The importance of proper vaginal care should not be just about preaching. It is time to translate into actual action. Get a dedicated cleanser for this delicate zone like how you would do for your face.
If time spent is relative to the level of importance, our face is demanding too much attention from us. An average woman invests more on beauty products, both financially and emotionally. There is always room and need for a facial scrub to remove dead skin, oil cleanser for make-up, cleansing gel for quick wash ... but nothing for the most intimate part of your body— vagina.
It is evident that V-Zone (vaginal zone) is the crux to great physical and social well-being but little effort has been made. Other than the monthly sanitary needs, women do not spend much on other feminine products, including feminine wash. They deem it as medicated and only needed when there is an infection of sorts. This misconception is the biggest hurdle towards better overall well-being. If you think regular body wash is good enough, you may be wrong.
A healthy V-Zone
The pH level of a healthy vagina should range from 3.8 to 4.5. This creates a conducive environment for good bacteria (Lactobacilus acidophilus) growth and to prevent infection. Most ordinary body wash have a higher pH level and are generally more alkaline. They destroy the natural acidic protection layers and lower your resilience against bad bacteria. The pH level will also go up to 7 when one reaches menopause. And during times like menstruation and pregnancy, extra care should be taken to keep it clean.
A daily commitment
You can improve your well being by introducing a daily feminine hygiene wash into your regime. Not only does it protect you from infection, it also maintains the natural pH balance of the vagina.
