Assessing your facial hair type (sponsored)


It might not be something you like to talk about, but unwanted facial hair takes an emotional toll on a woman’s self-esteem. Whether it’s on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, or elsewhere, facial hair can be embarrassing or make a woman feel unattractive. Luckily, there are products like the new Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo which gently and effectively removes unwanted facial hair in two simple steps — with no tell-tale irritation or redness.


But before you begin to remove your unwanted facial hair, it’s important to determine your facial hair type. According to Olay, hair can be classified into 3 types:

    1. Fine hair can be compared to the thin and soft fuzz on a peach
    2. Medium hair is more visible, but still soft to the touch
    3. Coarse hair tends to be more visible and stiff, similar to a kiwi

Every woman’s facial skin and hair is unique, so if you identify your hair type as fine to medium, you’re ready to find a hair removal system that works for you. For women with coarse hair, Olay will be introducing a hair removal system for tougher-to-remove hair in the near future, so stay tuned.
