I haaate having body hair. It annoys me to no end. But I can’t shave. Well, I can, but so much goes wrong.
The main problem is my legs. I can shave my arms, armpits, even my pubes (:o) without any irritation. Sometimes it burns after I shave that last area, and there’s sometimes redness and bumps but usually it’s ok. I don’t plan on being naked infront of anyone anytime soon anyway. For now I’m just concerned about my legs.
For some reason, the first time I shave my legs, it goes well. I never get cuts when I shave it after letting it grow out. But, the problem is after, I have abunch of black dots all over my shins, and my thighs have this…holes…I guess they’re my pores. From further away, it looks like abunch of small pinkish circles underneath my skin on my thighs.
Then there’s the second problem. I’ve tried shaving everyday, and I’ve tried waiting a week and then shaving, but the result is the same. The second time time I shave, I get so many cuts. I don’t know how, I’m as gentle and slow as I can be, I let the shaving cream set for about 1-2 minutes, I soak in a hot bath before, but nothing I’ve tried works. I use extra sensitive shaving cream, and that doesn’t help either. Then the cuts start itching like crazy, and I start getting redness and bumps, even if I don’t scratch.
I’ve also tried waxing, didn’t do jack. It only made my hairs shorter and provoked the redness on my pores. I tried nair and veet, didn’t work. Well, nair worked wonderfully on my arms and armpits. But Veet didn’t do anything to my legs and Nair made them itch so badly I almost started crying and had to jump in a bath of cold water. I first tried leaving it on for about 3 minutes then tried the full 10. No difference.
I don’t have the money for laser and electrolosys. I haven’t tried professional waxing but I don’t have the money for that either and I’m a little self-conscious about letting someone else do it.
Please, someone help me, I’m sick of wearing pants all the time, even during the summer. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" /> I want to wear shorts and skirts like when I was a kid, someone has to have an answer to this. I can’t be I’m the only person with this problem, there has to be someone else.
