Hairy legs and swimming don’t mix (sponsored video)

October 1, 2012 in Life

Emily from A Mummy Too bemoans being pale of skin and dark of hair.

So, JD has been doing swimming lessons for a few weeks now. I sit up on the balcony while he kicks and splashes and learns a vital life skill while thoroughly enjoying himself.

It’s going so well, in fact, that I’d like to take Miss J but as she’s just 11 months, that would mean getting in the pool too, which in turn means *gasp* showing my legs.

Just the thought of it brings me out in a cold sweat. In the good old days I used to make regular trips to the waxing salon to be preened and buffed. I was proud of my legs. They were pale but smooth and cellulite free. These days, not so much.

Much as I’d love to go to a salon, there’s no flipping time for such things. As a working mum I barely get time to shower and shave, let alone spend hours being pampered.

Shaving, of course, is a disaster for the pale of skin and dark of hair. I may be smooth of leg at 7am, but by 6pm I can already feel that tell tale roughness and it takes literally 2 days for visible stubble to appear. BOO!

What does work for me, when I have a little more time, is epilating. I’ve actually had a Braun epilator since I was 15 so I know they work, and I wouldn’t live without it. It simply does the job – now I just need a magic cellulite blaster.


Disclosure: this is a sponsored post but words and thoughts are my own. I really do have hairy legs.
