Why your Intimate Health is important and how you can take care of it

We know how important a good skincare regime is. We have a face cleanser, toner, moisturiser, this serum, that serum, and a very hungover credit card.

So why don’t we put as much effort into our intimate health? Well the truth is, most women (and men) don’t actually know how important looking after your intimate skin is. And the rest of us don’t want to talk about it, so we’re here to change that. Understanding and caring for our sensitive intimate area means that uncomfortable symptoms can be avoided and you can experience an enhanced sense of sexual health and wellbeing.

The 3 simple steps to your healthiest vagina.

1. WASH or WIPE– Using an intimate wash helps to keep the pH levels balanced and protects from infections and inflammation. The optimum pH of a woman’s intimate area is 3.8pH – 4.5pH; However, this balance can be easily altered by the use of non-pH balanced intimate products, which can result in Thrush, Bacterial Vaginosis and Urinary Tract Infections.

CremaMia offers a beautiful lightly scented Discreet Intimate Wash or Discreet Intimate Wipes specially formulated for use in the intimate areas of your body. Acacia and chamomile act as anti inflammatories, while calendula and coconut oil moisturise and protect the skin. Used daily, it leaves you feeling refreshed and clean, balancing your pH levels and keeping your delicate areas hygienic.

2. MOISTURISE – Vaginal and vulva dryness is very common, with around 70% of post-menopausal women and 15% of pre-menopausal women affected by it. It is caused by a drop in oestrogen levels which are affected by your monthly cycle, stress, hormone changes (pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause), some medications, and lifestyle factors such as smoking, excess alcohol and obesity. Symptoms include a stinging/burning sensation, discomfort during sex, and can result in a higher pH leading to thrush and a condition called atrophic vaginitis.

CremaMia has developed a soothing lightly scented Discreet Intimate Lotion which moisturises the skin around your intimate areas. It replenishes dehydrated sensitive skin, allowing it to regenerate after shaving, waxing and laser. pH balanced. Marsh-mellow extract soothes and softens, hyaluronic acid retains moisture, while cucumber extract calms the skin.

3. LUBRICATE (optional)- Lubricant is often used during intimacy to ensure no dryness or irritation occurs. It can also be used during birth to help the crowning process and decrease the occurrence of vaginal tearing.

CremaMia’s natural water based Discreet Intimate Lubricant is gentle and long lasting. Its smooth formula won’t dry out as it enhances and increases sensation and pleasure. It is pH balanced, Hyaluronic Acid Boosts elasticity and hydration, while Coconut Oil acts as an anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial.
