Women usually talk about skin care, hair care routines and of course about makeup. But they never talk about taking care of intimate parts. Maintaining intimate hygiene is extremely important not only to feel fresh and clean but also to prevent some unpleasant and dangerous health problems that may arise. Here are some basic rules to maintain intimate hygiene:-

source : internet

  • Do not wash your intimate area with soaps or shower gel

Most soaps and shower gels are designed to maintain the natural pH value of the skin, which is 5.5. However, the normal pH value of a healthy vagina ranges from 3.8 to 4.5. Using ordinary soap can disrupt the natural vaginal flora, thereby enabling the fast development and multiplication of harmful bacteria. As a result, some unpleasant problems may appear like irritation, itching, pain, odor, abnormal discharge or infection.

my recommendation :- honey pot intimate wash

  • Washing only the exterior of intimate zone

The vagina has the ability to ‘clean’ itself, so it isn’t necessary to wash it  inside. Actually, washing the vagina on the inside can be harmful. You should wash your intimate zone only on the outside – that means that you should wash only your vulva, the vaginal lips and the area around the clitoris.

  • Wash your intimate parts at least once a day

    You should wash your intimate parts at least once a day with hot water. It is recommended to wash your vagina after every emptying of the bowel (defecation) to prevent transmission of bacteria to the vagina. When you have your period, make sure you wash it twice a day with just hot water.

  • Don’t use sponges or gloves

    Sponges and gloves can cause minor injuries to the soft and delicate skin of the vagina. When you wash your intimate parts, it is enough just to use your hand.

  • Don’t point the running water directly to the vagina

    When you’re washing the intimate zone, don’t let the water to run directly toward the vagina. Let the water run down from the top of the intimate zone to prevent entry of bacteria inside.

  • Always use a soft drying towel

    The towel that you’ll use after washing should be soft and completely dry. You should change your drying towels every 2 to 3 days and should be intended only for you – don’t let anyone else to use it.

  • Wipe from front to back

    After visiting the toilet, wipe with the toilet paper from front to back, i.e. from the vagina towards the anus. This way you won’t be spreading harmful bacteria from the anus to the vagina, which can lead to bladder infections and even some really serious problems.

  • Wear cotton underwear

    Cotton clothing and underwear enables the skin to breathe. Unlike cotton, synthetic materials prevent the circulation of air, increase the humidity in the intimate zone and thus create an ideal environment for the growth of harmful bacteria. Wear comfortable cotton underwear everyday, and save the lace panties only for special occasions. Also, avoid wearing tight jeans and pants.

    Cotton underwear is a must. Silk-lace underwears may look fancy but they aren’t as hygienic as cotton any day. The intimate wash definitely sounds good.
