Myth 1: Don’t sleep with the bra ON Do you still remember the time when your mom asks you to drop your bra before you hit your bed? A couple years ago, an American actress, Halle Berry, revealed in an interview that she'd been sleeping in a bra since age 16; although Berry boasts an enviable decolletage, it has nothing to do with her bra habits. There’s no scientific evidence that wearing a bra or not wearing a bra will make a difference with what happens to your breasts over time. A lot of drooping and dropping happens mainly because of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. According to experts, over time, perkiness fades as gravity pulls the ligaments in your breasts downward. So, you can sleep with the bra ON! Myth 2: Don’t wash bras too often This is sheer stupidity! Instead of a rare wash, you must wash your bra every time you wear it. Just imagine that the all-day-sweat and germs you would be carrying with your bra as it constantly rubs against your skin and that's why you must wash it every time. Therefore, in order to prolong your bra life, you need to make sure to wash them less often. There are most of the experts who believe that it will damage the fabric when it is washed too frequently.

Do you often feel Neanderthal-ish when you look down, before the shower? A hairy appearance feels quite Neanderthal-ish, don’t you agree? However, shaving the hair off everywhere, even on your genitals, isn’t a wise decision. Most of you must have some doubts about it? Well, hair is one of the distinguishing characteristics of mammals, and it is there for a reason, considering the advantages of body hair, precisely, pubic hair is important before you decide to remove it off each time it grows. Understanding the purpose of hair down under will also help you take a stance in this “Should Shave” or “Shouldn’t Shave” dichotomy. Read on to unfold the valuable reasons you should stop grooming there and start going au naturel. Precious Points on Pubic Hair To get a clear understanding of whether you should protect your pubic hair or not, we have revealed some important points that need to be considered while shaving off your pubic hair. It is a fact that the hair down under protects you from various kinds of bacterial and viral infections. Your genitals are always moist, and this kind of environment can become a breeding ground for germs, in short, that’s what pubes are for. They form a sheath and save your female part from unwanted pathogenic intervention. If you have been removing it off for “hygienic” reasons, this information should be an eye-opener for you. It just needs some water and a mild soap to keep the area clean and not blades and wax strips. Moreover, there’s an advantage of avoiding physical impact. Pubes tend to work as shock absorbers and protect your female part when you indulge in activities like cycling or even horse riding. It reduces the chances of injury down there. Though not apparent to the naked eye, every time you use the blade on your bush, you are naively causing microscopic cuts on the vaginal skin. These cuts get inflamed and increase the vulnerability of your already sensitive part. Also, the itch. Repeated use of razors irritates the skin up to the extent that it gets itchy and uncomfortable. A survey on pubic hair removal says that a staggering 80.3% of women had reported genital itching after removing the hair there. Don’t you think it is time you ditched the razor and the itch for good? Also, if you choose alternative hair removal techniques like waxing, there is still the same danger of irritation and injury. Avoid friction There’s always the risk of friction in between the legs, and it is an added discomfort if you are a bit bulky and curvaceous (not that anything else about your bulk and curves is a problem AT ALL). However, if you know what I mean, these pubes, in fact, offer more lubrication than the empty ground could possibly offer. There’s slightly more sweat produced, but that is only going to lessen the friction there. You do not have to worry about the rash and can stop obsessing over that thigh gap. Keeping it warm Another reason mammals are hairy is to save themselves from temperature shifts. Hair, apart from cushioning, also maintains a constant temperature. In cold countries or on cold days in otherwise hot countries, hair over there helps you keep the genitals warm and cozy. That’s about winters, but the hair’s got some purpose in the heat too. The glands in your pubic hair follicles secrete oily substances, which not only lubricate but also cool the area down. Therefore, your takeaway here is that it simply regulates the temperature and maintains the much-needed homeostasis. Conclusion From the age of the apes, time’s changed, and lifestyle has changed too. Yet, some primal needs like acceptance from the opposite sex and mechanisms like temperature regulation have remained static and unchanged. Although during puberty and the menstrual cycles, these wiry pubes cause slight discomfort, remember that in the long run, it is going to cause you more good than harm. It is time to break the taboos and the silence associated with pubic hair. Talk it off with your doctor if need be and also with your partner. Have you ever ask yourself, “why do I remove my pubic hair, is it for the aesthetics or does keeping them actually make me feel more comfortable and safe?” Have any of the above reasons urged you to stop shaving or waxing down there or have they at least set you thinking? Feel free to comment below and let us know your take on this.
