Good habitS

  • Don't use shower gel to cleanse your intimate area because its pH is not suited to the vulvar flora which is more acid. Instead, use a specific cleanser with a soap-free, gentle cleansing base and a physiological pH.
  • Wash your intimate area with your hand; don't use a flannel, which is a breeding ground for germs. Washing should be limited to the vulva and the area between the thighs. Remember to rinse and dry the area well.
  • Avoid vaginal douches, unless recommended by your doctor because the vaginal flora is fragile and can easily become unbalanced, making it more prone to infections.
  • Don't wash this intimate area more than twice a day, which is perfectly adequate. Rinse thoroughly and dry without excessive rubbing.
