We use cosmetics for the face, for the hands and feet,for hair; but for intimate places there is something. The high demand, which cosmetics use for hygiene of delicate places, confirms its necessity. Currently, there are many types of gels and soaps for caring for the delicate part of the body; but does not give up its position to all newfangled means and tar soap for intimate hygiene. But before we begin the story about him, I would like to talk with you about the importance of caring for your own body.
The importance of hygiene for human health
Hygiene as a science deals with observation andthe study of the relationship between human health and all sorts of factors that can affect it. Several types of hygiene can be distinguished: mental hygiene, environmental and personal; and on the proper observance of each of them depends on your health. Personal hygiene is of particular importance for maintaining health; These are acquired from childhood specific habits and skills that not only help to prevent many diseases and problems, but even can affect how a person will be perceived in their social environment. Of particular importance is skin care. Skin covers are the main natural barrier that protects our internal organs and systems from external influences. The skin prevents the invasion of the body of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. It itself is protected by a thin fat film. "Old-aged" fat, mixed with sweat and dirt, creates an ideal nutrient medium in which there is a rapid growth of bacteria and microbes. Clean skin performs its functions much better than dirty. With the help of soap or gels, dirt is easily washed off the surface of the body; the skin is released not only from contamination, but also from an unpleasant odor. Therefore, it is necessary to wash every day parts of the body on which dirt, fat and all sorts of excreta are accumulated: arms, legs, armpits, all folds of the skin and, of course, the area of the genitalia and anus. In this case it is necessary to take into account that the intimate zone must be cleaned with the help of specially developed means.
Why delicate cosmetics?
The fact is that the normal microflora of the vagina90% consists of lactobacilli, which secrete lactic acid. The environment they create kills most pathogens. Soap has a harmful effect on lactobacilli, destroying them. The environment in the vagina becomes alkaline. In this environment, microbes are populated, and not always useful. Consequence - a dysbacteriosis. Hence the emergence of various female ailments: thrush, vaginitis, sexually transmitted diseases. An intimate remedy preserves and helps maintain a normal pH level (3.3). Intimate soap can be both liquid and solid. It moisturizes and necessarily contains antiseptic additives, thereby preventing the occurrence of certain inflammatory diseases. Soap can contain extracts of herbs, minerals, vitamins. Such additives promote healing of microcracks and strengthens blood circulation in tissues. Gels for intimate hygiene are mainly intended for moistening the mucous of the genital organs, and effectively toning it. Gels have more effective bactericidal qualities. Therefore, they must be used after each visit to the reservoir, bath, pool, shower. Most gels contain herbal components of medicinal herbs or oils. When buying a gel, pay attention to the composition, since the concentration of plant extracts in them is usually very large. Gel-lubricants are designed to moisten the intimate zone, they do not require flushing. Use them immediately before sexual intercourse, which should occur without any kind of discomfort, capable of killing pleasure. The lack of natural moisturizing of the vagina during intercourse can indicate that a woman has any diseases or psychological disorders. In addition to soaps and gels, there are other means for intimate hygiene: an intimate foam, produced on the basis of various oils; an intimate spray that does not contain alcohol; napkins, impregnated with a solution of extracts of herbs such as chamomile and calendula; Applicators containing a gel with antibacterial action. Care should be taken to use intimate cosmetics for those who suffer from allergies and have sensitive skin. There are special means for sensitive skin.
