Intimate areas require a different type of care than the rest of the body. The sensitive mucosa and delicate epidermis are easily irritated and chafed, and improper hygiene can disturb the pH balance in these areas, causing discomfort, itching and even pain.

Healthy bacterial flora in intimate areas protects against infections, so intimate hygiene products should, in addition to washing and refreshing, support the natural protective barrier of intimate areas and stop the mucosa from drying out.

Lirene's prebiotic therapeutic intimate hygiene wash LACTIMA DUO FORTE+ allows you to properly care for your intimate areas, especially if you're prone to infection and irritation. The intimate hygiene products created by a team of experts at the Lirene Scientific Laboratory meet the unique needs of these zones, and thanks to their active ingredients, they strengthen and protect the mucosa.

Because it contains a natural prebiotic and inulin, the Lirene LACTIMA DUO FORTE+ intimate hygiene lotion rebuilds proper bacterial microflora in intimate areas. The glycerin in the LACTIMA DUO FORTE+ liquid moisturises the epidermis, and thanks to its hygroscopic properties, it prevents excessive water loss from cells. Moreover, the lactic acid contained in the Lirene therapeutic intimate hygiene lotion helps to maintain natural acidic pH in intimate areas, and so prevents the development of infections and fungal issues.

Irritation of intimate areas can also be prevented with simple, everyday habits. In addition to maintaining proper hygiene, you should also make sure your diet is varied and rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help maintain the health of tissues and the body's immunity. Drinking a minimum of 1.5 litres helps you stay adequately hydrated to prevent the epidermis and mucous membranes from drying out. Pharmacies also sell prebiotics with lactic acid that help maintain the proper pH of intimate areas. When using public toilets, wash your hands thoroughly and use toilet seat covers to help avoid intimate infections. If you have a tendency to become irritated during menstruation, try replacing tampons, which dry the vaginal mucosa, with pads or a reusable silicone menstrual cup, which is becoming increasingly popular among women who care about the health of their intimate areas and the environment, reducing the amount of waste produced.

Wearing breathable underwear made of natural fabrics will also help avoid irritation and ensure adequate air reaches the skin and mucous membranes in intimate areas, which will make you comfortable and help avoid recurring irritation and infections.
