If you’re not drinking enough water, it may cause dryness down there — especially since the vagina has super sensitive skin. If your vagina is regularly dehydrated, you can get itchiness, burning & pain which can lead to or exacerbate an infection.
Stay hydrated throughout the day to help keep it moisturized & well-lubricated.
Apart from hydration, there are other factors, like your eating patterns, sexual health practices & hygiene, that make an impact too—but staying hydrated is super important, too sis.
If you’re not a “water person,” get creative like adding fresh fruit or herbs to your water for some added flavor!
