If there’s one thing you ought to know about your vagina, it’s that it’s self-cleaning machine. Just about every day, your vagina cleanses itself of excess amino acids, proteins and other acids to keep itself clean and healthy. But just because it “self-cleans”, doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay extra attention to perhaps one of the most intimate and sensitive areas of your body.
You’ll be shocked at how little some women know about their vulva area. While we use the term “vagina” loosely, vagina actually refers to the internal organ. The area that is exposed externally is known as the vulva, and includes your labia, clitoris and the opening to the vagina. And most feminine grooming products are formulated for use on this external area, not inside your vagina.
