When women are menstruating, the sensitive areas of the skin are most vulnerable to damage. Surveys show that 73% of women experience local itching and burning during menstruation. This is mostly caused by the use of non-breathable sanitary napkins. Therefore, it is very important to choose the right sanitary napkin in order to have a safe period. Sanitary stickers are generally composed of three parts: the surface layer, the absorbing layer and the bottom layer, and the materials and functions of these three parts must be considered when using them first.
If the sanitary napkin is damp or stored for too long, it will deteriorate and become contaminated even if it is not opened. Generally, sanitary napkins are made of non-woven fabrics, which are fibrous materials. After being wet, the materials deteriorate, and bacteria are easy to invade and multiply; sanitary napkins are sterile by using high-temperature disinfection methods. There is no guarantee of sterility. Therefore, when using environmentally friendly sanitary napkins, pay attention to the validity period, do not buy too much at one time, and do not store them for a long time at home. After unpacking, the sanitary napkin should be placed in a dry, clean and sterile environment, and should not be used after it is damp or expired.
Sanitary napkins should be stored in a dry, sterile environment with a certain expiration date. If the sanitary napkin is damp or stored for a long time, it will deteriorate and become contaminated even if it is not opened. Sanitary napkins are best purchased and used every month, and those that cannot be used up can be stored in a small cotton cloth bag.
Internal and external care can be completely refreshing. During menstruation, you should listen to more soothing music, and do some gentle physical activities or exercise appropriately; in terms of diet, eat less high-fat and high-calorie foods, and eat more light foods such as tomatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, soybeans, and vegetables. Maintaining a happy mood and a reasonable dietary structure can increase the body's resistance to foreign bacteria and toxins, and reduce infection and outbreaks.
When choosing sanitary napkins, pay attention to the air permeability and validity period of the material; wash hands before use to avoid contamination of sanitary napkins with germ-carrying hands; it is best to change sanitary napkins, pads and tampons every 2 hours, even if the menstrual flow is very small, keep changing. In addition, menstrual bathing is mainly based on showers, and tub baths should be avoided, and the number of baths in public places should also be reduced.
