Looking after my body

10 feminine hygiene tips

  1. Prefer wearing cotton underwear. Rinse them with warm water and iron them
  2. Wear comfortable, loose pants or skirts
  3. Daily wash the sensitive area with plenty of water.
  4. Take a shower instead of filling the bathtub to prevent the skin bacteria from entering the sensitive area.
  5. Shower before and after the gym and sexual intercourse.
  6. Wash not only after but also before using the toilet.
  7. Never sit in public toilets.
  8. After using the toilet, always wipe from front to back to avoid infection of the vagina by the intestinal bacteria.
  9. Daily wash during menstrual days is essential. Regularly change the sanitary napkin or tampon to prevent infections. Avoid using small sanitary pads. It is better to change underwear 2-3 times per day.
  10. Avoid swimming in dirty waters. Change a wet swimsuit as moisture contributes to germ proliferation. Do not lie down directly on the sand or on the sun bed but prefer using a towel.
