Facial Hair: Eflornithine (vaniqua) is used to slow the growth of unwanted hair on the face in women, usually around the lips or under the chin.

Some men develop robust growth as early as their teen years; some men never achieve a full beard. Your ethnic background and genetic propensity determine your likelihood of growing facial hair. There are no accepted medications to speed or increase facial hair growth.

Does lifting weights increase facial hair growth?

Does lifting weights increase facial hair growth?

No: I can't think of any reason that lifting weights would increase hair growth unless Anabolic steroids or testosterone was being used. There are no known hormonal changes with exercise that would explain hair growth in men. In women, aerobic exercise decreases estrogen, so male hormones become more dominant and one could see facial hair & acne increase. This is an increasing problem in women.

Is there a link between coffee and facial hair growth?

No: This is one more silly myth that has somehow gotten started. Becoming a man is difficult enough without this stuff. Your beard thickness / body hair abundance /tendency to hair loss later is genetically programmed. Junior -- don't worry about the coffee or the beard. Some women prefer more, others less, most women simply like you for who you are.
