Congratulations! You have decided you are ready to buy yourself a ring. Rings are a great way to feminize you hands.

I spend time daily reading the online forums on crossdressers.com.

What can possibly be better than applying makeup to your freshly shaved face before getting crossdressed? For me, it is getting my face soft and smooth. For a smooth face, try exfoliation.

When I decided to try my face, I did some research to discover a great exfoliating scrub. Allure magazine has its annual reader’s choice awards, which helped me find a wonderful scrub: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. This is Sami’s Pick for a smooth face. Read More
