Whether you are going for a pool party or a honeymoon at a beach destination, bikini is one piece that you have for long been waiting to don, right? All through the winters you have worked hard to get that toned look, by maintaining a strict fitness and diet regime. But, there is one thing that can play a total spoilsport to your plans- dark and dull looking bikini area.
Well, this is especially something that every bride-to-be dreads as it is; if for no other reason, then thinking of her first night. Let us give you a quick low-down on how to keep it smooth and silky down there during this sizzling season.
Cleansing and Hygiene
Beginning with the basics, here are a few things related to the hygiene of this sensitive area that you should always remember:
Start with cleansing
The comfort takes the priority when we talk about the bikini area. Excessive sweating can lead to infection, so you should always keep the area clean. Pick a mild cleanser, which is not very harsh on this sensitive area and keeps it infection-free at the same time.
Use wet wipes
During the day, you can also use wet wipes to keep the area clean and nourished. The wet wipes are not only handy for this purpose (as they can easily be stacked in your handbag), but they also leave you feeling rejuvenated. Plus, they keep the bikini area disinfected.
It is important to keep the area dry, as excessive sweating can cause infections, rashes or skin irritation during the hot months. Puffing the area well with a fragrance-free powder can help absorb the excessive moisture. A baby powder is an ideal pick in this case.
Cool and super comfortable, cotton lingerie is perfect for the summer months. It keeps you at ease throughout the day, and is absolutely kind to the skin.
Get Wonderful With Waxing
For many women, the summer beauty regimen is incomplete without a bikini wax. It not just gives you freedom from those unwanted hair, but also gets you beach-ready in your body flattering swimwear. Moreover, hair in the bikini area can lead to bacteria build up, due to humidity and excessive sweating.

Points to Remember
Here are a few points you must remember, to make the procedure less painful and more hygienic for you:
- The aesthetician should apply the wax in the direction of the hair, and pull it out from the opposite direction; otherwise your hair growth will go for a toss. This also makes the procedure less painful.
- Always stress upon using a pre-wax lotion, which helps minimize pulling and tugging of the skin during waxing; and post-wax lotion, which disinfects the area after waxing.
- Make sure fresh wax is being used for the bikini area.
- Ask the aesthetician to use a disposal spatula to avoid infection.
- Avoid using razors for that sensitive area as it can cause infection, increases in grown hair and make the hair growth dense.
