I am AMAB and have shave my face every single day and it’s so exhausting because i have to stare at my face for so long, noticing all of my masculine features. I also shave everything from the neck down and it really makes me uncomfortable because every time, it’s a reminder that no matter what I do, the hair will always grow back in a day or two. How do you guys deal with this?

      Several of my friends on hormones have seen a great reduction in facial and body hair so, wait until after you start to decide on laser hair removal or electrolysis. It's VERY expensive.

      Electrolysis when you can save enough also look into beard cover makeup as well as face feminizing makeup and ffs

      I often wear a mask. If I shaved every day I'd break out. I suggest it op!

      You could try waxing, it would at least make it so it takes a bit long to grow back but the downside is you have to wait for it to grow back a bit before you'd be able to wax again. There's also color correcting makeup techniques that help hide stubble when it comes in

      my ex would always make it a really nice ritual with her aromatherapy diffuser, hot steam, and really pretty razors with fancy nice-smelling shaving cream :)

      try to turn shaving into a gender affirming experience. associate it w femininity (or androgyny if you prefer) instead of masculinity. especially if you shave your legs! i really like painting my nails but get dysphoric about it so i turned it around from "nail polish is feminine" to "yes baby blue nail polish is so masculine and manly" and it helped me a ton
