I used to bleach in high school, then I started to use the wax strips at home and pluck in between. Yeah, those didn't work too well, but it was cost effective. I'd occasionally get a wax if I had some extra money. I also have this really embarrassing problem. Even if I waxed, there's still like, a shadow above my lip or the skin is just darker or maybe the hair follicle? I don't know, but it gives the mustache look even though there's no hair it makes me really self conscious and I can't help think that it's the reason I haven't had any experience with guys. What can I do? Anyways, I'd love to hear what you guys do to deal with this problem.
