I remember in grad school a certain friend of mine (who was a wee bit older than me) was telling me about how she was getting new facial hair and that happens as women get older. In my head, I hoped she was wrong because I have always been paranoid about people thinking I have a mustache. Sure, I shouldn't care what people think of my looks... but, seriously.
Anyway, I chalked it up to hoping she was wrong... but she wasn't. As the years have progressed, I'm starting to notice weird hairy things happening to my face- and it's scary! You always see the stereotypes of old men with hair growing out of their ears and nose and extremely bushy eyebrows. Well, there's a reason it's a stereotype! As people age (not ALL people), the hair on their face can get thicker and longer.
I used to pride myself on the fact that I never had to touch my eyebrows. Friends in high school would shave and tweeze their eyebrows. The shavers were awful because if they didn't do it daily, the stubble was pretty obvious. And the tweezers would make them way too thin! But there I was, not doing anything to them. In fact, I never had to tweeze or shave anywhere on my face!
Okay, now I feel like I need to go get the tweezers because just typing this is making me paranoid. Has anyone else noticed an increase in facial hair as you have gotten older? Do you do anything about it or just go natural?
