Facial Hair FAQ

What if I cut my face while shaving?

It's normal to cut or nick your face from time to time.

If you cut your face every time you shave, though, you are probably using too much pressure. Or it may be time to change your blade.

When you cut yourself while shaving, use a clean tissue or cloth and apply direct pressure to stop the bleeding.

Can a teen grow a beard?

Yes. But you may have to be patient if you want to grow one. Depending on how thick your facial hair is, it could take up to two or three months before a beard grows in fully.
