Keep your vagina happy and healthy

By | Health Tips

All women should be concerned about their vaginal health, but what constitutes a healthy vagina? While it depends somewhat on a woman’s age, the vagina generally has an acidic pH, contains rich quantities of beneficial bacteria that help fend off infections, and is naturally lubricated.

A healthy vagina also secretes small amounts of discharge. Discharge is a normal physiologic reaction — it’s essentially shedding of cervical and vaginal cells. But if women experience changes in vaginal odor, a change in color of their discharge that may be associated with discomfort — whether it’s pelvic discomfort or vulvar discomfort, itching, or burning — any change needs to be evaluated.

Following a balanced, nutritious diet and drinking plenty of fluids are both key to vaginal and reproductive health. Yogurt can potentially help prevent yeast infections and aid in their treatment.

Having regular gynecological exams is crucial to maintaining your vaginal health. It is also recommended that women undergo pap smears starting at age 21 to screen for changes in vaginal cells that might indicate the presence of cancer. Gynecologists and many primary care physicians are trained to diagnose diseases and disorders that can harm the vagina or your reproductive system as a whole.

Your vagina should stay clean and dry — and what you wear can affect that. Certain types of fabrics and tight-fitting clothing create warm, moist conditions in which yeast thrive. Wear breathable cotton underwear and avoid thongs. If you’re prone to yeast infections, change out of wet swimsuits and sweaty workout clothes as quickly as possible.

Common sense can go a long way in protecting the health of your vagina. After a bowel movement, wipe from front to back to avoid bacterial contamination of the vagina and to lower the risk of bladder infection. Change sanitary pads and tampons regularly during your period.

Top five anti-aging tips

By | Health Tips

Aging is inevitable, but there’s a lot you can do to keep a beautiful skin no matter your age.

#1. Use Safe Cosmetics On Your Face
The first thing you should do to preserve your skin is to make sure that everything you put on your face and body is safe.

Most women use dozens of skincare and beauty products on their skin every day, including foundation, concealer, bronzer, primer, mascara, lipstick, blush, highlight, eyeliner, eye shadow, moisturizers, toners, face creams, perfumes, body mist, cleansers, masks, and scrubs.

Most commercial makeup and skincare products contain a significant amount of chemicals that serve as preservatives, colorants, stabilizers, and fragrances.

Some of these chemicals can damage your skin because they contain irritants, it triggers allergies, creates free radical damage, clogs your pores, and over dry your skin.

To stay safe, read labels and choose brands and products that are made with natural and safe ingredients you recognize.

#2. Make Sleep A Priority
Sleeping well every night might be more effective at fighting aging than any expensive treatment.

During sleeping, your body goes through a process of cell regeneration and repair that gets rid of dead cells, triggers the growth of new cells, and helps your skin produce more collagen, which keeps it tight and firm.

Sleeping well also helps to reverse some of the damage your skin might have received during the day.

#3. Reduce Stress
Stress can trigger and worsen skin conditions, damage cells, and speed up cellular aging. This means that stress can make your skin more vulnerable to external damage and decrease its ability to remain hydrated and plump.

To handle your stress, we recommend meditation, yoga and doing more of what you love – whether it’s listening to music, writing, drawing, or dancing.

#4. Drink Plenty Of Water
Your skin looks supple and plump only when your skin cells have plenty of water.

When you’re young, your skin can absorb and store water easily, but as you age, your skin begins to lose its ability to retain moisture, leading to the dry and dull-looking skin.

Drinking plenty of water every day helps to counter balance the loss of moisture retention as you age.

#5. Exercise
If you want to slow down the effects of natural aging, move your body.

Exercise is not only good for your internal organs; it will help you keep a youthful skin as well.

Exercise improves circulation, which helps your skin cells do their job much better. This lets you enjoy beautiful and vibrant skin.

The circulatory benefits of exercise also help to remove waste from the cells much faster, which prevents damage.
