Many women experience the occasional bout of vaginal thrush, a common yeast infection that may be triggered by dryness of the intimate area, wearing tight clothing and using harsh soaps. Thankfully, there’s Canesten Sensicare Calm ($12.30), a gynaecologist- and dermatologist-tested intimate wash formulated with glycine to soothe irritation for up to 12 hours, as well as soften and protect skin. Free from soap, preservatives and colourants, it also has an alkaline pH of 8.5 that ensures a healthy balance in the vagina’s natural flora. Apply on wet skin and rinse off with water. Use twice a day for best results. Visit www.canesten.com.sg for more information. Available at Guardian, Watsons and Unity.
