The Ultimate Guide to Caring for Your Panties During the Rainy Season

Our lovely Filipinas often find themselves facing the challenges of extreme humidity. Whether they are seeking solace indoors within the comfort of their homes or venturing outdoors, this is a common struggle, particularly during the rainy season. Moisture is the enemy of many ladies. It brings about unwelcome transformations that can truly disrupt our well-being. From the dreaded frizzier hair to the bane of acne-prone skin, not to mention the overall unpleasant and sticky sensation that lingers throughout the day.

Today, I want to shed light on a topic that many women tend to keep to themselves: the impact of humidity on our intimate areas. It's time to have an open and honest conversation about this often overlooked aspect of our health and well-being.

Here are some fabulous tips from the amazing Carefree ambassador, Rei Germar, that will surely help you conquer those pesky kulob and icky feels that tend to creep up on us during this rainy season:

  • It is crucial to prioritize your well-being by ensuring that you have your rainy-day essentials readily available at all times.

To ensure optimal protection from the rain, it is essential to equip yourself with practical essentials such as foldable umbrellas, raincoats, and even compact towels. These items will not only shield you from the elements but also help maintain your overall well-being during wet weather conditions.

Understanding the importance of maintaining a radiant appearance throughout the day not only boosts my confidence but also aids in warding off that unpleasant sensation that tends to creep in, particularly during dreary weather conditions.

Dr. May Gonzaga, a gynecologist, also shares a few tips that can help Filipinas keep their intimate areas clean and fresh during this time of the year. Dr. Gonzaga notes, "The humid season is when we should pay more attention to our personal hygiene and intimate areas because it makes women more susceptible to infections. Anything that increases the retention of heat, sweat, and wetness can lead to intimate discomforts, and more importantly, it can make the abnormal bacteria flourish and thrive, which can lead to vulvar, vaginal, and urinary tract infections, peculiar foul-smelling smells, and abnormal unwanted discharges from the intimate area. To keep us ladies clean and fresh this humid season, we should have good healthy habits, proper intimate hygiene, and use natural, thin, light, unscented, comfortable cotton, hypoallergenic undergarments, and pantyliners to keep us dry the whole day and to minimize the building up of bacteria and infections.”

To avoid and minimize the buildup of bad bacteria in the intimate area and thereby prevent possible infections & the discomfort that goes with it, Dr. Gonzaga also recommends that ladies have a healthy lifestyle in general in terms of diet and exercise,  with an emphasis on:

1. Practicing a habit of good feminine "hygiene"

Always wash and wipe from front to back! Use water and mild soaps only, and washing the intimate area once to two times a day is adequate. Once you overwash, you will wash away the good, healthy bacteria. And when this happens, the 'bad' bacteria may colonize and give symptoms of unpleasant odors, discharge, and infections.

2. Wear breathable clothes

Using cotton, comfortable underwear instead of those synthetic fiber panties can lead to irritation, itchiness, inflammation, and even infections. Avoid wearing tight clothes like tight undergarments, tight skinny jeans, tight pants, or tight leggings that do not allow air to pass through your intimate area. Because our intimate area also needs to breathe. By allowing fresh air to pass through the area, it minimizes perspiration, gives one more comfort, and makes one less susceptible to irritation and infections.

3. By using a natural, thin, light, unscented, comfortable, cotton, hypoallergenic pantyliners to keep the vulvar area clean and dry the whole day.

Changing every 3 to 5 hours a day, depending on the day of the cycle, is recommended. This is to prevent vaginal irritations, itching, inflammation, infections, and unpleasant odors and discharges from occurring.

Alex Burgos, brand manager, shares, “As the leading pantyliner brand, Carefree believes that Filipinas should not be bothered and not be accustomed to the icky sensation within the vaginal area. We advocate for women to not only be clean, but to be Carefree clean.”
