Why must we torture ourselves?


OUCH!! Damn and I didn't even get it all!! This waxing thing is painful!!
Ok I've been waxing my underarms for the last few months, and one would think it might hurt a little less after that period of time, but NOOOO!!
I know it seems almost masochistic, but I'm not getting off on THIS pain!
The upside to waxing as opposed to shaving in the underarm area is that you only have to do it once every 2-3 weeks. This is great in the summer when a girl is always wearing the tank tops and not to mention the swimsuits! Another good thing about it is it gives a smoother surface to the underarm. It eliminates the "shave bumps", for me at least, and I think a little pain for a day or two is worth it. And do I ever hate worrying about shaving!!
Now I just have to work up the courage to wax a little farther south! YIKES!!
Anyway, enough of my 5AM ramblings for now! Have a great day!!

It would not hurt as much if you were doing it every other day or so. But, if you are doing it every 2-3 weeks the skin has plenty of time to heal and soften up by then. Your skin becomes desensitized to shaving as you do it every couple of days rather than every couple of weeks.

Thank you keystone. I am aware of this, I just tend to ramble at 5 AM sometimes A girl can still hope the pain gets less in time, though right??
