Do you shave or wax? Give reasons. I've been waxing since I was 14. Sure, you get instant gratification from shaving (20-30 minutes for shaving, but it takes me nearly 2 hours to do a thorough leg wax), but I think my skin is healthier because I wax. Girls I know, and even some guys, think I'm a beast because I do it myself, but I barely even feel it anymore. Besides, taking a razor blade to the surface of my skin kind of freaks me out.
