But this is just one solution. Is there anything else that can be done before or after exercise to keep our intimate skin cared for? Glad you asked.
- Lace and silk underwear is a bit ‘ooh-la-la’ but it won’t help when it comes to sweating. Best avoid these when exercising and on hot days. Rather, choose a breathable material such as cotton. It’ll keep you cool and reduce sweating. You can also try underwear that are specially designed to deal with sweat – Sweaty Betty have a great range without VPL for when you’re working it.
- After a few laps in the pool or a particularly vigorous HIIT session, make sure to change into clean, dry clothing straight away – hanging around in sweaty/damp clothes can allow bacteria to develop. If you can’t change straight away, use a femfresh intimate wipe to freshen up and care for skin.
- Using powder on hot days or when exercising is a great way to soak up sweat. But make sure to use a powder that’s specially designed for your intimate skin. Something like femfresh Re-Balance intimate powder would be perfect.
