How to adopt good personal hygiene

Good intimate hygiene is essential for us women. Taking care of your privacy is taking care of your femininity, and there is nothing more beautiful than a woman who accepts herself. Musc Intime has unearthed 4 tips just for you to take care of yourself.

1. A healthy lifestyle above all

Before having good intimate hygiene, you have to think wider and talk about healthy living since the two are intimately linked.

Let's talk about the food aspect first. As the saying goes “You are what you eat” and in our case it couldn't be truer. There are foods that are good for your intimate hygiene or, on the contrary, enemies to avoid. It is well known that yogurt, thanks to the bacteria naturally present in it, is good for the intestinal flora. But this food is also good for your vaginal flora. Probiotics help your vagina maintain an ideal pH and a balanced vaginal pH is a barrier against infections and fungal infections. Another food that is interesting for good intimate hygiene is soy. There is no concrete evidence but some scientists believe that soy foods such as tofu contain isoflavones which mimic the estrogen naturally produced by our body. Estrogen helps fight vaginal dryness and thus limit feelings of discomfort. Now you have a good reason to eat miso soup!

Regarding drinks, water is your best ally, not only does it hydrate your intimate area but also provide you with certain minerals essential to your proper functioning. Avoid drinking drinks that are too sweet as this will increase the chances of you catching a vaginal infection. And yes, you're not the only one who loves sugar, the bacteria responsible for infections love it too! By the way, did you know that vaginal secretions contain sugar? Alcohol is your great enemy, this drink would multiply the chances of catching a nasty urinary tract infection.

For active women, do not neglect your privacy even when you are outside. The intimate area is even more exposed to bacteria than when you are at home. Slip an individual Musk Intime intimate wipe in your bag in the morning to be sure to keep your privacy clean throughout your day. And the little extra our wipes are 100% biodegradable you can throw them in the toilet.

2. Top underwear

Lingerie for a woman is much more than underwear, it's a way to assert your femininity, to have self-confidence, to feel beautiful and attractive. For our own sake nothing better but for our health not so sure.

According to Drs. Jill M. Rabin and Shieva Ghofrany, there is nothing worse than a thong for good intimate hygiene. The thong, being by nature very tight, would be responsible for irritations in your between legs. These repeated irritations can have an impact on your intimate area, especially in the vulva, and thus cause pain. But the thing that is more problematic with this underwear is the proximity to the colon. During the day you tend to move and your underwear follows these movements with you. The thong, by its nature, is in direct contact with the colon area and in this area there is a small microscopic creature that has many surprises in store for you. The famous E.coli bacteria which is responsible for the majority of vaginal infections. Wearing thongs could increase the chances of being prone to not-so-funny infections.

But the shape is not the only problem, there is also the material that comes into play. Synthetic materials are to be avoided because they do not let your intimate area breathe. Remember that this area is permanently wet and must remain so. However, these synthetic materials prevent air from circulating and prevent the renewal of essential intimate fluids. You can say hello to yeast infections and bad smell. Choose materials like cotton, which are natural and allow your privacy to breathe. Cotton is really your ally in intimate hygiene. When drying your intimate area, you can use our 100% cotton and anti-bacterial towels to avoid any proliferation of bacteria.

3. Thoroughly clean your privacy

It's been a few years that we see washing products for the intimate area springing up everywhere, but beware, these products are not all without risk for your intimate hygiene.

I am going to present to you here three ingredients with barbaric names that should be banned from your intimate routine.

Propylparaben: The infamous propylparaben which is used in the cosmetics industry as a preservative and perfuming agent. This component is often present in intimate cleansers, but you should know that it is suspected of being an endocrine disruptor. It is imperative that this ingredient be washed. If you are pregnant, it is even more dangerous for you!

Cyclopentasiloxane: Also called D5 silicone, cyclopentasiloxane is used in personal care products. It serves as an emollient but also as a solvent. It will soften the skin and guarantee some hydration. Super hydration, but at what cost? It is a carcinogenic ingredient very bad for health. A study conducted on mice showed that this component has serious consequences on the endocrine system. Some female mice even ended up with uterine cancer after being exposed to this compound.

Methylisothiazolinone (MIT): So he gets the gold medal. Moreover in 2013 it was elected allergen of the year by an association of American allergists. It is not recommended by dermatologists because it causes allergies in many people. But the big problem remains the fact that it is an endocrine disruptor and who says endocrine disruptor says uterine system in danger. So ladies, cleaning foams with this component should be thrown in the trash.

To choose an intimate foam, just read the INCI list. Privilege products based on natural ingredients that moisturize your intimate area but will allow you to have good intimate hygiene in complete safety. Don't hesitate to discover our intimate white musk mousse with 95% natural ingredients.


The advice of a specialist remains the best way to have good intimate hygiene. Making an appointment regularly with your gynecologist is recommended because we are never immune to intimate problems. She can give you advice on products to avoid and on best practices. There is no age to go to the gynecologist especially if you feel pain, or you have smelly losses. Sometimes you can have good intimate hygiene but still be subject to unpleasant odors and that's a sign that you need to go to a doctor. There's no harm in no harm in having bad smells, there's no shame in having it's natural. The most important thing is that you learn to listen to what your intimate area is telling you and above all to take care of it.

PS: A little advice don't hesitate to make your appointments with the gynecologist 4/5 years in advance, I know it's a lot but it has become quite difficult to have appointments quickly, as they say prevention is better than cure my musky beauty.

In conclusion, to take care of your privacy you have to pay attention to many factors such as diet, lifestyle or the products you use. Intimate Musk is your ally to take care of yourself and have good intimate hygiene. Find us on @muscintime and share with us your experiences in intimate hygiene.
