All women can expect to have some degree of hair growth on the top lip, but some women can find that it becomes quite a noticeable ‘moustache’.
Facial hair varies in colour, thickness and volume as we age and our bodies go through hormonal changes. For those with dark and/or thick hair, the top lip can become quite a problem. If the hair changes, it could be related to a hormonal imbalance perhaps due to menopause or polycystic ovaries and it is worth checking with a GP if it seems abnormal.
However, nowadays many women arrange to have hair removal for the top lip to avoid a ‘shadow’ that can appear even with fine or light coloured hair.
There are a number ways to deal with it, but the overriding key is to bear in mind that the skin around your mouth is sensitive and delicate, so treatment needs to be gentle and suitable for the facial area.
