What is vaginal dryness?

1 IN 6 WOMEN BEFORE AGE 50, 1 IN 2 AFTER AGE 50

We believe that modesty and a lack of education on the subject mean that it is largely underestimated… even though it is central to our well-being and balance!

How to identify vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness can occur at various key moments in a woman’s life, yet it is often ignored, even though its consequences can have a real impact on quality of life! Symptoms that should alert us to the state of our vaginal flora:

What are the most common causes of intimate dryness?

The vaginal mucosa is kept moist and comfortable by the body’s natural secretions, which are orchestrated in large part by estrogen levels, and by balanced vaginal flora and pH. When estrogen production is disrupted, or declines more sharply (especially between the ages of 35 and 50), sensations of intimate discomfort may appear. Particularly frequent in the post-partum period and during menopause, nearly one in 2 women is affected after the age of 50, even if some live with it more or less comfortably. But there are many life events that can trigger intimate dryness:

  • Certain poorly tolerated oral contraceptives
  • After pregnancy or while breast-feeding
  • A few days before menstruation, during premenstrual syndrome
  • During perimenopause or menopause
  • Following an episiotomy or hysterectomy
  • Following illness or treatment (chemotherapy, antibiotics, etc.)
  • Antidepressants, hay fever remedies or allergies
  • Reactions to nicotine or alcohol
  • Excessive intimate hygiene, with the use of harsh soaps or gels (acid pH)
  • But also deep-seated emotional disorders and chronic stress, which can affect hormonal balance!

During these transitions, the ovaries produce less estrogen, which can lead to a reduction in the number of lubricating glands and a thinning of vaginal tissue. Sometimes, applying the right gel can make a real difference when you thought you didn’t need it (as we found in our tests). The pH of the intimate area can also become more acidic, leading to a less balanced vaginal flora and a greater risk of recurrent infections (especially as the tissue thins). It’s important to react and take good care of the intimate area as soon as the 1st signs appear, to avoid more embarrassing phenomena such as vulvo-vaginal atrophy.

What are the natural solutions to relieve intimate dryness?

If you’re dealing with intimate or vaginal dryness, you should know that there are a variety of methods to help you feel better. Innovative technologies such as lasers and other techniques aimed at boosting vaginal lubrication are in full development. In addition, traditional approaches such as acupuncture have proved effective and can really make a difference.

However, the key is often prevention, and acting at the first signs of discomfort. Opting for a protective moisturizer can really make all the difference. These products are specially formulated to help restore and maintain natural moisture to the intimate area. Soothing feelings of dryness and irritation.

In addition to these solutions, natural remedies can be a great help. Simple ingredients like coconut oil or aloe vera, known for their moisturizing and soothing properties, can be your allies in the fight against intimate dryness. They offer a natural, gentle alternative for nourishing and protecting the vaginal mucosa.

Each of us is different, so the approach that works best may vary from person to person. The important thing is to find what works best for you, so that you feel comfortable and confident.

How to choose the right moisturizer?

  • Hormone-based ovules are often very effective on the spot, but the effect doesn’t last over time and must be repeated regularly. What’s more, we’ve had many reports of unwanted discharge…
  • Lubricants are not moisturizers; they are “inert” textures, often based on silicones or mineral oils, which are usually applied just before intercourse to promote gliding by “lining” the mucous membrane. This won’t improve the area’s natural lubrication for long, and the texture is often runny and evaporates quickly.
  • There are water- and oil-based moisturizers, so it’s up to you to choose the one that suits you best in terms of texture and sensation of comfort, because the right product is the one you want to apply!

The advantage of moisturizers? As well as lubricating, their texture (especially water-based ones) is more discreet and offers longer-lasting comfort. Be sure to choose a hypoallergenic, pH-neutral product. If possible, with a complex of pre- and probiotics to rebalance the vaginal flora, hyaluronic acid for optimal, long-lasting hydration and soothing, healing aloe vera.

⚠️ Caution: oil- or silicone-based skin care products are often not compatible with condoms or other accessories.
