Are brazil­ian Waxes safe?

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Hot & Healthy -

bikini waxes may seem like the best way to keep your bikini area clean and hair­free dur­ing the sum­mer months, but re­mem­ber—re­mov­ing all your pu­bic hair leaves your vagina more prone to in­fec­tions. You also risk side ef­fects like burns and rashes. Fol­low these pre­cau­tions to avoid a wax gone wrong: ● go to a clean, rep­utable spa where li­censed aes­theti­cians use clean la­tex gloves and clean, dis­pos­able wooden sticks for ap­pli­ca­tion. ● make sure your aes­theti­cian doesn’t dou­ble dip into the wax—she should use a fresh ap­pli­ca­tor for ev­ery dip. ● prep your skin with an an­ti­sep­tic be­fore and af­ter wax­ing, so bac­te­ria on the skin doesn’t get inside open hair fol­li­cles. ● check if the en­vi­ron­ment is clean and ster­ile, and watch how the aes­theti­cian han­dles the equip­ment.
