Spring has sprung and the weather is lovely and warm. DH has put on shorts today and we'll be planting in the garden so I think to myself "Huh, I'll wear shorts too!". But before I can do that a razor must be introduced to my legs, which hasn't happened all winter. I don't care too much about the appearance of my legs but going out like a sasquatch is a bad thing. So I shaved.

Then...I blistered. ARRRRRGGG! How could I forget?!? So now I've had to deal with pain and blisters on my calfs for the last two days. How could I be so silly? Was I in denial? Is it really worth it? Sigh...

Thanks for listening to my vent [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Ouch!

Out of curiosity, can you use products like Nair?

Now that would be an ouch!

I've tried products like Nair a few times and it just stings WAY too much for me.

Once I have a shaving regimine down I will blister less but, boy, do I go through razors! DH is constantly on the lookout for a type of razor that won't clog up.

I honestly think that shaving is the least of my worries. I'm sure that people will notice the skin and the fat-dimples on my knees before the hair! LOL
