Daily hygiene: top facts

Daily hygiene plays is essential in a woman's health. Here's how to take care of your body and vagina and what you should never do.

Daily hygiene is something every woman should know about. It is important to teach your daughter from an early age. And when she grows up, having her first periods, you should explain the principles of care in her new period of her life.

Here are the top facts that will help you take care of your “second face” effectively and safely.

Fact 1. Daily hygiene requires individualized products.

Liquid soap, unlike bar soap, is inherently more hygienic. However, perhaps you live alone and dry your soap after each use. Then you put it in a dry, ventilated box – of course, in this case, you’re welcome.

Fact 2: The body does not need daily soaping.

Only certain parts of the body need hygiene with washing products. And intimate hygiene is not included, with few exceptions.

  • Hands, as clean hands prevent the transmission of many infections;
  • The butt after each act of defecation;
  • Face – daily washing off makeup with special facial products, but also moisturizing;
  • Intimate area. Wash it 2 times a day with water or a special intimate hygiene product, for example, Dr. Silina foam. Choose it according to your age.

In fact, clean running water is quite enough for most parts of our body. After exercise or training, you can simply take a shower without additional products.

Fact 3. Proper daily hygiene relieves discomfort.

In my experience, women of all ages can most often solve the problem of chronic discomfort in the intimate area by eliminating strings and choosing a quality intimate hygiene product. Detailed info on other common causes of discomfort, including dry vagina syndrome, is in the article Why is my vagina dry.

Fact 4. Wet wipes are not for everyday hygiene.

Wet wipes do not replace water procedures, even the most gentle ones from the “for newborns” series. Of course, if you cannot take care of the intimate area in any other way, it is better to have these wipes at hand. However, constant use can cause discomfort and even disruption of your vaginal microflora.

Fact 5. Daily hygiene after the restroom.

The video shows the format of the most hygienic restroom! So, if you have one in your school or kindergarten, you’re lucky! This is a very cool prevention of dermatitis (pustules) of the butt. For example, in Britain, this problem, as well as bacteria resistant gonorrhea, is very popular. You can’t put your naked butt on a public surface.

Running water is the key, and after the bath, it is crucial to rinse the body and intimate area with running water. To avoid irritation of the vulva mucosa, girls are not recommended to take a bubble bath, just clean water is better.

Fact 6. Daily hygiene and perfumes.

Girls under 18 are recommended to use aluminum salt free Deo, meaning deodorants without aluminum salts.

Fact 7. Hair removal.

Physiologically, an intimate hairstyle is a hair-covered pubis and labia majora. The hair around the anus is not a violation of women’s health, but we like to have a good look…

So, sugaring, waxing, and laser hair removal are safe if you use high-quality products in the hands of a professional! Remember that after such procedures, you need to take care of the intimate area with panthenol products for a week.
