You gotta love hair removal. It's the expensive and time consuming price of feeling like a Sphynx cat. I was thinking of my moments of failure earlier and had to share my frustration.
1. Forgetting to shave the other leg
Anyone else do this from time to time? It's always followed by the most disappointed sigh when you notice.
2. Razor burn
This one was a result of the first one for my thirteen year old self. It happened in the middle of summer when I had ten minutes to leave. Shaving out of the shower without any shaving cream led to some epic razor burn later that day. Next time, I'm either staying home or leaving with one yeti leg.
3. Hot shower + deodorant + shaving
This atrocity has been happening more lately and it drives me crazy. It takes a good week in the shower to get deodorant off, hot water will make it stick to you even more, and if your razor touches that mess rip.
4. Swelling and bruising after waxing
Are people aware swelling and bruising can occur after waxing? It can happen if you're an amateur like I was. Avoid waxing the same spot even if you're trying to get those stubborn three hairs. This is actually why I don't ever wax my armpits. The first time left them really sticky and they were red and purple for a week. God, my poor teen self really went through it.
5. DIY Brazilian Waxing
Maybe that gif is a bit dramatic but still. You can only see so much down there and it's a real pain. This was probably my least favorite experience. There was slight blood shed and a lot of frustration. I'd say either stick to shaving or leave it up to a professional.
Anyone have any bad experiences to share or have I been the only one failing at life?
