As we already know, the food we eat directly affects all our organs, as well as our genitals. When it comes to women, the way our vagina smells also strictly depends on what we eat. Certain foods affect our body in a specific way, changing the balance of sugar, bacteria and chemical components of the body. As consuming large amounts of garlic makes you smell unpleasantly for days, thus certain foods produce a nice smell of the intimate parts or rather vaginal juices, secreted during sex. Keep in mind that alcohol, cigarettes and too much spicy food can cause a bad, unpleasant smell.
The secret lies in nutrition
First of all, avoid consuming great amounts of sugar, because the high blood sugar level can lead to yeast infection accompanied by itching, burning of the vulva, white vaginal discharge and bad vagina smell. Despite the lack of scientific evidence, women’s experiences show that consumption of pineapple, lemon and orange promotes vagina’s fine smell and taste. In addition, yogurt is also considered excellent for vagina’s health, because it contains good bacteria that are naturally present in our body and responsible for preserving the health of the intimate parts. Peppermint tea has a lot of beneficial properties for this body area, too.
Always maintain high level of intimate hygiene
Long hairs in the intimate zone do not necessarily cause an unpleasant smell, but may be suitable for the multiplication of bacteria if you do not take enough care of your intimate hygiene. If you want to avoid even the slightest probability of this happening, you can remove the hair with a razor or simply trim them. Maintaining short pubic hairs is perhaps a better solution because shaving can cause skin irritation.
Wet wipes can also be of great help, in particular situations. However, since they only clean the outer side of the intimate parts, make sure to choose odorless or baby wipes.
Regular gynecologist visits
Unpleasant vaginal odor may appear due to infections that you are not even aware of. If this is the case, be sure the doctor will recognize it and prescribe you a suitable medicine. Even if you are satisfied with your intimate scent, you should see a gynecologist regularly, at least every six months.
Take care of your underwear
You should wear only cotton panties, because it is the least irritating fabric for your skin. Wearing silk, satin and other sexy lingerie leave for special occasions only. After all, who says that there are no cotton underwear models that are equally seductive?
If you want your intimate region to be particularly fresh, you can always use this old remedy. Rinse your vagina with mint tea once a week and the scent is guaranteed to be much more pleasant.
