If you’re experiencing some troubles with your "femzone"—like itching and dryness—you’re not alone. A lot of Pinays are going through the same thing; most women just don’t feel like talking about it because they're embarrassed to ask for help.
But alas, we’ve got your back! Here are some of the most common problems Pinays have with their intimate areas, and what you can do about them:
It’s natural for your femzone to feel sticky and unclean, even when you clean it properly with soap. Unfortunately, soap and other cleansing products may not be the best for your femzone as they have harsh chemicals and ingredients that can throw off its natural balance.
You’ll still need to stay clean down there, however, so switch to a feminine wash that’s formulated specifically for the femzone's natural balance. Lactacyd All-Day Care is a great option because it’s made with mild, natural ingredients that help provide protection. In particular, it's formulated with natural milk extracts that aids in restoring your femzone’s natural balance. Lactacyd Feminine Wash is powerful and gentle, so it cleans your femzone safely and maintains its natural balance—all while being gentle on your skin.
It can get a little funky smelling down there, for lots of different reasons. In fact, the type of odor you catch a whiff of can tell you what’s causing it, from something harmless like lactobacilli (a good kind of bacteria to have down there!) to a nasty infection.
If the scent really bothers you, consult your OB-GYN ASAP. They’ll be able to tell you whether you need some sort of treatment for your femzone, or if the odor is completely harmless. For the latter, you might want to try cleaning your femzone with Lactacyd Odor Fresh, which uses natural herbal essences to help protect you from unusual odors.
There are many reasons why your femzone feels dry. But a lot of times, it’s likely because of hormonal changes in your body. Puberty, menopause, childbirth, and other conditions that change your body can cause hormonal imbalance—and this can lead to dryness. It’s just a matter of body chemistry.
In these cases, you’ll want to use a moisturizing feminine wash like Lactacyd Extra Nourish. Not only does it help naturally nourish your femzone with natural vitamins, but also uses natural milk extracts that provide moisturizing comfort.
Uneven skin tone
Repeat after us: Every femzone is fabulous, and every labia is lovely! Uneven skin tone just means it has more colors to love.
But if you’d prefer to even out the skin tone of your femzone, you can do that, too! Try using Lactacyd Pearl Intimate, which gently lightens darker areas of your bikini area without using any harmful bleaches. It’s the comfiest way to get your girl looking the way you want.
Some women just have more sensitive skin than others, and the femzone isn’t an exception. If you’re prone to irritation, allergic reactions, dryness, or even pain down there, it could just be that you have a sensitive femzone.
If your OB-GYN confirms this, you’ll want to use a feminine wash that is both mild and provides extra protection for the lady of the house. Lactacyd Pro Sensitive, for example, is formulated with milk, lactic acid, and lactoserum to gently cleanse your femzone to help give it long-lasting itch protection as it provides the nourishment it needs to stay tough against irritants.
When it comes to any femzone issue, however, the best thing you can do is talk to someone about it, first. There shouldn’t even be a stigma around it in the first place! Open and honest conversations with your friends and doctor can help you figure out what you need to keep your bikini area happy.
In most cases, you’ll find out that all you really need is the right kind of feminine wash for your girl. Start using the wash your femzone needs, and your feminine area problems should be a thing of the past.
