    My two cents is...do upper lips only if you have a noticable hairline. Otherwise, don't bother or you will get even more hair growth if you start to remove them.

    Waxing on face is a big no no as it streches your skin and make it loose. Eventually over time your face develops more lines and wrikles along with the skin looking older as it has lost its elasticity.

    You can do threading but it is a little painful and sometimes leads to redness and bumps. You can use some ice after you are done or apply some cream.

    Even i had the same dilemma, for me it is little noticable,upper lips looks little darker than rest of the face but i bleach once ina while, and use home made face packs etc, so it is not very noticable, little better than before. so i suggest dont do both.

    I use almond paste made with milk, which is superb to lighten the skin and give a glow. i used it cont for 3 months and got great results.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi all
    As iam a beautician in bay area iam running parlour in my house i would recommand threading is good for skin. hair growth will be slow. And skin it won't become hard &rough.I would threading is best. I agree it hurt. but the result will be good.

    Bye

    Hi charu,
    Dry grind little almonds, add 1 tsp milk or as much u want to make a thick paste and apply on ur face. you can also soak the almonds and grind but when we grind few almonds it wont grind to a fine paste, so i dry grind and store in fridge. use little whenever i want. but continuos use of almonds gives good results.

    if ur skin is oily then i am not sure of the result. mine is extremely dry and but oily in Tzone. so this works well.
    Almond is a good for skin and also a good scrub, exfoliates. milk is a cleanser.
