Feminine Hygiene Tips to Feel Fresh and Clean

So the following tips and advice are here to help you maintain an overall good hygiene routine and keep your intimate area gently cleansed and ready for what’s next:

  • Shower on a regular basis

Showering helps refresh your body by removing dead skin cells and sweat produced throughout the day. You can use shower gel or a feminine wash. Using an exfoliating shower gel once a week will gently peel away all impurities and leave your skin extra soft.

  • Wash your face twice a day

Wash your face every morning and night, with a cleanser adapted to your skin type. For dry skin, a cream cleanser helps remove all impurities without over-drying. For oily skin, a cleanser with acne-fighting ingredients helps control oil production.

  • Always use deodorant

Perspiration is common during adolescence. If you don’t keep it under control, it can lead to embarrassing body odours. That’s why deodorant is your best ally! You should wear deodorant every day, and remember to apply it on clean dry skin.

  • Take care of your hair

Daily shampooing dries your hair out as it gets rid of its natural oils. To take care of your hair, choose the right shampoo! For greasy hair, look for shampoos with balancing ingredients, effective for removing excess oil. For dry hair, look for smoothing and hydrating shampoos. Don’t forget to comb your hair every day to stimulate blood flow to your scalp, and strengthen hair follicles.

How to care for your intimate area every day with Carefree

  1. Wash your intimate parts daily: Feeling comfortable in your own skin 24 hours a day takes two things: Confidence and great feminine hygiene. That’s where Carefree Duo Effect Intimate Wash or Cleansing Mousse with Green Tea and Aloe Vera comes in. The specially designed pH-balanced formulas are enriched with moisturising and refreshing ingredients. Start your day shower fresh with either one. Wash your intimate parts at least once a day, with an intimate wash.
  2. Don’t use ordinary soaps or sponges: Ordinary soaps can disturb the natural vaginal environment, and cause itching and irritation. Also, when washing your intimate zone, don’t use sponges. They are harsh on delicate skin and may hold bacteria in their creases. Simply use your hand. Wash only the exterior of your intimate parts. Your vagina is perfectly able to clean itself. Make sure the area is totally dry after washing. You can use a soft towel and change it every two days.

  3. Treat yourself to all-day comfort with panty liners: Once you’re smoothed from the shower, add a liner to your panties, the incredibly thin, breathable and comfortable, Carefree FlexiComfort panty liners leave you feeling fresh all day. Plus, it’s a great way to keep your favourite panties clean. Need a little extra protection? Try Carefree Large Panty Liners with 12-hour odour control.

  4. Freshen up on-the-go: Long day at work? Gym? Dinner date? If you’re always on-the-go, here’s a great way to stay clean and fresh. Pop some Carefree Duo Effect Intimate Wipes into your purse or gym bag. These fresh wipes, with Green Tea and Aloe Vera, are just the thing to keep you feeling revitalised. They are designed to match your natural pH for a gentle clean on-the-go. Try to change your panty liner to rediscover clean and fresh panties whenever you need it.

  5. After visiting the toilet: Wipe from front to back to prevent moving harmful bacteria from the anus to the vagina, which can cause urinary infections. If you’re having vaginal discharge, you can simply use a panty liner. It fits discreetly in your panties and gives you a long-lasting feeling of freshness and security! For extra cleanliness, use intimate wipes.

  6. Intimate care during your period: Never keep a sanitary napkin for more than 4 hours unless you’re using one adapted for the night. Wash your hands before you change your sanitary napkin. Of course, this does not exempt you from washing them afterwards!
