Here's how to wax your facial hair:

  1. Ensure your facial hair is at least 1/4 inch long for optimal results.
  2. Apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of hair growth.
  3. Place a wax strip over the applied wax and press it firmly.
  4. Hold the skin taut and quickly pull off the wax strip in the opposite direction of hair growth.
  5. Apply a soothing lotion or aloe vera gel to calm the skin.
