Lubricant for vaginal dryness, painful sex…not something that most women are comfortable to discuss openly, and yet it is a common complaint amongst women of all ages.
There can be many reasons for women to go through times of “drought” in intimate areas, times when their body’s natural lubrication is reduced and this area feels like the Sahara! This can lead to dry, itchy and even cracked vaginal skin which is problem enough on its own, but can also cause sexual intimacy to be painful and unpleasant. A drop in oestrogen level is usually the first thing to be blamed, but other factors such as stress, fatigue, diet and exercise, lifestyle and other medication can be major contributors to vaginal dryness as well.
‘Women who eat a nutritious diet generally experience fewer problems with vaginal dryness so it is really important to eat a balanced diet. For hormone balance it is especially important to make sure you eat enough essential fatty acids and to supplement with fish oil. A low- or no-fat diet can make your whole body drier including the vagina. It’s also important to stock up on phytoestrogens, as research shows that foods rich in phytoestrogens, such as soya, chickpeas, lentils, flaxseeds and so on, can change the cells of the vagina so that they become more soft, elastic and moist – all essential for pain-free intercourse. Eating plain organic yogurt with live culture four to five times a week may also help to maintain healthy intestinal flora and vaginal balance.’ – (Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD)
Lubricant For Vaginal Dryness
Cape Aloe is rich in phytoestrogens, and is therefore an ideal base for the ANARA personal lubricant. Aloe is readily absorbed through the skin, thereby providing essential nutrients directly to the dry, affected area. The addition of a very specific blend of probiotics in this product provides further assistance to keep the right hormone balance in the vagina, and to ensure soft and supple skin in this very sensitive area.
Our natural lubricant for vaginal dryness will become your new best friend after your first use. Don’t be shy… invest in yourself.
Additional tips for a healthy vagina!
Avoid douches, talcum powder, hot baths, perfumed toilet papers and bath oils and foams as they can irritate the vagina. Don’t wash the inside of your vagina with soap as this will dry out the skin. The vagina is self-cleansing and, in most cases, warm water is all that you need.
