I used to wax. Can you believe that? I used to wax everything. Myself. I’m cheap like that. I reused my wax too. Yes, you can do that if you get the kind that doesn’t need strips, like Zip wax (that’s the kind that works best anyhow). It took all day, but I didn’t have to do it again for a month. My legs (and various other body parts) were smooth as a baby’s butt for three weeks, and when the hair finally did make an appearance again, it was as soft, fine and blond as baby hair.
Now that I’m a mom, I no longer have time to lay out an entire day once a month to dedicate to hair removal. In the beginning, I could hardly find five minutes a day to shave. I spent the first half of my momhood very hairy indeed (what does it matter anyhow? I’m not dating anyone, and it was winter!). Now I’ve found the time.
As part of my son’s bedtime routine, he takes a bath. While he is playing with his plastic fish and splashing, I throw my feet in the tub, grab my razor, and real quick shave. My legs still aren’t ever as smooth as they are when they are freshly waxed, but at least I’m not running around looking like some auburn Sasquatch anymore.
Also, if I can squeeze it in, I do a sugar scrub on my feet. It feels awesome, and I deserve it. You do too! Of course, I make my own sugar scrub.
