I get asked alot about why women seem to sprout hair in odd places as we get older.
The term to describe increased and unwanted facial hair in post menopausal women is hirsutism. This means hair growing in the same way as male pattern hair growth (moustache, beard or growing thicker hair on limbs). Women who experience hirsutism are sensitive to small amounts of hormone, according to the Bristish Association of Dermatologists. These women have hair that grows in thicker and faster than normal in response to hormones.
I have a few thick rogue hairs on my chin …..i just pluck them out!! If they get worse then I may have to reassess the situation!!
