I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), which gives me extra facial hair and acne due to excess adrogens. I take spirololactone, which is supposed to suck up extra testosterone or something like that. Much of the facial hair has gone away, but I still go through phases where it gets worse again.

My favorite solution for face and body hair is the Braun Silk Epil. It's a's like a shaver that you plug in, except it rips the hair out at the root, sort of like the epilady from the late 80s. I use it all over the place - armpits, legs, but find it especially helpful for facial hair, because I can get it whenever I see it crop up, instead of waiting for the next waxing appointment.

At first, it feels a bit painful to use the Silk Epil, but your body quickly adjusts. I'm a fan!
