Getting Ready: For Women
By Julia Tanner
Most women reading this are thinking that they already know how to get ready for a date, and this is a similar situation. While that's true, you may want to read this over anyways to make sure that some little details are attended to.
When You're In The Shower
You will want to take a shower because a bath might make you sleepy for the rest of the evening"and you don't want that.
Before you get into the shower, make sure that you have a razor, shaving scream, face soap, and anything else that you normally need. With everything on your mind right now, you don't want to have to keep getting out for things that you have forgotten.
Wash your body very carefully first. You can scrub with one of those poofy sponges and some bath gel for a light, clean scent. You will want to use lukewarm water so that your skin doesn't dry out too much.
Wash your hair carefully and don't use too much conditioner. If your hair is generally clean to begin with, you may even want to skip this step. Hair that is slightly dirty is much easier to style.
After you've been in the shower for a while, you're ready to shave. Shave your legs completely and don't forget the underarms. Of course, you can omit these steps altogether for personal preference.
Another Shaving Question
Most women want to know if they should shave their private area completely.
This is completely up to you and your comfort level. One thing to note is that if you've never done it before this night, it will not end well. This skin is very sensitive and you could end up with a nasty rash.
If you are planning on giving it a try, you will want to start the process out a few weeks a head of time. Start by trimming the hair down and then go ahead and use a razor, depilatory, or wax (ouch). Or you can go to a salon to have this done.
A lot of men like the "bare approach, while other men prefer a half and half layout. It's interesting to note that the less there is, the more excited you can get. Just a thought.
Dressing It Up
Get out your best lingerie ladies. This is the time for the "fun stuff that's been sitting in your drawer. Or maybe you want to buy something special for the occasion. A nice bra and panty set is best.
Wear a nice outfit that is revealing, but in a classy way. You may feel comfortable showing a little cleavage, but you may want to keep it subtle when you're wearing a short skirt.
Makeup Or Not?
Since it's going to be an exciting night, you do want to put a little makeup on to make yourself look fantastic. Like the clothes, you will want to play up your best features.
A nice dark lipstick (if it looks good on you) is best with softer makeup on the rest of the face.
You may also want to consider waterproof and smudge resistance makeup to keep the look on until you get home.
