There’s no denying that some ladies have more facial hair than others but is it okay to shave the hair on your face?
Some stars who were known for their beauty and flawless skin have done it in the past like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and even Cleopatra. Some women opt for this option because laser hair removal is expensive and painful while waxing is painful and can irritate your skin.
