Let's Talk About Personal Hygiene

Maintaining proper hygiene is more than simply keeping yourself clean; it is beneficial to your whole physical and emotional well-being. 

The taboo around discussing feminine hygiene and care is quickly dissipating in the modern day, making it possible to have open discussions regarding feminine hygiene. Feminine hygiene is really about having a clean, fresh feeling and scent down there. 

Your vagina may occasionally smell, which is completely natural. However, if the scent becomes overpowering, disagreeable, or otherwise odd to you, that is not normal.

Let's go over the various causes of vaginal smell, including excessive perspiration, pH imbalance, menstruation, scented soaps, and more. 

Personal cleanliness is essential to avoiding diseases as well as removing offensive smells and feeling comfortable in your skin.

The pH balance of your vagina changes during periods, increasing the chance of bacterial infection, thus maintaining good hygiene is crucial for your vaginal health.

What Are Personal Hygiene Products?

The pH of the vagina should be between 3.8 and 4.5, yet many soaps have double the pH that is advised for the skin. Products having pH values outside or inside of this range may irritate and raise the risk of infections. One of the items that may help you maintain the cleanliness of your private areas daily is feminine hygiene wash. 

Feminine Hygiene Tips

Want to look and feel good all the time? Concerned with becoming the response to the query "What's that smell?" Do not worry; we have compiled some advice for you on healthy vaginal care:

Avoid Douching

Douching affects your vagina’s pH levels, which can lead to bacterial infections. Plus, your vagina has a self-cleaning technique so there’s no real need for douching.

Use Natural Hygiene Products

Next to perfumes and soaps that can dry or irritate your skin, synthetic fragrances are a huge no-no as they are known as allergens that have been linked to dermatitis and can potentially lead to negative effects on the reproductive system. Use mild and natural feminine hygiene products instead.

Avoid Tight Clothing

Wearing super tight clothing is not only uncomfortable but it can lead to excess moisture and heat that leads to a feeding ground for bacteria to thrive. Wear cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothing during your menstrual cycle to stay fresh and dry.

Wash Yourself Properly

Washing your vagina regularly is extremely important because the organisms cling to your body after you have removed your sanitary pads.

Discard The Sanitary Napkin Properly

Disposing of your sanitary pads is an important step. Wrap them properly before you throw them away, so the bacteria and infections do not spread. Make sure you don’t flush it, since that will block the toilet causing the water to back up, and spreading the bacteria all over it. 

Stick To One Method Of Sanitation

Using multiple methods can sometimes give a false sense of low menstrual blood loss and prolonged usage of items, leading to increased chances of infection after prolonged contact.

Your intimates are self-cleaning organs, obsessing over them will not help you in any way, but following these simple steps will keep you and your intimates healthy and fresh. Friendly bacteria are present all over your body, so make sure your chosen product does not strip your intimates of its natural goodness. And to maintain that natural goodness, use Anherb Natural’s natural product Lady Hygiene Wash that will keep you fresh and clean every day.
