It seems like once I turned forty, everything changed. I have a few more grey hairs, a few more wrinkles, and my skin is drier. My back aches when I wake up in the morning, and my arthritis bothers me more on cold days. All in all, getting older has certainly taken some getting used to.

Feminine Health After Forty
There are some good things about getting older too. The kids are older and don’t require as much supervision as when they were little. There are no more diapers, no PTO meetings and no more helping with high school math class. Marty and I finally have a bit more time alone together. Without kids. But, that comes with challenges too.
Feminine health after forty isn’t the same as feminine health in your twenties or thirties. Just like every other area of your body, your most intimate area changes with age as well. Your libido decreases due to high-stress levels and hormonal changes. You are more likely to experience feminine dryness as one of the symptoms of menopause.
Because you’re more prone to feminine dryness after 40, avoiding soap when washing can be helpful. Soap tends to dry out your skin and destroy the hydrolipid film that protects the delicate skin around the vagina. Some women suffer from dryness as a result of diabetes, pregnancy, or because they’re very physically active. Lubrigyn Lotion is a creamy, lubricating and moisturizing lotion for everyday intimate care that is highly recommended for dry, sensitive skin.
Lubrigyn Lotion is a gentle cleanser that can be used with or without water and is made of natural botanical ingredients. It contains no sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, or petroleum derivatives and hydrocarbons. It contains sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, chamomile, and aloe vera. It contains sodium hyaluronate which helps to attract and retain water; this ingredient is used in many face creams for the same reason. Lubrigyn cleanses gently by “affinity”, dissolving impurities with natural oils instead of harsh chemicals.
Lubricants and moisturizers aren’t just for dryness. Choosing a lubricant or moisturizer can help relieve discomfort or pain from thinning vaginal walls during sex. Lubrigyn Cream relieves dryness and provides long-lasting lubrication by supplementing your body’s natural moisture. Using a lubricant can also help prevent infections caused by friction. Lubrigyn Cream does not contain lanolin or hormones and it is not made with oily and oil-based hydrocarbons like Mineral Oil.
Lubrigyn Lotion, Cream, and Wipes are available at CVS.
