My idea of self-care is putting on a face mask after a nice warm shower, with a good book or the latest episode of my Korean drama. Occasionally, I’ll decide...
CARE OF THE VULVA IS IMPORTANT
"The skin around our vulva is generally similar to the skin on the rest of our body and can be complicated with common skin conditions such as dryness, eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. Just like the skin in other part of the body, the skin around our vulva becomes thinner and loses its elasticity as we age. Hair greying, loss and reduced growth are also observed. Therefore care of the vulva is equally important as our care for our skin elsewhere."
