It's important to take care of our bodies that keep us healthy and able to enjoy life. We women are always on call for everything, especially mothers. And if we get knocked down by any infection, we still have to work, so let's get some helpful tips on how to keep our precious healthy and happy as women.
We love summer as much as you do but all this heat and moisture isn’t so happy-making for your vagina! And if you’re vagina isn’t happy, nobody is!
Monistat knows that better than anyone so here are our top X tips for a happy vagina:
1) Go Commando:
You heard that right – take off those panties and let your vagina breathe! It needs fresh air just like the rest of us so go bare and let your vagina “air out.”
2) Wear Cotton Panties:
Okay, you may not want to go commando all summer long so if you’re gonna wear panties, make sure they’re cotton – cotton helps absorb moisture and keeps things dry down there.
3) No Scented Soaps:
We all love a good summer-scented soap but they’re full of chemicals and perfume that can be drying and harsh on skin. Your vagina is a sensitive flower so there’s no need to use anything to make it smell like one! Plus, our vaginas are self-cleaning so all you need is some warm water and unscented products, if you must.
4) Use Condoms:
Not only do condoms protect against STDs and unwanted pregnancy but they also help keep your vagina’s pH level in check so all of those good bacteria can live comfortably and do their jobs fighting off UTIs and yeast infections.
5) Remove Wet Bathing Suits:
Wearing a wet suit leaves residue of pool chemicals and bacteria from oceans and lakes, not to mention the moisture and heat that’s a breeding ground for yeast infections. If you’re not drying off quickly from the sun, make sure you change into dry underwear or new bathing suit immediately.
6) Pay Attention To Your Vagina:
Yes, your vagina needs lots of TLC. And if something doesn’t feel right, address it quickly – don’t wait. Summer’s a big season for yeast infections, which you can easily treat with Monistat (it’s OTC so you can find it at any drug store), or you may need to see your doctor to check out what else is going on “down south.”
Always check with your doctor before purchasing any OTC medication.
