The women often believe that they are giving proper hygiene on intimate area. Something totally false.
This is because the intimate area needs exclusive hygiene and products that contain ingredients that do not harm it, unlike other parts of female body.
Therefore, here are some mistakes that women usually make related to feminine hygiene.
1.- Wash or clean yourself in the wrong direction
If you usually clean and wash the vulvar area from the back (from the anus) forward, you should stop doing so. This is because doing this can cause bacteria to enter your vagina and you may suffer an infection.
2 You don’t use the right soap
Using a scented soap to wash your intimate parts may cause your pH to change, which can cause you to feel itchy and dry that area of your body. It is best to use a special soap for that area.
3.- Do not change your sanitary napkin
Not changing your sanitary napkin regularly can cause bacteria to appear in that area of your body and suffer from infections. It is recommended to make the change every 4 or 6 hours.
4.- Do not use the appropriate underwear
For example, using lace, lycra, polyester, silk garments, among others, usually causes that area of your body not to ventilate and suffer from inflammation.
