Don't shave, don't need to. Been using Epilady on my legs since I was 16 years old. Wax the other areas by myself. I have been blessed with fine, sparse and light colored body hair so it's not a big task. I've never had any type of facial hair aside from my eyebrows. Are brows considered facial hair?

I only shower, hardly ever bathe - I like it that way.

Just got done shaving my legs and pits in the shower a few moments ago. I hate it but as long as you dont wait too long in between its not a big problem. Added bonus of looking and feeling better plus all of my clothes feeling a LOT nicer afterward.

I hate it too. Mostly because I'm lazy and it takes time. What's worse is that I can't even let my facial hair grow out because it's still too patchy at 25 years old.

Down there isn't fun either. It's best to just stay on top of it by doing it every few days. Even then, navigating around the boys isn't pleasant. Does anyone have any suggestions/products for down there? I've nicked my scr0tum (yes, that is a censored word here) one too many times going with a standard beard trimmer and I won't do it with a razor.

Coochy Cream is a wonderful product. However you must use a razor. Patience (and a steady hand) is a virtue.

I have been blessed with a very dark, thick, abundant head of hair. Unfortunately, that carries through to the rest of my body. I can't go one day without shaving my legs in the summer since most of my wardrobe is skirts and dresses - even by the end of the day, if I have a date, I really need to shave my legs again because they are stubbly. I made the mistake of shaving my arms in high school and it's almost a vicious cycle - I have always had very thick, dark hair on my arms and now they grow back in straight up.

I've also had to tweeze my chin and eyebrows every day since I was 16.

Nature or genes blessed me with lots of very straight hair on my head and a few strays on my body - tweezers!

I love showering though, and have a long history of spending too much time in the shower (ask anyone who has stayed over ). Nothing beats a relaxing cool shower after those rare summer days when its properly hot outside.
Your facial hair must be pretty thick after a week.

1. Yes, obviously, but only on the condition that I would permanently no longer have any hair at all in these areas.

2. No.

3. Well, I think that I might have gone for over a year without shaving back when I was a young teenager, specifically between the period when I first began growing hair in these places and when I first began shaving.

I don't mind it one bit. It's just part of my daily bath. I never shower because I hate shaving in the shower. I can't stand stubble, even in the winter.
