The Fem Manual: A Woman’s Feminine Hygiene Guide To Becoming Her Best Self

Women of today have shown how formidable and tenacious they are by breaking through multiple glass ceilings at work, at home, and in society all in the name of gender equity. This relentless path to gender equity has been paved by women who wholeheartedly embrace their individuality day in and day out, and who constantly strive to become their best selves.

A lot of care and consideration is needed when trying to become your best self. Since women have varying definitions of what that ‘best self’ looks like, it is important to note that the only way to fully achieve any of those definitions is by choosing to take proper care of yourself every day.

As women, one of the best ways to practice self-care is through good feminine hygiene. Your intimate region or your “femzone” not only requires attention, it also requires delicate and essential care in order to keep your overall health in tip-top shape — because when you win in health, you win at life.

Here are five things you need to know about feminine hygiene:

  1. Confidence is key

Being able to embrace one’s uniqueness comes down to one crucial factor: confidence. To build that confidence up, you must practice taking care of your body and health regularly because when you look and feel good, you become more confident in yourself and more appreciative of your individuality.

This is one of the reasons why organizations from all over the country are making consistent efforts to aid women in becoming more confident in their own skin, by creating brands and products that make them feel good both inside and out.

  1. A clean femzone is a happy femzone

While the femzone is known for its self-cleaning abilities, it wouldn’t hurt to give it the occasional wash from time to time. The best way to keep your femzone happy and clean is to use feminine washes that are formulated to be gentle and maintain your femzone’s balance.

Considering that the femzone requires distinct care from the rest of the body, long-trusted products like Lactacyd Feminine Wash is a perfect fit as it has a long-standing history of helping women as early as 1947 in protecting and cleansing the femzone.

  1. Get deep and learn what your femzone needs

Before starting and creating any routine with your femzone, remember that every femzone is unique. Methods that might work for others might not work for you. Make sure you get deep and learn your femzone’s specific needs, by testing products and routines to know what kind of care works best for your femzone.

Luckily for women everywhere, there are products that offer a full range of options for every kind of care that your femzone might need. Whether the need might be having it moisturized or revitalized, naturally and safely whiten, having long-lasting coolness and freshness or keeping irritation and odor away, there is a feminine wash fit for you.

  1. Get your femzone checked

While home remedies work for the common cold, it will not do when trying to resolve an issue with your femzone, like menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea.

For matters as sensitive as this, the simple hot compress will no longer do. Fortunately for women everywhere, over-the-counter medications exist to target this very unique experience. Medications like Hyoscine N-butylbromide + Paracetamol (Buscopan Venus) provide the dual action formula that targets the source of menstrual cramps and simultaneously provides relief versus usual analgesics that just mask the pain. 

But, while this medication exists, make sure to accompany this with regular doctor visits to always be updated on the condition of your femzone.

  1. Find your purpose and live it out

In owning all the ways you can take proper care of yourself, you learn to appreciate your unique perspective, skills, and experiences even more. Use that appreciation to identify your life’s purpose and decide to live it out every day.

Make the intention to positively impact groups as small as your circle of friends or crowds as big as communities around you, and influence others to do the same. After all, every woman is a woman of impact and influence in their own way.

Bodies grow and change with age. Your femzone is a part of your body that faces health challenges at various points of your life, which is why brands like Lactacyd and Buscopan Venus exist; they recognize that caring for one’s femzone is a continuous process and keeping it healthy is an important part of your overall health.

“We know that taking care of the femzone is not easy, but it is necessary. We wanted women to know that we understand their struggle and we want to make caring for their femzone a little bit easier,” said Ysabel Banson, Group Brand Lead for Sanofi Consumer Healthcare.
