Intimate Facts for Women

A woman undergoes so many hormonal changes throughout her life with each stage bringing a plethora of hormonal fluctuations. Skin care for the private areas is one of the most under addressed issue. Women feel embarrassed to discuss or even ask questions regarding genital hygiene. 

The Body Assents range is specially developed to cleanse and refresh the most sensitive area of your body. The sensitive formulas are gentle to your skin and all the products are 100% Natural, vegan, cruelty-free, preservative free with plant based ingredients.

Is my intimate area actually skin?

Yes! Many women think it’s mucosa (moist tissue that lines particular organs and body cavities throughout the body, including your nose, mouth, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract); but it is skin, which is delicate in make up and needs careful looking after.

What causes irritation to intimate skin?

Irritation can be caused by a change in pH level (how acidic or alkaline something is). The pH-balance of the intimate skin is different to the pH of body skin and is naturally more acidic to prevent and discourage infections. This low, acidic nature is caused by good bacteria ‘Lactobacilli’ that naturally inhabit the intimate area, helping to keep it clean and healthy. But there are times when this delicate pH-balance changes, leaving you prone to irritation and infection.

What can you do to reduce the risk of irritation?

Understanding your body is key to maintaining a healthy intimate environment; for example, if you know you always get thrush at a certain time of the month as part of your cycle make sure you take extra care at limiting irritants at those particular times.

General tips:

  • Drink cranberry juice for cystitis or try cranberry tablets from a health shop
  • Take in plenty of water to flush bugs through the system
  • Urinate before and after sex to flush through any bacteria passed from the vagina to the urethra. If you suffer badly, shower straight after or use a suitable intimate cleansing wipe
  • Avoid alcohol as it’s dehydrating
  • Choose a suitable pH-balanced shower wash like Body Assents Intimate Wash that are formulated to be pH-balanced and hypoallergenic. By washing with these you are encouraging the right pH in the area which is a really good thing

 I’ve heard that if you have an infection or irritation you should wash with water only. Is this true?

If you have an infection the most important thing is to limit irritation to sensitive skin, so advice in the past has been to restrict any use of soap or body washes. But we are talking about skin here and just as you want a clean face or underarms we all want to feel clean in that area too. Body Assents Intimacy wash, is specifically formulated and safe to use to get clean in this area.

So is there a benefit to using Body Assents intimate hygiene products?

Yes. The key thing in avoiding irritation is maintaining a healthy intimate pH and Body Assents products are formulated to be pH-balanced so they promote a protective environment in that area. Body Assents plays a protective role, however may not solve an existing problem (consult your doctor or pharmacist for treatment if you think you have an infection) but may help to reduce the symptoms caused by fluctuating pH levels.

    My spouse and i felt absolutely thankful John could finish off his basic research via the ideas he grabbed out of your site. It's not at all simplistic just to be offering key points which usually the others have been trying to sell. We realize we need the website owner to give thanks to because of that. These explanations you made, the easy blog menu, the relationships you help to promote - it's got mostly fabulous, and it's facilitating our son and us do think this concept is satisfying, and that's truly essential. Thank you for all!

    I simply had to thank you very much yet again. I do not know what I might have implemented without those pointers documented by you on my theme. It has been a intimidating concern in my view, but being able to view this specialized strategy you processed it forced me to jump with joy. Now i'm thankful for your service and hope you really know what an amazing job you happen to be carrying out teaching some other people with the aid of a web site. Probably you haven't encountered any of us.

    I have to show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this situation. As a result of looking throughout the world-wide-web and meeting proposals that were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Existing without the answers to the issues you have sorted out as a result of your entire write-up is a crucial case, as well as the ones which may have badly affected my entire career if I had not discovered your web page. Your knowledge and kindness in playing with all the things was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this specialized and amazing guide. I will not hesitate to refer your web sites to any person who should get counselling on this area.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
