Whether your local spa calls it a Peach Smoothie or a standard vajaycial, it’s one in the same. The vagina facial is one of the newest beauty trends for below the belt. The cleansing and exfoliating scrubs that are typically used remove any ingrown hairs. The typical acid peel that is also included is supposed to remove any dead skin, unblock pores, and let hair grow naturally. While this type of treatment may sound bizarre, it is gaining popularity among many. In addition to knocking off dead skin cells, the vaginal treatment can also combat dryness, improves elasticity, and even tightens your vagina. Having someone who isn’t your partner spend so much time down there could be pretty awkward, but many claim that the benefits out weigh any shyness they feel while getting a spa treatment applied to their vagina.
Vaginal steaming is a trend that is becoming increasingly popular. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow promotes the process wholeheartedly, as she explains, “You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release—not just a steam douche—that balances female hormone levels.” In a less elegant explanation, a vaginal steam is accomplished by squatting over a steaming bucket that is often filled with herbs. Despite Paltrow’s claim that it is something that should be on your maintenance checklist, some doctors advise against it, saying that the additional steam can increase moisture and make you more susceptible to the extra growth of yeast and unfriendly bacteria. Or if you’re not careful, you could wind up with second degree burns down there. Ouch!
As if women don’t obsess about what it looks like down there enough already, the phenomenon of vaginal bleaching has been introduced to the world of beauty below the belt. Many have heard of anal bleaching, but many have now welcomed this trend to their lady parts in order to obtain their desired shade of skin on their vagina. This whitening process is usually accomplished by applying a cream daily, which lightens the skin over time. But applying such creams and lotions down there can be harmful. Many skin lightening creams include hydroquinone, which is a skin bleaching ingredient that can be dangerous to your vagina and other parts of your body. Though this type of cosmetic change may sound appealing, it is best to consult your doctor before going forward with any changes. They may be able to recommend a less harmful cream, or talk you out of it all together.
7. Hymen Restoration
This year in 2015, the story of a woman who gave her father a certificate of purity at her wedding sent the media buzzing. The certificate was signed by her doctor assuring that her hymen was still intact at the time of her wedding. But for anyone, like myself, who can’t commit to this level of self-control, there is a restorative operation that is giving women who have a promiscuous past a new future. Hymen restoration procedures can make it like it’s your first time all over again. This procedure requires going under the knife, but women all over are putting fear aside in order to regain their “virginity.” Hymen restoration is a relatively simple procedure that stitches the hymen back together in order to restore women back to their innocent pre-sex state. While this can be used to spice up a marriage, cover up a moment of lust, and many other reasons, it should be seriously considered before going forward with the procedure.
6. Pubic Hair Extensions
Long ago, pubic hair was not something that was painfully ripped off of a woman via a Brazilian. They flaunted their Au naturale look with confidence. But somewhere down the line, someone decided that women should be bare down there. And women cooperated. But it seems that the pubic hair trend is back, which is also including pubic hair extensions. All those years of waxing may have hindered your ability to restore your full bush, but the development of hair extensions designed specifically for below the belt has allowed women to return to their “natural” selves. But in case you’re still not sold on growing it all out, you can take the landing strip one step further and create unique designs such as the moon or an arrow. Oh, the possibilities!
5. Labia Reconstruction
Every woman wonders what she would change about herself when she takes a look in the mirror: crow’s feet, laugh lines, breast size, etc. But how many actually would change the way they look below the belt? Women are ditching hopes and dreams in favor of a rhinoplasty to design their ideal vagina. Labiaplasty involves restructuring a woman’s intimate area. Some women may go through with a surgical procedure like this for medical reasons, but others are simply opting to redesign their lady parts for cosmetic reasons. But a change below the belt doesn’t come cheap and it is expected to cost between $4,000 and $6,000, and doesn’t come without risks.
We all thought the craze of temporary tattoos ended with our individual childhoods, right? Salons and spas all over have introduced a new popular trend called “vatooing.” Vatoos are airbrushed tattoos that are applied to a bare bikini area. Put your lovers initials or opt for some funky glow-in-the-dark design. But either way, it is sure to make you a memorable lay. Of course, this trend seems completely bizarre, but many women are really taking interest in the new found style and are going back week after week to get a different, creative temporary tattoo.
3. Pubic Hair Dye
The carpet doesn’t always match the drapes. But thanks to pubic hair dye, there will never be any mismatch again. Dye your hair black, blond, or even blue! The hair on your head and below the belt can coincide perfectly no matter what shade you decide. Companies like Fun Betty offer an array of colors to match your natural hair color, chase away unwanted grays or spice things up a bit with all the colors of the rainbow. You can always keep your partner guessing with this trend, and you never know, they may get in on the action, too!
Not every woman can find their G-spot, and for those who can’t find that magical place, a shot has been developed that promises months of enhanced sexual pleasure and heightened orgasms. The G-Shot for your G-spot is a “lunchtime” procedure that involves an injection of a collagen-based filler that results in a larger, more pronounced G-spot. This procedure isn’t permanent though; the filler dissolves within about four months after injection. But because you are injecting something into your body, it is best to consult your doctor before going ahead with any procedures.
What could be better than a glittery, shiny, rhinestone covered vagina? Many women, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, seem to think that nothing is sexier than turning their lady bits into a disco ball. Vajazzling was all the rage a few years ago, and it seems that many are still holding on tight to the trend. It all starts by enduring a Brazilian wax to prepare you for your work of art. Then, temporary crystals are applied in various designs, pictures, and letters upon request to complete the canvas to a one of a kind creation. Although, this will look pretty for a few days, we anticipate that getting the rhinestones off feels like the removal of a band-aid, only worse.
