I have an annoying "mustache shadow" How can I remove it?

I always get a close shave with my safety razor, but I get that "mustache shadow" all the time. The hair on my mustache is always stubborn to remove itself and when I do get a good shave I still have the mustache shadow growing. Are there any remedies to solve this problem other than lazor hair removal? I was thinking of a good wax product?

I take it your hair is dark...a LASER or electrolysis treatment would definitely do it, but would remove the hair.

 

What if you want to grow facial hair, later on?

 

Wax would remove the hair, but rips the follicle out, painfully from what I've heard.  Have you tried bleach?  I know women often bleach their mustaches, if they're noticeable.

 

Or, you could do the opposite.  Accept that men have hair on our faces, and it's a natural part of our lives.  Men without hair, even a shadow, tend to look funny.

I shave with the grain and then I shave up against the grain. Works well for me.

Lather up more than once and go over the area at least twice for the closest shave. Be sure to put aftershave on because two passes could cause some razor burn.

Straight razors are also an option here.

I second D.J. I use a straight, and I don't know of any other way to effectively remove all the fuzz under your nose and above your lip. Granted, using a straight needs more control, but the trade-off is that you *get* more control in return. You can move a straight-blade to places that a D.E. razor and a cartridge-razor can't reach. And that will improve the quality of your shave. And remove the 'shadow'. 

I just don't understand the problem.  Having hair on the face would be a problem if you were a she, but for a he, it's expected.  I'd as likely expect a man to complain that his shoulders are too broad and he's too muscular, and is there anything he can do about being 6 feet tall.

PROUD ETHNIC KEKISTANIS

I have started this thread to discuss the centuries of suffering and oppression my proud Kekistani brethren have had to endure at the hands of foul normies.  Where are my fellow Kekistanis and what are you doing in support of the Meme Jihad?See More
