Fact of the Saturday – Health Reality or Unhealthy Myth?

Think that having a wax is painful, but in the end its worth it because you feel beautiful? Well, what if I told you that both a Bikini or a Brazilian Wax could give you a Sexually Transmitted Infection?

How is that possible?

Well, this is caused by your skin creating micro-tears, if it makes contact with viruses (that can squeeze through). This can possibly happen if you have already made contact with a partner or stranger/s.

Signs of these include redness, inflammation, peeling and bleeding.

Even though waxing itself is safe, it’s never a good idea to make sexual contact on the same day as you have had a wax or if your skin is suffering irritation from the process – best to leave it one day after or decide not to have contact if the irritation is still there. Better to be safe than sorry.

My name is Sez. I am on the Autistic Spectrum; I was diagnosed when I was two years old. Being Autistic can be tricky; I easily jump into conclusions and miss important skills that are part of my social life. However, my "condition" hasn't stopped me from doing the things I love. I am currently studying Performing Arts at a Drama school in London. I'm a hard worker and a dreamer. Also, I love creative writing and writing lyrics. I'm a keen adventurer and would love to travel the world. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoy actingmylife. :)
