Hi there, I don't post here often, but feel inclined to about this particular problem. I recently turned 21, and ever since I hit puberty I've had particularly hairy legs, thighs buttocks and lower back. As I've got older the hair is getting more and more and now it seems as though my back is covered with a thin 'down' of hair that is pretty visible when close up. Thing is I'm getting more and more depressed about this. I'm mixed race (Indian / Caucasian) so have quite tanned skin (more of a Hispanic shade) but the hair is coarse. I've taken to reducing the amount of leg hair and thigh hair using a beard trimmer and the lower back hair is managed by nair cream. However, its such a constant issue and embarrassment that I'm limiting the amount of times i spend on holiday as a result of it. I decided against going on a 'beach holiday' with a group of friends because I knew it would entail being topless in the cold light of day for everyone to see. What are people's views on body hair? How do people manage theirs? At some points I feel as though I've got 0 confidence and its really starting to get to me because I realize i'm young but fear that i'm not enjoying my youth to the most because of this problem.
