When you want to clean the fragile area that is the vulva, a few rules must be followed. Here are 3 tips to cherish your privacy.
Do not wash excessively: Contrary to what one might think, excessive hygiene is harmful for the vulva. By cleaning it more than twice a day, you risk unbalancing its fragile flora and therefore creating a breeding ground for yeast infections and vaginosis. So keep in mind that a simple daily wash with soft, slightly soapy water is more than enough to take care of your sex.
Choosing the right products: When it comes to personal hygiene, choosing the right personal hygiene product is essential. By using cleansers and intimate soap with unsuitable or too abrasive PHs, you risk once again disrupting your flora. The PH of the vulva being acidic (between 4 and 6), it is important to use an intimate cleansing gel with a corresponding PH in order to respect its fragile balance. Avoid at the same time, perfume waters on the genitals which contain allergenic agents and alcohol.
Adopt the right gestures:
- The vagina is a self-cleaning organ . It eliminates its impurities daily via secretions. This is why it is not necessary (and even harmful for the flora) to wash it. Exit then the vaginal douches which could completely disturb your intimacy.
- The vulva needs to be cleaned but with extreme gentleness . Always wash only with your hands: washcloths and shower flowers are real breeding grounds for bacteria and should not be in contact with your privacy. Use lukewarm water and wash it with a little of your intimate soap, then rinse thoroughly with water. Once your intimate toilet is finished, dry your vulva gently with a clean towel, without rubbing. The vulva is a delicate organ requiring the greatest care. Diet, hormonal issues, sex and underwear regularly put a strain on his well-being. This is why it is important to adopt certain gestures to take care of this precious area.
Good toilet practices: When you go to the toilet, remember to always wipe from front to back (from the vulva to the anus). This will prevent the bacteria present around the anus from ending up in the fragile ecosystem of your vulva. Similarly, during romantic intercourse and if you practice anal sex, do not go from the anus to the vagina without changing condoms. After each report, whether you are alone or in pairs, whether there is penetration or not, remember to urinate. During sex, some germs can travel up the urethra. By going to urinate right after, you expel them before they have time to cause you any concern such as cystitis.
Choosing the right clothes and underwear: This choice is also important when it comes to the well-being of your vulva. Indeed, underwear made of synthetic material such as polyester or elastane does not allow the skin to breathe and therefore opens the way to infections. For clothes, it's the same thing: jeans or a pair of tights that are too tight compress the vulva and create an area conducive to the maceration of perspiration. So choose cotton underwear and favor clothes in which you feel comfortable. If you practice a sports activity during the day, take a few intimate wipes with you to feel comfortable.
Treat vulvar and vaginal dryness: If you are prone to vulvar dryness and intimate irritation, use a repairing intimate serum . Applied daily to the vulva, this moisturizing balm helps keep it hydrated, soft and comfortable. All cosmetics, even natural ones, are not always tolerated by your mucous membranes. When you use natural intimate care, massage oils and lubricants, make sure they have been tested under gynecological control. This guarantees you perfect tolerance and compatibility between your intimacy and the product.
