Girls Hairy Arms Dear BeingGirl Experts, I have very dark hair on my arms, and when I wear short-sleeved shirts I am always made fun of cause they say I have hairy arms. Is it okay to shave the hair on my arms? Katey --- Dear Katey, The dark hair on your arms can be lightened with facial hair bleach. Facial hair bleach is available at a drugstore and can be used for arm hair. This will make the dark hair much less noticeable. Make sure you read the directions carefully before using the facial hair bleach. When your peers make comments, they are showing their insecurity (lack of confidence). Not letting them see what they have said is bothering you works to your advantage. They will move on when you shrug it off. Remembering how you don't like this type of comment when you are interacting with your friends will help you be a better friend. Everyone has insecurities. When someone points this out it bothers us. When you choose to comment make sure it is positive, and if you hear a negative comment made to someone counterbalance it with something positive.
