Ok I have GOT to learn the secret to no pickiness

Recommended Posts

I hate body hair.HATE IT.  
 Like one lovely lady said in another post,

“I prefer no hair from my nose to my toes”. 
So I shave.   Everything.  
A day or two later I am dying from pickiness. Rough stubble.  MostLy in my nether regions but also butt and back of thighs.  
is there anything yo do that will soften these areas?

I have no experience to draw on regarding body hair you poor child, I am an American Hairless, could use a little more on top. Meh!

Not really a problem I have, but I'd vigorously moisturize. There's got to be some product that makes body hair softer just because beards are a thing. I heard Vaseline once for mustaches, but I never tried it.

I’ve got to try something.  I remember why I just give up and let it grow out.  Less pain and discomfort but it’s like I’m quitting.  Lol

I know I will have to shave or something for the rest of my life.  I would love to learn how others deal with it.

I think when you mow, you do it with the grain rather than against it to avoid ingrown hairs which can become a nuisance and even infected. I tend to deal with it that way in the lower region and find it's the way to go.

My methodology :

1. I take many days to go from not shaved to fully shaved

2. Cut longer hairs with cisors if need be.

3. Use an electric shaving tool in the first pass.

4. Use a razor for second pass.

 

* : I wash my tools and I'm not mixing regions.

* : use shaving cream

* : Use moisturizer afterward

* : Use exfoliating cream 2 times a week

* : Down the leg, then up the leg (if your skin not sensitive)

* : Do this before going to bed late and not in the morning.

This is basically my regime too. 
What exfoliating creams do you use.  
sadly I am still limited to male lotions for body and face.  I’m trying to edge more to crossed sex products now.  Perfumes men and women can wear.  Deodorant.   Etc.  

Suggestions?

I also hate my body hair. It is super triggering, especially my chest hair.
 

Exfoliate before and after shaving. Post shave moisturize and keep moisturizing regularly. This has me both from the pickiness as well as from ingrown hairs. 
 

When i can, I use nair or similar products as it keeps the the tip of the hair being sharp, which is what shaving does. 
 

I use a neutrogena body wash, called clean and clear I think. It has salicylic acid in it which helps exfoliate and keeps my bacne in control as an added benefit.

Once you are rid of the gonads and have spend many years on feminizing hormones you will find that body hair becomes very light and for some none at all. I no longer have any leg or  underarm hair, though some of it may also be coupled as an age related thing.

That's a dream.  Something to hopefully look forward to.

@ShawnaLeigh looking back at what was an older post let me say this.  I have waxed. I’ve used depilatory creams.  I’ve used an electric razor and a multi blade razor and an epilator.  Here’s what I have found.  Sugar wax over hard wax, but both require you let your hair grow between waxing.  Not a good option for me at least.  Shaving, well the electric razors gave me razor burn or even tiny cuts on soft skin.  Depilatory smelly, takes a while to apply, wait and wash off for what was less than expected results.

 

my current regime is face: I use a cleansing wash with a brush.  (Won’t mention brands but there are several brush systems available). I then apply a shaving lubricant to my face and shave with my rotary electric wet/dry.  Next I go back over it with a multi blade razor.  That’s as close as I can get my face before makeup.  
 

arms and legs I use an epilator.  Everything else a razor.  I can’t bring my self to use the epilator on my chest or stomach.  I do find a women’s razor does a better job.

      Sounds like a great day!

      Does anyone remember a mid-sixties Italian sci-fi epic called "Wild Wild Planet"?  Central to the plot was the head of a giant bioscience corporation who wanted to merge his body with that of the lead female character to form a new "perfect" being.  From what the movie implied, the resultant individual was going to be part man/part woman . . . divided lengthwise!   The issue of 'passing' (of any kind) was evidently not a concern in this enlightened future paradise LOL.

