The 5 Do's and Don'ts of Feminine Hygiene

In today’s modern age, women balance their professional lives with their domestic responsibilities and proper feminine hygiene can easily drop off a busy woman’s radar.

Do not worry or feel bad, it is an all-too-common occurrence that many women need to work on.

The 5 Do's and Don'ts of Feminine Hygiene

Do not be shy to talk about your personal care routine, it should be a top priority for you.

If you do not have the foggiest idea of where to begin when it comes to developing a proper feminine hygiene routine, read on – this article is just for you!

Below are the top five do’s and don’ts of feminine hygiene:

1. Regular Bathing

The ideal way to maintain proper feminine hygiene is by showering or bathing twice daily – it also counts as self-care.

That will help keep your vagina free of toxins, dirt, and bacteria. Your skin is a living organism capable of absorbing anything it touches, including dirt.

If your lady parts are more sensitive than most, opt for showers instead of a bath. Bathing can irritate your vagina and lead to UTIs and thrush – particularly if you use bath bombs or other non-natural additives.

2. Be Careful When Shaving

Many women shave the hair that grows on and around their honey pots because they do not like how it looks – or because their partner does not.

Pubic hair is essential for overall vaginal health as it serves to protect the vulva from unwanted particles and bacteria. Razors or other hair removal tools can irritate and damage the skin, making you more susceptible to infection.

Instead of removing the hair, trim it back with scissors to a comfortable, yet healthy, length.

3. Use Feminine Hygiene Products

Use the best feminine hygiene products with natural ingredients like tea tree oil to keep your vaginal health in good condition.

Regular soaps can be too harsh for your intimate areas because they have a pH level designed for the skin surface, which is 5.5. Vaginas work a little differently, a healthy vagina can have a pH balance from 3.8 to 4.5.

Use a pH-balanced feminine wash to prevent upsetting the delicate bacterial balance of your intimate areas.

4. Visit Your Gynecologist Annually

Annual wellness checkups are an essential part of preventative healthcare for all women.

Make an appointment with your gynecologist annually to keep up with the necessary tests and screenings, such as Pap smears and STD panels.

Use that visit to address any concerns you may have regarding your reproductive or sexual health.

If something does not feel right, make an appointment immediately and do not wait for your annual one.

5. Go Commando

In our cavewomen days, wearing some form of undergarment was necessary to prevent creepy crawlies from entering our nether regions.

Panties and undergarments became part of our wardrobes as time passed. Before we knew it, we were being laced up and tightened into the most awful girdles and uncomfortable underwear known to women-kind.

If you want to take care of your lady parts, ditch those horrible panties!

Studies have shown that going commando (particularly while sleeping) can prevent the collection of added sweat and moisture "down there" and reduce your chances of developing bacterial overgrowth and yeast infections.

If commando is not an option, choose breathable cotton panties to help stimulate airflow.

In Conclusion

Your vagina plays an essential role in your health. Proper feminine hygiene will help to safeguard your lady parts and keep them healthy.
