Valentine’s Day is a once-a-year affair. But V-Day — the one that concerns your lady down there — well, it has to be every day. We don’t mean just the routine cleaning, though. In this guide, and with the help of Kinohimitsu Hawa Activ, we’ll share how you can tend to your lady garden — inside and out.
Let it be
Your friend down there is self-cleaning. Yup, it’s strong and independent just like you. So make sure you keep things gentle when it comes to washing and let it do its own thing. Avoid using fragranced soaps and gels and stick to just water. Using fragranced washes can actually disrupt its pH level, which may then lead to bacteria growth — think itching, soreness and more. We don’t want that! Here’s something to remember: your friend down there shouldn’t be smelling like flowers, either — it should smell just the way it does.
But also pay more attention to it
It doesn’t mean you need to stop minding it, though. Discharges are normal — except when they are not. A healthy discharge looks and feels like an egg white. Keep an eye out for a strong smell or colour — green, yellow or brown may mean different things such as an infection or an underlying condition. Any sensations such as itching and soreness are also not normal and need to be addressed with the help of your OB-GYN.
Nourish it from within
Taking care of it through the inside is just as important! Aside from eating well (your usual fruits and vegetables) and drinking lots of water, adding a supplement that supports its nourishment is just what you need. Kinohimitsu Hawa Activ was created to improve blood circulation for fewer period cramps, promote strength and vitality for more energy, promote good urinary tract health, as well as gut health. It’s packed with phytoestrogen and isoflavones from Kacip Fatimah and Pueraria Lobata extracts that keep your nether region in tip-top shape by addressing menstrual issues and improving fatigue and irritability during this period. Mix one sachet with 80ML of water and drink up before you start your day and eat your breakfast.
Get them moving
Your regular exercise routine can help your body holistically but exercises specifically for your lady can help this region immensely. Try to engage in kegel exercises. They are exercises that don’t only help the muscles on your friend get stronger but also support your uterus, small intestine, bladder and rectum.
If it’s your first time, just remember these steps. First, find the right muscles to train. Pretend to tighten your lady. Next, find the perfect position for you. Lie on your back, sit or stand — these are all great for trying these exercises out. Then, do repetitions. Tighten your lady for three to five seconds then let it relax for three to five seconds. Do this for 10 times. Experts suggest doing at least 30 to 40 exercises a day for a happy and strong lady friend.
Keep these in mind and make sure you have a good V-Day — every day.
