We all know the importance of moisturizing our skin. Not only does dryness make your skin age faster, but it just feels better when it’s hydrated. All my friends use moisturizer on their faces. In fact, most of us probably spend a lot more than we care to admit on products to make sure our faces and bodies are well moisturized. It’s been the topic of conversation more than a few times when I’ve been hanging out with friends over a cup of coffee. But making sure our intimate area is hydrated is not something we think about, or talk about for that matter! However, especially as we age, dryness can become a problem. Fortunately, it’s an easy problem to rectify.
Lubrigyn Lotion is a creamy cleansing formula for daily use. It can be used in the shower just like you use soap. In fact, if you wouldn’t use soap on your face, why would you use it on other areas that are sensitive to dryness? Lubrigyn Lotion also can be applied with a tissue, without water, and even comes with a package of wipes for when you’re on-the-go. Besides being a soothing humectant, with sweet almond, jojoba and olive oils, as well as chamomile and aloe vera. Lubrigyn also contains sodium hyaluronate, which is prevalent in younger skin, but diminishes as we age. Fortunately, when we use products with sodium hyaluronate, it helps our skin hold onto water. What I love is that because sodium hyaluronate occurs naturally in my skin anyway, I’m just adding back some of the moisture that is lost with age. Other lubricants in America do not have this active (and important!) ingredient. Women in Europe have been using Lubrigyn since 2004, but it has only recently been FDA approved here in the US.
But older women aren’t the only ones who can benefit from Lubrigyn products. Younger women who are on birth control and anyone who uses allergy medications can suffer from dryness. In fact, even stress can contribute.
Along with the other fun symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes, anxiety, and sleep problems, 40-60% of women suffer from dryness in their intimate area. On top of it just being uncomfortable, dryness can also make getting intimate downright painful. If there is something you can do about it, why wouldn’t you?
Lubrigyn Lotion is now readily available at your local CVS and online. For more extensive moisturizing, Lubrigyn Cream is a more concentrated version of the lotion. And as I mentioned before, the wipes are great to have on hand for when you need them. In fact, right now you can get Lubrigyn Lotion for about $12 at CVS, and it comes with a free pack of wipes.
