      HI Krissy My wife makes sugar wax and lets me use some it works pretty well on my chest belly and private areas.

      Its not as strong as wax strips and takes more work but it cleans up easier.

      As of late I have tried wax strips on my legs as  My friend gets brazillian body waxes regularly and swears by them.

      So I thought I would try doing it myself with wax strips.

      The jury is still out on these.

      But waxing is better I feel although painful .

      Hugs Patty

      I have a similar problem, that I get ingrowing hairs and then slightly unsightly pumps which then get sore, especially around the upper thigh, where it rubs on my jeans and then gets slightly irritated. I think I am going to have to purchase and epilator 😕

      Oh my gosh…I’m smooth all over except for my arms which are buzzed to 1/4” or so. But, I’m lucky to have blond (and gray!) body hair, so it’s easy to stay buzzed most places and shaved where it counts.  Even if married, manscaping is all the rage so nobody thinks anything about a man with a smooth body…well, I might think about that😉

      A tip??? I am not sure but in my case I found shaving often (every few days) has worked well.

      I use a variety of devices but my most used is a nice Braun shaver. It works really well at Up-keep but not good at all if the hairs are longer. Besides this I use a 3 blade and 5 blade razors and rotate sections each day. Might do arm’s and chest today, legs tomorrow, back the next etc.

      I did get bumps for a while but never now.

      Hi

      I’m doing Laser treatments at the moment as the salon had a great $99 special (The Cosmetic Clinic) for full legs, Brazilian and armpits! Not bad, eh? Sorry but that’s New Zealand only… I think…
      Doubtless, there are salons who offer the same but laser is way better than IPL as there is no regrowth after about six sessions.

      Smooth as silk! xx Polly

      I’ve had my legs waxed twice, and that was nice. I’m learning that shaving my legs in the shower with plain old soap works quite nicely. For me every other day works just fine.

      Sadly I’ve never been in a position to shave my body hair and one of the main reasons Cheryl hasn’t ever progressed. As I’ve got older my body hair has increased, I hate it 🤢and would so much prefer to be smooth. I have often thought of how I would do this… so I go get a full body wax at a beauty specialist but this would be too awkward, hair removal cream would probably be my method of choice but, my wife once removed my back hair using this (for a laugh) and I came out in a rash… what did I miss?

      Now, to sign off… how does everyone actually do their back especially if you are on your own, always keen to know for when I can do my own?

      Hi Krissy

      Have you tried waxing

      I’ve had my legs waxed at a salon a couple of times.

      Feels lovely and smooth after and no ingrowing hairs. the hair comes back very soft

      Hi Krissy,

      To keep myself smooth and soft, I start with a hot bath and shave in the tub using Dove and a good multi-blade women’s shaver. I found it is important to shave in the same direction as the hair naturally lays. Although it is work, I shave nearly every day. I also moisturize after toweling off and at least twice more during the day. I am smooth all over and after a few weeks any irritation seemed to stop. At first, it would take me an hour to completely shave what needed to be shorn, but now I can get it done in half the time. Hope this helps.

      Best advice I can give you is get laser or IPL. It’s not cheap, but it lasts a long time and will leave your skin baby smooth. Shaving, epilating, and depilatory cremes tend to irritate your skin…and you have to do it often.

        IPL’s are fairly cheap. Got mine for $149 plus tax and shipping. it takes a while to cover all needed parts initially, but over time the parts needing re-application become smaller and the time goes down. They work best on darker hair, so for me with a lot of light (read grey) hair it is taking longer, but I am seeing the regrowth is slower and according to the instructions included, it should eventually stop for a much longer time. Some areas I am already seeing the growth has stopped or slowed dramatically. Eventually I should get to a point where once every few months will be enough. for now with the lighter hair it’s a couple of times a week for those more stubborn spots.

      I’ve tried a number of things as I have considerable hair all over, but shaving from the waste down while taking a bubble bath seems to work about as well as anything. It IS more difficult to reach some areas, and I have to be extremely careful in a very slippery tub, especially when getting out (not a pretty sight!). This discussion has helped me with some wonderful tried methods which I will have to try.

      Hi, any tips for Redheads. I’ve not been shaving my legs long, only the last few months. Mostly I get a good shave but last time I got a rash from hell, took 2 days to calm down even with Aveno and Vaseline creams applied in huge amounts. I tried Veet Sensitive Skin on my bikini but I find that it doesn’t remove the hair at the root for me but it snaps it of at about the 2mm from the skin. I have ordered WooWoo from Amazon as that has good reviews (it better be good for what it costs £9:95 for a 50ml bottle!) but I’d appreciate some tips for Reds if there are any here. Thanks.

      Freshly shaved legs are truly awesome.  Even man clothes feel better brushing against them – heresy I know, but true.  I don’t need to tell you how great skirts, dresses and hosiery feel against them.

