applicator every time they apply the wax.

Hepatitis B and C are also potential hazards-as people sometimes bleed
after having a bikini wax-but the risk is small.
1. Find a therapist who uses individual
bikini wax pots, or uses a new
bikini wax applicator
each time it's dipped into the pot.
2. Don't fall for the "hot wax kills everything" line, because it

or a few stray hairs left from bikini waxing,

else's ingrown hair and then uses the unsterilized tweezers on you.
1. Always check that tools are sterilized and laid out on a tray.

container-before she starts tweezing.

to be handled with caution.
Like any instrument that penetrates the
skin and comes into contact with blood, the needles can carry
viruses, such as HIV.
Contracting hepatitis B or C is more of a risk, as the viruses can
survive for days or even weeks on the surface of a needle.

skin should be avoided.
1. Bring you own pumice, pedi paddle or cuticle stick

watch our for therapists who reuse
cuticle sticks-fungal infections can be passed on this way.

cuticle sticks and nail files between treatments.
