Christmas Wishlist: Ideal Gifts for Vaginal Care
This holiday season, you must be listing down gifts to buy for your family and friends, shopping left and right, searching for the perfect presents to get them. Giving gifts and spreading love is what makes the holidays so fun. However, do not forget that you also have your own needs, especially your vagina.
Here are some awesome ideas on what you can get the lovely women (yourself included) in your life for Christmas:
When it comes to choosing the perfect underwear, your vagina has a preference: cotton. That is why most underwear comes with a thin strip of cotton fabric in the crotch area. This type of underwear breathes and absorbs moisture, making it ideal to clothe your lady parts with.
This is why cotton underwear makes the perfect gift for the women in your life. Don’t forget to grab some for yourself, too! When you go to the gym, do not forget to wear cotton underwear. Trust us, you will want that extra layer between you and germy gym equipment!
If you are into snacks, make sure you choose healthy ones. Snacking on yogurt with live cultures sure helps boost the good bacteria in your vagina. Good bacteria, as we all know, is fantastic for preventing vaginal problems such as yeast infections. Just be careful not to munch on the super-sugary kind because then you could also be more susceptible to vaginal infections.
Some presents do not have to come in beautiful wrapping paper or expensive boxes; some come in the form of check-ups. As for your vagina, an annual exam is important for discussing possible health problems. During your annual exam, this is the perfect time to inquire about any questions you might have about your vagina.
During the holiday season, taking long baths is a great way to relax – especially after a long day of shopping. However, your scented body wash may be awesome but it should not be anywhere near your vagina. Keep in mind that soap can be really drying to the sensitive skin around your vulva. Since the vagina is self-cleaning, you only need to rinse it with warm water and you are sure to keep things clean down there.
If you really do not feel right about going soap-free, however, you may choose to use a plain, gentle, unscented soap instead.
If you are a gym-goer, you have to make sure that you are using the proper gym clothes. Choose gym clothes that are not too tight – you want to allow your vagina to breathe. Vaginal infections are most likely to occur if your vagina is damp with sweat.
If you are a frequent rider, you could also be at risk for genital numbness, pain and tingling while cycling. Do not forget to purchase padded shorts to keep the vagina pain-free during your workout.
