I'm a teen girl, and this might be kinda weird, but under my nose area (peach fuzz) it kind looks like I'm growing a mustache ... read below

ok so like I'm a normal teen girl and this is kinda a little weird or personal to ask, but like ubove my lip and under my nose... (peach fuzz :P) it kinda looks like I'm growing a mustache, I mean all girls have peach fuzz, but mine is kinda long (not the guys kind where it's spiky) its just a little long, not very much like when I look in the mirror, I can see it, it's not spiky at all it just looks smooth, but it looks like I'm growing a mustache... I DO NOT take drugs, and I don't think it's a medical condition..... I need advice, and I'm not going to the doctor or shaving it off..... please be nice :) will it go away?!? or at least not be that noticable?! it doesn't look that bad but to me it kinda does when I think about it :(

It's very normal, it's just not accepted in today's culture.
Shaving it may make it grow out thicker. Don't use Nair, the skin on your face is way too sensitive and it will result in a chemical burn.
Both my sisters and mother all used facial hair bleach to hide it.
It worked very well from what I saw. No one noticed it, or ever made fun of them.

A girl growing a moustache isn't unheard of; it's a whole lot more common than most people think, because this depends on somebody's genes. This is normal, but if you want to get rid of the hair, you can have it waxed or bleach it to lighten the hairs if they are a bit dark.

Just ask your mom to wax it.

It starts at puberty! All women grow hair on their upper lip! If you have dark hair, it'll show more! It will get noticeable, people will tease you, trust me! Really, without going to a doctor, which I'm embarrassed to do even at my age, you can shave it, wax it or nair! Bleaching just lightens the hair, it's still very noticeable! I've had this problem since I was your age! a little makeup might help for now! But, eventually, it's gonna grow & get darker!

***** CAUTION******
Nair will give you a red rash mustache! It'll bleed & burn & stay there for days!
Either shave it or let it grow out for months & get it waxed! Wax is still gonna leave a red mark for a couple days!
My advice; Shave it very carefully! Use a mans disposable razor, women's are shaped wrong!
I can't believe I put this out there for the world to see! Oh well!!
Good luck, Sweetie!! :-)

Probably due to your hormones, you may notice it fade during different times of the month then get darker and
Thicker at other times , bleaching is an option and of course you can pluck them. Hurts like heck, but you can do it on your own

It's not a big deal and quite common. Remove it any way that is most comfortable for you. Waxing or shaving will not make it grow back darker( that is a myth) but bleaching looks weird because it's still there but blonde. Just get rid of it if it bothers you.

Waxing is the most effective way to remove facial hair--it's uncomfortable, but not unbearable. Amazon sells kits for waxing, and so does Sally Beauty--look for the GiGi Mini Pro Waxing Kit. I won't lie, there is a little bit of a learning curve, and as I said above, it's uncomfortable, but after you treat it, the area is smooth as the proverbial baby's butt. And the great thing about it is, it takes 2-4 WEEKS for the hair to grow back--and it grows back thinner and finer. I've been doing it for more than 30 years, and prefer it to anything else.

It's alright. Totally normal. I'm a teenage girl and I actually have one too. *mustache buddies* ;) its more like peach fuzz and I know multiple girls at my school that have them as well. Some show up more prominent then others (mine does because I have a lighter complexion and black hair). At the age we are at now, we are very nervous about what people see and think about us. I bet no one has even noticed ur peach fuzz and it's just getting to you. If it really IS a bother, i say wax it. Hope this helped!!!
