This may not work for young people who have normal amount of hair on their legs - but I'm old and don't have a lot of hair on my legs. I DO, however, have it on my chin, in my nose and in anyother place you DON'T want it. I use the homemade hand cream recipe found here on this board - don't even have to use water. I can shave my legs sitting on my bed. No razor burn either. Then all I have to do is rinse my razor in hot water and I'm done. I have a jar of this homemade cream in the bathroom at work, beside my recliner and beside my bed. Need to make another batch. BTW, I added some extra virgin olive oil to my batch because my skin is so dry.

Isn't that just one of the joys :cry: of getting older - hair on our faces. I have one that grows out of my cheek and I never see it until its about a foot long (not quite but feels like it) then I pluck it out. Thankfully I don't have much of the problem but I am sure it will happen one day. At least you found a pleasant way to take care of it.

:lol: :lol:

A girl I worked with started to get facial hair so she went to a Dr. Her Dr. told her to always cut and never pluck. When you pull you stimulate more hair growth and will get even more.
