Solving Your Skin Problem
The desire for a fresh, odourless and healthy intimate region leads to frequent washing with water, soap or shower gels, moist tissues or other hygiene products.
If the skin is sensitive, such well-intentioned cleansing can disrupt the natural balance of the skin and diminish or weaken the natural protective functions of the skin in intimate areas. Burning, itching, soreness or tenderness are the result.
The most common mistakes are:
- washing the skin excessively (cleansing the skin too often with water, soap or other hygiene products)
- inappropriate cleansing, e.g. with products containing water or alcohol/glycerin which cause the skin to dry out
- intensive cleansing e.g. with rough toilet paper that irritates and damages the surface of the skin
Often, problems in the intimate region are therefore simply a matter of skin care.
