6. Sharing towels
Stick to using your own towel because some sneaky STIs thrive in damp, moist environments.
Particularly trichomoniasis, caused by a tiny parasite, which can live outside the body for 45 minutes.
Don’t put your health at risk for the sake of a bald bikini line.
Shockingly, a recent study published in the British Medical Journal found a link between Brazilian waxes and the highly-contagious STI molluscum contagiosum.
And the beauty treatment can also put people at risk of catching herpes, as the virus can enter the body through cuts or damaged skin, and genital warts.
Ripping hair out from the root can tear off layers of skin cells too, leaving you vulnerable to other contagious skin diseases like ringworm and impetigo.
If that’s not reason enough to rock a bush down below, there’s also some less serious consequences that you wouldn’t want affecting your privates such as ingrown hairs, irritated bumps and pus-filled inflamed boils.
