Hormones: Certain birth control pills with high hormone contents can cause unwanted facial hair growth. As can various hormone disorders. Sometimes it happens for no known reason, when everything is "normal." let your family doctor or gynecologist rule out the treatable causes.

Nothing: Unless you suffer from hypogonadism with a very low testosterone then there is nothing to promote facial hair growth. Now if you do have hypogonadism see an endocrinologist, they can start you on testosterone replacement and in a few months you will see facial hair growth.

Basically no: Whether you're male or female. One exception -- obesity and lack of exercise can exacerbate some (not all) of the hormonal problems that may cause this in a young woman.

You really can't: Some men, especially those of us who are naturally smooth, simply won't be able to grow a thick beard. There's nothing you can do about this, many (most?) women prefer it, and you are unlikely to become bald as you get older. The one thing over which you have total control is your level of fitness, which is 95% of looks for a man. Best wishes.
