Using a Pumice Stone for Hair Removal

I am just wondering how to use pumice stone for hair removal on one's body. Using silky mitts right now but want something more economical. Don't fancy going into a car place in Abdn and asking for fine grain sandpaper so wondered if anyone knew any details.

Um ow. I do know they have things I've seen in the hair removal section, you rub it on you and the hair "comes off". Course I would imagine that your skin does too, so unless you need some good exfoliation, I would try a cream!

Or laser if you can! I am saving my money, had one treatment already and am AMAZED!!!!

Nope I wouldn't go for laser permanantly. The thought of permanantly removing what God has put there for a purpose scares me. Even if I don't know what the purpose behind half a mountain of hair is.

But thanks anyways

I see what you mean, but honestly I don't think God wanted me to get side effects of a birth control 15 years ago that puts man hairs on my chin! :-) I am sure there would be a few ladies at my church that would agree with me too! But I hope you find something!

In my class i have some Muslin girls and thy showed me how they do hair removal in their country, like doing eye brows or on the chin...etc... i got them to show me and do my eyebrows.... then when i got home I did my chin.

they use a piece of thread about 10 to 12 inch... they tie a knot to unite both ends... then they put it around each hand index and thumb... the knot is on the right hand side. then they make 3 to 4 twist with left hand thread...then they catch the hair pass the knot on right hand side and side the knot down by opening their left index and thumb the knot moves to the hair and removes it by pulling it out... once you get the hang of it its fast... and a touch painful...but not so bad... i love this method I hope it helps. If you try it let me know how you like it... i may need more practice for the eyebrows... but the chin piece of cake.

one more thing ... i tried lazer.... i have some hair that was white i was told dark hair gets better results.... so lazer does not work as well on it... i spent over $1000 and don't see much progress so i quit.... it is expensive and may not always work for some individuals... i feel i wasted my money

Silky mitts can be obtained from chemists etc. over here. They are basically very fine sandpaper that you gently rub over your legs in a circular motion and it removes (cuts off) hair. Over here they are about 99p for 3.
