Sexuality and Hygiene
Personal hygiene is important for both you and your partner. It allows you to feel fresh, attractive, and more at ease in your intimate relationship. It also keeps you safe from developing infections and illnesses. Here are some measures to adopt to feel good from head to toe.
Hygiene before intercourse:
Be ready to share beautiful moments and let your body shine with freshness and confidence, every time. Here’s how:
Showering wraps your body with an invigorating feeling of freshness. You can choose a fragrant shampoo and shower gel to leave your hair and skin smelling great. Use CAREFREE® Intimate Wash to cleanse your private area while preserving its natural flora.
Refresh your breath:
Minty-fresh breath is essential. Brush, floss and gargle with mouthwash: the effect is breathtaking!
Remove body hair:
Fingernails and toenails are key indicators of personal hygiene. Regular manicures and pedicures will do the trick.
To complete the effect, spray perfume on your key pressure points: behind the ears, on the wrists, behind the knees, and in the crease of your elbows. Spraying perfume on your private area will lead to skin dryness and irritation. You can, however, apply just a dab on your lower abdomen.
Hygiene after intercourse:
There are some essential hygiene rules for after having sexual intercourse. There is no rush to cleanse, so take some time to enjoy a moment of closeness first.
Here are some things to consider about feminine hygiene after intercourse:
- Always urinate after having sexual intercourse. This will prevent the development of bacteria close to the urethra and decrease the risk of a urinary tract infection.
- Wash your intimate area gently and from the outside only. Your vagina is perfectly able to clean itself. In fact, that’s what vaginal discharge is all about. Make sure to use an adapted intimate wash, such as CAREFREE® Intimate Wash, to prevent infections, mycoses and preserve your vagina’s fragile bacterial flora, which helps avoid bad intimate odor.
- Banish washcloths, they are microbe nests. Use your hands instead. Also stay away from vaginal douches, bubble baths, and highly concentrated essential oils.
- Don’t forget to dry off with a clean towel to avoid moisture build-up, a major cause of fungal infections.
- Put on clean underwear and don’t forget to use a panty liner to avoid the discomfort of post-intercourse vaginal discharge.
