Bikini Waxing - What's Hot?  

Bikini waxing is a means of shaving the pubic area that has grown in popularity in the past few years. In fact, not only women shave their pubic hair, there has also been an increase in the number of male pubic shaving customers in most hair removal salons. It is usually men using bikini style swim bottoms who head for pubic shaving.

Though bikini waxing is helpful in making you look more sensuous and attractive, you should not get a bikini wax if you suffer from psoriasis or any skin condition, if you are a diabetic of if you are under Retinol or Acutance medication. It is in fact better to ask your physician before going for a bikini wax. It is also not advisable to get a bikini wax if you are menstruating or pregnant as the pain associated with a bikini wax is increased because of increased sensitivity to the pubic area.

As a bikini wax can be painful, you could consider taking ibuprofen or aspirin an hour before waxing to reduce the pain. It is better not to do a bikini wax on your own; have it done by a professional as this reduces pain. If the pubic hair is too long, it has to be trimmed to about ¼ or ½ inch. Don’t swim or sunbathe for 24 hours before the wax and a few days after waxing.

After waxing, if there is some redness or bumping, apply ice to the region for relief. If there is some ingrown hair, ice it and then add anti-bacterial cream to prevent an infection. If you feel uncomfortable not wearing underwear during waxing, you could choose a skimpy pair like a thong and have the aesthetician work around the underwear. You will have to lift your underwear if the waxer needs to wax a covered area.
