Take a note of these tips to maintain hygiene during your periods and make sure you remember and follow them :

  • CHANGE YOUR SANITARY NAPKIN FREQUENTLY :

It is important to change your sanitary napkin quite frequently. It’s something you have to remember to change. If you know that you will be out for a good number of hours, change your pad before you leave your home. It is advised that you should change your pad once in five/six hours. Not changing your pad frequently can have serious implications. Even if you do not have much bleeding on a particular day, you should change it often because the pad will have organisms from your vagina, sweat from the genitals, etc. A damp pad turns green and might cause cancer if you keep it for long hours.

  • WASH YOURSELF REGULARLY :

Another important way to maintain hygiene is to keep yourself clean and fresh. You must take bath on a regular basis and particularly wash your vagina. Washing the vagina helps in removing the excess blood away that might be resting around the opening of the vagina. It also helps to remove foul odour.

  • DISCARD YOUR USED PAD PROPERLY :

It is important to discard your used pad in a proper manner. Throw it by wrapping it properly in a waste newspaper and crush it. Never flush the used pad. Also, wash your hands after discarding your used pad.

  • USE ONLY ONE SANITARY METHOD :

It has been observed that women tend to use two sanitary napkins during the days when they have heavy flow. This is not correct. In days of heavy flow, you should change your pad regularly rather than opting for 2 methods of sanitation at a time. Using 2 methods of sanitation at a time can lead to rashes and infections.

Remember the above mentioned tips to maintain menstrual hygiene and stay healthy!

Women are the happiest when they are complimented for their beauty. They are even happier when they garner compliments and praises for their natural beauty without applying any make-up. Sometimes, going out fresh-faced and unleashing your natural side is the best option. There should not be much difference between you with and without makeup.

Always remember, makeup should be used to highlight your best features and not conceal them.

Here are a few simple tips to keep you beautiful sans makeup :

1. Drink Water : Drinking ample of water every day is the best way to look beautiful without using any beauty products. Water keeps your skin moisturized from within and maintains your youthful glow throughout.

2. Wash Your Face : Washing your face daily, once in the morning and once at night will remove all the dirt and pollution that might have settled on your face during the day. A cold splash of water on the face will open up the pores.

3. Shampoo Your Hair : Shampooing your hair every 2-3 days helps to keep your hair shiny and fresh. It would remove all the impurities which make it look rough and dry. Healthy and shiny hair are a boost to your personality.

4. Sunscreen : You just can’t give this a miss. A sunscreen is an essential part of your daily kit. Never step out in the sun without applying it as it protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and prevents it from getting tanned.

5. Lemon Juice : This is a nice trick to have a beautiful skin. Having a glass of lemon juice not only gives you a shiny skin but also cleans your body system. It is a natural exfoliator for your skin.

Keep these simple tips in mind and have a naturally beautiful skin you always dreamt of!

5 TYPES OF MEN WOMEN CAN’T RESIST

men

Not all men are an object of women’s desire. Only men with certain unique qualities attract women. Here, I mean that a man who is good-looking and charming doesn’t mean that he will succeed in attracting women around him. There are lot of things that women find in a man and love to fall for him.

So men, are you listening? Do you fall in the category of ‘irresistible men’? Do you have that irresistible factor which makes women have more and more of you?

Find out for yourself :

1. The Intellectual One : A man with exceptional wits and intellects tends to attract a woman remarkably. His intelligent approach to every situation in his life and tackling problems practically is what impresses a woman. After all, how can intelligence not drive someone crazy!

2. The Humorous One : You can make a woman go crazy with your clever sense of humour. A light-hearted man who doesn’t fail to make her laugh when she is feeling low or even otherwise is all she wants to spend her life with.

3. The Confident One : A confident man is one who is bold and assertive. He carries himself confidently and makes his girl feel secure when she is with him. Such a man is protective about his girl. There’s a thin line between being protective and insecure. Always choose the former.

4. The Creative One : Women are easily attracted to creative guys. You can show off your artistic side to her everytime you get the opportunity. Creativity makes women go weak in their knees.

5. The Caring One : One of the best ways to grab a woman’s attention is to be chivalrous towards her. Follow the ‘English Gentleman’ rules whenever you are with her. For example, opening the car door for her, picking her up at her door, etc.

So, these are the men who women dream of, crave for and lust after!

ABCs OF MENSTRUATION

mens

A woman’s body greatly depends on her menstruation cycle. It affects her in many ways. The body undergoes various major changes on the onset of periods, during pregnancy and the time when she is about to hit her menopause. A woman’s body faces hormonal hits and misses throughout her life. Hormones like oestrogen, testosterone, insulin and various others are fluctuating throughout your life.

Menstruation is your body’s way of telling you that your reproductive system is functioning properly. The monthly cycle of every girl varies. Some have it of 28 days and some have it of 30 days. The average number of days it lasts is 4-8 days. So basically, depending on various factors, some periods are short, others are long, while some are heavy, others are light.

Women tend to ignore the irregularity of their periods. Some don’t get their periods at all. There can be various causes to this depending on your age. If a girl is in her 20s or 30s and she misses her periods, chances are that she is pregnant. If a woman is her 40s or 50s and she misses them, then she is progressing towards menopause. Menopause is a stage when the ovaries decrease their production of oestrogen. The average age of hitting menopause is 51 years.

Another most common cause of missed periods is when you exercise heavily. It has been found that athletes or ballet dancers and runners who indulge in too much physical activity stop getting their periods completely. Extremely heavy or intense exercise affects the production and regulation of reproductive hormones involved in menstrual cycle.

Never ignore if you are getting painful periods or no periods at all. This might happen due to various factors and if ignored, it can prove fatal to your health. Visit a doctor immediately the moment you notice something odd or unusual in your menstrual cycle.
