What is unwanted body hair?
Whether it’s downy hairs on the face or dark hairs on the legs unwanted hair is beauty enemy number one for most women and a growing number of men. Unwanted hair is not only time consuming to get rid of but also an ongoing process which is why a more of us are choosing to remove it for good enabling us to wear the clothes we want to wear and live our lives without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious.
What causes unwanted hair?
Our genes dictate the colour of our body hair and the pattern and density of growth.
Some women have a condition called hirsutism where coarse dark hairs appear on the chin, upper lip and cheeks. The exact cause of hirsutism is unknown although an excess of male hormones indicated in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and genetic factors may play a part.
