Shave (“the situation”, as well).

Shave. I don’t have a “situation”. I was blessed with very little hair.

I prefer waxing. The only downside is that you have to let it grow out a bit before you can wax again, so I usually end up shaving.

wax wax wax. epilate in-between. and lots of exfoliating. it’s worth the pain.

Trim, trim, shave!

I would rather wax, but the effects don’t last long enough to make doing it worthwhile. Shave.

Shave. No reason it has to be painful.

Shave. I’ve done the wax and it ends up pulling skin to where I peel and shed for a week, blah. Laser is great but it’s more expensive than wax and it hurts exactly how you’d imagine a patch of skin would zapped with a laser.

I don’t do my legs, but I would say shave ;)

Don’t forget to trim too. Epilators sometimes come with shaver heads that you can use to trim with an attachment.

@Neizvestnaya try moisturising more- I moisturise daily and it stops that from happening. and yeah laser would be the ultimate if we were pain resistant.

Epilating is also a must for armpits, it grows back sooooo fine. Hurts more than anything at first but it’s no longer painful for me. I used to shave my armpits and it itched so much I looked like a monkey all the time. Haven’t shaved anything for about 3 years and I’m doing fine.

@ninahenry I tried that but the fumes were too much for me to do it on a regular basis.

I guess I have to mow!

@ninahenry
Tried that years ago but I think for some of us the wax just isn’t right. Tried all kinds and different salons but all with the same result. It’ll be back to the laser for me.
