Your nether region is amazing. It is designed to be self-cleaning and naturally expand to accommodate everything from a well-endowed lover to a little human being. While you may be on top of your game in taking care of yourself; frequent visits to the gynae, Kegel exercises, avoiding douching and tight underwear – I bet you have never blinged out your bits or had a facial down there! Or have you?


Would you ever try any of these?
Believe it or not I have been asked whether the colour of my hair matches that of my nether region. Smh. Luckily for those with those kind of aspirations, there’s pube-specific hair dye. Depending on your preference, you can opt for more traditional colours – black, blonde or brown — or the unexpected pop of pink, blue or other primary shade. How do I know this? Because I watch Sex and the City and vividly remember the episode where Samantha had an unfortunate red dye job. Lol!

Vaginal steaming is a cleanse that consists of sitting naked on an open-seated chair, under which a humidifier emits herb-infused steam for 30 to 45 minutes. V-steaming is known for its health benefits including boosting fertility, easing menstrual cramps, balancing hormones and fighting infection and an improved sex life. Unfortunately, there aren’t many (if any at all) beauty spas in this part of the world that offer this treatment but you can always search for DIY information online – remember to take caution

Vajaycials (Vagina facials)
Using a gentle exfoliation technique called gommage, which means “to erase” in French, a cream or paste is applied to the area and then massaged away, a good solution for ingrown hairs. A Peach Smoothie” (sounds delicious!) is also used during which they use an exfoliating scrub and acid peel to open blocked pores and remove ingrown hairs from around the vagina. Ouch!

Va j-j Visor
The Va j-j Visor is a cute little shield or ‘hat’ you use to cover up your labia and inner vulva when you wax, dye, tan, vajaycial, etc. It slips over your vulva to protect any delicate parts during waxing, spray tanning or other spa treatments without risking getting product where it shouldn’t be. Because that would hurt a lot—been there, done that, woke up the neighbours with my screams.


The visor

Think bedazzling for the vajayjay. It literally involves decorating your pubic area with little crystals. It’s anything but practical. But oh so sparkly.

Waxing shapes
Some women prefer to be bare like a baby, while some would rather trim like a lady. If you’re not a bare beauty, get your pubic hair groomed into any shape by the pros.
