18, sparse facial hair and no chest hair.  Weird?

It's you: Many, maybe most, women prefer a naturally smooth, light-bearded man or a shaved-chest nowadays. Five percent of men never grow chest hair (paul newman had none), and these men almost never go bald either.

I want a bit of beard I have only sparse facial hair what can I do..?

Check T level: You don't say how old you are; if you are in your teens, your beard may simply not have emerged as yet. If you are older, have your doctor check your testosterone level to be sure it is normal. If it is, you are probably just one of those people with sparse facial hair, and there's nothing to be done about it. At least not yet. ...Read more

Treatment for less facial hair and though hair appeared on other private parts but not developed fully?

Smooth man?: If i understand your question correctly, you are not satisfied with your beard and would like a thicker growth and more pubic & body hair.
