Dear Dish-It, I Have a Mustache!

Dear Dish-It,

I've started to grow underarm hair and mustache, and my mom thinks it's cute and I become really embarrassed. What do I do?

Dear PartyGirl,

I know that some of the things that happen to your bod right now can be embarrassing (like finding you have a lot of extra body hair), but the great thing about these embarrassing situations is that they are totally fixable. Moms aren't always the easiest peeps to talk to about these things, but I think if you let your mom know how you feel she will be more than willing to help you out. There are tons of options for dealing with unwanted body hair - bleaching, shaving, waxing, or even hair removal creams. Talk to your mom and you can decide together what's best for your situation. If you have an older sis, she might be able to help you out too. Just remember: we all have to deal with these things so you shouldn't let it bother you. Your mom will understand what you're going through, cuz believe it or not she was once going through puberty just like you are now! Good Luck!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Well to the people above, I shop at stores like Hollister, Forever 21, and H&M, but it's still a continuing problem because I have no way of telling if it's too kiddish.
