Removing a woman's beard: Why shaving is not recommended

You may have wondered why we didn't talk about the most obvious method for removing your beard - namely shave - have spoken.

Here's why: A woman's beard usually has a finer texture than the hair on the legs or armpits. Therefore, most razor blades are not suitable for this purpose and can cause irritation, cuts and ingrown hairs. Additionally, shaving only removes the top layer of your hair while leaving the root intact. In concrete terms, this means that your hair can grow back faster.

Shaving also increases the risk of infections, especially if the shaving tool is not clean or sharp enough. Improper shaving also causes hair follicles to thicken, which can result in painful bumps. We therefore say: Hands off – and get waxing.

If you want to permanently remove your beard, waxing is definitely one of the two best options.

Unlike waxing, which only offers a temporary solution, laser hair removal is long-lasting – and low in pain. So after the successfully completed sessions, you can enjoy a smooth and hairless face in the long term without having to constantly worry about your facial hair.
