I told you about my face wax. The wax that made my skin burn. Happy memories. This time it’s body hair bleach.
This was long ago. It was my first time as an au pair in London. I thought bleaching my leg hair would make it invisible. It was long ago and then hair removal products were almost harmful. I decided to do it when the kid I was watching had an afternoon rest. I often had him sleep longer then than the mom had said he would. I was a young girl and had to have that time to myself. The parents were not home and cause of that I thought the living room was the right place to do it. I mixed the bleaching powder with everything in the box it came with. There was powder everywhere. I put it on my legs and had time to myself.
I sat with the bleach without trousers on……..and the front door slowly opened. It was the father. He came home early. There I was without trousers. Bleach on my legs. Bleaching powder everywhere. And the kid was sleeping when he shouldn’t be sleeping. I put my trousers on before the father saw me. The bleach was burning. I don’t know how but I also got the powder off the furniture. I said we had to buy groceries and he went to the store.
The bleach had to be rinsed off. I had to it fast and I did. My leg hair wasn’t bleached and all I got was rashes. I got countless spots. Don’t do body hair removal without time to do it.
Wax strips. I had no bleaching powder.
