Women Are Ditching Razors And Going Au Naturel, New Research Shows
But it's not just our make-up bags that have been made redundant due to Covid-19 - our razors are not seeing much action either.
A study by beauty app Cosmetify found that women's attitude to body hair has dramatically shifted since we entered a second lockdown, with almost half (an astonishing 45 per cent) no longer buying hair removal products such as razors and wax strips.
This new-found acceptance of body hair may be in correlation with the lack of socialising (and dating) in our lives. With casual sex off the table due to two lockdowns, and with couples reportedly less intimate than before, some people have felt less need to keep their body hair groomed.
The boss of Reckitt Benckiser, which owns Durex condoms, has said people are having less sex because of the coronavirus crisis.

While we may not be wearing make-up on a daily basis anymore, beauty is still a major mood booster, with people choosing to get new products online to look better in Zoom meetings.
