COMPETITION GIVEAWAY [CLOSED] ! WIN 1 IN 5! FEAT. VAGISIL INTIMATE WASHES - HOW TO PREVENT ODOUR + MAINTAIN A HEALTHY pH BALANCE!


HEY BEAUTIES! 

This is quite a different post because ladies...if you have not considered using intimate washes for down there, perhaps now is the time to get that sorted! Featuring Vagisil Intimate washes!

Also, stay tuned later for a competition giveaway that I will be looking to host below. Simply read and follow the rules for your chance to win 1 of 5 Vagisil pH Plus Intimate washes. More details below guys so check it out x 

This topic is so important and essential because the vaginal area is really sensitive skin. It's the most sensitive, delicate and intimate area of our bodies where it has the most sweat glands. Therefore it's so important to ensure that we are using the correct products that have been specifically designed for the area down there. That's why when it comes to Vagisil, their daily care products have been specifically designed to help cleanse, protect and maintain the health of the vaginal area. I think it's time to get into the daily habit of taking more special care of your most intimate skin area. I have been using intimate washes literally on a daily basis and I've found that it has made the intimate area much healthier, cleansed and of course well maintained. It's never too late to start using the intimate washes because just like face soaps for our faces, there's a specific soap for the intimate area. 

There are so many things that can contribute to poor feminine health and issues such as Bacterial Vaginosis, Thrush, etc...hence we use Vagisil feminine washes to improve the feminine health and also help to support a healthy pH balance. It's better to keep that area well cleansed and maintained on a regular basis. Intimate healthy is such an important area that women often overlook. Did you know that 74% of Australian women suffer on average 3 intimate health issues such as odour, dryness or simply itching each year?

Here are some vaginal questions that are quite interesting to know...

  • What is pH and how does it affect my vagina?
pH stands for the power of hydrogen and is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body - pH levels can range from 1 - 14, with 7 being neutral. 

The vaginal area has a unique pH which is essential for a balanced intimate health. If there is an imbalance in pH, it can lead to an overgrowth of the bad bacteria that can cause odour, irritation and infection. So it’s important to keep it at a healthy level.

The pH of the vagina of a reproductive age woman is normally between 3.5 and 4.5, which is slightly acidic pH.  This pH is the result of billions of lactic acid producing bacteria that reside in a healthy vagina (Good bacteria). Many factors can upset the pH of the vaginal area, such as: intimacy, pregnancy, period, douching, spermicides, menopause, excess moisture, wetness, shaving, waxing, even regular soaps and body washes.

  • What can disrupt your vaginal pH balance?
There are a number of things which can disrupt your vaginal pH balance such as; pregnancy, your period, intimacy, hormonal changes, menopause and using soaps or body washes which are not pH balanced or designed to be used on your intimate area. 

  • Why is intimate skin different to that of other parts of the body?
Your intimate area has the most sensitive and delicate skin in your body, therefore it needs skincare products that are designed specifically for all of its unique qualities.

  • Why should you use an intimate wash instead of soap or body wash?
Vagisil intimate washes are pH balanced for the intimate area and specially designed to help cleanse, protect and maintain a woman’s intimate health. Soaps and body washes are however slightly alkaline and can disrupt your vaginal pH balance. Similarly, like you use a special eye cream for the skin around your eyes and a facial cleanser specific for your skin type, you can benefit from using an intimate wash specifically designed for the intimate area.

  • How do you clean the vagina?
You should only ever use products that are pH balanced and designed to be used for your intimate area, such as Vagisil. Additionally, intimate washes are only to be used to cleanse the external vulva area using a gentle application – do not vigorously scrub this delicate and sensitive area. Lastly, as the vagina itself is self-cleansing via discharge you should not douche, as douching can cause an imbalance in pH levels and lead to further intimate health issues.

  • When should you start using an intimate wash?
You can start to use an intimate wash at any time and incorporate it into your everyday skincare routine to help maintain and support your intimate health and keep you feeling clean, fresh and confident.

And with the Vagisil intimate washes below that I'll be looking to discuss, check it out below to read a little bit more about its uses and benefits. 


VAGISIL PROHYDRATE PLUS INTIMATE WASH

Helps to keep intimate skin hydrated & supple.

This intimate wash contains ProHydrate complex which includes a blend of good moisturisers such as jojoba oil, shea butter and Hyaluronic Acid - all of which leaves your intimate area feel very hydrated, supple, soft and very comfortable. If you suffer from dry skin down there, then this particular intimate was may be suitable for you as it allows you to feel super cleansed and moisturised at the same time. It is also super gentle and pH balanced to use on the skin - so therefore it won't cause any further irritations down there. 

Usually the main cause of skin dehydration is simply the lack of moisture - which may be caused by the change in weather, heating and cooling showers and even harsh soaps. When this happens, we can start to feel a tad uncomfortable all over our body, including the intimate areas and hence, it's essential that you get the right balance of moisture. 

POSITIVES: 
  • Comes with a ProHydrate complex. 
  • Gynaecologist tested. 
  • Hypoallergenic. 
  • Suitable for sensitive skin. 
HOW TO USE:

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $6.49 
  • Available at Supermarkets, Chemist Warehouse and other leading pharmacies. 


VAGISIL pH PLUS INTIMATE WASH 

Helps to support a healthy pH balance

This product actually contains LactoPrebiotic which essentially combines Lactic Acid and Lacitol which helps to nourish good bacteria and maintain a healthy vulvar area. Again if you're looking to keep your area pH balanced, then definitely opt for this particular intimate wash. 

When you realise that you have a pH imbalance, it's good to be aware that it's caused by menstruation, menopause, intimacy. pregnancy and even soap and cleansers. We don't know it but once you start to feel some irritation down there, it's good to use a good intimate wash to help support a healthy pH balance. 

POSITIVES: 
  • Clinically proven. 
  • Gynaecologist tested. 
  • Hypoallergenic. 
  • Suitable for sensitive skin. 
HOW TO USE: 
  • Simply apply gently using a washcloth and then look to rinse. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $6.49 
  • Available at Supermarkets, Chemist Warehouse and other leading pharmacies. 

VAGISIL FRESH PLUSH INTIMATE WASH 

Assists in preventing feminine odour down there.

What is great about the Fresh Plus Intimate Wash is that it's actually formulated with Odour Control which means this assists in preventing against feminine odour. It's basically infused with the soothing Vitamin E, chamomile and aloe vera. This is so gentle to use daily and if you're in the market to prevent feminine odour, definitely look to check this product range out.

  1. I am a bit of a cleanliness freak, i wash my hands before eating and cant sleep without a shower, face wash and brushing my teeth, sensitive parts need better care. I always think of it as the place we dispose waste, just like my bins, if i dont clean my rubbish bun ill get fruit flies... (terrible analogy!!). Ive stopped using random body wash to clean my v zone , currently juggling between vagisil and dermaveen :)

  2. When you're dry & uncomfortable "down there", it's hard to feel sexy or confident! You over-wash and wonder why it's not getting any better, hiding away in granny panties and trackpants, and it's a slippery slope to crazy cat lady from there ;)
    A healthy vajay is vital for your mental health - and a great reason to invest in more lingerie!

  4. Being such a sensitive area, it's only natural to want to take extra good care of it. When things go wrong down stairs it is far from a pleasurable experience! I have had one or two issues I've had to get sorted out so it's nice to see a brand dedicating it's products to us women and our feminine bits! :D
