Intimate Care

Intimate care

Caring for our intimate areas is one of the elements to personal or body care. Intimate hygiene is essential in preventing infections and having healthy sexual activity.

No matter the situation, intimate care is key to maintaining a clean body and healthy life. You could perform intimate care in various ways such as washing with mild soap and water or with items for those specific regions. The skin of genitals has a higher level of hydration than the skin of the rest of the body. It undergoes constant friction and is not keratinised. As such, it is more permeable and susceptible to irritations and/or infections and requires special care. We at Lauvette have a diverse collection of intimate care essentials to keep your body clean and healthy!

History of Intimate Care

Hygiene and body care 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.

Ways to do Intimate Care

There are plenty of ways to take care of your intimate areas.

One is to wash only outside of your privates. Like mentioned before, the genitals have the ability to self-clean, which means you do not have to wash the insides. In fact, washing the vagina on the inside can prove harmful. Remember to wash only the outside of your intimate area – vulva, vaginal lips and around the clitoris. Another tip is to wash your privates at least once a day. You should wash your privates with warm water at least once a day, especially after you have emptied your bowel so that there is no transmission of bacteria. Make sure you wash with warm water at least twice, during your periods. Then, when drying, use a soft and fully dried towel to soak up the water. And always wipe clean your intimate area from front to the back, especially if you are using vaginal wipes/ napkins.

Benefits of Intimate Care

Intimate care involves having to take care of your internal and outward physicality.

This is especially in genital areas where a lot of friction takes place. In a society in which people are expected to work long hours and pass on vacation days, there is an underlying belief that we must always be productive – which can ultimately take away from opportunities for self-care.But by taking some time out to engage in intimate care, you may relieve the pressures of everyday life and reset yourself to get back to a healthy point where productivity is once again maximized. Engaging in an intimate care routine has been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate infections and discomfort, reduce stress, improve concentration, minimize frustration and anger, increase happiness, improve energy, and more.
