I’m starting to grow body hair—everywhere. What should I do with it?
Changes in your body and facial hair is another totally normal part of puberty. As Dr. Scott puts it, you’ve always had hair on your face and arms and legs and armpits. It just becomes different during puberty. It gets thicker and coarser and darker because of something called androgens—hormones your body releases at this stage of life. (Aaaargh hormones.) What you *do* with that new hair is totally up to you: you can leave it alone, or think about removing it. There’s no right answer. You do you.
