10 stars who didn't hesitate to tell about their intimate hygieneBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/10-stars-who-didnt-hesitate-to-tell-about-their-intimate-hygiene
The topic of intimate health for most of us is intimate, if not forbidden: sometimes even in the circle of close friends I do not want to share such secrets. Many celebrities have similar principles: their private life is inviolable, and you will never hear any details from their mouths.
But still there are stars who do not believe that happiness loves silence: they talk about their relationships, sex and health in almost every interview. And some celebrities are not averse at all to warm up interest in their person and can not resist piquant comments about their care for ... an intimate place. Sometimes, however, their stories can be shocking.
It has long been clear to many that Gwyneth Paltrow claims to be a health guru: the actress preaches proper nutrition, sports and even published a book with her recipes.
However, the star went further and began to literally delve into the wilds. For the health of the female reproductive system, she recommends doing infrared steam baths with wormwood: "You sit on something like a throne, and the combination of infrared waves with steam with wormwood cleanses the uterus. It's not just something like a shower: this procedure balances the level of estrogen." This female hormone affects not only the state of health, but also mood, weight and libido.
So, according to Gwyneth, this way you can achieve significant positive changes in your life: from improving reproductive health to healing from depression. After the actress published an article about this method on her personal website, Internet users were divided into two camps: some consider the idea nonsense, while others tend to believe that there is something in it. Paltrow in his defense says: "The effect of this spa impressed me so much that I became interested in the origin of the procedure. It turns out that for hundreds of years they have been doing this in Korea. Thousands of women can't be wrong!"
However, gynecologists are not so rosy in their forecasts and claim that a steam shower can be dangerous for the vagina, and a herbal steam shower is even more harmful. According to doctors, the uterus does not need to be "cleaned": this procedure can disrupt the microflora, cause excessive growth of harmful bacteria and infection.
And if it already exists, it can lead to its further spread. This, in turn, leads to pelvic inflammatory diseases and serious health problems. In addition, the human body is a smart system capable of self—cleaning, and it is certainly not necessary to help it with questionable methods.
As soon as we had time to digest the information about steam baths, Gwyneth gave us a new reason to think. On her website about a healthy lifestyle, she published material about "vaginal jade eggs". Apparently, Paltrow is committed to the Eastern approach to wellness, because she learned this method from ancient Chinese treatises.
"I'm not shy about giving advice on improving sexual life and female reproductive health," the actress wrote. — This method was kept secret by the royal dynasty of China for a long time. Queens and concubines used it in order to stay "in shape", to feed off the energy of jade and get rid of negativity with it." Intrigued?
The method is that a jade egg the size of a golf ball is placed in the vagina, and you need to walk with this "treasure" all day. However, Gwyneth claims that the procedure can be carried out at night — while you sleep. According to the star, you need to do this regularly: this way you will improve reproductive health, the quality of orgasms, the tone of the vaginal muscles and achieve a balance of female energy.
Gynecologists, as you might guess, are not at all enthusiastic about this idea: "In this way you will achieve absolutely nothing: no hormonal balance, no "cleansing". There is no scientific evidence for this, but I can tell you for sure that it is impossible from the point of view of biology! — comments Dr. Jen Gunter from University of San Francisco. — If we talk about the consequences, it can lead to infection and even toxic shock. The muscles of the vagina are not designed to be in constant contact with any object."
And what about vitamins for an intimate place? Do you think we're joking? But Shailene Woodley is serious.
In an interview, the actress said: "I once read an article by a naturopath about the health of the genitals. So, he said that there is nothing better for the vagina than vitamin D. If you feel uncomfortable "there", just go to sunbathe, spread your legs and feel yourself energized!"
However, gynecologists advise to be careful: it turns out that prolonged exposure to the sun harms not only the skin, but also the genitals. For example, it is in the summer that the female body is most at risk of thrush, because overheating of the body contributes to disruption of the normal microflora of the vagina.
You also need to be careful when, after a long stay in the heat, you go swimming in cool water: sudden temperature changes can also cause the disease. If you have endometriosis, you need to be doubly careful: prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to complications. However, it is not necessary to completely exclude insolation: moderation is important here.
The Kardashian sisters can't keep quiet about anything. The intimate topic, on which half of the representatives of the clan had something to say, was no exception.
So, Courtney once told on one of the talk shows that she found a mask for sexual pleasures belonging to Kim. The same replied to her sister: "And I found a jar of mayonnaise under your bed, with which you smear your vagina!"
According to Courtney, she uses the substance purely for the sake of cosmetic effect: so the bikini area looks smooth and well-groomed. Maybe she was joking? In any case, as they say, no matter what the child enjoys…
But Khloe Kardashian does not share her sister's passion for folk methods and prefers to improve the appearance of an intimate place with the help of advanced medical devices. For example, using a laser. And we are not talking about laser hair removal.
