    I was wondering how other girls keep their legs hair free for long periods of time because I can't? I have really sensitive skin and have spots everytime I wax and epilate, don't even mention shaving. So I have to wait for the hair to grow long before I wax, when I get a boyfriend, will a guy mind this? Because I really can't do anything about it.
    Any tips girls???

    I used to bleed/get spots from it too, but after the first few waxes, my skin got used to having hair ripped from the follicle. Now the hair grows back thinner and I only have to wax them every three weeks.

    When they are in that 'in between' stage (stubbly), I wear tights.

    After you've waxed or epilated, rub on some baby oil (preferably with aloe vera extract to soothe the skin) - I guarantee it will make a big difference! Make sure you moisturise regularly too, dry legs are much more sensitive.

    Can you wax ear lobes?

    Honestly, I am totally serious here, it's becoming a problem for me. They are ridiculous, the downy hair on them catches the light in such an obvious manner, it's become rather embaressing. Do yougirls have any tips? I shaved them once, but I don't want stubbly ears, I imagine that would incite even more comments.

    No. If I was this wouldn't be a problem, I'd happily bare my hairy lobes along with nasal hair, ear hair and so on. It's almost requisite of the elderly, even the women. But as a 17 year old, well it's rather unbecoming.

    I used Nair hair removal cream , it is meant for sensitive skin and works great for me. Waxing makes my hair longer and thicker, or maybe it is just me :s:

    Your only option is waxing it as if waxing armpits.

    There's laser treatments, not sure if they do for that, going to cost you much and god knows about the side effects of such treatment.

    Hell yes, I would. Muff fluff is the only acceptable body hair on women. There was an Italian girl I used to fancy until she came in to class one day without a long-sleeved shirt on (which she had always worn previously) and her arms looked like they belonged on a black bear - I literally gagged and couldn't look at her again without feeling slightly nauseous. Leg hair is even worse.

    Be wary that ear skin is slimmer and more sensitive than say arms and legs skin, you need to do it carefully.

    I get really bad razor burn, my legs are super sensitive but I have to say I would NEVER have hairy legs when a boyfriend is around. I just feel very self conscious about it and unsexy. Noone likes women with hairy legs, do they? At least, I personally do not think women look good with any hair below their head.

    Shaving every day isn't necessary ofc, it depends on your hair growth though, mine is pretty bad due to hormone problems so I do know your pain... Make sure you never use a blunt razor, and using mens after shave palm is actually very helpful and soothing - just get an unscented one. Nivea have a good one.
