I'm with you! Don't you love taking the chunks out of your shins when your kids let out some blood curdling scream (usually over who had something first blah,blah)? I have the same prob. Even when I have just shaved, my legs are so white and the hair so dark that you can still see little black dots. Time to tan for me.
My only advice is NEVER NEVER NEVER wax your bikini line by yourself at home. I put the wax on both sides at once. After letting out my own blood curdling scream from pulling off the first one, I couldn't bring myself to rip the second one off. No way! I walked around for a week waiting for the hair to grow enough that I could slip a pair of scissors under the cloth strip. Not nice, since any exposed wax sticks to anything. Middle of the night code, had to pee reallyyyyyy bad, ran to the bathroom, practically tore my scrubs
off and in the process I got the wax stuck to my underwear so when I tugged them down, Oh man. I hope you will never have any idea how badly that hurts. Now, I have learned that any oil based substance will disolve the wax. Ahhhh, memories.
