Are you embarrassed by facial hair? Five ways to deal with pesky overgrowth during the menopause.

We’re all familiar with the rogue chin hair or the upper lip fuzz.

Yet, many of us are embarrassed about our facial hair. Not only that, it can impact our self-esteem and confidence.

A study in 2009 found 75% of women in the UK reported suffering from clinical levels of anxiety due to their facial hair. While 40% said, their unwanted facial hair left them uncomfortable attending social events.

How much facial hair you have depends a lot on your age (and genetics).

But as we get older, we may notice our facial hair gets thicker, darker, and there’s just more of it.

Our once soft duvet of fuzz now resembles a 13-year-old boys moustache. While our chin hair’s have coordinated themselves into a goatee.

If you’re wondering what the hell is going on — the answer is hormones.
