shave makes hair and skin rough if you shave daily the hair will be soft for two days but hardens by growth if you dont shave and it also activates and stimulates the folicle area and pores in skin so skin kind of hardens even if you use lotions etc. Trim for best with short blades and if possible shave once a month or so .
Hijra community used to pluck hair with tweezers but they are painful and aren't permanent .
Women of india used to prefer turmeric to face some say it can cause skin softness and hair to fall and blah blah( not sure)
Permanent hair removal you can try some good skin clinic for hair removal by laser or electrolysis and they cost in thousands ( heard it was 7k for any type in pune )
Each method has its own benefits.
Electrolysis is permanent and less painful and laser is less( not sure) you need to trim hair for both .
Try them first on some body parts and the doc will do if he is a good doc. ( Beware quarks will leave scars) .
Hrt may cause slow growth some natural anti hair growth creams and lab creams are available . But uncertain of their effect as skins differ for each person. Try some googling i hope you do know some women have facial hairs ( mild ) .
