Challenging Myself

Posted on | November 28, 2012 | 8 Comments |

If there are rules, I tend not to follow them – not unless someone can give me a pretty good reason for that rule to be there.  So when it comes to body hair, and society’s rules?  I stick my tongue out at them! I have wild bush and silky pits, and I love them like that.

This month, though, I challenged myself – because one of the few areas of my body that I don’t adore is my chinny-chin-chin, and the ever-appearing hairs. So I’ve been ignoring the tweezers and letting them grow, and grow, and grow. (And as a bonus, I let my leg hair go free as well – well, why not?)

You know what? It’s not bad!

I’ve written all about it over at Express. You can see my ‘beard’ up close and personal there, but there are some sassy click-throughs here too :)

    Honestly, not really noticeable from where I sit!
    I have a couple of female friends who are plagued with hirsutism… they get full sideburns and beards and have to shave daily. Society just is not kind when it comes to such things.

    I have a few hairs on my chin too.I am also the hairest woman alive. Tweezing my face is a custom now. I hate it! I can’t see them in the photo, but I am happy you let them grow instead of worrying about them!

    I am a shaver… of bits, legs and armpits. I like the smoothness. I have very fine hair on my top lip but because I am dark sometimes it is more visible and so I get the hair bleach out.

    Like Molly, I am a shaver of tender bits, legs and armpits. One place I will never shave though, is under my chin, where yes, I have hairs too. I will always remember what my gran has told me: never ever start to shave there, just pull it out with tweezers. But darn, still it seems those hair just get more and more! I guess it’s all part of getting older…

    I love your sassy click-throughs :)

    Kazi – No, society is not kind at all, unfortunately. In these photos it’s not really obvious, but it was something I was incredibly aware of all month. Interesting, isn’t it?

    Kim – I am glad I let them grow too! I have returned (now it’s December) to tweezing them, but I think I’ll be considerably more relaxed about it, rather than going after them when the first mm appears.

    Molly – It’s always interesting to hear how different people treat their body hair. Thank you!

    Rebel – Tweezers seem to be the way to go when it comes to chins. I find it funny how my eyebrows and sideburns (yes, I have those) don’t bother me at all, but my chin really does!

    Pea – *hugs* You say the best things!

    xx Dee

    I was just in the mirror earlier thinking it’s a sure sign of getting older that I have numerous chin hairs now!

    I hate them. Not because of looks, but how they feel. They are more coarse, they are obvious to my fingers. I’m one of THOSE. A scab-picker, a zit-finder. If anything on me feels out of the ordinary, my fingers will find it and not leave it be. The worst is when a mole chin hair is just peeking out barely enough that I can feel it, but not enough so that tweezers can grab it.

    Lilly – You do that too, huh? I am terrible when it comes to pimples, and I can’t leave scabs alone to save myself! But the little coarse hairs are the worst. My hands just keep returning to my face and I dig stroke pull tug tweak!

    xx Dee
