While conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome can cause the growth of such unruly hair, idiopathic hirsutism usually has no underlying cause, other than a higher-than-usual prevalence of androgens i. Women with the condition tend to grow thick, dark hairs on their back, upper-lip, breasts, chin, chest, or tummy, and battling the fuzz as well as the stubble and ingrown hairs associated with removal may lead to frustration and insecurity. While there are treatments available, like a drug called Spironolactone, which blocks androgen receptors and reduces testosterone, or creams like Vaniqa, many are costly.
For some, it's empowering to go against the grain and our society's fixation with female hairless bodies. It's natural, so if you've got it, flaunt it. For others, seeing visible armpit and leg hair still creates discomfort.
I am generally really hairy all over — I have been to see my GP about it, but she said there was nothing to worry about. However, I have heard that going on the Pill can help to get rid of the excess hair on your body due to the oestrogen in the pills. No, I'm afraid the Pill won't help get rid of this hair.
Is it true that the sugar scrub helps prevent ingrown hairs? And is it beneficial or unnecessary? Thank you. Ask Dr.
How dare she, a womanreveal such an unsightly thing? Well, to all of you chastising Miley and her armpit hair, you need to take a breather and realize that not only is body hair natural, but being hairy is good for you … or so says science. Not only is being hairy good for you, no matter your gender, but it also tells a lot about the inner workings of your body, like your circulation and possibly even your intelligence.
My name is Anna, and I am a hair-removal addict. I've been plucking, waxing, threading, epilating and lasering virtually every part of myself ever since I was a monobrowed year-old. Both my parents are Greek which means I was lucky enough to inherit a hirsute body that constantly sprouts thick, coarse black hair everywhere - including my stomach, chin, nostrils and back.
Does anyone else have little hairs on the side of their hand? Right under their pinky finger? Protip : Always brush your foundation on with top-to-bottom strokes, it smooths your peach fuzz down!
When it comes to grooming, men have followed the lead of women in recent years, and opted for a hair free body. There is no shame in a man admitting to waxing or shaving these days, preferring a polished torso to a hairy chest. Nothing wrong with a bit of a tidy up but men stripping themselves of all masculinity completely seems a waste.
What a way to kick off the New Year by battling a stigma around body confidence. This campaign is to stop women feeling embrasssed of their body hair. Ditching the shave and letting it grow au naturale!
