When You Want To Smell Good Down There

Posted on Jan 9 2018 - 1:45am by tweenselmom

Being hygienic down there is one of the first and most important aspects of feminine hygiene which I taught my daughters. You should too. And when you say you need to teach them, that means you have to be crystal clear in what you teach.

Dove Soap and Feminine Liquid Soaps

I’ve taughtt the girls about feminine hygiene even before they learned how to take a bath by themselves. Because girls are more inexperienced and sensitive than older women when it comes to washing, I have to make sure that they use a soap that is gentle for them. Dove soap bar is the first soap I’ve introduced to my daughters when it comes to feminine hygiene. This is what my mom-in-law taught me as well. I also use Dove alternately with a feminine liquid soap. Dove is not only gentle but it also leaves a very clean and fresh scent after washing. When it comes to washing though, be careful of overdoing it so as not to kill the good bacteria which are present in the feminine area.

Tight Clothes and Choosing Underwear

Since my kids are still growing, I have to buy them new ones at least twice a year. Wearing tight fitting underwear is not comfortable and can make the skin sweat especially on hot weather. The sweat can make dirt more sticky and thus more harmful bacteria can breed over the skin and be the cause of unpleasant odor. It goes the same with wearing tight fitting shorts or clothes. It’s advisable to wear jeans or shorts which allow easy movements and that are made of comfortable materials.

When it comes to choosing underwear for me and my girls, I try to buy those made with breathable fabric. Right now, the girls don’t care about the designs I choose for them but I am more inclined to choose white underwear or light colored ones so the dirt can easily be seen when the undies are being washed.

Sanitary Pads and Napkins

Sanitary pads and napkins play an important role in maintaining feminine hygiene. Young girls usually have periodic discharges which is why I always tell my girls to bring extra pads of panty liners and napkins and even a fresh underwear in their bags. As a mom, I still remind them from time to time because in their age, they are still not that conscious and more focused in what they are doing rather than spending extra minutes to change and freshen up. Fortunately, the pads we are using now, Jeunesse, has that long lasting absorbency and is able to keep us smelling fresh for a longer time. Jeunesse has what they call anion strips which help in fighting germs and unpleasant odor. Jeunesse pads are also available in different kinds of thickness so we are able to choose which ones to use according to our needs. We particularly use the Night pads when we have heavy flows and the new Ultra Thin Super Absorbent Day Pad with wings which is currently my favorite.

Talking about intimate hygiene is a must with the kids as they are growing up, may they be girls or boys. Having a good smelling body and a pleasant smell in the most hidden parts of the body is not only healthy but can give anyone comfort and confidence the whole day.

    I haven’t introduced my daughter yet to feminine wash but I make sure that she uses baby soap or soaps that has less chemicals. Hygiene is very important especially when you have a daughter.

    Tried their panty liners and I’m so surprised because there’s no “kulob” smell not like some other panty liners I tried before. 🙂 Galing! 🙂

    I find that I’m allergic to the panty liners of two of the most popular brands. I’ll try this one. We don’t have girls so ako lang talaga hahaha

      maselan din ako may pagdating sa panty liners, gusto ko talaga yung sturdy yung cotton and matibay ang kapit sa undies. Yeah, you are right, mas tipid in this case kasi puro boys ang sayo 🙂

    I don’t have a daughter but I can relate to some of your pointers. I prefer cotton underwear also. I haven’t tried this brand of pantyliners, though.

    No other girls at home, just me but you’re right with tight underwear/shorts, that’s why I prefer cotton underwear and loose shorts/tokong/pyjamas. I have not tried this brand, though but I would love to try. I have been hearing good reviews abt it

    I’ve tried Jeunesse pads before and I loved them! It’s rare to find here, though, so di ko na na-continue. I’m curious to try their liners also. However, I’m also interested in trying reusable cloth pads and cups ^_^

    It’s really good to inteoduce to your children proper hygiene at the very age. So that they would know how to take care of themselves at an early age. I always bring with me my feminine wash and a fresh underwear wherever I go because you can’t tell when’s the time you’ll feel not so fresh down there. I’m also considering wearing panty liners soon.

    We use a feminine wash at home and try and stay away from bar soaps. Although I know Dove is a gentle soap just not sure it’s made for down there? We also use Jeunesse and I’m glad I’ve finally discovered it. Finally able to work out comfortably!

      Yes, Dove! My mom in law told me that and I’ve used it myself and to the girls when they were still babies when I wash their pinkies.
