How to find balance in intimate hygiene
(NC)-Many women do not like to talk about intimate feminine hygiene. They are
embarrassed talking about itches, offensive odors and infections. Instead o
buying curative products, they would rather find an effective, preventive gel to
address their feminine hygiene issues.
Many young girls and women view intimate cleansing as a way to eliminate
germs. If it used to be embarrassing to talk about irritations,
itches, offensive odours, and infections, today's women know more
and require products that better suit their needs.
An inappropriate intimate cleansing
Intimate cleansing is necessary but does not have to be excessive since it
can harm the natural bacteria flora where millions of bacteria blend harmoniously.
a balance achieved between all these bacteria that coexist to prevent infections.
Frequent vaginal douches and the use of aggressive soaps, antiseptics or extended
bubble baths can harm and dry up the vaginal area.
Intimate hygiene is necessary in order to prevent vaginal infections and
maintain good body health, and to curb our numerous doctors' appointments in an
attempt to cure these vaginal infections or other discomforts.
Inappropriate intimate hygiene and products can increase the risk of developing
infections. Gynecologists say that near half of doctors' visits could be prevented
by using a product that is suited specifically for the vaginal area. In addition,
it is recommended to change tampons and sanitary napkins frequently during menstrual
periods since they can potentially increase dampness and temperature. Also, avoid
wearing g-strings, synthetic underwear or tight-fitting pants every day.
You would not use a lotion for your feet on your face's sensitive skin? Or a
body soap to wash your hair? It is important to use a product designed and uniquely
formulated by gynecologists and dermatologists exclusively for women's daily intimate
cleansing? Products like that, already exist and are now available in drugstores.
A balanced pH

and distribution specialist of personal hygiene products, this

Cleansing Gel and biodegradable disposable towelettes. Handy,
compact and easy to bring with us, these thicker and ultra soft

But what is a pH for? An imbalance in the pH level can harm the natural
bacteria flora that can create the conditions for yeast infections
or mycosis. To maintain proper intimate hygiene, it is essential
to comply with the pH level (5.5) in order to preserve a woman's
natural hygienic balance. Not only is the intimate hygiene essential
for our well-being, but it also reduces bacterial overgrowth.
Useful tips for intimate hygiene
By using an effective, preventive product and by following some practical tips,
we can avoid and prevent these infections and recurrent vaginitis. For those who
suffer from these infections, they can be annoying, unpleasant and indisputably
irritating. They can occur frequently but can be cured easily with antibiotics.
Guillaume Barnouin, Canada Blue Skin Laboratories' director, a leader and
innovator in feminine hygiene products, shares a few tips with us on obtaining
and maintaining optimal intimate hygiene:
- Use suitable products for intimate cleansing on a regular basis such
as a hypo-allergenic soap-free ultra soft cleansing basis product.
The Fresh Control Intimate Gel is ideal due to its physiological
pH level of 5.5 that preserves a woman's natural hygienic balance.
- Avoid using scented products and deodorant.
- Change tampons and sanitary napkins frequently during menstrual periods.
- Wear clean cotton underwear and change them at least once a day in case of
excessive perspiration (after physical effort or weather conditions such as
heat and dampness).
- Do not wear underwear when sleeping because the dampness can cause bacterial
- Avoid wearing tight-fitting pants and skin-tight nylons everyday because
they can potentially increase dampness and temperature therefore increase the
risk of yeast growth.
Since an imbalance in the pH level can harm the natural bacteria
flora that can create the conditions for yeast infections or mycosis,
gynecologists recommend the use of an intimate gel like Fresh
Control with a suitable 5.5 pH level that respects natural balance.
