination of eyebrow pencil and powder. Use a light hand and smudge out the pencil to prevent any hard lines in spaces you're lacking and then dust with a fine layer of eyeshadow all over. For eyeshadow I strongly recommend a brush instead of those little free q-tip looking brushes that come with cheap compacts. Brushes will help to evenly coat the hairs and spread better.
To comb the hairs: Combing the hairs really makes a difference because it helps to create uniformity. Some people can brush their eyebrow hairs and they'll stay. If that's not the case for you one "red carpet hack" is to smudge the smallest amount of chapstick on your finger/tiny comb and use it to set your eyebrows (because of the wax). You can use eyebrow/eyelash clear mascara, but sometimes they're just too heavy if you're going to a minimal look.
Also! Niacinamide is said to be good for hairgrowth and shine. I have noticed that since I've been using niacinamide containing products, which I smear all over my face, my eyelash and eyebrows have been rather lustrous lol
Maybe the razors are too sharp? These are the ones I use, love them to death [link]
So cute! I love the different colors of pink in your eyeshadow, lips and hair. They go well together!! I bet you could experiment with incorporating a pink like your lips blended into your eyeshadow.
I know people have pointed out suggestions for your brows, I just wanted to add that I use these little facial razors to shape my brows: [link]
Makes it super easy to get into those tight spots for a clean look, but without having to spend the time/hassle of plucking. Just a suggestion!
