Warmer temperatures are slowly approaching which means sundress season is only a few months away. Whether you opt to wear a thong or don your clothing sans underwear, this article is for you!
Women across the nation are looking to lead healthier lifestyles. From the food they eat to the household chemicals they use, more women are moving more towards a natural, toxic-free lifestyle. Ever since Johnson and Johnson had the lawsuit regarding baby powder being linked to cervical cancer, many women have been more cautious about the products they use. Most recently, the megahouse brand, Always, was also found to use a chemical that is potentially cancerous.
This was alarming to me, considering I’ve been using sanitary napkins since I was 13 years old. To ensure that I am not exposing my reproductive system to harmful ingredients, I’ve been using natural feminine hygiene wash and natural sanitary napkins from The Honey Pot for over 3 years. However, I always washed my underwear with Tide. Have you ever considered what you wash your undies with?
It makes no sense to use natural feminine hygiene products, then expose your underwear to poisonous chemicals. Be sure to pay special attention to ALL of the products you use. Lingerie and underwear typically instruct you to either hand wash only or machine wash on the delicate cycle. Your panties are to be treated as delicate and so should your “honey pot.” It is important to wash your underwear with products that are not harmful to the health of your vagina; the ingredients of most detergents can cause irritation.
Clean & Cute is a natural panty wash, formulated by an OBGYN, Dr. Tosha Rogers, based in Atlanta, GA. It helps to prevent itching, vaginitis, yeast and mold. I tested this panty wash for myself and it’s an absolute must have in my opinion. While Clean & Cute (the first of its kind) smells like flowers, it is completely natural and fragrance free. Bonus: I have extremely sensitive skin, but it did not cause any irritation. Also, it produced the same results after handwashing and machine washing.
Vaginas are more prone to moisture, making them susceptible to house bacteria. Dr. Tosha wants women to understand that you cannot treat an infection, without also treating the underwear. As a mother of a young girl, I want to ensure that I am well informed of everything, so that I can educate my daughter. Puberty is around the corner and we will not entertain the practice of “period panties.” I will teach her how to care for
her underwear while maintaining proper hygiene.
Take charge of your wellness and remember that you are your best healthcare advocate. Ditch your current detergent and switch over to Clean & Cute. I guarantee that you will not regret the decision. Your “honey pot” will thank you, too. For more information, please visit drtosharogers.com.
