For comfort and pleasure
Let’s not be shy: vaginal dryness can affect us at any time of life. It’s common in menopause due to changes in the balance of hormones, but it can also be caused by medication, breastfeeding or illness. And for sexually active individuals and couples, a little extra lubrication can often enhance both comfort and pleasure.
Whatever the cause, it won’t go away by being embarrassed and trying to ignore it. After all, if your face is dry, you’ll apply a moisturiser. When you get an acne breakout, you’ll treat it gently with the right natural products. So why not treat vaginal dryness the same way?
Treat with care
But what products should we use to care for our more intimate areas? Research shows that up to 60% of what goes on the skin can get into the bloodstream. That’s why healthy prefers face creams, soaps, personal care products and cosmetics that contain only natural, organic ingredients.
When caring for the delicate mucosal membrane tissues of the vagina, vulva and surrounding areas, it’s especially important to choose wisely. Some products can also upset their pH balance, leading to additional problems such as urinary tract infections or bacterial vaginosis.
Plant-based and natural
Many healthcare professionals recommend the YES range of personal lubricants, vaginal moisturisers and intimate washes – some are even available on NHS prescription. Made to natural, plant-based formulations, with no concerning chemicals, they actively nourish and protect intimate tissues while remaining hypoallergenic, ultra-sensitive and side-effect free.
They’re also pH-balanced to help protect against infection. And because they’re certified organic by the Soil Association, choosing YES means you’re being kinder to the environment as well as yourself.
