At one point in their lives, women suffer from some kind of discomfort in their private parts. In some cases, a common allergy or irritation can progress into a full-fledged infection. The ladies would do well to take preventive measures before this happens.
According to Dr. Bernadette Ong-Sumo,an obstetrician-gynecologist, women can protect themselves against common vaginal infections by practicing good personal hygiene.
For example, it’s highly-recommended to wear a good cotton underwear for a better shield against moisture and perspiration. It is important to keep oneself dry and
clean, avoiding scented feminine wash, pads or tampons if the skin is sensitive. Try to practice safe sex and stay away from wearing tight-fitting pants and jeans to
reduce the risk of developing infections. It’s as simple as that.
Dr. Ong-Sumo also prescribes a healthy solution: “Making yogurt with live cultures a regular part of your diet might help to restore a healthful yeast balance in the vagina.”
It is equally important to opt for an unscented and 100 percent sterilized virgin cotton material like Jeunesse Anion when using a sanitary pad.In a laboratory test conducted by the Institute of Chemistry, UP Diliman in correlation with previously published scientific studies and journals, it was found out that Jeunesse’s specifically modified cellulose-based hydrogels are not only super-absorbent, hypoallergenic, and non-toxic, but also exhibits anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and odor-reducing benefits!
The positive ions embedded in the material attracts the negatively charged bacterial cells, which dramatically results to cell death thus declining bacterial population by 99.9 percent.
