Intimate hygiene: an act of love towards yourself

Women are the most unpredictable human being in the world.  Indeed, their body changes – and, together with it, their mood too – several times in a lifetime, influencing their interior balance and physical well-being. Protecting this delicate balance is the first step to live a healthy and harmonious life.  

Taking care of your intimate hygiene is an act of love and respect for yourself and your partner.

Discover with us the rules of intimate hygiene and prevention of infection that help you feel protected day after day.

For you
  • Wash your intimate area at least once a day and rinse thoroughly. Washing your genitals too often could cause some adverse effects, such as the destruction of protective bacterial flora.
  • Use a specific and non-aggressive intimate cleanser, which does not alter vaginal bacterial microflora and does not irritate the skin and mucous membranes. Indeed, many cleansers can alter vaginal pH and destroy “friendly” bacteria.
  • Wash your intimate area, by cleaning from the vagina towards the anus. This way, you avoid transferring bacteria, that can cause infections, towards the vagina.
  • Dry accurately your intimate area, since humidity favours bacterial and fungal proliferation.
  • During menstrual periods, after sexual intercourse, sport, sauna, namely after all those activities that increase perspiration and make your body more vulnerable to infections, it is advised to pay particular attention to your intimate hygiene.
  • Wash your hands properly, as they are the main carriers of bacteria, and pay attention to the hygiene of bathroom fittings, especially in public toilets.
  • Use cotton underwear, which allows your skin to breathe, and avoid wearing synthetic or tight clothes, because they increase the humidity level and, consequently, the risk of infections.
  • Follow a healthy diet that favours a regular intestinal functioning, and take yoghurt and fibres every day, if necessary. This is important because intestinal infections often lead to vaginal infections, as well as a decrease in immune defences.
For the couple
  • It is important to take care of the hygiene of the couple. Therefore, be sure that your partner also pays attention to his intimate hygiene, and be sure that you both have taken all necessary measures to prevent the transmission of infections and venereal diseases, having a “ping-pong” effect.
  • The intimate hygiene of men is as important as that of women: by washing genitals, you can remove discharge that collects between the glans, the penis and the foreskin. Moreover, you avoid transmitting pathogenic germs, which are very dangerous in fertile age as well as in pregnancy.  
  • Both women and men are recommended to wash their genitals at least once a day and rinse thoroughly. Washing the genitals several times a day could cause some adverse effects, such as the destruction of protective bacterial flora.
  • Suggest your partner to use a specific cleanser, which is gentle, with neutral or slightly acidic pHand clinically tested to guarantee the highest skin tolerability.
  • It is recommended to dry accurately the genitals, since humidity favours bacterial and fungal proliferation.
  • Wash your hands properly, as they are the main carriers of bacteria, and pay attention to the hygiene of bathroom fittings, especially in public toilets.
  • Use the condom from the beginning to the end of the sexual intercourse and in case of anal sex. Indeed, there is an abundant microbial flora in the rectum.
  • It is a good rule for a man to check his genitals regularly. Indeed, during the daily cleansing, he could perform testicular self-examination, to notice any change, burning or redness, that are important warning signals of ongoing infections.
For the daughter
  • It is not right to think of intimate hygiene as “something” for adults only. On the contrary, it is necessary to learn how to take care of the intimate area since childhood, thanks to some simple daily rules.
  • Teach your daughter your intimate hygiene habits, through games. Indeed, good habits pass from mother to daughter. Once your girl will feel independent and autonomous in her personal hygiene choices, then these habits will become part of her daily life routine.
  • Daily intimate hygiene is not “something” for future women, but it also concerns little boys.
  • For your daughter (4-13 years) use an intimate cleanser especially designed for the intimate area of little girls. Indeed, during pre-pubertal age, the vaginal pH is neutral, because of the absence of oestrogens, and “good” bacteria are in the minority compared to “bad” bacteria. This makes little girls’ mucous membranes very thin, sensitive and dry. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the natural defenses of the vagina every day through a correct intimate hygiene.
  • The attendance of places at risk, such as swimming pools, gyms, saunas or public toilets, makes your daughter more exposed to bacterial attacks. Teach her to wash her hands properly, as the hands are the main carriers of bacteria.
  • Give your children their own personal towel. This way, you can avoid the spread of germs and fungi.
  • Show your daughter how to wash properly her intimate area
  • Make sure that your children’s diet is poor in excess sugar and rich in water.
