If you’re planning a vacation with your partner or with your friends, you know it’s going to be a memorable one. You want to look your best, whether you are going to a cold place all wrapped in layers or showing off that skin at the beach. While all of this is true, you also need to prepare your lady parts to avoid any embarrassing moments.
So, if you’re not sure how to prepare your lady parts for this holiday, there are some easy steps you can consider to feel comfortable and confident.
Ways To Prepare Your Lady Parts For A Holiday
Here are six ways you can prepare your private parts for an amazing holiday time so you don’t have to limit your fun.
1. Groom Well Down There
If you are going to show your skin wearing a bikini or a swimsuit at the beach, then you may want to get rid of the hair down there. Getting rid of hair in your private parts can be a tough task.
Shaving and waxing are two easy ways you can get rid of the unwanted hair, provided it’s done right. Shaving can cause irritation and uncomfortable bumps on your lady parts; therefore, it is important to use a new razor and a shaving cream or a mild soap when you shave. Make sure you shave in the direction of your hair.
If you prefer to get a bikini wax instead, make sure you avoid using exfoliants in the area a few days before your appointment. Trim your pubic hair to about a quarter of an inch. If your hair is shorter, it may not come off with the wax or may lead to ingrown hairs. If your hair is longer, it can be quite painful.
2. Skip Your Period If Your Dates Overlap
It could be one of your nightmares when your vacation dates fall exactly on your period dates. But, here’s good news – it is okay to use birth control pills to extend the dates while you are on your holidays. However, make sure you speak to your doctor before taking any medications to stop your periods.
If you plan to skip the doctor’s visit, it’s not okay to ask your friend to share her pill because no two women have the same body type. So, if your period cycle falls on those days you’ve planned a trip, you may skip your periods using birth control after speaking with your doctor.
3. Take Frequent Pee Breaks
When you plan your trip, it may take hours or maybe even days to get to your destination. But, you cannot compromise on your health when you are holidaying. Irrespective of how you plan to get to your holiday destination – road, rail, or off-road transport – make sure you empty your bladder at regular intervals. In other words, take frequent pee breaks so you don’t put yourself at the risk of developing a urinary tract infection. Holding in your pee can cause bacteria to grow, so remember to pee on your fun journey.
If you plan to have sex on your holiday, make sure you pee before and after sex to flush out the bacteria that may cause an infection otherwise.
4. Pack Your Essentials If You Plan To Have Sex
Holiday sex is a different experience – mostly a “good” different. If you are traveling with your partner and plan to have some intimate time with each other behind doors, make sure you pack the right things in your bag.
For instance, if you use lubes, don’t forget to pack the ones you use regularly. You don’t want to take the chance of buying it elsewhere because a new lube of another brand may cause irritation, resulting in an imbalance in the vaginal bacteria. And not to forget, protected sex is always a good decision. So, don’t forget to pack condoms and enjoy your holiday sex!
5. Change Your Wet Clothes To Dry Ones
After you are done swimming in the pool or in the water at the beach, it’s time to change your wet swim wear to dry clothes. This is important because a tight and moist environment makes an ideal home for yeast causing yeast infections in your lady parts.
To avoid unpleasant infections down there, change your wet clothes to dry, cotton ones after you’ve had a good time playing in the water.
6. Protect Your Lady Parts From The Sun
If you plan to go skinny dipping in your private pool or an isolated beach, don’t forget to apply sunscreen even near your lady parts. Getting your private parts sunburned is not the best idea of a fun holiday. So, apply sunscreen, like you would to your other parts of the body, to protect your lady parts when you decide to strip yourself completely naked. Don’t forget to reapply it every two to three hours.
So, the next time you plan your vacation, don’t forget to involve your lady parts in the holiday mood, too!
