Re: removing facial hair

Well before I go into getting rid of the hair let me suggest that when shooting women there is a few things you can do. A. if this is a model type shoot give them a list of things that need to be done before the shoot including waxing/removing body hair. Don't tell them straight out you have a 5 o'clock shadow or a mustache but you can tell in a nice way that body hair is a pain and to remove it before hand is much easier then photoshoping it off.

But you have already shot the photo so what I suggest.

As stated above the dust and scratches filter could work.

Dust and Scratches Radius 16 Threshold 13
with a highpass filter set to overlay

However, the loss of detail may be an issue. you could also try the more tedious and overly boring healing brush and remove the hairs.

Either way will work but be careful because too much softening will start to look fake.
