I'm taking saw palmetto and am drinking spearmint tea (as i type this, even) and recently I've noticed a slowing down in the facial hair. I am so excited! I'm also taking an adrenal support supplement for my adrenals/elevated dhea levels...so i'm not exactly sure what is working--i suspect the saw palmetto, but it could be the synergy of all three (plus the other supplements i'm taking).
since i've been taking my supplements, about 6 weeks or so, i've felt so much better. more energy. less anxiety. my period last month was the easiest, least painful cycle i've had in years. and now, the "beard" is slowing down...it's still there, and i'm still plucking, but i'm noticing slower growth, which means less plucking!
i know that other ladies on this site have had a lot of luck slowing down the facial hair by reducing or eliminating sugar from their diets...for some, sugar seems to be a real catalyst for hair growth.
