The intimate female areas have their own characteristics, which make their care and hygiene different from other parts of the body. Here are some tips and recommendations that will help you.
- Use products that contain neutral cleaning agents that do not alter the pH of the genital mucous and do not cause irritation or dryness.
- Avoid douching (except medical prescription) because they can eliminate microorganisms necessary to protect the vagina and cause dryness. It is enough to wash the genitals externally with water or with a neutral soap or without perfume.
- Do not use a sponge or anything similar to clean the genital area because it can be a nest of germs. The fingers should be used and passed gently through the folds of the major and minor lips, and around the clitoris.
- It is important that the underwear is changed daily and washed with non-aggressive products and rinsed properly. Use cotton fabrics and avoid synthetics as much as possible, to facilitate perspiration.
- Avoid excessively tight pants and underwear, so that chafing does not occur or moisture accumulates.
