10 New Rules For A Clean & Healthy V

Lactacyd-Feminine-Wash-Range_1

I really only started paying attention to feminine hygiene for the intimate area after I got introduced to Lactacyd last year. From then on, I could feel the difference and improvements having used Lactacyd Feminine Wash every time I showered.

Because I received all 5 bottles previously as well, I shared them with my mum and sister coz good things must share, right? 😀 They like it too! I kept for my own use White Intimate and Soft & Silky. I am unable to judge whether there’s a significant lightening of the area after using White Intimate lol, but I do feel that both provide moisturization, with Soft & Silky slightly more because it has 10% extra milk moisture.

It matters less which of the Lactacyd Feminine Wash variants you use, what’s important is that you use a dedicated feminine wash to keep the delicate environment of the vaginal area in check. I wrote about the other variants in my previous post, do have a look! :) Lactacyd is the Number 1 Feminine Hygiene wash brand in Singapore that is highly prescribed by doctors and trusted by women for over 25 years.

For many, washing our V with our favorite shower gel or soap is a regular part of our daily routine. Washing with soap can cause problems that can go on without the knowledge of the cause. Regardless of how good cleaning with soap may make you feel, it still remains bad for vaginal health; an unnecessary act which is often seen as a necessity.

Of course, besides using a feminine wash that helps maintain the natural pH of your intimate area and protect it from odor and irritation, maintaining overall feminine hygiene is important to overall health. No use doing your best only during cleaning but neglecting other essential habits, right?

Here are my personal tips on how to keep your girl bits clean, sweet & healthy! 😀

Lactacyd: Gentlest Cleansing For Your Most Intimate Area

With me, no topic related to beauty and skin health can be off-limits. Anything that concerns skin well-being, feeling well, and being confident about our skin is worth discussing and sharing.

While a woman averages between five to ten beauty products in the shower, surveys have shown that many women do not clean their vaginal area daily. In Singapore, only 4% of women use a feminine wash. I contributed to the 96%. 😛

Before Lactacyd, the only feminine products I spent on were sanitary pads. Like myself, most women do not spend much on other feminine products, and would only seek help when an infection occurs.

If you haven’t been washing daily, please start now. If you have, what are you using on that intimate area of yours?

Soap and water? That may not be enough!

Some parts of our body are more delicate than others – like the skin around the vaginal area. Lactacyd feminine hygiene washes are formulated specifically for this easily irritated area of the body as it is made to cleanse without causing irritation the way some harsher cleansers can.

Lactacyd feminine washes are pH balanced and formulated to work with our body’s natural chemistry to cleanse and refresh.

Something Fishy

If you have and choose to keep a bushy nether region because of whatever personal reasons, do note that lots of bushy pubic hair can increase sweating, by causing heat and friction. The hair wicks the sweat out to the surface. Sweat alone, vagina smells aside, can already contribute to odor. Sweat when combined with discharge can escalate the natural musk to a whole new level of STANK.

I guess that is why hair removal is increasingly popular these days. Less hair, less problems. Also, having less of a hairy obstruction means higher visibility for signs of abnormality.

Every woman smells different, it’s a natural part of being a woman. During menstruation and pregnancy, pH levels go through major changes too and affect the vaginal odor. After an intense workout, that area may have a stronger, musky smell from the surrounding sweat glands.

However, smelling different and smelling unpleasant are very different things. Nobody wants to smell… erm, fishy?

You can improve your well-being by using Lactacyd feminine washes to maintain the natural pH balance of the vagina, minimize odor and prevent infection.

(However if the odor turns foul, discharge looks unusually yellow/green, it starts to itch or you just don’t smell right, trust your instinct and see your doctor. These may be signs of a vaginal infection.)

Choosing The Right Feminine Care Product

Just so you know, the vaginal pH level is around 4.5. Baby girls have pH 7, it increases to 4.5 during puberty, is unstable during menstruation and pregnancy, and approaches pH 7 during menopause. Source: http://www.lactacyd.com.sg/v-biology/feminine-intimacy-through-life

Strong soaps or body washes can dry out the mucous membrane of the vulva and cause irritation. These harsh products typically are more alkaline and can affect the natural pH of the vagina and disrupt the healthy balance.

All Lactacyd feminine washes are made from natural and mild ingredients for intimate health without any risk of irritation.
