What is the best form of hair removal during pregnancy?

Keeping hair removal in pregnancy is not always a very easy task! In addition to having many myths surrounding this way of maintaining intimate hygiene, there are also other obstacles to leaving legs and also groin up to date! There are those who say that waxing in pregnancy is risky, but did you know who is not quite like that?

Hair Removal in Pregnancy Can it or not?

Hair removal in pregnancy can and should be done. The pregnant woman should only surround herself with care when she decides to remove the hair at home or somewhere of preference. Any part of the body can continue to be shaved, including the genital and groin. Just take some precautions, for example, with the use of waxes. It is only recommended to use hot and cold waxes after 12 weeks . This is due to the pulls that this technique provides, mainly in the pelvic region and also in the groin.

In addition, epilation in pregnancy with hot or cold wax, must be done in an extremely clean place . The risk of igniting or infecting the epilation site is a possibility, therefore, all hygiene is necessary in these procedures. The pregnant woman has a higher risk of contracting diseases, due to low immunity, so there is little care. The pregnant woman’s skin is also much more sensitive. Including by the stretch of the belly and also by the hormonal discharge. With the approach of delivery, removing hair with depilatory wax can become more painful, due to the increased sensitivity and blood supply of the site.

Hot wax

Waxing with hot wax is the most recommended by doctors, because the temperature of the wax makes the pores more dilated and facilitates the removal of hair. Some beauty clinics have a special wax for pregnant women.

These waxes are completely natural based on beeswax , which would cause less irritation at the site. Cold wax sheets are effective, but this epilation in pregnancy can cause not only more pain, but also greater irritation of the site. Even if the woman already uses this method before pregnancy, it is recommended that she prefer the hot wax to avoid folliculitis (inflamed hair follicle) and also ingrown hairs.

Other Hair Removal Options in Pregnancy and More Care

The blade is a good option for those who are pregnant and do not want to go through pain. In addition to insurance, it is a method that can be used at home. The big trick is to be careful not to cut yourself. The intimate region, for example, is a delicate place for this type of hair removal. In addition to not being able to correctly visualize where the blade is passing, with the growth of the belly, it becomes even more difficult to shave!

Epilation with Razor

Incidentally, anyone who uses the wax or razor at home may have problems with hair removal during pregnancy. So it is always advisable to do this with the help of someone! At such times, it is worth asking the husband for help or summoning the trusted epilator to perform the delicate task of epilating the groin.

Legs can also be a problem at the end of pregnancy . If you want to do this on your own, try sitting up to avoid the risk of tipping over and falling.

Depilatory Creams

Depilatory creams are excellent! But they should not be used in any way during pregnancy. They should be used after pregnancy, as they have a very strong formulation for pregnant women. Armpit, groin and legs should leave the depilatory cream aside.

Choose another form of hair removal during pregnancy to ensure good health. Laser hair removal is also widely used by women, but in pregnancy it should be avoided as well as hair removal using depilatory creams.

Electric Epilators

There are some electrical devices that remove hair with the same technique of removing by the root. They can and should be used without fear, as these devices have no risk of pinching or cutting the skin.

There are also techniques with line and springs, however for the intimate region it is not advised. There are also machines that make hair look neat, without risks like electric epilators. Always do the epilation with the utmost care and the maximum hygiene that you can.

Hair Removal For Childbirth

It is worth remembering that epilation for normal delivery and cesarean delivery does not need to be total. Partial waxing of the groin can be done without the need for total hair removal .

This hair removal can be done either with razors or with wax. But don’t worry if you don’t have time to shave for delivery. They usually do this procedure in the maternity hospital if there is an emergency and the delivery has to happen in a hurry. When in doubt, do epilation every two weeks to avoid problems or embarrassments.

When in doubt, the best thing to do is to talk to your doctor about the best form of hair removal during pregnancy. It will certainly help and give the best option so that there is no risk to the health of the mother and baby.
