Stubborn chin hair
I am very embarassed about stubborn chin and upper lip hair. Some are white and some are black. I started off pulling it out with a tweezer but it has now become too much. It feels to me as if I am growing a beard. I am 56 year of age. Please help, laser treatment is too expensive, what can I do?

Unfortunately hormones change at this age and one of the things thta happens is the hair growth. I would suggest some or other form of cosmetic treatment - creams or electrolysis.
