Mum Reveals She Took Her 11-Year-Old Daughter To Get Her Legs Waxed
A mum has described how she took her 11-year-old daughter to get her legs waxed, and people have mixed feelings about it.
The woman added her daughter had "smiled throughout" and hadn't found the process painful.
Others agreed she had done the right thing, adding they had taken their daughters to get their body hair removed too.
Another mum said her daughter became very self-conscious when they started dealing with her "very dark hair".
"She was very self conscious about her dark hair on her arms and face. When I found her trying to pull the hair out of her arms that was it," she wrote.
"So took her to get threading for her upper lip and eyebrows. Creams for her legs and arms. She is nearly 15 and it's part of her routine but now shaves her legs.
"Not her arms now but despite her age I did what I could to support her as she was becoming distressed by it."
Not everyone agreed with the idea of taking a pre-teen to get waxed, however.
One person commented: "Not unreasonable to remove the hair but waxing would surely be too painful for an 11 year old. I can't handle it and I'm an adult!
Another mum said: "I do think it's a shame that our society makes girls feel their bodies are somehow wrong as they are. Boys don't feel like this do they?"
Most beauty campaigns show women with poreless and hairless faces, however, most women know this is not the case and MAC decided to keep things natural with its social media post.
The cosmetic brand posted a close up picture by makeup artist Matthew King of a model's lips wearing MAC's Chestnut lip pencil, and social media users were quick to praise the decision not to edit out the hairs.
One person commented: "Look at this beautiful company representing those of us women who aren't completely hairless! [sic]."
