I feel your pain! Now that I’ve properly resolved to maintain my feminine traits, I have committed to 6-weekly professional full body waxing sessions. It’s the only way I’ve found to increase the time spent smooth, which I love so much. Shaving and hair removal creams are so short term in results (although I do love the act of shaving my legs and bikini line!).
Waxing itself is a pleasure/pain activity that I also personally enjoy, but may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
Try it all and see what works best!
