Women’s Intimate Hygiene
We base harmonious living on the ability to listen to your body. Even seemingly small signals are important and worth listening to.
For example, headaches make us stop and rest, rashes make us need to rethink our lifestyle and dietary principles. A woman’s vagina can also tell about a woman’s overall well-being and health.
Even today, intimate health and hygiene issues still seem confusing and women avoid talking about them, so it is important to know how to properly care for intimate areas and not to believe in the myths that have arisen in society.
Choose suitable intimate hygiene products
To avoid bacterial vaginosis, it is important to wash and change underwear after going to the gym or swimming pool.
It is best to choose hygiene products that are designed specifically for the intimate areas and do not irritate it.
Choose natural material underwear
Especially in summer, it is important to choose underwear that comprises natural materials – cotton, linen, so that the skin breathes and bacteria does not form, as well as an undesirable aroma.
Avoid synthetic underwear.
Choose mild laundry detergents
Underwear washed with powerful aroma in laundry detergents and fabric softeners can cause vaginal irritation, change its pH balance and promote bacterial growth.
We recommend it to choose odorless products and as natural as possible.
Avoid using shower gels with a powerful aroma
Synthetic and strong-smelling shower gels can affect the health of your vagina – cause irritation, change its pH balance and promote the formation of bacteria.
Think about your diet
Just as diet can change the amount of good and bad bacteria in the gut, it can also have a significant effect on the vaginal microbiome.
Avoid eating a lot of foods that are dominated by saturated fats and low-quality foods daily, as they can cause bacterial vaginosis. Products high in sugar can also cause yeast infections or milk fungus.
Vaginal dryness can be affected by menopause, but it is also experienced by almost one in five women at a fairly young age.
Vaginal dryness can also be a symptom of more serious problems (thyroid problems that cause hormones to lose balance).
In such cases, we recommend it to go to the doctor to eliminate the problem and not interfere with daily life.
Avoid prolonged stress
We consider stress and fatigue to be the major contributors to thrush. “Candida albicans” is a yeast fungus that is a natural component of the body’s microflora.
We find it in the intestinal tract, mouth, skin, vagina and airways.
Daily, it does not bother us, but when the lifestyle becomes full of stress, nervousness accompanies us every step of the way, the thrush becomes more active.
If the immune system cannot control it, it multiplies quickly. This results in itching in the vaginal area, redness and white curd discharge.
It is worth thinking about your lifestyle so that it does not return. Free time for rest, sleep and physical activity. However, if this infection returns, it shows a weakened immune system.
