3. Waxing

Waxing upper lip is convenient and quick! There are multiple waxes like a Brazilian wax that helps removing really small hair unlike normal wax that requires a certain length of hair.

You can also try the method of sugaring, which is basically sugar dissolved in water and semi solidified to get a wax consistency!

The results last longer, the process is less painful and it is fast!




4. Bleach

It’s a great method to hide light hair on upper lips and get a glowing skin too! Bleaching turns your hair into golden color that merges with the skin. The hair isn’t removed.

For those who do not prefer hair removal for now or have very small hair that cannot be removed, they can opt for bleaching.

It de-tans your skin too due to the peroxide content! Be careful that you do not bleach too often.

 Also, have a skin patch test to ensure that your skin sensitivity doesn’t react.




5. Dermaplanning or face shaving

This is one of the most unconventional methods, but it works wonders!

The method basically uses a scalpel shaped face razor and removes hair and dead skin!

It's popular in the west and there are many online sites selling face razors! There are no side effects.

The hair doesn’t grow back thick or dark either! Also, your skin gets exfoliated! You can redo it once or twice a week, depending on your hair growth!
