No, it's not true that leg hair grows faster in hot weather, it just feels that way because you're wearing skin-baring skirts and shorts. Get rid of stubble fast: Shaving is best for large areas, like legs (try Bic Soleil Shimmer Shaver, $6.99, drugstores), while waxing is better in spots where precision is key, such as the bikini line (try Nair Soothing Wax Kit, $7.99, drugstores), says David Bank, MD, a dermatologist and director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, New York. For sensitive underarms, try a depilatory with calming ingredients, like Veet Sensitive Formula Hair Removal Lotion, $5.99, drugstores, which contains shea butter. Immediately follow up any shave session with a moisturizing body oil or lotion to protect skin and enhance softness, says Dr. Bank. Try Vaseline Cocoa Butter Vitalizing Gel Body Oil, $6.99, drugstores.
