What do you do with your legs between waxings in summer?
After a lifetime of shaving, I got into a good waxing routine this winter and my leg hair is genuinely lighter. However, my legs are gross at the moment. I have waxing every 4 weeks and I am 2 weeks in. There is patchy hair and they are super dry. There is NO WAY I could get them out. It's such a lovely evening, I want to put on a comfy dress and go for a little walk.
But I don't really want to shave...I sense this is going to be a recurring theme this year. What do you all do during the summer?
I find it much less painful than waxing. I do my legs about once a week, and the epilator works on very short hairs. I find the hairs grow back slowly, so when I epilate there are only a few hairs here and there, so it's not too painful.
What do I do with my legs in the winter? First I put the left one in. Then out. Then in. Then out. Then shake it all about. A bit of hokey cokeying. Repeat with right leg. This keeps em in good working order. I shave in the summer.
