7 Editors on How Their Grooming Habits Have Changed While Sheltering in Place

If someone would have told me six months ago that I'd very soon find myself on the floor of my bathroom waxing my nether regions on my own due to salon closures, my response would probably have been a mixture of nervous laughter and tears.
