I've noticed recently that my arms are fuzzier than normal and upon inspection of my face, I have this light peach fuzz around my jaw, chin and up to ears. It doesn't hurt if I pull it out either.

I took some photos of my back, and I think there are early signs this peach fuzz is growing there too.

My bmi is 17, so I can't quite believe I'd get it at this bmi.

How do I get rid of it? And will it become more noticeable in future if I leave it?

i shave mine, but i def recommend waxing it because it’s safer and more efficient. it’s usually hardly noticeable since it blends with the color of your skin. i have darker skin but i didn’t even notice mine for a while

I think it can happen at any BMI if you've been messing up your body long enough. Mine is higher than yours and I'm starting to get it on my face, despite it being summer where I live.

In my experience, it doest necessarily get more noticeable if you leave it, and maintain your CW, but if you keep losing, it may grow on other parts of your body too. And you could try to shave or wax it but it only really goes away if you gain some weight sadly.
But this is just what I've experienced in the past, maybe other users can tell you differently

I have a high BMI and lost so much weight in such a rapid and extreme way that new fuzz became very noticeable on my body. It's definitely not just for people who are underweight because I started getting it at BMI 23.

i don’t have it anymore but i did when i got to around 14.1. i went manic and gained accidentally afterwards and lost it all, and it wasn’t until it was gone that i realized how bad it had actually been.

it’s not super noticeable from afar or if you don’t know what you’re looking for, but god it’s like fur. fairly thick, even though it’s quite fine. feels weird.



i want to commit, restricting is a compromise at this point.
