Taking care of your kitty.
Ladies, time for some self care advice.
Your coochie deserves as much attention as your face when it comes to taking care of it. Maintaining proper hygene and going the extra mile to ensure everything is perfectly healthy and balanced down there will minimize your risk of bacteria, infections, bad smell and dryness. Your partner will also thank you!
Here’s what you should do.
-Neveeeeeeeeer use soap/ bodywash on or near your kitty. The harsh chemicals and the high pH level will disimbalance the delicate flora of the vag and can cause long term issues as well as leave you exposed to threats like yeast infection. Vagina is a self cleaning organ. You can use a femine wash though I would advice for simple, plain water.
-Do not use hair removal creams! I would avoid them all together but if its your preffered method of hair removal at least keep them away from your coochie as they will cause a yeast infection!
-Avoid douches at all costs! They might make you feel fresher but they won’t help with odor or cleaness plus they actually increase the risk of infections.
-Drink your water! Do I even need to say more? Just do it… Jesus…
-Cranberry extract. You’ll find it at the drugstore, usually in a softgel form. Cranberries are very beneficial as they strengthen the urinary tract and prevent UTI. Also they will make your kitty taste and smell delish.
-Pinapple juice. This will also help with vag odor and taste.
-Probiotics. Consume foods with probiotics like greek yogurt, kimchi, kombucha, etc… You don’t have to take supplements unless you feel extremelly imbalanced or you’re taking/recovering from antibiotics. If you seek supplements look for the ones that are suitable for the vaginal flora.
-ACV baths. Once in a few weeks pour 1-2 cups of apple cider vingar in a warm bathtub and sit for 20 minutes or longer. This will help lower your pH.
-Always use a condom. If latex condoms make you sore or give you a rash switch to latex free.
Enjoy a healthier kitty babes.
