The modern male is no longer as it once was, handsome hairy who did not care to appear similar to a monkey because the man stands out from the woman for this too.
Today more and more men decide to shave their chest, legs and even their back. Here we take a cue from a recent survey carried out by the monthly magazine Men’s Health to try to understand if and when it is appropriate to shave the legs.
The leg hair removal survey
The magazine asked its readers if they shaved their legs, about 600 people replied and for 51.6% the most popular response was “I don’t really think about shaving my legs”. 33.1% replied that they did not shave completely, but at most shortened the hair while the minority, just 15.3%, replied that they shaved frequently.

In these words we can summarize more or less all the most common reasons why most men shave their legs. If you are still thinking about it, know that shaving your legs is not something cheap because, to do it well, you need to turn to a professional beautician.
In addition, apart from the cost due to sessions that will become regular (a bit like when you cut your beard for the first time, the hair will grow faster and faster), also know that hair removal is rather painful. But you know, if you want to look beautiful, you have to suffer a little …
