I'll never forget the first time I shaved my legs. I was already 13 years old because my Dominican mom had this strange rule that I couldn't shave my legs until I officially hit puberty. By then all my friends from school were already rocking smooth, hairless legs while I (the only Latina in the group of coarse!) was sporting knee-length skirts that revealed all those embarrassing pelitos. Anyhow, I've been shaving my legs ever since--not waxing. Despite what some people might say, you can still get super smooth legs all with the help of a razor!
