Using shower gel to wash your vagina or wash directly with water? You might think that this method will be clean, but actually makes it worse. The shower gel and water is weak alkaline, which is different from the pH value of your vagina, this will cause dryness and other problems. Okay! Let’s talk about our private and intimate area, which we often find it a bit ‘hard’ to talk about. Oftentimes we would just find some references from the Internet because we are too shy to talk about it – Not everyone can understand what we experience especially when it has something to do with our intimate area. Fret not! Infections and odour are mainly from bacteria. One out of every two girls is facing these problems, so it is very common.
Basically, in order to maintain our intimate health, we must ensure that these 2 important aspects remain balanced: the pH and bacterial balance. Most studies indicate that our vaginal pH can vary according to our age and the stage of our menstrual cycle. In fact, the bacterial populations shift depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle, and it can have different microbiota based on ethnicities. Besides, infrequent changing of underwear, usage of synthetic underwear material with many laces, wearing inappropriate underwear like thong and G-string and wearing close-fitting clothing can only compound irritation and infection to our intimate area.
Here’s what you should know that not all intimate cleansers or washes are good for our intimate part. Studies have shown that there is an association between the use of intimate washes and a 3.5 times higher risk of bacterial infections, and a more than twice higher risk of having a urinary tract infection (UTI). These products may be preventing the growth of good bacteria required to fight off infection. The V of women is weak acidic. The pH is around 3.8 to 4.2, which is healthy and suitable for the survival of beneficial bacteria. These beneficial bacteria will help us remove those harmful bacteria. Therefore, it is very important to maintain a good pH balance in there. That means we need to get a gentle cleansing foam that is designed exclusively to take care of our intimate area’s natural pH balance.
I got myself this LEVerne Feminine Wash and I started using this since early August as it claimed to improve all kinds of problems as early as one week of usage. So, my first impression about this product is – non-irritants! It really does not irritate or make my private part ‘suffers’ with dryness. The product itself contains 40% aloe vera which has the effects of moisturizing, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It keeps my intimate area moisturized, and maintain the pH balance. Moreover, this LEVerne Feminine Wash is a non-toxic product as it has no fragrance and preservatives. Really suitable for daily use as it does not irritate the skin. I feel much better and refreshed every time I use LEVerne Feminine Wash. No itchiness, excessive discharge or foul odours (especially during menstrual). I think this is a great intimate wash which I definitely going to use it for a long time. It is more than enough for one pump per use, and one bottle can be used up to 2 months.
