You are going to have to experiment with razors until you find the perfect one for you. Ask your friends for
recommendations. I recently started sampling a variety and was amazed how different each of them feels. Once you find the one you love, change the blades often!
The most popular alternative to shaving, waxing, will keep your legs smooth for six to
eight weeks and cost between $40-70 for a full leg and bikini treatment. In order to get the best bang for your buck, do not wax until you have a hair growth of at least two weeks but
bear in mind that after a growth of four weeks or more, pain factor doubles. Resist the urge to apply a moisturizer for 24 hours after a waxing: it is likely to clog the pores and cause
irritation. Finally, give the area a good rub with a loofah sponge everyday to prevent ingrown hairs. Will it hurt? You betcha! Whoever said "beauty is pain," probably just had molten paraffin
ripped from their legs. Are you taking any medication? Remember, the precautions on the bottle apply to the entire body and that includes your skin. Anyone taking retinals (like Retin-A) or corticosteriods (such as hydrocortisones) needs to wait six months after
stopping the medication as these drugs all carry the side effect of thinning the skin. Better safe than sorry: inform your aesthetician about any medications you are taking.
