Lets talk about one of the more embarrassing symptoms of PCOS... facial hair.
I’ve been really lucky in that I don’t have much but I know others struggle with dark hairs appearing on their upper lip, stomach, and even back.
I remember when I first started noticing peach fuzz on my face 6 months after going off birth control, I immediately felt self conscious. Then a few months later a couple dark hairs appeared on my upper lip. I had my face dermaplaned which took it all away for about a month and then it all came back. I remember hoping that since I had been working so hard on balancing my hormones that maybe it would just not grow back. When it did, I did what I do best, began searching for natural ways to remove this unwanted hair.
My current solution is sugar waxing. I made a really simple recipe with sugar, water, and lemon. I make a small batch and warm it up about once a month for a quick upper lip wax. It’s been working well really well for me, I would love to someday be in remission from all my PCOS symptoms but until then I’ll keep trying to find natural solutions 🧡
