If there is one lesson that Filipinos took away from the extended lockdown, it is the importance of maintaining our general health. During the peak of the pandemic, many of us experienced sudden changes in our routines. It was also during this time that we realized the importance of prioritizing physical health and self-care. For Filipinas, one form of self-care that has become more popular and important is intimate care or taking good care of their vaginal health.
With the increase in mobility and return of social activities, how can Filipinas take proper intimate care and practice good vaginal health – dealing with daily discharge, wetness, and odor management – while they are out and about?
According to Dr. Mary Ann Ceferina Gonzaga, an OBGYN practitioner, vaginal health can be managed by taking care of your overall health. This means eating healthy, having regular exercise, ensuring that you are well hydrated, sleeping well, and avoiding stressful activities. “Vaginal health is an important part of a woman’s overall health. It is important to maintain a healthy vulva and vagina to help prevent infections, discomfort, and to prevent the stress that comes with relationship problems and one’s self-confidence. If your vagina and intimate areas are healthy, you are more comfortable and confident which can equate to a better quality of life for women, their partners, and their families.” She also added how women can properly take care of their vaginal health, “Proper hygiene by keeping the intimate area clean, fresh, and dry is key in taking care of your vagina. We recommend using water and a natural mild soap or wash for cleaning, and using a natural, thin, light, comfortable, cotton, hypoallergenic pantyliners to keep women dry the whole day.”
Carefree, the number one pantyliner brand in the Philippines, believes that it is high time for women to start taking charge of their vaginal health now as they go out more. Through an online campaign called the #CarefreePantyLove Movement, Carefree aims to spark conversations in helping women keep their intimate area fresh all day, one clean panty at a time with Carefree pantyliners.
Carefree also tapped a new brand ambassador, Rei Germar, who embodies what it means to be Carefree fresh and clean. Rei shares how she practices #CarefreePantyLove by demonstrating to her followers how to keep her panties clean and fresh from wetness and odor by using Carefree pantyliners.
“I am a big believer of self-care and one of the ways I take care of myself is by making sure that even my most intimate areas are properly taken cared of. Now that I am going out more because of work and personal activities, I don’t want that icky feeling of vaginal discharge and having to worry about odor get in my way. With Carefree, I get to show #CarefreePantyLove by keeping my panties fresh and clean!” Rei Germar, content creator and Carefree ambassador.
