Is Removing Your Pubic Hair Safe?

Published

on

A lot of people think that removing pubic hair is the best option and the debate about whether one should or shouldn’t remove their pubic hair has been long raging. Although doctors have advised against it, due to the possibility of getting an STI (Sexually transmitted infection), some women still choose to go completely bare down there. 

Is it hygienic and safe?

59% of the respondents to the JAMA Dermatology survey conducted by Dr. Benjamin Brevor, a urologist at the University of California have confirmed that they indeed choose to remove their pubic hair for hygienic reasons. However, removing pubic hair, especially regularly can cause injuries and cuts that allow bacteria to penetrate. So, what you may think is good to keep you clean down there, might actually be the cause of ‘not so cool’ infections. The only thing you’re dodging here is pubic lice.

the JAMA survey also found that a quarter of the people who use shaving, waxing, sweat, or scissors to clean up down there experience injuries. These injuries include: burns, cuts and rashes.

Well, you should avoid shaving at all costs. First off, shaving can cause the growth of ingrown hair and after a while, you’ll find that the new hair that’s growing has become thicker, taller and darker.

Second, through the survey, it was discovered that more than 60 percent of the injuries were related to cuts, meaning shaving was more dangerous.

Waxing is slightly safer, but still leaves the skin exposed for cuts or ingrown hairs.

Dr. Brever advised grooming less often and removing less hair to minimize the risk.

Our Favorite Star Suffers Nearly Fatal Overdose

Published

Demi Lovato

We have all heard about our favorite celebrities battling eating disorders throughout history, but the worst case of food disorders we’ve witnessed by far is Demi Lovato‘s case.

Demi tells the press that she accidentally fell back into her past eating disorder which led to her nearly fatal overdose. Demi has been battling eating disorders and drug abuse for years. Supposedly, she was getting better and was finding stable grounds, but little did she know that she was getting worse.

The singer of hit song “Confident” made a powerful comeback at the Grammy Awards 2020 with her new album “Anyone“. Her newest album is claimed to be very dear and sentimental to her because, this time, she’s hoping to show her true self and colors in this album. “This is going to be the first album in which I genuinely don’t care about what people think of me,” said Demi.

Demi’s relapse occurred this Friday, which she openly talks about on one of Ashley Graham‘s episode discussing her newfound sense of body positivity. She tells Ashley how she’s extremely tired of running herself to the ground doing workouts 6 times a week as well as following extreme diets that end up wearing her down and stressing her out rather than make her feel good about herself.

Stressing out about your body image specifically is one of the hardest battles a person could overcome. While Demi was said she’s been doing fine, it turns out that is far from true.

Since Demi has been worrying about her body and trying to take care of it, she accidentally overdosed on the 18th of February, leading her quite close to death. She’s been clean and sober for a while now but just couldn’t take the pressure! Documents haven’t stated exactly what drug had she overdosed on, but that doesn’t matter as long as she’s healthy and alive.

It is said that this isn’t the first time Demi had overdosed. One of her very first overdoses was back in 2016 when she was sent to rehab for being diagnosed with both a bipolar disorder and also bulimia. She’d gone to rehab for around 3 months and soon healed after that and went back to her career as if nothing had ever happened.

Demi urges people to understand that she’s neither an alcoholic nor a druggie, she’s just fighting a severe internal battle. She states that once she started breaking and eating again in huge quantities, her other issues like drug abuse came back stronger than ever.

For the time being, Demi Lovato is healthy and well and that’s all that matters to us. She’ll be taking things slow and she’ll do a better job at loving and excepting herself, which is what her new album is trying to shed light on.

Do you think that body imaging and bulimia are serious mental illnesses that need to be addressed in the best way possible, or is this all a way of gaining exposure? I don’t think Demi would joke about such an issue.

Probiotics

We don’t get enough nutrients on a day to day basis, the female body needs more taking care of than we thought. Science proved that we should eat at least 8 green fruits and vegetables per day and I’m pretty sure we don’t even get around to eating one green fruit/vegetable. Greens give us more than just nutrients but are great ways of getting probiotics into your system. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that we need in our body but don’t take. You can either purchase probiotics or take natural probiotics. Natural probiotics aren’t just in the greens but in various foods such as yogurts, pickles and cheese. Make sure you take the right amount of probiotics everyday because it does wonders to your gut as well as enhances the scent of your body!

Doing this daily truly is relaxing and healthy for your skin so don’t forget to do so, especially before showers for softer skin!

Growing older, we no longer find time to recharge and feed our brain by reading because we weren’t taught at school how important it is to read every single day. Our brains get lazier and are more dependent on easier things. You need to activate your brain by reading because with all the new technology, our brain cells are dead. Incorporate this as much as you can, and believe me its a fun way to improve your language and vocabulary.