      Wow,   This is a powerful movie, and I've only watched about half of it so far!   Hugs, Mike

      It's shifted a little on HRT. I'm not sure if it's because of the HRT or because as a woman, it's more socially acceptable to like men. I can admit that there are some men that I would consider as a romantic partner. They have to be pretty special though, I'm still pretty gay. My wife and I talked about it. I have no plans to act on any of these feelings, I love my wife and that's the end of it. However, it's not a bad thing that I can admit that I'm a little bi. I guess it means that I'm choosing her over an even larger pool of people.   Good on you for being into beards though. I personally find them repulsive. I like smooth, muscular (and apparently black) men. I have no idea why.   Hugs!

      Top o’ the morning everyone! Got to sleep in today and now enjoying a nice cup of the good stuff. Got an appointment with a personal trainer this afternoon and thinking of getting my ears pierced today. Hope everyone has a great day.

      Good morning everyone. I am feeling tired his morning and it is another slow day at work, so that isn't helping. I am looking forward to having tomorrow off and the wife and I are going to go for a drive in the country which will be nice. I am going to be seeing my mom for the first time since coming out on Saturday, so that will be interesting. I am wondering what she is expecting, which I probably shouldn't be worrying about, but yet here I am. I am not sure what I am expecting myself to be honest.

      Good Morning!   Elizabeth that is wonderful news! I remember that moment I received my new work badge, was like a young child getting the toy they wanted so badly for Christmas!    Waking up this morning to my regular and tiresome routine. Hate to say this, but I’m ready to go back to work in about 4 weeks. While dilating and such keeps me busy, I’m getting more and more stir crazy in the house. As flu season approaches, I know my ICU I work in will be hit hard with the combination of the sick CoVID patients. I’m ready to return to being a Nurse!    So, about to shower and get myself together for another Doctors appointment and to get my nails done.    Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

      Good Morning Ladies! I'm sensing lots of good vibes here this morning. I'm loving all the positive changes I'm seeing in everyone's lives. Keep it up girls. Emily, good luck with the consult. I'm probably going that route in a year once eligible from a time of hormones perspective.  I would love to just do SRS instead but that's going to be a much longer wait time and I would rather get off the spiro faster and reduce the E needed since I'm older.   Today's adventure: Consult for laser tattoo removal.  I've got a big celtic knotwork tat on each deltoid area that looks terribly male and I don't do sleeveless because of it.  The big back piece I might live with for a while since I don't see it and most clothes cover it anyways.     I feel like I need more coffee . I rushed my two cups this morning since I over slept and didn't get to enjoy them. I don't need the added caffeine though.  Tomorrow I'm gonna set an alarm.

      Great morning everyone    the birds are singing their happy songs, the sky is a beautiful blue and the sun is smiling down at us!  What a great day.   And what a good news day for Emily and Liz and several of my local friends too.  Even for me, my wife and I are starting  to recover.  I guess having our kids (who are middle age which in it self is hard to imagine) sit down with us and force some difficult answers has pushed us along.  I think we were stuck on a plateau falling back but never moving forward. now we are climbing up again. It’s great for me and brings tears to my eyes.   Charlize, I haven’t seen you on here in a while.  I trust all is ok?     well, time to enjoy this great day.   hugs   Willow

      I am happy this topic seems to be resonating.  @Berni I will see if I can find a more extensions feelings list but be assured any feeling you or others wish to express is completely welcome.   I am ecstatic that we can and all of you so far have been so open and honest. It helps me me and I hope it helps you.   Heather Shay

      Yup, fifty-something! The nightie i mentioned is..I think a 4XL..? Maybe 5? The male puberty fairy hit me pretty hard! (Didn't bother me at the time, I saw it as "rite of passage" and much-desired "growing up", but now I envy the transwomen who started early and avoided it.)   I think that size will go down a little bit when I lose the weight I need to, but even before I ever started considering transitioning, I'd already been thinking "Yea, I really should get a good sewing machine and learn how to make alterations and make my own clothes." At least I'm not totally a novice at it, I have sewn before, just not often enough to remember how to do it...and I never could keep a straight line!   I heard about a documentary series called "My Giant Life" about a few very large-frame women, probably even bigger than me from the sound of it. I should watch it, hopefully they'll talk about how they deal with clothing.
