Why do we women put ourselves through torture for beauty?

I've had it!
I practiclaly tore layers from my own skin today waxing and for what?
So it looks a little smoother and softer?
The skin where the wax was placed is still red and sore 6 hours later, oh but it does feel smooth. Yippee

Why do we do this to ourselves?
Men can walk around like hairy apes, but one hair out of place on our bodies and we are ugly creatures who "go for the natural look".

Excuse me while I vent.
Sometimes it sucks being a girl.

I hear ya manda. I can't stand waxing, nearly reduces me to tears. I don'T know how you do it.

One of the worst things is depilatory lotions like Nair or Neet....Eeew. The smell stays in your bathroom for hours.

yarof, how do you know how hairy I am?
Perhaps I am a hairy underarmed and legged wolfgirl.
Don't cry yarof, we girls should stand strong and say we are beautiful without the high maintenance routine!

Although, I must say Gillette's girly wildberry shaving cream is delish and leaves u feeling silky smooth. FOR LIKE A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!

its very easy to say, but would i have wasted my time writing that if i didnt feel that way?

i dunno, its hard to compliment someone these days without looking like your trying to get something back in return.

have a nice night.

Why not just shave? It may be annoying, but at least you don't have to put yourself through a torture like waxing.

I only use an eye-liner, myself... and I usually wear pants so that I don't have to shave my legs too often. The hair is not there if nobody sees it,

Same here buddy!



actually I wear little make-up and look wrong with so much on yet mum says I should wear more.............well thats all very well if u have a make-up artist to help with colours to suit and shit but if not. I just ignore................

it is hard being a girl.........I blame mags too for shoving perfection into the eyes of a girl who can or may look nothing like that............fuk models, I would have REAL women in my mag............

Why manda? I dont bother In sunlight you can really tell too. I've never waxed, I think the idea of pouring hot wax over my legs is just not right. My mum got me one of the Venus shaving kits for xmas and I used it once. It does smell lovely that shaving gel stuff they made. Im going to add shaving to my mid year resolutions.
