Chin Hair Removal: How to Get Rid of Chin Hair

If I look closely in the mirror I can already spot some hairs that are going to become troublesome in the future but I already know all about how to get rid of chin hair so I’m not worrying too much.

At least,

I know which method I’m going to use.

But if you don’t or you want to try another chin hair removal method, I’m sure this post on how to get rid of chin hair will help you.

However,

I still postpone for as much as I can the time when I will have to remove my chin hair.

When the time comes, I’ll first use cold facial wax strips because they’re easy to use.

If I apply some aloe vera gel after and my usual moisturizer (argan oil plus vitamin C serum), my skin won’t get irritated.

After a while, when my skin gets used to the whole hairs being removed from the root process, I will use my epilator with the facial cap on, on speed 1.

Now that you know my plan, let’s talk more about the various ways on how to get rid of chin hair.

The Most Popular Chin Hair Removal Methods

There are 5 methods that I want to briefly discuss:

  • shaving
  • hair removal creams
  • threading
  • waxing
  • epilation

I’ve left out laser hair removal and electrolysis because those are not as widely accessible to everyone.

I’m just going to focus on the chin hair removal methods that can be considered by everyone no matter where they are located.


Shaving

If you want to know how to get rid of chin hair without feeling any pain or discomfort, shaving is the obvious answer.

don't use a regular razorI’m not talking about shaving in the traditional sense, where you have to use hot water and a shaving cream.

There are special facial razors, one of the best beeing the Tinkle razor.

How does it work?

You use it directly on dry skin without any preparation or fuss.

It cuts the hairs in a matter of seconds, whether you have peach fuzz or coarse hairs.

After that, all you need to do is apply a moisturizer.

The Tinkle is sharp enough to cut the hairs but the blade is made with the thought of removing facial hair only so there’s no risk of cuts or nicks.

The downside:

You will have to repeat the process in 2-3 days. Some even daily.

It’s quite inconvenient from this point of view but at least it’s a cheap method and you will be hair-free in no time.

Hair Removal Creams

depilatory creams for chin hair removal

Hair removal creams are the second chin hair removal method that is totally painless.

Even so,

The process is a bit more complicated than shaving.

It takes a bit longer and you must be more careful with how long you leave the cream on the skin, otherwise it might cause burns.

It’s all about following the instructions precisely.

Firstly,

You must test the product so you are sure that you’re not allergic to it.

Secondly,

You should leave the cream on your face for the amount of time that it says in the instructions, never longer.

Thirdly,

Besides the waiting time and the fact that you will have to repeat the process in 3-5 days, there are no other downsides.

From my point of view,

It’s still a complicated chin hair removal method.

The Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

The best hair removal cream for face at the moment is the Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo, for which there are two options:

  • for fine to medium hairs
  • and for medium to coarse

They’ve even considered this because it’s completely different dissolving the fine to medium hairs than it is dissolving the medium to coarse ones.

Furthermore,

It also comes with the Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo.

That one is applied prior to the cream.

It has one very important role:

Protecting the skin from the chemicals that are only intended for dissolving the hairs not for harming your beautiful facial skin.

If your answer to how to remove chin hair is depilatory creams, then the Olay Facial Hair Removal Duo should be your first option.

Threading

threading facial hairUnlike the above two methods on how to get rid of chin hair (shaving and hair removal creams),

Threading is not painless.

It’s a bit painful but manageable.

However,

You need to find a professional.

I definitely wouldn’t be able to remove hairs from the root with just a thread. I still find it amazing but this is an ancient method.

It has withstood the test of time because it’s that good. It’s still really popular.

Why do I recommend it for chin hair removal and overall facial hair removal (sideburns, cheeks, upper lip, and so on)?

Because it’s less likely to cause irritation and breakouts, unlike the next two methods (waxing and epilation).

If you have sensitive skin, threading is the first thing you should try if you want to remove those hairs from the root.

You still need to moisturize after each session but that’s mandatory no matter which chain hair removal method you’re using.

It’s the same for the rest of the body.


Waxing

waxing your chin hair with wax strips

When it comes to waxing your chin hair or any facial hair, there’s one decision to be made first:

  • are you going to use hard wax, the type that needs to be melted then it hardens and then it can be pulled with the hairs from the root?
  • or are you going to use cold facial wax strips, the type that are applied directly on the skin and then pulled without needing to get the right temperature and stuff like that?

Obviously,

Using cold facial wax strips is:

  • really easy
  • not messy
  • fast
  • perfect for any beginner, even if it’s your first chin hair removal

How do you use cold waxing strips?

  • heat the strip between the palm and then pull it apart
  • apply it in the direction in which the hairs are growing
  • massage the area a bit so that the wax sticks to the hairs, not the skin
  • grab a corner and pull in the opposite direction
  • the only thing to remember is to pull the strip quickly without any hesitation

It’s a painful method but a bit less painful than epilation. You’ll get used to it quickly.

The strips are not that expensive.

I’ve used them for many years to remove my upper lip hair before switching to epilation.

It’s what I also recommend for chin hair removal.

If you’re already accustomed to using a waxing kit with cold wax then you can use that one for chin hair removal, too.

Remember to sooth the irritated skin immediately after the hairs are gone.

Veet Facial Hair Remover Cold Wax Strips

The Veet cold wax strips are perfect for chin hair removal and for the rest of the face, as well.

There are 10 double sided strips.

Those should last quite a while. You’re probably end up using 2 double sided strips on your chin.

Don’t apply a strip on the same area more than twice, you might irritate the skin.

There are also 4 wipes for removing the residues.

Don’t throw away a wipe after using it just one time.

Epilation

removing facial hair with an epilator

Last but not least on how to get rid of chin hair,

There are tiny devices with a lot of rotating tweezers that grab the hairs and pull them from the root.

I’m talking about epilators.

I use such a device with a facial cap attached on to remove my upper lip hairs.

This method is a bit more painful than waxing, which in turn is a bit more painful than threading.

So,

On the pain scale we have threading, waxing, and epilators.

Even so,

The process is really fast.

In a minute I’m done with all my upper lip and I only have to repeat the same thing in two weeks’ time.

I hope that the chin area is not as sensitive as my upper lip. But I’m not to eager to find out on my own, so maybe you can help me by telling me how it’s been for you.

Epilators are popular for a number of reasons:

  • they’re cheap because once you pay for a device it will be with you for many years, there’s no refills no nothing;
  • not messy at all;
  • really easy to use by anyone

If you decide that you want an epilator for chin hair removal, there are two options:

What else do you need to know?

As I’ve already said,

If you have sensitive skin or if you’ve suffered from breakouts, it’s best to start with threading or with using cold facial wax strips for your chin hair removal.

After a year or so, you can get an epilator.

This is the best facial epilator.

It has 18 tweezers, which is more than any device from its category.

Besides all the above ways on how to get rid of chin hair,

There are two more chin hair removal methods that I haven’t tried on any part of my body or face.

One is laser hair removal, which offers long results, no hair regrowth for at least 2 years, and the other is electrolysis, which is permanent. The hairs will be gone for good.

What do you think, what will your answer be to how to get rid of chin hair, which method is the most convenient for you?
