Vaginal Care Guide
Everyone should be taking the steps to take care of their most sensitive areas. Today we wanted to discuss the ways people with vaginas can take care of themselves! When you spend a little extra time practicing vaginal self-care, your body (and your partner) will thank you! Here are 5 ways to pamper your pussy!
Use PH balanced soaps in the shower
Instead of using harsh antibacterial soaps to wash your most sensitive skin in the shower, try using PH balanced soaps. At any local drugstore, you can find a variety of different brands and scents, and likely find one that suits your unique preferences. Regular body washes and bar soaps can strip your vagina of it’s healthy bacteria, leading to unusual discharge, odor, itching, burning, and yeast infections. By using a PH balanced soap in the shower, you are acknowledging your body’s particular needs and taking the time to care for those needs.
Use body-safe menstrual products
Many of us with a vagina experience monthly bleeding, which can make us want to completely overlook vaginal self-care. However, period care is a crucial aspect of keeping your vagina happy and healthy. Many major menstrual product brands use chemicals, bleach, and plastics in their cotton. Just like soaps, all of these harsh chemicals and fragrances have the potential to disrupt the natural pH of your vagina. This is an opportune time to practice self care, and do research on the tampons and pads you are putting near your vagina every month. Many new menstrual product brands are becoming more available, including organic tampons and pads, as well as menstrual cups.
Practice safe sex and Masturbate!
It is extremely important when taking care of your vagina, to ensure you are not just using the correct products, but really connecting with your body and allowing yourself to feel pleasure. You owe it to yourself to feel comfortable and safe when having sex. Advocating for yourself during partnered sex, and encoraging an open and safe enviornment is a great way to practice vaginal self-care. Self-pleasure is another easy way to practice vaginal self-care. Again, research whatever you are putting into your body - including condoms and sex-toys. Your vagina deserves only safe, quality products. Us at Shaggbox want to encourage self-love and self-care through masturbation, which is why we provide only the highest quality, industry trusted, and 100% body-safe toys.
Research your lubes
Whether you're using lube with a partner or solo - it is extremely important to do research on different types of lube. Not only do you owe it to yourself to find a lubricant that is safe, but you owe it to yourself to find a lubricant that your vagina loves! Silicone-based, water-based, and oil-based lubricants are all options available to you, depending on personal preference. We just recommended you practice vaginal care by doing research on the specific brands you’re buying from. Like many other products, lubricants can seriously affect your pH level, particularly because they are meant for internal use. However, lube can be a key element to experiencing pleasure for many individuals. Putting your pleasure and health first is absolutely an act of self-care, and lubricants are certainly a part of that.
Va-bomb Bath Bombs!
Just as we have mentioned with the last 4 points, bath bombs are usually not designed with vaginal health in mind. However, Va-bomb bath bombs change that. With pH balanced bath bombs and 100% natural ingredients, taking a bath will never feel more luxurious. With a variety of different scents and effects, these bath bombs are the perfect way to treat yourself and really care for your vagina.
