It’s a new year, and that means a fresh start! There’s no better time to commit to taking better care of you. But when it comes to health, intimate health is often overlooked. Not this year!
At SweetSpot Labs, we know that your sweet spots are at the very center of your wellbeing. We’re here to help you and your vulva live your best life in 2023 and beyond! Here are our top 5 ways to take care of your sweet spots this year.
1. Check Your Vulva
The best way to care for your vulva is to take a look on a regular basis! A self-exam from time to time will help you become more familiar with your body, and help you identify anything of concern right away. Notice the size and shape of your clitoral hood and labia, look for any bumps, discoloration, pain, or changing skin texture. If you come across anything you’re unsure about, consult your medical provider.
2. Avoid These Ingredients
When it comes to intimate health, the first rule is to do no harm. You can do that by avoiding ingredients that can disrupt the delicate natural balance of your sweet spots. Common irritants like sulfates, essential oils, and harsh fragrance could be hiding in your personal care products, pantyliners, even toilet paper. Depending on your skin, these ingredients could potentially lead to conditions like contact dermatitis. Do right by your vulva and read those labels!
3. Use SweetSpot Labs
SweetSpot Labs solutions are consciously formulated with intimate skin-friendly ingredients and clinically proven to be both effective and non-irritating. Whether you need a quick fix for bumps and ingrowns, something to soothe that itch ASAP or just want a luxurious all-over body wash that won’t disrupt your pH, we’ve got you!
4. Have Sex!
Whether it’s partnered or solo, sex can help reduce stress, improve sleep and boost your mood. But above all else, it’s about having fun and connecting to your body and mind. If you need a little help boosting your libido (especially after menopause), check out these tips from Dr. Heather Hirsch. And when it’s all said and done, be sure to show your sweet spots some TLC!
5. Wear the Right Undies
If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe for the new year, start with your undies. Tight, constricting underwear (especially if it’s made of nylon) is basically like putting your vulva in prison. Upgrade to undies that let your sweet spots breathe! Cherri underwear is made from soft supima cotton and specifically designed with a wide gusset to prevent any lip slips. Labia-inclusive fashion that’s also great for your sweet spots? We’re here for it.
Happy New Year from all of us at SweetSpot Labs!
