How I epilate unwanted facial hair to get very smooth skin! *Video!*


So I got SUPER brave and made a video of how I epilate some problem hairs on my face and neck.

Using an epilator just seems to be the best method for me to clear unwanted hair while waiting to get my money together for more permanent solutions like electrolysis or laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is long term reduction and does not permanently remove the hair for most clients. But it should drastically reduce your growth. Only problem is it can get very expensive!

So I will make this blog posting short since I made a video of the whole process. Here are the steps I took, which I state in the video, to epilate my skin the right away.

  1. Make sure my face is clean.
  2. Exfoliate my skin with a nice scrub which makes my hairs come out better.
  3. OPTIONAL: Use a numbing cream to cut down on the pain factor.
  4. Clean skin completely of exfoliating cream/scurb.
  5. Make sure my wet/dry epilator is wet and has a little soap on it. I do this simply because I hate epilating dry skin!
  6. Epilate in circular motions. This should only take a few minutes or less.
  7. OPTIONAL: Wipe your face again.
  8. Put some ointment on the freshly epilated areas like Aloe Vera or Cocoa Butter.
  9. Walk around the house proclaiming how sexy you are!

Enjoy the video!

Bikini Hair Epilating, Going “Down there,” Boy-Cut Panties and Other Tips *PICS & Raunchy Humor!*


So I woke up this morning and realized I have not tamed my coochie in a while.

Yes, it was looking like  it hasn’t been cut in about 4 months!

And I got to thinking that, while preparing my ammunition for my coochie hair, who is looking down there anyway?! Why all the huff puff about making the bikini line looking flawless!?

For any type of ethnic background and hair type, whenever you remove a hair from the shaft you run the risk of an ingrown, even if you removed it properly.

I like epilating alot, especially for my face and bikini line. Epilating is basically several tweezers on a small device rotating rapidly to capture all hairs and pull from the root. If it sounds painful it’s because it is! But it takes getting use to like anything else.

There simply is no method of hair removal that is painless while being effective AND THERE IS NO PERMANENT  HAIR REMOVAL METHOD BESIDES ELECTROLYSIS!!!!

Even as promising as laser hair removal is, you WILL NEED touch-up sessions in the long-term, thus it is not permanent. This is coming from a woman who has been there, done that with laser hair removal.

And even more deep, does your man REALLY go down “there” that much that the shit constantly got to look like the letter “I” ?!

If so, I ‘m officially jealous of you, and secondly, if he any damn good at it, why the hell is he worried about your bikini line?! He ain’t munching on that too is he?! (Sounds kinky though…. 🙂

Now in his defense (or hers…yes I got love for the LGBT community too!) you may want to keep it trimmed occasionally. I mean, he’s trying to please you, not floss!!!

So getting back to my Amazonian bikini line…I typically do not like shaving my bikini line and try to keep to epilating due to the horrific razor bumps that can happen down there.

But I made sure to moisten my body first and then epilate in the tub!

SO HERE ARE THE STEPS I TOOK TO CLEAN UP MY BIKINI LINE THIS MORNING EPILATING!

  1. Ran very warm bath water and put a very generous amount of body hemp oil in it along with a small amount of bath bubbles.
  2. Got my epilator together
  3. Sat my ass in
  4. Relaxed for about 10 minutes to let my body and pores take in the oil.
  5. I took the epilator and shaved my happy trail and bikini line
  6. I then took the epilator part and epilated my trail and bikini line (*Note: my epilator is a shaver/epilator in one that I can use in water!)
  7. Because the epilator can be uncomfortable, I only epilated in the direction of hair growth bit by bit.
  8. Got my hairy ass out
  9. Dried off and immediately put some Aloe Vera gel on my fresh epilated regions as well as some organic shea and coconut oil butter by Bubble and Bee. (*note: good stuff but it’s greasy as hell! Use lightly!) Also try, Bikini Zone.…Good shit there!
  10. Put some clothes on my ass
  11. Took pics!

Keeping the bikini line moisten keeps hairs from acting an ass and not ingrowing. Again, I cannot stress putting something on your freshly epilated hairs. Aloe Vera is good on everything and Bikini Zone is also VERY GOOD for reducing ingrowns! It works very well for my cooch!

And you can always wear some boy cut panties. May work best for those who do not like to removal all the hair. I personally do not remove my bikini hairs full Brazilian style. I mean, WHY? Seriously, why?! Who is going to be looking that damn hard at your ass other than YOU?! I am all for feeling great about yourself but I don’t think I want hot wax put between my ass and ripped off. Might have to pass on that on that one! But suit yourself!!!

Boy cuts are of course shaped to cover much of the bikini line if you are still self-conscious about stubborn blemishes that wont seem to go away.  Here are some photos of me in some, though the quality in some may be slightly blurry because the mirrors in my bathroom and the lens on my camera phone were a little foggy after bathing:

Wear these to cover up much of your bikini line blemishes. They cover mine very well. I actually prefer boy cut bikinis and underwear to regulars.

Did I mention boy cuts make your ass look GREAT!!!!! (*OK OK I’ll stop!  LOL!)

So here is the real reason you’re here! Some before and afters of my freshly epliated bikini!

Right before me getting my stank ass in the tub!

Happy Trail Before

Bikini Line After

Bikini Line After

There are still small hairs that even my epilator didn’t catch but as you can see it’s pretty clean and some old blemishes are going away! I make it a point to not shave down there all the time, which allows blemishes and ingrowns to clear up.

With boy cut panties you cover up many scars which is good because it allows damaged skin to repair itself while enjoying the beach or your man doing his “thing” down there!!! 🙂

Let me remind you that epilating hairs down there can hurt! I recommend only epilating when the skin is very lubricated.

You can also do this method with waxing as well, just as long as you lubricate your skin with Aloe Vera gel or some type of lotion or Bikini Zone lubed on all recently tweezed, waxed, electrolysized, lasered or epilated hairs.

So the point is epilating does hurt but it removes sensitive hairs very well and maybe help ease your bikini line blues!

Progress Thus Far!


So I have been doing my regimen faithfully for a couple of weeks now and the hair is growing much slower.

I cannot say it’s gone completely, and it probably never will be, but it is certainly way slower in growth.

No other changes yet. My moods are normal, but I have not gotten a period yet since starting birth control some months ago. But that may be an issue with my body regulating to birth control. I have not been on it in YEARS!

My hand epilator, made by Panasonic, helps tremendously cut down on my tweezing. It’s the Panasonic Wet/Dry epliator that you can use on wet or dry skin. Even though it’s advertised for the body I use it for my face. I typically wax my body hairs. It is not completely painless, I will admit, but it gets the job done very well!Image
I will probably stick to waxing my body hair, especially my bikini line and abdomen. That epilator on tender hairs like that I simply cannot tough it out!

My next step is to find a chemical peel to remove these scars from my face and bikini line. I have heard from a few online chats that salicylic acid peels work good for scars that got some years on them. I have been using a fading night cream with glycolic acid in it on my bikini every night and it seems to be drying up the scars, but I cannot tell if they are fading just yet.

For my own personal calculation knowing how old many of my scars are, I think I will start with a salicylic peel at 20%.

Yes I will post before and afters like always! I will be purchasing the acid sometime this coming week so be on the look out for that.
