Home-made solutions

The internet is flooded with pubic hair removal methods. They make use of some basic and easily available ingredients at home. Please be cautious while resorting to such home-made solutions. Even though the products are the most basic ingredients like honey, sugar or cornstarch, they are not in their purest form and they have gone through a manufacturing and preservation process. A patch -test will be a safer precaution before using home -made solutions. 

A combination one could try at home is called sugaring. A paste which is made up of lemon, sugar, and water is safe, natural, and uses no chemical additives.

Choosing to not remove pubic hair

Choosing to keep pubic hair intact is not considered unhygienic. However, poor hygiene practices can end up causing sweat to be trapped in the area and that can result in odour. Thus it is always recommended to keep the area dry if you choose to keep your pubic hair. Also, do clean the area well with soap and water when in the shower.


You can use any of the above mentioned methods and see which one works for you.  It all comes down to our personal preference. But just remember that the pubic area is a highly sensitive region and use only those methods that suit your skin sensitivity.

If you have any doubt on which method is best suited for you, you can talk to a good dermatologist or health professional for guidance.
