When I was younger I went through that stage when I just wanted to shave every part of my body.. not sure if all people do, but I know that a lot do. Well, I shaved my arms (not too big of a mistake, grew back fine) my pubic area (which I still shave) and my stomach.. oh god was that a mistake. I used to be a blonde when I was younger (as I got older my hair got darker) so I had very very light blonde hair on my stomach. Not a lot, if I could turn back I would welcome that. But I shaved it and what grew back was dark hair, basically the same as pubic hair. So basically I have to shave *every single day* otherwise it's stubbly. And even when it is shaved, you can still see a dark line. Will this *ever* go away?! It's seriously affecting me.. during sex I'm scared to be in the light! I am thin and have a totally normal body, but I'm scared to be in a bikini because of it. What can I do?
Also, I get horrible razorburn when I shave my armpits (I have horrible shaving luck, I know.) any ideas? I have that BikiniZone razorburn stuff but that doesn't work all that great.
