Hey Guys and Gals,
I just joined this forum because so many of you are similar to me. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I have been taking electrolysis since about June 2004 to now, March 2005 on my upperlip.
First of all, I am an 18 year old female, born in the Caribbean. I am of Indian decent, so my skin is light brown for the most part.
My skin is very sensitive and I have never known what to do about my facial hair. I tried hair creams and waxing and shaving and nothing worked. I used to get burns so I started going to get it treated with electrolysis. After treatment, my skin is always swollen and red, (which I think is normal) but then eventually I break out with little zits all over. The area also had gotten quite dark, so even if I dont have hairs, it still looks like I have a moustache. How the heck to I treat this?? Its driving me crazy. I constantly feel insecure with it.
I am a working and college going girl, so my treatments are usually on the run. I hate going to school with a swollen upper lip thats dark and has zits all over.
If anyone can give me advice on how to treat these various and disturbing issues please let me know.
I know sunblock is suppose to stop my skin from getting dark, but frankly, it doesnt seem to do anything.
Thank You all for your input.
