Skin care has been a hygienic practice that dates back to 1500 B.C. when the ancient Egyptians practiced bathing regularly. The Ebers Papyrus, a medical document from about 1500 B.C describes combining animal and vegetable oils with alkaline salts to form a soap-like material used for treating skin diseases, as well as for washing. The word hygiene comes from Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health, who was the daughter of Aesculapius, the god of medicine.
Since the arrival of the Industrial Revolution (c.1750-1850) and the discovery of the germ theory of disease in the second half of the nineteenth century, hygiene and sanitation have been at the forefront of the struggle against illness and disease.
To start off, synthetic chemicals have the potential to harm animals and plants with which they come into contact. Should the synthetic chemicals from a synthetic product seep into the ground, they could have dire consequences on surrounding ecosystems. Secondly, the processes associated with manufacturing traditional skincare products put a great deal of stress on the environment. This is because the extraction of certain ingredients (aluminum, lead, etc.) requires mining. Plus, synthetic chemicals can cause irritation to the skin as opposed to natural ingredients or chemicals.
Mining produces a great deal of pollution, ultimately leaving a negative carbon footprint on the environment at large. Natural skincare products forego the use of such ingredients, and so don’t necessitate mining. And because they use only natural ingredients, they cause no harm to the surrounding plants and animals.
Menstrual hygiene is vital during a woman’s monthly cycle. Be sure to change your sanitary pads every four to six hours. Using the same pad for an entire day is not only unhealthy but can also lead to irritation, infection or even UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). And you can use a good organic and biodegradable sanitary pad or menstrual cups, both of which are environmentally sustainable as well. The menstrual cup should be sterilised before every use, emptied as frequently as possible, and stored in a hygienic way after use. Go for the appropriate size of the cup as per your age, flow, and depth of the vagina.
And wash the vaginal area properly at least twice a day. This will help in removing all the harmful bacteria and ensure that your genitalia are clean. A natural intimate wash can be used to clean the area. Use panty liners to help absorb the excess discharge and ensure better hygiene.
