“Do You Help TS Ladies?” (Part Four)

gender identity, MTF, TG, trans womanAnd Then There Is the Practical…

Whether or not you are currently, haven’t begun yet or do not intend to take pharmaceutical grade hormones which do affect your physicality, taking care of your body ALL the time is essential, and everyone who aims to maximize personal femininity, regardless of particular gender identity, needs to dedicate efforts to those practical aspects of feminization.

Treating Your Body Like Your Temple

Here we are going to touch only on the most obvious concerns in looking and feeling feminine. They all revolve around two parts of the body of which (in my opinion) everyone, regardless of gender identity, should take proper care: hair and skin.

Your Magnificent Mane

In my experience, growing out hair and improving its health is often of particular concern to trans women, especially when one wishes to transition from a wig to her own locks.

The following is a jumping-off point when I receive questions on hair care from my TG callers:

Know your hair type (oily, normal, dry), and use products formulated precisely for your type. Beyond shampoos and conditioners, take care in selecting other products, such as leave-in conditioners, deep-conditioning hair treatments, styling gels, hair sprays, and so on. You want to use those items that leave your hair feeling light, full of body, and healthy.

This is only scratching the surface of so many more aspects that help contribute to having a gorgeous head of hair.

Radiant Skin

Showcasing your beautiful face relies on more than just having a nice smile!

Cleanser… Toner… Daytime moisturizer with a high SPF… A high quality exfoliant… Targeted facial treatments… Nighttime moisturizer that doesn’t leave your face (or pillowcase!) feeling oily…

While we’re constantly having products pushed on us that guarantee smooth, flawless skin, the truth is that not all are created equally, suitable for anyone or required to cost a mint to be effective; therefore, one of the things I cover with my trans ladies (as well as bigender callers and serious lifestyle crossdressers) is how to take care of their own skin in a highly individualized way in order to achieve the healthy, glowing, smooth skin of a woman who takes great care and pride in her body and knows that the use of cosmetics is an added challenge for her skin.

(The skin on your tootsies requires its own focus and special care to look like pretty, touchable lady feet, so that’s a completely different discussion on skin care.)

No Fur For Her!

Body hair removal is without a doubt a prospect that transcends gender identity! I get questions on how to get a handle on and maintain body hair from people across the entire gender spectrum, and these questions cover facial, underarm, bikini area, legs (No one likes hair under their stockings!), and every other part of the body where hair is undesirable.

Together we discuss the general state of your body hair, determine any areas of body you find extra-challenging to control, and find a solution for hair removal that works best for you, whether that’s shaving, waxing, electrolysis, laser hair removal or a combination of these.

Again, this is ONLY the tip of the iceberg in taking practical care of your body, and your responsibility for being properly attentive to it transcends gender identity. It’s just that some folks, like TS ladies, want more insight into options and tips on implementing them – and THAT is one of the very reasons this feminization Mistress is here!!
