A Woman's Guide to Better Intimate Care
We go on regular salon visits to keep our locks hairflip-ready and use only the best of creams to keep our skin as nice and supple as possible. We put in the hours at the gym to stay in shape and trade in most of our long nights out for some well-deserved beauty sleep.
We spend much time and effort maintaining ourselves. Sometimes however, some parts may unfortunately not get the same amount of attention.
Being out of sight, this delicate part of your body may not be getting the care it deserves.
Your intimate area is one. Here are some tips to give it the TLC it needs.
When shopping for new underwear, make sure to choose cotton. Cotton underwear dries faster and is more breathable than synthetic ones. This prevents the growth of unhealthy organisms that thrive in a moist environment. If you can’t do without your lace or silk panties, then use one with a cotton lining in the crotch.
Drive period woes away
Movies will have you believe that all you need during that time of the month is a bar of chocolate, some tampons or pads and a classic chick flick. Get real, Hollywood. There’s a lot more to our monthly periods than that. Feminine hygiene is especially important during these days. Our intimate area becomes slightly more alkaline, throwing the pH level off balance and making us more susceptible to infections.
To keep our intimate area healthy during monthly periods, it is important to change sanitary pads often and to avoid leaving tampons in for too long.
What you eat affects your intimate area more than you know. Make sure to keep a balanced diet to maintain your overall health. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains and avoid foods with high fat, salt and sugar content. Always listen to your body and feed it when it is hungry but practice moderation. You can still have your favorite dessert just try to not have too much of it.
Practice good feminine hygiene
Stay away from soaps that are heavily fragranced or use harsh chemicals. Even better, just ditch the soap and pick up a bottle of feminine wash. There’s nothing better for your intimate area than a product specially designed to address its needs.
When choosing the right feminine wash, look for one that has natural ingredients and prebiotics that support your intimate area’s natural pH balance and maintain its normal flora.
There you have it. Follow these simple tips and you can then say that you’re giving your intimate area the best of care.
