I think most of us girls start off shaving when we are teens, than dabble in the odd smelly hair removal cream application before we start thinking of better options such a waxing and epilating. That was the case for me anyhow, I am an avid epilator on my legs, and I would never dream of using any other method of hair removal apart from waxing on my bikini area. The only area I have shaved in years has been under my arms because I just find it so easy to do everyday,which bring me to the topic of this post. I think i'm a little obsessed when it comes to hair removal......
I can't handle having body hair. there, I 've said it . The slightest sight of fuzz sends me reaching for my epilator (Of course sometime I have no choice, like bikini waxing for example, you have to let the hair grow in order it wax it) and I have to make sure my legs, under arms and bikini area are hair free at all times. I'm not the most hairy person in the world, but i'm not one of those lucky women who can shave their legs once a week and can get away with it. I think in today's world, zero body hair is considered the ideal and that's the reason so many of us are obsessed with it. If you look at the older generation of women (Late 40's to 60's in my opinion) they always seem to be much more at ease with body hair, not minding a little bit of leg fuzz or under arm hair.........So i'm asking, when and why did be become obsessed with being smooth?
Is it just force of habit or is because I always feel much more sexy when i'm smooth, and I would never even thinking about letting my boyfriend touch me if I had body hair, despite the fact that I feel super comfortable with him and have been with him for almost 4 years, and to be honest I don't think he would even notice! at the moment i'm shaving all areas because i'm using an at home laser hair removal device that requires you to only shave, and I absolutely hate shaving!
So, is it just me who is obsessed or is it all of us? are men to blame? or is the constant quest for perfection that is to blame? Do tell!
