Kourtney Kardashian Gives Her Sister Khloe a Bikini Wax, Without Knowing Anything About Body Care

If you’re like us, and a good portion of America, you tuned in this past Sunday to watch the second episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Season Two. The world just can’t get enough of those Kardashian sisters and, in this particular episode, the world is also fascinated with Khloe Kardashian Odom’s bikini wax situation.

Kardashian Odom claimed that she’s “scarred for life” after sister Kourtney gave her a bikini wax with a cheap store-bought wax kit. Kourtney Kardashian declared that she used to give herself “the best bikini wax in town” all through college, before she started getting laser hair removal. "She bought this cheapo wax kit!" screamed Kardashian Odom. "But she doesn't say before we heat it up, 'This is the cheapest wax kit you could ever own.' She just starts the deal like it's her thing and she knows what she's doing."

The result? Kardashian Odom was left with a burn after Kourtney re-heated the wax to a temperature that must have been too high and burned off the top layer of Kardashian Odom’s nether regend. According to E! Online, Kourtney said she had no choice because she couldn't find a beauty supply store with the proper kit. Besides, she said, "I was like a pro because when I went away to college, no one would do a good wax. I had to do it myself." Kardasian Odom then did something even more shocking than letting her older sister give her a bikini wax…she treated her burn with BUTTER. Sister Kourtney explains, “I had to butter her with a butter knife because you put butter on burns.” Not proper body care, Kourtney!

It’s a popular old wives’ tale that you should use butter on a burn to soothe and ease the pain. According to Dr. VanRooyen, butter was thought to coat the burn, but it can cause infection and create an environment for bacterial growth." A better bet is to “run the burn under cool water immediately to help remove the heat and put an end to the damaging process. The water will also clean the area, decrease the risk of infection, and make it feel better," says VanRooyen. “Next, you should wrap the burn with sterile gauze or a non-adhesive bandage, and keep it clean and dry. If blisters form, don't break them -- the fluid inside is sterile, and it creates a natural bandage over the burn.” We never thought we’d say this but it looks like Kourtney’s famously bad boyfriend, Scott Disick, had the right idea. Disick gave Kardashian Odom a bag of frozen peas to ice down her wax wound.
