14 Tips To Keep Your Vagina Looking Sexy

As we grow older, so do our lady parts, but there are ways we can delay the aging process and keep our privates looking young and healthy. There are many things that can affect the appearance of our lady parts and, as we age, the repeated wear and tear of our parts begins to take its toll.

First and foremost, when taking care of your lady parts avoid all unnecessary chemicals. Keep scented products away from the area because these can cause irritation and even a yeast infection. Scented pads should be tossed and a natural alternative or unscented product should be used instead. Also, avoid using body lotions and face creams down there. What is safe for your face may not be safe for the va-jay-jay and can cause discomfort or itching.

When all else fails and you feel that your sex life and personal self-confidence has diminished because of your body's natural aging process, seek medical help. There are many types of vaginal rejuvenation treatments available to women. Some, such as the MonaLisa Touch, are a painless laser treatment completed over three visits.

Above all, stay healthy. Eat the right foods, exercise, and drink plenty of liquids. Just a bit of common sense can make a world of difference for your vagina.

14 Ben Wa Balls

Years ago, Ben Wa balls were some naughty thing women would whisper about when the kids and husbands were out of earshot. This is one of those instances where the Internet deserves repeated praise for raising our va-jay-jay awareness. Ben Wa balls are not a dirty perversion, but an exercise tool for the va-jay-jay. Sometimes called vagina weights, women insert them inside themselves and begin to clench them using their vaginal muscles. You are basically doing Kegel exercises with the balls and the workout can be far more intense than doing Kegels without the Ben Wa balls.

13 Trim it or Shave it

As you get older, you may begin to notice a strand or two of white or gray pubic hair. At first, you can just pluck those out if you want, but eventually you will get more of them. Your options are simple: either keep the area well trimmed to reduce their appearance, or shave off all of your pubic hair. Dying your pubic hair should not be an option. It introduces harsh chemicals to a very sensitive area, and it would need to be done by a professional. Instead, stick with the trim or the full on shave. An added benefit to these two solutions is that many women claim increased sexual sensitivity down there when there is fewer or no hairs.

12 Kegel Exercises

You have probably heard about Kegel exercises, but are you actually doing them? Kegel exercises help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, creating a tighter vagina, preventing urinary incontinence, and ultimately making sex feel even better. Many women who have tried to do Kegels probably aren’t doing them correctly, or they aren’t holding the squeeze for enough time. To do a proper Kegel squeeze, focus on squeezing just your vag muscles, as though you were holding onto your man’s penis inside of you, and hold those muscles for five seconds before releasing. Do 100 Kegel squeezes three times a day, for a total of 300 Kegels daily.

Now you can even step-up your Kegel game with the kGoal, which is a Fit Bit for your vagina. How does it work? Basically like any old Fit Bit that tracks your progress, this little toy comes with a twist. The device vibrates to let you know you're doing it right, and you can even amp up the vibration levels for a little more motivation!

11 Keep it Safe

STDs, such as venereal warts and genital herpes, can wreak havoc on the appearance of your lady parts, not to mention your overall health. The best way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases when you are sexually active is to use a condom. There are numerous varieties of latex condoms available on the market, and there are also female condoms if you want to change up the game. The only safe time to not use a condom is when you are in a monogamous relationship, and after both you and your partner have been tested and cleared of any venereal diseases.

10 Do the Deed

Your lady parts need stimulation and increased blood flow to stay healthy and young. That means you should stay sexually active with or without a partner. Orgasms need stimulation, and they naturally increase the blood flow to that area. They also work your pelvic floor muscles, causing them to contract and release. So, don’t be shy with yourself or your partner. Have sex, especially safe sex, more often for the benefit of your va-jay-jay.

9 Drink Water

Keep the skin all over your body, including the skin on your lady parts, hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Drinking water helps keep your skin moisturized, young looking, and healthy. To find out just how much water you should be drinking each day, step on the scale. For every pound you weigh in at, you should drink between .5 to 1 ounce of water. For example, if you weigh in at 120 pounds, you should be drinking 60 to 120 ounces of water each day.

8 Cushioned Bike Seat

Whether you ride a bicycle or a stationary bike, pay attention to how your lady parts feel as you ride your bike and after you are finished riding it. A hard bike seat can cut off the circulation in your lower parts and cause numbness. Bike seats may also cause friction and can actually stretch your labia if you are not careful. When riding your bike, keep your handle bars positioned higher than your bike seat, so that you are not leaning forward and putting too much pressure on your va-jay-jay. Minimize friction with proper seat cushioning and wear cushioned bike pants.

7 Use Gentle Soap

Avoid washing your lower parts with harsh, fragrant soaps. Heavily scented soaps can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions in a place where you don’t want that sort of trouble. Instead, use a mild, unscented soap to clean your lady parts, and use the soap on the outer parts only. Your inner vag is self cleaning and does not need to be washed out with soap and water. Doing so could change the pH balance inside of your vagina and lead to an unpleasant infection. Also, avoid vigorous scrubbing in that area to avoid introducing bacteria into the opening, or causing unwanted tears and stretching.

6 Lube it up

Repeat after me: Lube is fun. Not only that, but it helps prevent friction and discomfort when you are experiencing dryness down there. Even when you don’t have a problem with dryness, the extra lube is fun for both you and your partner. Use a water based or silicone based lube. Oil based lubricants, such as petroleum jelly, can break down and weaken latex condoms, increasing your risk of pregnancy or disease.

5 Ditch the Skin Tight Jeans

Skin tight jeans can pinch the nerve in your groin and cause numbness down there, and sometimes even pain. If you feel that you must wear them, wear them in public and take them off as soon as you return back home. The best type of pants for your lady parts are made of loose, breathable materials, such as cotton. Your underwear should also be made of cotton to allow your skin to breathe. At bedtime, go commando and skip out on wearing underwear. If you don’t feel comfortable without bottoms on in bed, switch to wearing loose, cotton pajama bottoms, or men’s cotton boxer shorts.

4 Be on Top

Don’t always be a bottom girl when having sex with your partner. Being on the bottom, missionary style, can cause stretching to your lady parts because you are not in control of the motion or the depth. Switch things up now and again and take top place. Being on top gives you more control over the action and can be a great work out too. You can even practice your Kegel exercises while you're up there, just for the fun of it, and to see how he reacts.

3 Give up Douching

There was a time, a few decades ago, when women thought douching was the ultimate in health care for their vagina. Floral scented products were all the rage, and women strove to get their va-jay-jays to smell like meadow flowers. Lucky for us, the times have changed, and women are beginning to understand that their lady parts don’t need floral irrigation. Besides smelling weird, douches can change the pH balance of the vagina and, ultimately, cause bacterial infections. For a healthy, natural va-jay-jay, keep the chemical baths away and get rid of the douche bag.

2 Sit on a Fitness Ball

It is time to get rid of your office chair for good and switch over to sitting on an exercise or Swiss ball. Many people have already made the switch over to sitting on a ball, because it helps work your core and can help with your sitting posture as well. Incidentally, sitting on the exercise ball will also give your vag muscles a workout and you won’t even realize that it is happening. How awesome is that? Experts say that you only need to switch your chair for the ball for 15 minutes a day to get some of the benefits, but why not make the switch permanent?

1 Keep a Healthy Weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is important to keeping your lady parts looking young. When you gain a lot of weight and then lose that weight, the yo-yo effect can stretch the skin between your legs. On the other hand, if you lose too much weight, you also run the risk of losing the fat that keeps your labia majora looking plump. Once you lose that plumpness, you can not get it back unless you go through vaginal rejuvenation surgery.
