Woman getting ready in bathroom, self-care for your vagina

#1 Keep it clean

It’s important to keep the area around your vagina clean and dry. Avoid using perfumed soaps or products, as they can disrupt the natural pH balance of your vagina and lead to irritation. Instead, use warm water and a gentle, unscented soap to clean the area. Check out Pixie’s beloved foam wash!

#2 Wear breathable underwear

Tight or synthetic underwear can trap moisture and heat, leading to irritation and infections. Choose underwear made from breathable materials like cotton, and avoid wearing it for extended periods of time.

#3 Avoid douching

Douching can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in your vagina, leading to irritation and increased risk of infection. It’s best to avoid douching and let your vagina clean itself naturally.

#4 Use sustainable menstrual products

Reusable menstrual cups and discs are safe, hygienic, and don’t use harsh absorbency chemicals or mess with your natural pH levels. They can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time and can hold more menstrual fluid than tampons, making them a convenient and practical choice for all women.

#5 Stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water can help to flush out toxins and keep your vagina healthy. It’s also important to drink enough water to keep your urine diluted, as concentrated urine can lead to irritation.

#6 Don’t forget to trim

If you have pubic hair, it’s important to keep it trimmed and well-groomed to reduce the risk of irritation and infections.

#7 See your doctor

It’s important to get regular check-ups and screenings to ensure that your vagina is healthy. If you experience any unusual symptoms, such as abnormal discharge or persistent irritation, be sure to see your doctor for proper evaluation and treatment.
