In continuation to my post on Himalaya FOR MOMS Soothing Body Butter, here is another important product that caters to our needs and one that most moms often ignore—the intimate area. You already know about the changes your body goes through during pregnancy. Interestingly, even your intimate area is prone to changes during pregnancy! Yeast infections are more common in pregnancy than any other time, thanks to all the increased estrogen.
Here’s what you must know about pH Balance:
pH is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline (basic) a substance is. The scale runs from 0 to 14. A pH of less than 7 is considered acidic, and a pH of more than 7 is basic. The normal vaginal pH level is between 3.8 and 4.5, which is moderately acidic. However, during reproductive years (15-49) it can increase, leading to discharge, itchiness, and discomfort.
In order to follow an intimate hygiene regimen, choose a product that helps take care of your intimate area and maintain the right pH balance, like Himalaya FOR MOMS Intimate Wash and Wipes.
Himalaya has introduced these two unique products to take care of your intimate area. The product is specially formulated for new moms, moms, and moms-to-be. I have started including Himalaya FOR MOMS Intimate Wash and Intimate Wipes as a part of my personal hygiene routine as well. I’ve been using these for a while now.
HIMALAYA FOR MOMS INTIMATE WASH
Himalaya FOR MOMS Intimate Wash gently cleanses the intimate area while maintaining freshness. Ingredients like Tea Tree Oil help relieve itching and irritation and Pongamia Oil helps prevent odor due to its anti fungal property.
How to Use: Take a few drops in your hand and gently wash your intimate area with a little water. Rinse immediately post application.
My Experience: I liked the consistency of the wash–it is clear and runny. Just a few drops make me feel clean and fresh. This is my go-to product during my periods. Nonetheless, I think it’s a must during and after pregnancy.
200 ml – Rs. 205, 100 ml – Rs. 116. The product will last you long even when used daily. I prefer to keep a small bottle handy while I’m traveling.
HIMALAYA FOR MOMS INTIMATE WIPES
Himalaya FOR MOMS Intimate Wipes is a travel-friendly option and is enriched with Lavender Oil and Pongamia Oil. Lavender Oil has a mild yet refreshing fragrance and helps eliminates odor, and Pongamia Oil helps reduce itching, irritation, and dryness.
How to use: Gently wipe your vaginal area from front to back and dispose after one use. The pack comes with 25 wipes and a seal to retain the moisture when not in use. I prefer to carry it to work as well.
My experience: I really like these wipes! I find them convenient and easy to use. Most importantly, they keep me fresh and do not cause any dryness or itchiness in the intimate area.
Pricing: Pack of 10 – Rs. 50, Pack of 25 – Rs. 110
I would like to hear about your views and experience in maintaining intimate hygiene? Do you agree, its ignored and think more awareness needs to be spread about the same?
