It is a bit difficult to get rid of facial hair completely but there are methods by which you can make them fade or lighten and appear less conspicuous.
Darkening of your skin is due to continuous bleaching. Bleaches contain hydrogen peroxide which if used in combination with other chemical products can cause irritation and darkening.
Shaving is also not a very advisable solution as it will increase the formation of hair further and has to be done continuously. Since you are still very young, it is not a practical option.
My suggestion to you would be to try out these remedies. Lime juice is an excellent natural bleaching agent and hence is an active ingredient in the following mixtures:
Add about 6 teaspoons of sugar and two teaspoons of fresh lime juice to a glass of water. Mix well and apply on the face and use a generous quantity where hair is more. Keep it on for about 15 minutes or till it dries. Wash with cold water and scrub your face well. Granules of sugar will gently exfoliate your skin and loosen the hair. Repeat this at least once a week.
Make a paste of gram flour by adding water and two teaspoons of lemon juice. Apply this paste on your face and leave it to dry for about thirty minutes. Scrub off the pack using cold water. This is also a good and natural way to get rid of facial hair.
Another face mask can be prepared by mixing 2 teaspoons of lemon juice with 8 teaspoons of honey. Apply it on your face and rinse with cold water after about 20 minutes. You can do this twice in a week.
Mash a ripe banana and add some oatmeal to it. Apply this mixture in circular movements on your face. Scrub it after about 15 minutes. This also acts as a very good exfoliating mask.
Just remember one thing that after you remove any facial mask, scrub your face with a soft towel while it is still wet. Do not forget to apply some moisturizer or olive oil after this.
Natural remedies may take some time in showing results but will not harm your skin and will in fact make it lighter and softer in appearance.
Do not loose your confidence. The more you think about your facial hair, they will become more conspicuous.

Have started using this personally and its working for me.
Mix 1 egg white with 1 tsp sugar and half tsp corn flour. Blend the mixture thoroughly, till it forms a sticky paste. Apply it on your face and let it dry. Thereafter, peel it off gently. Apply 3-4 times a week.
Hope this helps and if it works let me know the results.

Hair on face is a common problem and may be due to hormonal reasons.But do not feel stressed because of it and rather work on it patiently.Do not resort to shaving in any condition since it will only promote hair growth and just after a day of shaving you will see the hair reappearing.The key is patience. Some tips for hair removal are:
1.Apply a mixture of gram flour or wheat flour [with husk],curd and the white of an egg on your face and leave for 30 minutes.Remove the layer by scrubbing with a wet towel.
2.Apply lemon juice with cucumber juice to lighten the thin hairs since lemon act as a natural bleach and honey is a natural moisturiser.

Home remedies work in case of thin hairs. You have mentioned that you have coarse and thick hairs. Laser Treatment is best for such hairs as the result is 80-90%. But since you cannot afford laser treatment, the second best option would be waxing.
You can wax your face in a good and hygienic parlor in case you do not know how to wax by yourself.
Post-waxing you might see some acnes on your face. For that rub ice cubes on your face after waxing. Also apply a paste of gram flour, turmeric powder, multani mitti with rose water. Cool this mixture in fridge for 5-10 minutes before applying.
Avoid using oils like castor oil/olive oil/almond oil for any massage on your face as this oils are known for inducing hair growth

Applying the turmeric is the best way to remove the hair in the face. Turmeric is a very powerful natural element that removes hair in any place. Apply the turmeric can be the easy method and you can apply the turmeric for nearly 48 days so that you can remove hair from your face.
The next option is using of turmeric along with some other components. But when you choose the turmeric you better go for the pure turmeric that is got naturally dont apply any cosmetic along with that. Take turmeric in a cup and along with that you add a very little salt. Very very very little salt. And next is the important thing. If you go near a coconut tree you will get some small coconuts. Very small coconuts. Take that and rub it in rough surface and you will get some extracts. Add that stuff along with the turmeric that you have taken in the cup. Add some water into it and mix it well. Now this small coconut creates some roughness in your skin so it is good that you add some coconut oil to the extract that you have taken. In this combination the constituent of the turmeric should be more than the small coconut paste. Then apply everything in your face and wait for nearly one hour. After that do not wash your face. Use a cloth and remove the paste from your face and wait for some more hours and after that wash your face and you will get some freshness. If you continue this for 48 days then you will get good solution for the hair fall from the face. And during this thing do not use any razer or something else to remove the hair from your face. You can use scissors.
This treatment can be used to apply in wounds also. If you get hurt somewhere or if you fall down and the outer skin is damaged then you can use this same paste. But when you are using this for the wound you should all little more salt to the paste and the coconut paste should be more than the turmeric paste. If you use this for wound then There will be a great result that you can see in few days. How deep the wound may be this will be a good solution for that.
Caution: You should not add more salt to the combination. Only little should be added. If you add more then there are consequences that your skin will shrink and you will feel some heat sensation when you apply it.
