    I have tried waxing but I seem to be allergic to something in the wax and so is my grand daughter so if you decided to use the wax method try it on your arm first to see if you have any reaction to it.

    Isn't that a bit like telling a friend she needs to shave her legs or armpits. . . or that she needs to pluck her eyebrows?

    Years ago, my best friend gently told me I was overplucking my eyebrows and it didn't look good. I appreciated the feedback and was more than happy to stop plucking so much.

    I think you'd have to determine for yourself if you should tell your friend something like this, there are so many variables. Would she be able to take the comment in the spirit it's intended.... would you be able to put it in a way that won't hurt her feelings.... can you pick a day/time when she's in the right mood... etc.

    Our poor husbands, lol. They have to walk this tightrope every day.

    Also bear in mind that some people don't mind looking "natural."

    No, I would not tell my friend that she needs to groom herself, but I wouldn't mind it if someone told me.

    I get my lip waxed in a salon when I get my hair trimmed. Doesn't cost that much. I always feel better not having prickles on my lip. LOL

    I just puck them with tweezers. I pucked eyebrows for a long time and now I haven't had to tweeze eyebrows for more than 20 years. I think the hair follicles finally died, and hope that happens with my facial hair. Don't want husband to tease me about using his razor. LOL

    Isn't that the truth. I don't grow hair on my legs anymore except for 4 or 5 hairs just below my kneecaps. And much less in the pits. But my upper lip is making up for it. And what's with the menopause curl? I always had very straight hair, then after menopause it started getting curly at the nape. Now it is curly (wavy, with body)everywhere except the crown and front. Could it do it everywhere? Oh no, not so lucky there. Still have to do something to the top to make it look nice. Retired now, don't have to curl and spackle every day! And the skin tags!!!!!! Don't get me started!

    I use avon's waxing kit for the microwave. I just heat the tub of wax, nuke for 90 seconds, first i test on my hand to make sure it's not too hot, spread it on, cover with waxing cloth, then real fast rip it off. I've been doing this for 25 years and the hair removes easily now. I pull it fast so it dosen't hurt. I used to do my legs too. Cost is about 12.00 lasts about 6 mo.

    I burned myself once trying to wax - and such a prominent place, right on my chin. I know thread and use tweezers. You can google threading. Some people have told me it's gentler on my fair skin. Yes, it's an annoyance but too expensive and inconvenient to go somehwhere and get it done.
