Ok, hunties, y’all know by now that your vagina is a self-cleaning organ, fully equipped with everything Mother Nature intended. It’s really quite amazing! So, we don’t need to mess with that, now do we?
Your vulva, on the other hand, is composed of all the parts on the outside that need to be thoroughly washed, just like the rest of your body. Oh, we can hear it already: not like the rest of my body! That soap is so painful! We hear you, and we don’t recommend using conventional soap, full of artificial fragrances. And douching? No way! Medical professionals fully agree that douching can actually harm your vagina, ridding it of healthy bacteria, and you don’t need to worry about washing inside your intimate area anyway. So, moving on!
Instead, try using specially created feminine washes, which are specifically designed with your intimate skin’s sensitivity in mind. They don’t contain the same types of antibacterial products as conventional body washes in order to preserve the delicate pH balance your Vibe needs. They’re not meant to be used inside your Vibe, but if a little bit gets in there, (we know, it happens), it generally doesn’t cause any mass chaos or irritated skin. Thank goodness!
Feminine washes, and the entire market for feminine hygiene products, has only recently become acceptable in our society. Prior to the early 1900s, feminine hygiene was a very hush-hush topic, as was anything addressing the problems of feminine hygiene.
Hunties, we’ve come a long way since then! So, do yourself a favor, and check out these 7 amazing benefits that come from refreshing your Vibe with feminine washes. We’re telling you, you don’t want to miss these!
Helps Restore pH Balance
Your Vibe relies on a delicate pH balance to maintain its health. Strong soaps filled with artificial ingredients and douches can easily disrupt that balance and make women more susceptible to infection. That’s why it’s so important to use a small amount of mild wash to clean your vulva.
Your vagina is naturally acidic which makes it difficult for harmful bacteria to invade your intimate area – which is great! Unfortunately, many feminine washes contain ingredients that make it hard for your Vibe to keep protecting itself. So, it’s paramount that you check the wash you choose to make sure you know what you’re putting on your Vibe.
We’re all self-conscious about our natural scents. Unpleasant body odor has become social death, and we jump through hoops to always look and smell like a freshly cut rose garden.
In reality, our bodies smell like, well, bodies. Between the healthy vaginal mucous and the sweat glands in your groin, your vagina will have its own distinct scent. While it’s completely normal and not noticeable to people who aren’t up close and personal with your Vibe, you may feel like you still want to reduce that smell. That’s ok!
Nothing will completely mask your Vibe’s natural scent without putting your body at risk, but using a feminine wash will clean away excess sweat and urine buildup on the vulva. That, combined with a change of panties, will likely combat the strong odor you’re trying to mask.
However, if you’ve noticed a major change in the amount or texture of discharge or the smell, you should consider seeking medical attention, as it may be a sign of an infection or other illness.
Hunties, you’ve been working hard and stressing out in these trying times! So, you deserve a little pampering!
We’ve all seen the posts on social media about people letting things go while staying home and staying safe. Everyone’s been spending more time in their pajamas and less time fully made up. And that’s totally fine, no judgement here! Even the celebrities have been posting pictures of themselves relaxing and waiting out quarantine with messy hair, no makeup, and sloppy clothes.
But you don’t have to let everything go! Personal feminine hygiene is just too important to let fall by the wayside. Consider adding a feminine wash to your daily beauty routine to spice things up and give your Vibe a little treat. There are plenty of reputable brands in the multi-billion-dollar feminine hygiene industry to choose from, so do your research and find the one that’s right for you and your body (cough, Femme Detox, cough).
Relax After Working Out
You just went for a jog? Lifted some weights? Did a couple of pull-ups? Congratulations! That’s awesome! While you’re wiping down all that sweat and feeling proud of yourself, debating whether or not to jump in the shower, think a little more about your intimate skin.
If your hair’s sweaty, you can bet your Vibe is sweaty too! While your head’s exposed and can easily dry off, your vagina is… not so lucky. The balance of good bacteria down there is maintained through the natural environment, but a buildup of sweat, or any kind of wetness, in that area with damp clothes can enable the good bacteria to multiply in a distinctly unhealthy way.
So, just hop in the shower, for your Vibe’s sake! Just be sure not to use any feminine wash in the inside of your Vibe! Why? Because the good bacteria stop bad bacteria from entering and causing an infection, and the mucous you naturally produce also keeps the vagina too slippery for invading bacteria to stick to, sweeping it all out as discharge. We told ya (and we weren’t lying) – your Vibe is really quite amazing!
After swimming in a pool, lake, or the ocean, you’ll want to rinse off that chlorine, sand, or sea salt ASAP!
Anyone with a Vibe has likely experienced having some of that leftover residue in their intimate area, and we all know it’s unpleasant to say the least. Whether you’re sporting a bathing suit, wetsuit, damp clothes, or are taking a dip in your birthday suit - sand, salt, and chlorine gets everywhere and can make your Vibe pretty uncomfortable.
So, when you jump in the shower to wash your beautiful locks, make sure to wash your intimate area too. Anything that disrupts the bacterial balance can lead to serious infections and other conditions. Grabbing a feminine wash is a gentle, easy way to clean the vulva, and make sure nothing weird gets in your private place.
Hunties, we know it’s hard to feel fresh and fabulous during your period. Seriously, who does? You’re cramping, bloated, sluggish, achy, and you just want to snuggle up with a box of chocolate.
We don’t blame you! You have to deal with that for multiple days in a row, every month, for, on average, 40 years? So unfair! But that’s just human reproduction for you. So, for all of the truly amazing things your Vibe can do, this is the price we pay for the miracle of life.
Mother Nature doesn’t care if you don’t like it and nothing can change that, but you can make things a little better for yourself. If you’re feeling gross from all that blood, a little bit of feminine wash will go a long way toward helping you feel refreshed and reclaiming your feminine feelings of cleanliness!
Aging is a beautiful thing, but we know it can be hard to remember that sometimes. Especially when you start wrestling with the dreaded hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and stages of menopause. Not to mention the fact that, between three stages in all, you could potentially spend years going through menopause, dealing with a whole range of unpleasant symptoms.
But don’t get overwhelmed! When it all starts to feel like a little too much, try using an all-natural feminine wash to gently clean and moisturize your intimate skin and refresh your soul. The lack of estrogen during and after menopause leads to less mucous being produced in the vagina and overall dryness. But the good news is that some feminine washes can also moisturize and rehydrate that yoni!
When you’re not feeling fresh and fabulous, reach for an all-natural feminine wash and give your Vibe a little much-needed pampering. It’ll be way worth it!
