For every cringe-inducing problem, from ghostly gams to orange-peel-afflicted skin, we have an easy and effective solution. But don’t stop at the thighs! Read on for how to keep your lower body looking svelte and sexy.
* DILEMMA #1
Save-your-skin tip: If ingrown hairs are a problem, apply an anti-inflammation product or trade your shaver for an epilator.
An advantage of this hair-removal option is that legs will stay hair-free for much longer than with shaving. Smooth skin can last anywhere from a few days to more than a week. Drawbacks include the pain factor (pop an aspirin or Panadol half an hour before, and avoid waxing during the sensitive three to four days prior to your period), the expense and the stubble you have to endure while waiting between waxes. Hair should be a minimum of 5 to 8mm long so the wax can catch on the strands more easily. A cheaper option is to get a home waxing kit.
