Having hair in our bikini area is normal. We produce first of all pheromones that attract the opposite sex. First, they’re defending you from foreign bacteria.

Also, we can damage the skin a lot if we shave there.

What we need to do:

  • if you like your skin to be completely clean, use special women’s shaving equipment for intimate grooming, such as a woman’s razor and shaving cream. Because the skin is very sensitive, soap is not the best solution.
  • There are better ways, such as waxing, to get rid of hair down there. If you are interested in alternative waxing techniques, do not go to a professional on your own.

2. Using a loofah

It’s only good to use a loofah when it’s new. It scrubbing off your dead skin cells that get into and stay in the sponge. Usually, you leave the loofah in the bathroom when you’re done with washing and scrubbing. This is the perfect time to grow bacteria.

After washing, bacteria keep growing every time you leave your loofah. So the dirt gets back on your body when you use it the next time.

What you need to do:

  • more often replace it.
  • Let it dry and in the bathroom do not leave it.
  • Using reusable products, such as washcloths.
  • Do not use a loofah, but twice a week exfoliate your skin.

What you need to do: get these pieces with special brushes that will remind you that you can’t skip washing them.

What you need to do:

  • find a safe place away from the toilet to keep your toothbrush.
