Self Care for the Puss Puss – 5 Vaginal Health Best Practices To Keep Your Pussy Feeling Right

Let’s face it ladies. Not all of us have a super intimate relationship with our puss pusses. If you’re thinking to yourself, I’ve never heard “it” called a “puss puss” before, you’re probably right. I made it up! For some reason, the term vag doesn’t always do it for me. But, the terms “pussy” and “puss puss” make me feel fabulous and slightly daring.

It’s taken me a while to get comfortable with my own “puss puss,” but on my journey, I’ve learned that ol’ girl needs love! Taking care of yourself means taking care of every part of yourself! And yes, you’ve guessed it, that includes your puss puss.

There are a number of reasons why women don’t always feel connected to the power in their puss pusses.

For some people, it’s because they’ve been raised to believe their private part is purely sexual and doesn’t need any attention or thought outside of sexual experiences. For others, it’s because they feel their puss puss is gross, smelly, or strange.

Many women have never actually seen another woman’s vagina. So, we may subconsciously wonder, “is my vagina normal?” “Are you lower lips extra large?” “Is this scent normal?”

As women, we don’t often talk about our vaginas, leading our area to subconsciously be associated with shame for some. Well, ain’t nobody got time for shame about any part ourselves! You are a beautiful being with a beautiful puss puss that deserves some tender, loving care.

Here’s a look at 5 vaginal health best practices to keep your pussy feeling right

Look at your Puss Puss Regularly

When was the last time you looked at your puss puss? For many of us, it’s been a while. I don’t mean glanced down at it while shaving in the shower. I mean really looking at it, inspecting it, and exploring it with your eyes. While it’s not as easy for us to view our lady parts as it is for males to view their anatomy, we can still take a look at our girl!

Take a handheld mirror and drop into a deep squat with your knees facing outwards. Think sumo squat. Angle the mirror so you can see your puss puss in all it’s glory and take a deep breath. Notice how you feel when you do this. Do you feel uncomfortable? Do you feel disgust? Do you smile? Do you feel shame?

The goal of this exercise is to get you comfortable with the way your body looks. After all, your puss puss is a beautiful and powerful part of you. Learn to love how it looks! Try saying this affirmation as you look at your puss puss in the mirror: “My female parts are beautiful, powerful, and intimately mine. I love every part of me.” Shoot to do this once a week. After a couple of weeks, you’ll feel more comfortable looking at your girl. You may even say, “Oh, hey girl!”

Avoid Excessive Cleaning of Your Puss Puss

This is a big one. Your vagina is perfect and self-cleansing. God gave it everything it needs to stay clean and remove anything that doesn’t need to be there. I know it’s tempting to purchase special soaps, douches and smelly things for your vagina. But, the truth is, you really don’t need it and doing so can actually increase your chances of getting bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection.

I believe excessing cleaning of the vagina goes back to the idea that your vagina is “unclean” in some way. It’s not. It’s perfect, just the way it is. The next time you have the urge to excessively scrub your puss puss, try this affirmation: “My pussy is perfect, just the way it is. I love my pussy.”

Don’t Hesitate to See a Doctor When You Feel a Consistent Itch

We all know that moment. That moment when you feel the dreaded itch down yonder. It’s easy to rush to your local Wal Mart and pick up any cream that has the word “vaginal” on the tube. While that may work in many cases, I wholeheartedly believe giving yourself the absolute best care you can manage and getting as much information as possible is an act of self-love and self-care.

If you feel itching in your nether regions, go to your local Urgent Care or make an appointment with your primary care physician. They can test you for a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, various STD’s and more. When in doubt, see someone. Even if it turns out to be nothing, you can rest assured knowing you prioritized your health and learned something new.

Let Ol’ Girl Breathe

Sis, I know you love those lace panties. But, sometimes you need to slide them off. Your puss puss needs to breathe too and while you’re off looking snatched in your tight pants, she’s begging for air. So, if you choose to rock your tight pants by day, let your puss puss breathe at night. It’s a good practice to sleep without underwear at night.

It’s also a great idea to break up your tight pants days with skirt, dress and loose pants days. In addition to supporting your vaginal health, you get the added benefit of feeling good. There’s nothing like the feeling of a little breeze flowing over your precious parts.

Moisturize Down There

Okay, I admit it, I am a bit of a moisturizing maniac. I can’t go a day without moisturizing some part of my body. But, I’ve learned, that it’s important to moisturize down there as well. I’m not talking about down there near your vulva. I’m talking about moisturizing where your pubic hair grows on the front part of your vaginal area.

The skin down there gets dry, just like anywhere else on your body. However, it’s not a good idea to use the scented or thick lotions you use on your body, on your puss puss area. Instead, try applying a light layer of natural oil to the area after drying off from your shower. Personally, I use coconut oil and I’m good to go.

There you have it. 5 practical things you can do to keep your pussy feeling right. Happy puss puss self-caring!
