Having smooth, unblemished, and hairless skin makes a woman feel clean and beautiful. It boosts confidence and self-esteem in women. Many women have long hair on their arms and legs and this can look quite ugly. They resort to wearing long skirts and pants, and long-sleeved blouses to hide their excess body hair. Since not everyone has the time to run to a salon for a quick wax, they do the next best thing and try to hide it.
