Potentially TMI

I epilate all of it - underarms, legs, and the intimate areas, big toes (no, I'm not a sasquatch) with the excpetion of the absolute most intimate skin that basically cannot be pulled taught without a professional on the case. That I shave. Not sure if the picture I'm painting is clear, so... I epilate the entire bikini triangle, but shave the "undercarriage."

I'm in my mid-twenties and I've done this since my late teens which means I basically have no hair left. I go over everywhere every 4-8 weeks and am good to go. Soooo much cheaper than shaving/waxing in the long run. Does it hurt to begin with? Oh, hell yeah. But do it a couple of times and it won't anymore. Worth it for me. (I know you didn't ask for a book, but just in case anyone else wants to know).

The link is just a description of what exactly epilation is as I get asked a lot.

I shave my underarms every few days. I rarely shave my legs in the winter since the hair isn't that noticeable and I wear pants most of the time anyway. In the sumemr time though, I do it every few days. And I go for the brazilian in the lower region. It's not to please a man or anything like that, which I'm often accused of. I just HATE having hair down there.

Full leg - every 2-3 days
Underarms - daily
Big toes and 2 nasty moles on my arm - whenever I remember to

And really, you've gotta love the google ads on the side of the screen that these key words kick up, heh.

Guy, cyclist.

Face- every other day

Chest and underarms- never shaved, but trim it down with a pair of clippers every 2 months- keeps thing under control.

Legs- Clipped or shaved during the summer for cycling- I do it because it makes it easier to keep clean- 5 hours of road riding and a whole lotta crap gets stuck in yer leg hairs- freshly oiled pea-gravel (ouch) numerous bugs (yuck) . 2 hours of mountain biking and you look like a sasquatch. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to tell when I'm getting sunburnt...

Undercarriage- clipped down every month or so to keep things well manicured and not crazy looking.

Shave lower legs every single night-upper legs every two-three days. Bikini area I wax once a month and shave the "undercarriage" about once every two weeks. Underarms can go about two weeks without noticing any growth. I too shave my toes when I feel they need it. I shave my upper lip every couple of days. I've done it since the 5th grade.I can do it in the shower with out a mirror at this point-
I've never told anyone. My fiance' thinks I had laser hair removal and that's why I never have any hair on my upper lip. What he doesn't know won't hurt him...

does anyone else shave that little bit between your eyebrows? it's so much easier than plucking. i pluck the rest for shape, but i just shave between.

I wax everywhere. I am very "clean" according to my boyfriend and I love that feeling. Jsisters is the best.

Shave uderarms-every to every other day
Shave legs-once per week in summer/unshaven in winter
Bikini line-wax myself every 2 months or so
Virginia-trim once per month or so

I'm lucky that I do not have to do anything to my eyebrows after the first two years of plucking them. And I leave the hair on my legs in the winter to keep me warm!
