Should I remove hair in intimate areas?
This question is considered quite controversial. On the one hand, many argue that depilation is not just a way to become more sexual and attractive: hair removal is a hygienic procedure. Opponents of removal, however, believe that hair in certain places of the human body is not just there. In particular, the hair in the pubic zone protects against harmful bacteria. It’s not for nothing that our grandmothers didn’t even know the name of hair removal in intimate places, and they didn’t have any problems with this: infections were less common, and women gave birth much more often than today, when many women diligently get rid from the "natural barrier" in the intimate area.
However, convincing studies showing that depilation of the “delicate” areas of the female body leads to an increased likelihood of a urogenital infection does not exist. Therefore, hair can be safely removed (if, of course, you want it).
Tip!You can restrict yourself to only the correction of hair: remove them on the sides, and in the center align with a special trimmer. So you reduce the risk of irritation to a minimum.
The skin in the intimate areas of the human body is tender and sensitive. Therefore, choosing a method of depilation can be extremely difficult.
What are hair removal methods?
The skin in the intimate areas of the human body is tender and sensitive. Therefore, to choose a method of depilation can be extremely difficult. As a rule, the following methods are used to remove hair in intimate places at home:
- shaving with the machine;
- hair removal with special creams;
- hair removal wax;
- use of a household epilator.
Let's talk about the pros and cons of all the above methods.
Tip! To make hair grow slowly, regularly wipe the skin with a walnut decoction: it helps to increase the time between the depilation procedures.
Most women use a razor to get rid of unnecessary "vegetation". This is really very convenient, but to achieve the desired result, it is important to observe a number of conditions:
- you can shave hair only on steamed skin, it is advisable to do it after a bath or in the shower;
- You can not refuse special creams and gels for hair removal in intimate places: they soften the hair and protect the skin. Otherwise, irritation and inflammation may occur;
- to protect delicate skin from irritation, hair should be shaved not against hair growth, as many do, but diagonally.
The main advantages of the procedure include complete painlessness, cheapness and the ability to quickly remove all unnecessary hair.
The main advantages of the procedure include complete painlessness, cheapness and the ability to quickly remove all unnecessary hair. But there are also disadvantages: shaving with the help of a machine often causes quite strong inflammations in the intimate area due to the fact that the blades damage the delicate skin. Therefore, the machine is not suitable for everyone: for women whose skin is particularly sensitive, other methods are suitable.
Tip! Use only new machines for hair removal in the bikini zone! If the blades are blunt, you risk damaging the skin quite a bit. If it still happened, wipe the wounds with hydrogen peroxide or another disinfectant: this will avoid the development of inflammatory processes.
Wax for depilation
In order to remove hair with wax, you will need wax itself, special spatulas for its application and strips of non-woven material.
The procedure is extremely simple: wax is applied to the hair, a fabric strip is glued to it. After that, the strip should be broken with a sharp movement. It would seem that no difficulties should arise. However, waxing also has a number of subtleties:
- hair must be at least 5 mm in length: otherwise the wax will not be able to “grab” them;
- The strip breaks down against the growth of hair in a sharp movement. Not all women are able to cope with such a task: when the wax is torn off the skin, quite painful sensations arise;
- One day before waxing in intimate places, the skin should be thoroughly treated with a scrub: this will make the procedure more effective.

With the help of wax, you can remove hair for a long time: wax, unlike a razor, does not just cut the hairs, but removes them along with the root.
However, due to the fact that the procedure is painful, many women simply can not carry out such an "execution" over themselves. In addition, the intimate areas of our body have a rather complicated "relief", therefore, to cope with hair with the help of wax is a rather difficult task. If you want to try wax depilation of intimate areas, visit the beauty salon: masters apply special formulations to the clients' skin that reduce soreness. In addition, you can learn the basic principles of wax depilation and ask the master all your questions.
Tip! There are special strips for hair removal in intimate places: wax has already been applied to them. Such a strip is glued to the skin like a patch and removed with a sharp movement. Using strips of wax greatly simplifies the process of hair removal.
The most popular device for hair removal in intimate places, of course, is the epilator. Hair removal in intimate areas with an epilator is quite a painful procedure, so it is advisable to buy a special cooling model or epilator that can work in water. If your hair is thick and dark enough, you should refuse from the epilator.
Apply the epilator is very simple: he grabs the hair and removes it from the root. As a result, the skin remains smooth and tender for a long time. In addition, thanks to the regular use of the epilator, the hairs will become more and more thin, and the pain will eventually become less intense. However, in order to make the procedure more effective, it is necessary to regularly exfoliate the intimate area and carry out depilation after the bath, when the skin becomes soft and steamed.

Cream for hair removal in intimate places seems to be one of the easiest ways to cope with excess vegetation and achieve the perfect bikini zone. After all, what could be simpler: the cream is applied to the skin, and after a few minutes it is removed along with the hairs. However, this procedure has a number of nuances:
- Depilatory cream is not for everyone. If your skin is irritable and sensitive, you should give up the cream: it contains aggressive chemicals;
- cream can not be applied to the mucous membrane: it can provoke the development of a serious inflammatory process;
- With the help of a cream, only thin hair can be removed. In addition, their length should reach 3-4 mm.
