Why You Should Reconsider That Bikini Wax

July 17, 2015 1 min read

There is no denying that the final results of a bikini wax feel phenomenal. Or so I'm told. I'm far too wussy (and shy) to try it. Now, I'm not so sure I ever will! When we wax (or shave) we open the pores and open ourselves up to infections. Our pubic hair exists to protect us. It is there to “protect the fragile, delicate mucosal tissue of the vagina and the urethra,” says Whitney Bowe, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. “These openings are lined by very delicate tissue that needs protection from allergens, pollutants, irritants, and infectious microbes. The hairs act like a protective barrier.” “Waxing not only pulls the hair by the root, but it can also disrupt the [follicle] that helps guide the hair from the root to the surface," she says. "So when a new hair tries to grow from the root, it can get stuck beneath the surface, causing an ingrown.” Think about it, this is the most sensitive part of our body and we're paying to open ourselves up to infection? Besides, according to some gynos, salons and the like -- no matter how clean and reputable -- have been known to double dip with regards to wax. Even if that isn't true, how do you know? And ingrown hairs, man -- they just suck. I'm not saying we all need to go bush crazy and grow it all out but we should at least think about it before we risk our health for something cosmetic. Don't believe it any of these risks? Ask your gyno! Source: Shape
