I'm blessed that the terminal hair on my arms is not very heavy. It's there, but it's very light. I wonder if the whole vellus/terminal hair thing explains why so many brunettes (like me) have pseudo mustaches?
I have to shave every so often to keep the shadow from showing up on my upper lip. It's kind of embarrassing. I know people who use hair removal cream and wax, but I just shave it. It doesn't make it any thicker, contrary to popular belief, and it's a lot cheaper. Also, I think I’m sensitive to the hair removal cream. Makes my skin burn a little.
