If you wear a lot of winter clothes, it won’t have any effect, but in the summer, wearing short sleeves, shorts, skirts, body hair exposed, it’s really embarrassing.

Is it normal to have a lot of body hair?

It is believed that most women find body hair to be a burden and hence they regularly undergo hair removal. In fact, most cases of excessive body hair in women are normal, but a small percentage may have health problems. So what exactly are the causes of excessive body hair?

Why is it so hairy? Top 2 reasons why women have a lot of body hair

Physiological factors: genetic & hormonal changes

Body hair has a lot to do with genetics. If your parents were hairy people, it’s very likely that you were born with a lot of body hair. Of course, the body hair gene also has a tendency to be inherited from one generation to the next.

In addition, it is influenced by a number of factors such as race, gender, age and hormone levels.

For example, Caucasians will have more hair than yellow and black people, mainly because of the geographical location.

Another example is that men have more body hair than women. This is related to the amount of androgen secretion, the body of androgen more people, a reflection of the body hair more. However, women mainly have slightly more hair on their limbs and do not show any signs of masculinity.

These physiological factors cause hirsute, androgenic hormones so much more than others, and does not cause harm to health.

Pathological factors: hirsutism & endocrine disorders

  1. Hirsutism

Hirsutism is the excessive growth, coarsening and darkening of hair in androgen-dependent areas of a woman’s body. When there is an excess of androgen in a woman’s body, it causes the hair on her body to grow too long and thick, resulting in hirsutism.

Hirsutism can be both physiological and pathological. The pathological ones include adrenal hirsutism, central hirsutism, ovarian hirsutism, drug-induced hirsutism, idiopathic hirsutism, and many others.

How to determine if it is hairy or hirsutism?

Hirsutism, caused by genetic factors, is just an increase in body hair, but not masculine manifestations, this is just a little more hair than others, not a disease, no treatment is needed.

If a woman’s hair grows like a boy’s, such as thick hair around the belly button, chest, inner thighs or around the lips, or if her eyebrows get thicker and thicker, this is not normal, but a sign of hormonal imbalance. This is a manifestation of hormonal imbalance. Excessive male hormones in the female body is not a good thing, as it will affect normal ovulation and the regularity of menstruation, which should be taken seriously.

  1. Endocrine imbalance

There are 3 causes of hormonal imbalance, down to 3.

Bad lifestyle habits lead to it: for example, staying up late, eating spicy and spicy food, etc., these poor lifestyle and dietary habits can also lead to hormonal imbalance.

Polycystic ovary syndrome: if the problem is hirsute and accompanied by menstrual irregularities, it can point to one disease – polycystic ovary syndrome. Polycystic ovary syndrome, a common condition in women of childbearing age and the most common female endocrine disorder, is caused by hormonal and metabolic abnormalities, and one of the clinical manifestations is hirsutism. In particular, masculine tendency hair grows on the calves, arms, mid-abdominal line, vulva and anus. However, whenever you have any of these problems, you should seek medical attention immediately. Because if this disease is not treated, it will continue to worsen. Don’t wait until you have a tumor on your ovaries to realize the seriousness of the problem.

Hormonal effects: taking some hormonal drugs can also lead to hormonal imbalance. Especially if you take drugs that contain androgenic hormones, androgenic hormones can’t be controlled as much as you want.

Do I need to remove a lot of body hair? What is the best way to remove hair?

Many women who have problems with hirsute hair choose to shave or wax. It’s up to you to decide whether you want to shave your body hair or not. In fact, in the editor’s opinion, there is no need to wax when it does not affect your appearance, because sometimes waxing can create other health problems instead.

And if you think the hair looks obtrusive, and know that your hairiness is physiological rather than pathological, it’s better to take it off. However, I would like to remind you that all kinds of hair removal methods have their drawbacks, so let’s take them into consideration and choose a method.

Directly plucked: one of the drawbacks is that it hurts, the second is easy to cause inflammation of the hair follicle. If hair follicle inflammation is not resolved in time, it may also grow a small pustule out.

Shaving with a knife: people always miss the time, in case the knife did not hold steady, it is easy to scrape the skin, the formation of scars, so that the skin keratinization rough, and will be the more scraped, the more hair Oh.

The more you shave, the more hair you will have. There is no shortage of inferior hair removal creams on the market, some of which contain chemicals that can cause skin irritation and risk pigmentation.

Laser hair removal: this method is done with the help of specialized equipment, so first of all it is expensive. It’s not suitable for every girl, as it is suitable for women with lighter skin tone and darker, coarser hair.
