THIS Is the Right Way to Clean Your Vagina By Korin Miller

No doubt personal hygiene is important to you, so it makes sense that you’d want to keep your vagina clean too. But experts say you should proceed with caution when it comes to scrubbing up below the belt.
“The vagina is pretty good at cleaning itself,” says Nancy Herta, M.D., an ob-gyn at Michigan State University. Here’s why: Your vagina has a low pH, which prevents the growth of bad bacteria. “It’s a delicate balance that makes the vagina hostile to bacteria,” Herta says. “If you put stuff in there that changes the pH, you can allow bacteria to overgrow.” And that can cause yeast or other vaginal infections to form.Herta points out that it’s completely normal to have a vaginal discharge, sometimes with a slight odor, that gets heavier and lighter throughout your cycle. “A lot of women think they need to do something about it, but it’s part of how your vagina cleans itself,” she says. You might also notice a slight odor after sex which, again, Herta says is normal. “The sperm can change the pH,” she explains. “But the vagina will take care of that.”While you’ve probably seen different products at your local drugstore that swear they’ll help keep you squeaky clean down there, Herta says it’s best to avoid them altogether—especially when it comes to douches. “If you douche, it changes the pH, making it higher and allowing other kinds of bacteria to overgrow” she says. Douching can also dry out your vagina and make sex more painful, she says, making this a hygiene habit you really want to avoid.So, how should you clean your vagina? Herta discourages sticking anything up there, but says you can use a really mild soap for your labia while you’re in the shower. When you’re done, pat the area dry with a towel and make sure it's dry before you put on your underwear since excess moisture in the vaginal area can lead to a yeast infection.But, overall, Herta says it’s best to think of your vagina like a self-cleaning oven and let it do its thing.

RELATIONSHIPS: 13 Little Things That Can Make a Man Fall Hard for You

1. Stocking the fridge with his favorite drinks. Bonus points: Bring him back to his fraternity days by handing him a cold one as he steps out of the shower.
2. Making him a snack after sex. It doesn’t have to be a gourmet meal—a simple grilled cheese or milk and cookies will do.
3. Emailing him the latest online gossip about his favorite TV show. You don’t have to have a BFF at HBO. Just share applicable links from your Twitter feed and pat yourself on the back.
4. Bragging about him to your friends, family, the stranger on the street corner—whomever. Proclamations of pride will make his chest puff out and his heart swell.
5. Answering the door in a negligĂ©e—or, better yet, naked.
6. Being open to what he wants to try in the bedroom and out. An open mind is attractive no matter your playground.
7. Letting him help solve your petty work problem. Many men don’t do gossip, but they do like to fix things.
8. Spitting out sports stats for his favorite team. Showing an interest in his favorite players will earn you points on and off the field.
9. Making a big deal out of his favorite meal. Does he like hot dogs cut up into his boxed mac-and-cheese? Serve it on a fancy tray in bed to really see him smile.
10. Treating his friends as well as you treat your own. If you win their affections, you’ll win his heart.
11. Sitting side-by-side while he watches his favorite TV. It may not feel like quality time to you, but it’s the best time to him.
12. Giving him a massage—happy ending completely optional. In fact, a foot rub works just fine.
13. Taking him back to third grade with a gentle tease over anything from how you’ll dominate him on the basketball court to the weird way he just styled his hair.

NEW GENERATION to OLD GENERATION: Meet the barber who disciplines kids with an 'old man' haircut

Parents of misbehaving children are commonly advised to fit the punishment to the crime. For example, if your child daubs black paint on your white walls, don’t deprive them of cake: appoint them cleaning monitor. According to this logic, I can see where Russell Fredrick, a barber from Snellville, Georgia, is coming from with his “Benjamin Button Specials”. This particular haircut involves shaving the crown of a child who thinks they know it all, and leaving the sides long. It’s a tonsorial representation of precocity. Fredrick is community-minded, so he is offering these cuts to local parents free of charge. He also gives free haircuts – in a different style – to kids who get A grades.
Since Fredrick posted the pictures of a cut in progress on Instagram, along with the text, “So you wana act grown...well now you can look grown too”, the phone in A-1 Kutz, his salon, has barely paused for breath. “I’ve had people calling from Australia, the UK, Canada, all over the US.”
All wanting haircuts?
Ah. And how many haircuts?
“No one has actually come in for one. People are shy about being on camera,” Fredrick says. Though a woman did call last night about her 14-year-old son.
According to the Washington Post, Fredrick applied the Benjamin Button style to his own son, Rushann. Untrue, says Fredrick. “I shaved his head completely bald and said if he didn’t improve the behaviour, he’d get the cut. The fear of getting it was enough for him.” Rushann’s grades “skyrocketed” and his current hairstyle makes him look about 12, which, as a 12-year-old, he must find a relief. Source
