There is a reason behind the
existence of all of our organs and bodily features. As humans evolved,
their body evolved as well, developing a number of features in the
process, which later on help it survive the ever-evolving times.
now, you might be sick and tired of body hair and it might seem
redundant to you, but evolution says something different. In fact, our
body hair is there to regulate our body temperature and help out the
process of sweating, which is one of the most crucial processes for
maintaining the normal body temperature. But what about pubic hair?
pubic hair comes with a function. It acts as a sort-of cushion, if you
like to see it that way, and protects the skin from abrasions and cuts,
while at the same time, it keeps the vaginal opening protected from
dust and bacteria.
People have developed a lot
of ways to remove pubic hair, some of which include waxing, laser
removal, electrolysis, shaving, etc. While all these methods have their
pros and cons, women usually choose to shave as it’s inexpensive and
fairly easy to do.
But on the other hand, shaving is
also known to make the hairs thicker and increase their volume. This
claim has no grounding in truth and you can safely say that it’s just a
myth. But still, there are other cons with shaving that we would like to
cover in this article and make you familiar with them. Here we go:
can’t have a smooth pubic area if you don’t shave quite frequently, and
if you do, you’re risking getting micro-abrasions or cuts on the skin,
which can make the area vulnerable to infections.
- Razor burns are a thing with shaving.
- Shaving increases your risk of having ingrown hair, which is uncomfortable and painful.
an STI is easier as hair removal in those areas leads to the removal of
a skin membrane, which makes it easy for the bacteria to enter the
body. But this risk is generally present with all hair removal
- You are under a risk of developing folliculitis in
your genital area if you’re shaving. That’s a condition that makes your
skin full of tiny red bumps that contain pus in them. This condition is
absolutely treatable and it’s not harmful, but it can lead to scarring
