Don’t miss your annual exam.
A visit to your OB is the best time to ask vagina-related questions. Regular checkups will help you identify the early signs of vaginal infections and problems that may end up affecting your reproductive system.
Replace your old undies.
It's likely that you've overgrown your old ones, and you're doing your lady bits a disservice by trying to make them fit. Your vagina needs to breathe, especially if you’re moving around a lot. Locking it up in tight panties creates friction and rubbing, which can irritate and darken your skin.
Thongs aren’t better either—they make it easier for bacteria to reach your vagina. Your best option is to go for well-fitting cotton panties since the fabric is more breathable.
Pat, don’t rub.
You’ve heard it a thousand times: Rubbing your skin is bad. While this advice is geared toward wrinkle prevention on your face, the same holds true for your vagina. Treat this sensitive area with proper care and pat gently.
Follow a feminine care routine.
Do you have a hygiene routine for your vagina? If your answer is no, it's time to start now. Since vaginas naturally contain bacteria and yeast, it needs a specially formulated feminine wash like pH care. You can also use feminine pads in the middle of the day to keep yourself fresh down there.
Use a proper feminine wash.
When it comes to washing, most girls think that regular soap is enough. However, your vagina has a different pH level than the rest of your body. Once again, use a gentle wash like pH Care—it's formulated with gentle ingredients and has the right pH level of 5 for your vagina.
