As the temperatures drops each year and we start putting on extra layers, it’s a great time to check-in with your most precious parts and make sure they too are getting ready for a healthy, happy winter.

Here are a few tips to keep your girlie parts in tiptop shape this season:

As you start layering-on the leggings, jeans and long underwear, please remember that girlie parts need to breathe. The pelvic area needs air circulation to keep both sweat and bacterial growth in check. A great opportunity to get some airtime is while you sleep. Leave those panties on the floor and let her breathe at night.

In addition airing her out, wear natural fabric as much as possible. Nylon and polyester underwear and pantyhose react differently to sweat and bacteria, often trapping moisture and odor. Here are some healthier alternatives:

If you’re wearing fewer dresses and skirts in favor of tight-fitting jeans and leggings, rethink the thong. These “no panty line” favorites are also really good at transferring bacteria from back to front. Enough said.

Even though the temps are cold and a hot bath sounds delish, keep those baths free of harsh soaps and bubble bath additives. Bar soaps, body washes and bubble bath liquids can remove the delicate vaginal flora. This protective mucosal membrane acts as a barrier, keeping bad bacteria at bay.

As colds and flu proliferate in winter, be mindful of antibiotic use, which kill normal protective flora. If that cold turns into a visit to the pharmacy, when you’re finished with your antibiotics, follow-up with eating extra helpings of unsweetened yogurt to help repopulate the good guys in your system.

Ok you’re good to go! Now toss-on a few layers, grab your skis, snowboards, snowshoes and sleds and have fun this winter with your healthy hoohoo!
