To anatomize, the vagina is the inner canal inside your body; vulva refers to the outer parts around the vagina, including inner and outer labia (vaginal lips) and the tip of the clitoris. When you look for the best intimate hygiene, it is always the best to switch to vaginal sprays.
A complex colony of good bacteria helps maintain the ideal pH balance in your vagina and keep your vagina healthy. Vaginal douching, intravaginal cleansing with a liquid solution, does more harm than good. There is no scientific evidence to support vaginal steaming and, by the same token, it isn’t a good idea. Negative practices or a lack of care can disrupt the bacterial balance, increasing the risk of bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection, and other vaginal problems.
While your vagina is like a self-cleaning oven, which cleans itself with natural secretions, you need to clean your vulva. When it comes to a body part as sensitive as the vulva, it’s best to stick to natural solutions. Use of scented products — whether they’re soaps, washes, gels, or sprays — can irritate the vulva and vagina. Poor personal hygiene, sweaty undergarments, washing or wiping from back to front, switching from anal to vaginal sex without using a new condom, sharing sex toys, can increase susceptibility to bacterial overgrowth .
Intimate care isn’t only worthy of concern when you start experiencing discomfort. Constant care and preventive measures are important to stay clean and healthy, besides feeling fresh and confident. It is of note that care should not be limited to washing while bathing. It is recommended to cleanse your vulva every time you pass urine or have sex. With the Hi-Life Intimate Hygiene Spray, it is not only practicable but highly convenient as well.
Cotton is the most breathable material you can cover your vulva with, as opposed to synthetic things. It is good for absorbing moisture and drying out the dampness.
