Today, I decided to use an at-home waxing kit for the first time to get rid of the hair on my upper lip. After experiencing the trauma of waxing, I fell asleep. A few hours later, I woke up to see that I now have acne everywhere I had waxed. I have an acne mustache. FML

Leaving the hair would've shaved you the embarrassment.


not necessarily. I know girls who shave there and they're fine.

The more you shave the thicker the hair gets because of the stimulation of the razor. Waxing pulls it out from the root which will eventually make it dissappear. Think this hairy lady might just be a bit allergic to the wax. Try tweezers next time sweetheart..takes more time but you'll be zit free hopefully.

36= it doesn't make it grow back thicker, it just looks that way because when the hair starts growing back it's blunt and has not been exposed to the sun and possibly lightened.

If you're careful with shaving then you should be fine.

So your beard grew out thick and awesome for the first year or so? No shaving made it thicker? How cool are you omggg

#46, most people start shaving the second their hair grows in. It's not going to be nearly as thick as it will eventually be for another few years, so it gives the illusion that shaving made it happen. The hair also no longer has the natural tapered end that a fresh hair does. It's the most incorrect old wives tail, and if it were really true, your leg hair would be as thick as tree trunks right now.

I've always shaved my upper lip and had no bad results. Everyone's different though I guess

Epilator. Removes from the root, quicker than tweezing. Hurts on we sensitive areas though. Removing the hair from the root can over time weaken the follicle leading to a semipermanent or permanent reduction in hair too.

That epilator thing hurts like a bitch. I'd rather look like cousin it.

If waxing isn't for you I suggest going conchita wurst style.

at least you don't have an actual mustache anymore

I'm sorry op! Next time you can maybe try shaving or bleaching :) I hope it goes away soon.

that happens to me sometimes you have to make sure you pit this type of oil or lotion on after your done waxing off your hair or you will break out
