Shaving face chol hamoed

Question:

I saw in your archives that a woman may tweeze her eyebrows on Chol Hamoed. Does that apply to removing hair from anywhere on the face?
What about shaving other parts of the body?
Thank you!

 

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

A woman may remove any hair from her body hands, or legs on chol hamoed. She may also remove any unwanted hair, not only from her eyebrows, but also from other parts of her face. The prohibition is only not to cut the hair of her head.
