Stay Protected

Time for another wallpaper loves! But off the series for now. Today, I want to share something different. Ladies, let’s talk about feminine care. Gents, you might want to skip this. This might get a little awkward. Hehe.

Last week, I attended this fun pamper session with fellow bloggers. But it wasn’t a typical sesh. Aside from the manicure and pedicure, we also got to participate in this very intimate and relevant discussion led by Dr. Lourdes Escobar, an OB-Gynecologist. I actually picked up a couple of new facts that I’m pretty sure you’d also find interesting if you were there. Like did you know that the normal vaginal flora changes as the woman ages? This means that our needs change as we mature. And because of this, we should be choosing a feminine wash with the right pH level specific to our needs. Bet you didn’t know that! I didn’t. Haha.

So she introduced to us to naFlora. Because only naFlora offers specific variants for us women. There’s naFlora Protect, naFlora Restore and naFlora Moisture. The first 2, Protect and Restore, have 3.5 to 4.5 pH levels and are clinically designed to be used by reproductive women (like me!) The Moisture, on the other hand, is made specifically for women in menopause. This has a higher and more appropriate pH level of 6.0 – 7.5.

My mom immediately called dibs on the Moisture variant once she saw the box of naFlora bottles I brought home. Cause apparently, she’s been using naFlora for quite some time now. And she loves it! :) She told me that it’s the only brand in the market that carries fem wash for women her age.

Lately, I’ve also been using the Protect variant, the one that’s made for everyday use. The bottle says that it contains lactic acid to help maintain and protect the natural flora. I mean, I don’t literally feel or see the effects but I’m sure it’s doing wonders for me. And I don’t get irritations or anything. It just helps me feel fresh and more protected everyday. And especially during my time of the month! I know it’s during those days that I have to be extra hygienic. But knowing the kind of solution they put in this wash, I feel clean and safe. :)

My uniform lately. Either this or an all black ensemble. It’s definitely back to basics season. I’m not complaining though. :)

Just a quick hello for now guys! My October is turning out to be quite full. Yikes. I actually just got back from Hong Kong last night and tomorrow I’m heading out again to Seoul, Korea. Talk about hectic, huh? Will try my best to update the blog while I’m there though! :) Hope you guys are having a good month so far too!

Catch you guys soon! Take care!

All this normcore plainness has got me so picky with my prints. It’s like suddenly all the basics look sooo good and less and less prints look attractive to me. But if I do wear them it only means that I really do like them. Case in point: this old favorite palm top and this new painted stripe trouser. This doesn’t mean that I’m all ready to go back to the whole prints thing though. I just think these two look super together. :)
