Peach Fuzz
I' m female and i' ve always had a problem with hair. I have hair on my tummy which I call peach fuzz because it' s very fine but it' s so embarrassing as it' s visible in daylight. I definitely won' t shave it cos that will just grow thicker and what causes hair on breasts. I have fine hair on my breasts to which I pluck out. Things like this are such a hassle and being a woman you want to feel smooth all over. What can I do?

Dear Peachy
Waxing it regularly will make the growth less and keep for at least 6 weeks in between. If you have abnormal facial hair too and irregular periods you could be suffering from hormonal imbalance and your doctor can test this with blood tests.
