With an active lifestyle which involves daily traveling feminine hygiene has become a important issue.I got serious about it after my marriage when I got infected with bacterial infection twice. It was scary because repeated bacterial infection can lead to sterility, cancer and other health problems. Developing healthy habits is a must and I am listing down few of the products which are a must have while I am traveling, in fact they are important for me while I am home too.
Wet Wipes –
I don’t know how people lived without it before.Other than cleaning babies bottoms wipes comes so handy in mopping up small spills in the car , cleaning my keyboard, removing my makeup.I always use them when I come home after watching a late night show and I don’t have the energy to use makeup remover.I just use the wipes which have gentle cleansing agent and are enriched with moisturizer to prevent dryness.
Intimate Hygiene wash :-
I received VWash Expert Intimate hygiene wash which I am yet to try.There are few things which are yet to be taken seriously by most of us especially the use of soap for our private parts. Most soaps and gels are designed to maintain the natural pH value of the skin which is 5.5.However, the normal pH value of healthy vagina ranges from 3.5 to 4.5.If soap is being used it can disrupt the natural vaginal floral which results in multiplication of harmful bacteria.My gynae advise using only hot water but I still think its not enough and I prefer using products which are specifically meant for cleaning of the intimate zone.
Few things which one should keep in mind while using the Intimate Hygiene wash are as follows:-
1) One must clean private parts once a day atleast.
2) Don’t use sponges to clean it as it can cause minor injuries
3)The towel used should be soft and completely dry .
4)During periods change pad every 3-4 hours atleast.
Dusting powder – Nowadays intimate washes are available in powder form as well. They contain Clotrimazol which is an antifungal medication commonly used in the treatment of fungal infections . It is apt to use on humid days when you know that the sweat will cause your thighs to rub against each other. It can also be used when you are using a pad because the wings of the pad scratch. If you are suffering from any kind of discharge that may make your undergarment wet and again cause irritation and scratchiness, this powder is an ideal product.
