Your Beauty Routine: What Do You Hide From Your Partner?

Beauty, they say, is pain. But it’s also really, reallyembarrassing.

Because it’s one thing to let your man see you apply mascara, blowdry your hair or rub on lotion each morning – but allowing him an up-close view while you wax, pluck and shave? Go ahead and up that “pain” to “torture.”

A recent survey from U.K.-based beauty sitefeelunique finds women, on average, have eight beauty rituals they refuse to let their mates see them perform, the Daily Mail reports.

I think we all do this to some extent!  What part of your beauty routine do you hide from your partner?

I think that for me, the hair removal part is the only thing I am truly uncomfortable with. I know that it may seem like an antiquated notion but that’s just the type of thing where you don’t want to see the ‘before’ picture. I consider it to be a private thing that I do to look good for the both of us!

I think hair removal is about the only thing that I keep from my partner. No one needs to see that! LOL

I have certain things regarding hair removal I won't do with him around, lol. Some I will, some I won't. That's really about the only thing I can think of. I'll put on face masks where he can see, dye my hair (which looks scary about half way through), hair up in curlers, etc. So I don't think I have eight things. Only one, lol. But then, we've been together 20 years so there aren't too many secrets at this point.
