I have extremely sensitive skin. I break out in ugly red welts from strong wind, cold, certain beauty products… and when I try to remove my body hair.
This is a more recent development, the sensitive skin. It started about a year or two ago. I’d like to resolve it somehow.
Sometimes I can shave my legs and underarms without getting angry red bumps and sore splotches. I cannot use products like Nair–it’s like having a chemical burn (I have actually bled from using Nair before). I tried waxing a small area of my skin once but it didn’t remove the hair (it could have been me–I’ve never used wax before) so I didn’t bother to try it all over.
Does anyone have any help? (I’ll bring it up with my dermatologist but I’d also like opinions here.)
I can’t afford anything expensive like laser hair removal.
