    Hey. I recently threaded my side burns (hair removal on girl) and now the hair is coming back and it looks bad but in addition, i can see teh pores from where the hair is coming from.

    Also, my main concern is teh spots im getting because of threading.. Ad on my cheeks i have visible pores? on my chin i have spots?
    I did not use to have these problem, i had very clearn skin about 2 months ago. but, slowly i've started to get spots, more and more.

    What is teh best way to reduce these spots and get rid of them completely? i dont want a spotty face when i reach university or visible pores.

    Also, do i just not thread my side burns anymore? shall i wait till they grow so i can bleach them?:/

    Thanks.

    Go to your GP. Acne is often hormonal (and if you've got sideburns which need removing too, this points further to a hormonal imbalance) and they can give you pills, creams etc which will work far better than anything you can buy in Superdrug.

    Best to see a doctor, even if it didnt work in the past. There are newer variants of drugs etc which could work now for you.

    If you want it cleared up fast, go see a doctor.

    Probably due to hormonal imbalance, go see a doc and they should give you something for it

    And question... Has somebody swapped the "E" and "H" on your keyboard by any chance?

    If you started getting them once you had threading done, then it's obviously that. Make sure you exfoliate (using a muslin cloth cleanser like the Soap and Glory one) so you don't get ingrowns that end up causing spots. Think about if it's worth getting spots over a few miniscule hairs on your face. Normally, after you've threaded an area 4-5 times you should stop getting break outs.

    After you've had your sideburns threaded, exfoliate to help prevent ingrown hairs. Itching may cause some marks as well so try not to do that. Cut your nails really short if you have to.

    Also, have you tried lemon juice facials? Basically mixing lemon juice with something (I can't remember what, ask your mum, it's an Indian thing :p:)

    It usually works for me although there are occasionally a few ingrown hairs but that's probably just me :p:

    I use this personally as my skin's too sensitive for abrasive scrubs. They also do pads if you prefer those. I know it's a bit expensive but it's worth it, imo

    If you want something cheaper, go for Superdrug or something, they've got a few good cheap ones.

    St Ives apricot scrub, works like a charm and then you smell like apricot
