Once we get into puberty stage, our body starts transforming and changing and it’s something that can’t be avoided. The first thing all women notice is the appearance of pubic hair, then our breasts start growing, we get the first period and the rest is history.
Everybody goes through the same process of puberty stage but the results are different for every person and each gender. Some have less hair, others have more, some have smaller breast, other bigger and we’re not all happy with the results.
Mother Nature made us all different for a reason, but we always think we know better and try to correct her “mistakes”. When it comes to the pubic hair stage we all feel that “less is more” and we all try to remove them, thinking that it’s not just visually better looking, but more hygienic as well. There are different styles of pubic hair waxing, but once you read this article you might think twice about your next waxing appointment or throw the razor out for good. Maybe you knew, maybe you didn’t, but pubic hair waxing is the worst thing you can do to your private parts, and here’s why.
If you’re overweight waxing can cause some serious complications!
According to studies 80% of women have experienced complication after pubic hair waxing at least once in their life. One study examined 333 women aged 16-40 and the results were not in favor of pubic hair shaving. It revealed that overweight women have a two times bigger risk of experiencing some kind of complication after waxing or shaving their pubes with the risk going up three times if they completely remove pubic hairs.
Going completely bare can cause viral infections!
The LA Times, two French dermatologists and a global health researcher from Emory University hinted that the trend of completely removing pubic hair could be the main reason of increased cases of sexually transmitted molluscum cantagiosum virus over the last decade.
If you have an autoimmune disease your risk of catching one is higher!
Removing pubic hair can be a great risk for some. According to the Oxford Journals people suffering from an autoimmune disease have a higher risk of contracting an infection after waxing. They mention a case of a young Australian woman who hadn’t properly treated Diabetes 1 and contracted Streptococcus Pyogenes and the Herpes Simplex Virus after complications from a Brazilian wax.
Science says: Don’t remove your pubic hair unless you want an STI!
It’s even been revealed that having sex right after pubic hair waxing, and this goes for men and women alike, can increase the risk of developing an infection, which is why the Journal of Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery recommends that everyone should wait at least a day after pubic hair waxing or shaving before involving in a sexual intercourse.
Be careful not to burn your skin!
If you follow the trend of waxing pubic hairs you’ve probably noticed how hot it can get, it can even burn your skin. Waxing is painful on its own so burning your skin while you do it can be excruciating. Be careful and adjust the temperature so that you don’t cause extra troubles. Considering how complicated it can get, you might want to consider ditching the practice altogether.
You can actually get your skin ripped off, it’s not a myth!
This is a thing and can even happen to you, no one is immune. The risk is higher for people suffering from eczema or psoriasis, or even those who have a more sensitive skin. If you’re on blood thinners you might want to reconsider waxing because it can definitely cause skin ripping. Unfortunately, even if you’re not in any of the above mentioned risk groups you can experience “skin lifting” so why cause unneeded problems.
Shaving pubic hairs can cause the big itch
Both men and women know this but let’s just refresh your memory in case you’ve forgotten. Shaving pubic hairs can cause burning and itching in your northern region and it can get pretty uncomfortable after a day or two once the hairs start growing back. And it’s not just dry shaving we’re talking about, even shaving in warm water with loads of lotion can leave your skin irritated and itchy.
We hope that this article has helped you decide not to shave or wax pubic hairs anymore. They grow for a reason and you shouldn’t remove them unless you want to complicate things. Plus we think the au naturel look is making a comeback and you wouldn’t want to get behind on the latest trends, would you?
