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.