      If only it would last!  Following day slip on a silky nightie. You can feel the just-emerging  stubble catching against the smooth material, like coarse sandpaper. It’s a worse sensation than having longer but soft leg hair!

        I had the same problem. Tried creams and after hives from one quit going that route. I now use three things. A 5 blade ‘Venus’ Razor (Walmart) for the underarms and to do once overs other areas, if needed. The primary option I start with is the ‘Flawless Legs” electric 4 headed razor. That seems to do a good job and gets almost all but the stubborn hair off everywhere other than my under arms. (it irritated the crap out of there because of the sensitive skin. bladed razor or IPL there). Lastly I just purchased and IPL and am had success with darker hair areas right away. The reviews say the lighter hair takes longer to go away and my experience bears that out. It’s slower to return but between the razor and Flawless I have gotten excellent results and I am starting to notice the returning light hair is much finer and more ladylike so the stubble is getting less and less. it’s just a longer haul with the stubborn male hair follicles. I anticipate they will eventually go away as the IPL promises, but for now I treat some ares every other day, (really stubborn facial hair) and other areas only if and as needed.

        I have the same problem Stephanie, I use a 5 blade razor from Aldi which works well. I get a smooth shave when using shaving gel & then moisturise with Dove. Just a shame it doesn’t stay smooth for long, but it’s a lovely feeling having silky smooth skin.

        ‘IPL’ Krissy…. if you have a light skin tone and dark hair, purchase an IPL. It will reduce hair growth… and when it does start to grow back, it’s much finer. At least that’s what I have experienced with my IPL.

        Gen… ❤

            IPL – Intense Pulsed Light.

            The light targets the hair follicle and ‘stuns’ it. Retarding hair growth considerably.

            There are different brands/models to choose from. Have a look on Amazon.

            I chose the Philips Lumea Prestige Bri956. Has all the bells and whistles… could have easily made do with a less expensive model. The Bri921 is best bang for the buck IMHO…

      Moisturizing is a must do after each bath, as for hair removal it depends on your skin type and the quantity or coarseness of your hair. Shaving, waxing, epilating, I’ve tried them all. I have an average amount of hair on my  face but my skin is too sensitive to shave more than every other day no matter which method I use. My pubic region has a slightly below average amount of hair/coarseness, waxing is my best option there, epilating caused more red bumps while doing a comparable job to the wax, shaving doesn’t last long enough. My chest has very little hair and its finer than most, while on my stomach its finer still. Epilating did not work well there because the hairs were too fine and most were not strong enough to pull the roots out with them causing them to regrow as quickly as shaving, so it’s wax from now on. My legs have even less hair than my torso and produced the same results with an epilator, my wife commented its almost not worth waxing, but I prefer that for obvious reasons. Hope this helps you.

      Shaving… I never do it in the shower. I sit in my high-back chair and rest my foot on a small stool to raise my leg up a tad. This way all my concentration is on the task at hand. No balancing act on slippery shower floors. This way I can control the razor better.

      For lubricant, I use Dove hair conditioner. Not once have I had razor burn/rash… and leaves my skin silky smooth. You don’t need much… ‘less is more’. Use ‘just enough’ to lightly coat your skin. To apply the conditioner, I use one of those tear-drop sponges normally used for makeup application.

      I have a glass jar filled with water to rinse the razor. As the razor gets clogged up, I clean it out frequently with a small nail brush. Each time the razor is rinsed, I wrap it in a small towel to dry it off… don’t like a wet razor handle.

      Usually shave in four sections… right lower leg, left lower leg, right upper… then left upper. Use the razor drying towel to wipe down the legs to clean up any remaining conditioner. Always follow up with the IPL.

      There we have it… Silky smooth legs. ❤❤❤

      Gen…

      If you have the means, laser hair removal is fabulous.  I too had the itching, burning after effects of shaving.  Drove me bananas.  After just a few treatments (head to toe) 95%+ of the hair is gone.  One thing on laser, though, beware the package deals.  If your skin tone and hair color are in your favour, you may not need all that many and be better off doing pay-as-you-go.

      Hi girl friend

      Ive tried always  and read alot, found using a ladies razor worked better for me as blades are at different angle to razors for face. Also use a moisturiser shaving cream instead of normal foam and always exfoluate before. Since doing this legs alot better, although i did buy a epilator as well (hurts) but has cut number of times i shave.

      I moisturiser after every shower and that has helpped a lot.

      Lucky partner is happy for me to do this and encourages it.

      Hope this helps you x

Also there is those hard to get at places too, so ive ordered a top of the range lady shaver that says on the box the closest and smoothest shave ever so ill keep on with my regime and hopefully get a Brazilian wax next month as like i said even when i was plain old chris id shave my whole body as think ive a phobia about body hair as i just dont like it and dont wan
