The Do's and Don'ts to Feminine Hygiene

Do's and Don'ts of Feminine Care

It is very important to practice good feminine hygiene and take good care of your intimate area as you would the other parts of your body. Practicing good feminine health will boost your general health as a woman, and by keeping your genitals clean, you will prevent any discomfort and infections.


Keep Your Vagina Dry

The vagina naturally produces fluids that create a healthy environment for itself. Nevertheless, the buildup of excess moisture down there can result in bacteria growth and infection. Therefore, it is imperative that you take the necessary measures to get rid of excessive or extra moisture. These measures can include:

  • Changing out of sweaty or wet undergarments or swimsuits.
  • Thoroughly wiping from front to back after using the bathroom.
  • Switching to breathable cotton underwear from fabrics such as silk, which retain moisture.

Any of these signs could signal an infection or even an underlying health condition.

There is no real reason for you to clean out your vagina. Billions of bacteria work inside the vagina to maintain a healthy balance. If you are healthy and going through the usual period, you do not need any extra cleaning. Risks that have been associated with steaming includes the possibility of developing an allergic reaction to the herbs that are used in steaming. This can lead to stinging, itching, and other discomfort.

Shave Off Your Pubic Hair

Pubic hair is very important when it comes to maintaining your vaginal health. It protects the vulva from bacteria and other unwanted debris. Wax, razors, and other hair removal tools can cut the skin and leave you vulnerable to infections or cause irritation. It is much better to trim them instead of entirely shaving them o
