If you laugh while crying, you’ve probably heard the phrase, “You’ll get hair on your butt at least once. As can be seen from this expression, ‘hip hair’ or anal hair is recognized as a negative image.
There is also a hospital that promotes “Animal Hair Removal.” But why does it have hair on its butt in the first place? Do you mind if I get rid of it?
To this question from people worldwide, British specialist Karan Raj, who has 5.1 million followers on TikTok, answered. He advised, “There is actually an important function in the fur of the anterior door,” and “Never shave.”
“The surrounding skin, including the hair follicles, also contains apocrine glands (sweat glands in the skin), which secrete oily substances,” he said. “The antrum hair absorbs or traps these oily substances, adding lubrication to the skin.”
In other words, these lubricants helped reduce irritation or rash caused by friction on the skin, and the hair in this area also played a role.
In addition, these oily substances are also the leading food for “beneficial bacteria” around the reproductive organs such as hips. Karan Raj explained, “The beneficial microorganisms are also called microbiomes, and the more beneficial these microorganisms are, the healthier they are.” Lactobacillus is also a type of microbiome.
The microbiome is highly related to diseases and is widely used in developing cosmetics and treatments. As Karan Raj said, forming healthy microbiomes in the body is also known to help boost overall body immunity.
