Women tend to spend a lot of time and money on skincare. We want our skin to look youthful, supple and smooth. The key to younger healthy looking skin is sufficient moisture. In humid tropical climates, our skin naturally looks and feels healthier, and the women of the tropics generally look much younger than those who live in dryer climates. That is why it is so important for us to stay hydrated and keep our skin properly moisturized.

Most women purchase expensive anti-aging skin products to moisturize their face and body, but what about moisturizing their vaginas? Yes, I did say vagina. As we age, our skin (including vaginal tissue) dries up and can become wrinkly. It is just as important to moisturize our private parts, as it is the rest of our skin. However, we often don’t consider attending to our discreet areas, especially when they are not as easily visible. – Out of sight, out of mind, so to speak. If someone else, such as your lover, has a better view of your aging vagina than you do, they may notice changes in the way it looks and feels. So what can we do to maintain a healthy youthful yoni?

As the hormones in our bodies change over the years, vaginal secretions decrease for most women. A lack of natural lubrication and a thinning vaginal wall are a part of the natural aging process. Most women over 40 experience varying degrees of vaginal dryness, which can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful – especially during sex or masturbation. Whether you experience dryness or not, it is important to keep your vagina healthy by using an all-natural moisture-rich lubricant.

You may think, “Not MY vagina! I’ve never needed any extra lube, as I still have plenty of juiciness.” It is not a bad thing to use additional lubrication; in fact it is good for you! Get over the stigma that “lube is for old people”. Women of all ages benefit from using extra lubrication as it helps sustain long-lasting pleasure. Their partners equally enjoy the easy-glide action as there is less resistance – “the wetter the better” as they say. A good personal lubricant is most appreciated when experiencing that earth-shaking, mind-blowing, down and dirty, can’t walk straight the next day kind of sex! (grin)

So what kind of lube is best? This is the most imperative question, as you’ll want to make the healthiest choice for what products you use on (and inside) this highly sensitive area. The main thing to look for is a water-based lubricant, as the oil-based lubes are not good for your health, and are not latex condom compatible. Most of the leading brands contain petroleum-based glycol, parabens, glycerin and other harsh chemicals. The best one I have found is The Natural Premium Personal Lubricant, as its water-based formula contains carrageenan – moisture-rich marine algae extract with amazing potential health benefits. The Natural also contains organic aloe and vitamin E to soothe and heal sensitive tissue, as well as organic agave inulin – a prebiotic to maintain healthy microflora, also citric acid for pH balance.

What is most interesting and highly beneficial about the ingredient carrageenan, is that it has been clinically studied to help prevent cervical cancer, HIV, HPV and other STDs. This lube is compatible to use with latex condoms. Many women use The Natural Personal Lubricant on a daily basis, even when they are not having sex. Its easy airless (no mess) pump dispenses a small amount to conveniently use after you shower or before you go to bed. It is also great to use as an aftershave on your legs, underarm and genital area, as it soothes and moisturizes the skin relieving razor sting and those little red shaving bumps. I’ve even heard of some people using this particular lubricant on sunburns, as it restores moisture and can help soothe sunburned skin.

The Natural Personal Lubricant is available to purchase on-line, or at several national retailers such as The Vitamin Shoppe and Zellers. For a limited time, Oceanus Naturals is offering a free 4 oz. bottle of Carrageenan Natural Lubricant with any on-line purchase, which is the same product as The Natural – just in old packaging they are phasing out. Enjoy the highest quality lube available for free while it lasts! Stay healthy and juicy – inside and out!