Simplistically, the laser that Chloe uses is a wand that is inserted by a doctor into the vagina. It heats the tissues, stimulates the production of collagen and thus restores the elasticity of the organ.
The girl also said that her sisters also resorted to this procedure: "Laser regeneration is an amazing thing. In my family, everyone who has children used such a thing." According to doctors, the procedure is intended for women who have given birth and is a non-surgical alternative to vaginoplasty. Thanks to radio frequency waves, stretched muscles return to their previous shape, the vagina narrows, dryness and discomfort disappear. Also, this method can solve the problem of incontinence. But gynecologists warn that during pregnancy and vaginal infections, the laser is categorically contraindicated, and among the side effects may be inflammation and swelling.
Chloe complements the procedure of laser rejuvenation of the vagina with self-care with vitamin E oil.
On her website, the star of the reality show "The Kardashian Family" published a couple of tips on what to do to make an intimate place always look attractive: "Use vitamin E. No kidding: it really makes the muscles of the vaginal walls strong!"
Doctors say that vitamin E suppositories really have a positive effect on the health of the vaginal mucosa: they reduce dryness, restore elasticity and do not have side effects. It is not for nothing that it is considered a beauty vitamin: it improves blood circulation, slows down the aging process, destroys free radicals, strengthens the immune system and is even used in the treatment of PMS. However, as for the strong walls of the vagina, gynecologists throw up their hands here: there is no scientific evidence that vitamin strengthens them.
We all feel sad after parting with loved ones: someone is killed for a few days, and then comes to his senses, and someone needs more radical ways of consolation. Jennifer Love Hewitt seems to be one of the second. After parting with another boyfriend, she decorates an intimate place with rhinestones.
However, the actress does not consider her "hobby" shameful or stupid at all, but, on the contrary, encourages everyone to follow her example. In his book The Day I Shot Cupid ("The Day I Shot Cupid") she devoted an entire chapter to describing this method. Its essence is that with the help of Svarowski crystals, you can lay out any drawing or inscription on the waxed bikini area.
It was Jennifer who popularized this technique: after her interview, in which she talked about this "innovative" way to overcome the pain of parting, several salons opened in Los Angeles that combine waxing with the decoration of intimate places with rhinestones. The crystals have an adhesive layer that allows them to stay on the skin for about 5 days. "I love this procedure: after it, I sparkle like a disco ball!" — says the actress.
However, as you might guess, gynecologists and dermatologists are not thrilled with it: the decoration increases the risk of infection, and the glue can cause irritation on the skin already damaged by epilation. How this unusual method can help to survive a breakup is not entirely clear. Probably, a woman gains self-confidence, and at the karmic level she becomes ready for a new love?
Singer Candi Burrass, who participated in the show "Real Housewives of Atlanta", also did not stay away and spoke about her methods of caring for an intimate place. However, it is difficult to call it care: she puts a little sugar inside. The purpose of such a procedure is not entirely clear, because Kandy did not say anything else, but it can be assumed that she does it for the sake of sexual pleasures.
However, gynecologists advise using safer methods for experiments in bed. Doctors say that sugar cannot be completely removed from the vagina immediately, and its remnants there can cause an imbalance of microflora and, as a result, yeast infection, which is accompanied by itching, burning and rash.
We all know that Jennifer Lawrence is capable of speaking publicly about anything. So on one of the talk shows, she admitted that she has problems with urinary incontinence when she is scared.
In order to get rid of the problem, the actress strengthens the muscles of the vaginal walls in the traditional way, namely Kegel exercises. In everyday life, these muscles are almost not involved, so over time they lose elasticity and become weak. Basically, this happens around the age of 40, but there are cases when the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles happens earlier: due to operations, childbirth or hormonal failure.
Back in the middle of the XX century, gynecologist Arnold Kegel invented exercises for intimate muscles, which women all over the world use to this day. Such trainings help to prepare for the upcoming pregnancy, childbirth, are used for the prevention and treatment of urinary incontinence, tissue repair after the birth of a child and to maintain sexual health.
Cameron Diaz devoted an entire chapter to the intimate place in her "Book on Longevity", which begins with the following words: "Hello, pretty woman! Do you know that your vagina is great?" The actress claims that the role of the sexual organ is underestimated by some, while others, on the contrary, are obsessed with this topic, which is wrong.
However, it seems that Cameron contradicts herself: in one interview, she admitted that she sometimes sings mantras to her vagina. "You have to treat it like a beautiful delicate flower," the actress went on to say. — Take care of it: give it water and feed, because it needs nutrition. It's hungry." Diaz's words are not surprising, considering the scrupulousness with which she approached the writing of the section about the intimate organ, which is called 6 juicy facts about vaginas (6 juicy facts about the vagina).
Gynecologists just shrug their hands: there is no scientific evidence of the effectiveness of mantras for the health of the genitals. But if you want to get your nervous system in order, meditation and chanting mantras, as one of the ways, may well help.
