Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

[ Edited ]

At 68 I have little to no hair left anywhere and it is/was blond so

I don’t shave any more.

My legs were never really hairy, I am 64 and recently I shave maybe once a month, I have no hair on my legs and I can not remember the last time I shaved them


I turned 61  this past Sunday, I still have to shave my legs/underarms. Underarms are shaved year round every 3rd day, I don't bother with my legs in fall/winter since I'm always in jeans. Spring/summer when I start wearing shorts/skirts/dresses, my legs are shaved every 3rd day.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I had a hysterectomy in my early 40s, and the hair stopped growing what seemed like instantly on my legs.  However, the legs were the only areas that went hairless.  But that was good enough for me.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I went through menopause at the age of 45.  That was nearly 12 years ago and the hair hasn't stopped growing.  I don't walk about bare legged so I usually shave if there is a special occasion coming up and I will be showing my legs.  I don't go to many special occasions so........  Woman Very Happy

I am 59.  In the summer I shave twice a week.  In the winter, hardly ever.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I stopped shaving my legs when I was in my 30s after I had laser hair removal done. I'm 63 now and I've had to get retouched since then but not a big deal like it was the first time.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I went into full menopause at  age 47.  Pretty much no more leg or underarm hair since then I am almost 64 now.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I never really had to shave my legs much, once every 2 or 3 months.

Re: At what age dis you stop shaving your legs

I am almost 72 and shave legs and under arms and even forearms several times a week.  My hair is dark and I always have had to shave and tweeze to eliminate hair.
