Remarks:

1. 「」 is not a common kanji. So normally にきび is written in Hiragana or sometimes in Katakana.

2. 「」 means mustache; 「」 means beard; 「」 means sideburns. Generally, 「髭」 is used. But actually, as you can see, these Kanji are difficult to write, so even the Japanese people usually just write it in Hiragana.
