And believe you me, it’s what you’ll be thankful for if well looked after! Still confused? It’s the vagina!
Yes, it’s a thing, indeed! Vaginal workout, quite popularly known as Kegel Exercises, which everybody must have heard of at least once by now, is not as hard as it sounds and is quite important for a number of reasons. Overall exercise in general is great for an enhanced quality of life and even sex life. Research says that women who like to workout naturally orgasm better. Perhaps there is a direct relationship? Let’s find out.
HOW TO KEGEL YOUR WAY TO A HEALTHY VAGINA?
Even when you have the fanciest gear to workout, getting yourself out of the bed and do the actual workout can be boring, tiresome and rough. But kegels, nope! You can literally do these simple exercises anywhere and it doesn’t even require any professional gear. When you don’t want to get out of bed, these exercises can be done on the bed, under the safety of your covers too!
The merits of Kegels can’t be undermined – tighter and healthier vagina, better sex. Here’s how to do it -

When you start exercising the vagina in particular, it can also help you orgasm more easily, have more intense orgasms, and gain control over your vaginal muscles.

STICK TO MILD CLEANSERS
Do not, let’s repeat – do not scrub the living daylight off your vagina. Harsh soaps, powder, deodorants are a big no-no when it comes to maintaining the hygiene of the vagina. The vagina is a self-cleaning system but using a mild cleanser such as Imbue Intimate Hygiene Wash helps maintain the pH and keeps the vagina healthy, fresh and infection-free.
WHAT GOES IN YOUR STOMACH SHOWS ON YOUR FACE AND THE VAGINA TOO!
Do you think it’s only the face and body that age? Obviously when you cross a certain age, your lady parts will inevitably sag; that is, they lose fat. Your vagina, just like your face changes in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and beyond. So, an overall healthy diet for your entire body will in turn keep the vagina healthy too. Lady V is the happiest when fed with cranberries, sweet potatoes, avocados, apple, flaxseed, almond, pumpkin and soy, which are just a few that naturally help in pH balancing, are rich in pro-biotic and have tons of omega-3.
A staggering number of women when asked, confirm that they aren’t happy with how they look down there. Statistics say that how women feel about their lady parts is directly proportional to how confident they feel about themselves. Vaginal rejuvenation is therefore on the rise now-a-days. There are a number of procedures to make women feel good about themselves just by beautification of the genital area. But is it really the need of the hour? We definitely don’t need plastic surgery to keep the body young and healthy. Every woman’s body is different and calls for different dietary and grooming requirement. While the above help you to keep the vagina young, healthy and happy, finally, it is important to understand the anatomy and see what works best for you.
