Since my husband had time off this summer, we decided to take advantage of the sabbatical and travel. We took trips for business and pleasure, as well as a family vacation with our three adult kids and four grandkids. It felt like a bit of a whirlwind, but we had a wonderful time making memories. The highlight of our summer, other than the 10 days with our kids and grandkids at our home in Oregon, was a 12 day “Cities of Light” trip with Viking River Cruises.

It was a trip of a lifetime. We traveled from Paris-to-Prague. We started in Paris, which required us to fly from Los Angeles to Charles de Gaulle airport – a non-stop 10+ hour flight, with two legs on the return flight, we spent our share of time sitting on planes.

With all the flying, as well as two long road trips that we took, I found myself becoming very uncomfortable in my “feminine region,” which I have never experienced as I did during the long intercontinental flights. I got up numerous times to go to the ladies room to freshen up. I wish I had brought something to help – honestly, I never even thought about it but I sure will be more prepared the next time.

I’ve always been reluctant to use any products with chemicals and perfumes, which just seem to exacerbate the problem but I decided I was not going to let this happen again. Upon my return, I learned about a wonderful new product by Lubrigyn that is made with botanical ingredients and is free of harmful additives. I tried it and loved how fresh it made me feel without stripping me of my natural oils – it’s gentle enough that I can use it every day. It also includes sodium hyaluronate, which helps to also retain moisture; the same ingredient used in many facial skincare products. Lubrigyn is the only company that uses it in feminine care products. Finally, a product that soothes, protects, and lubricates. Trust me, I will not leave home again without it, especially on trips that I will be sitting for long periods of time. Even better, you can use the lotion with or without water– so it doesn’t matter where you are!

Lubrigyn offers a complete line of products for feminine hygiene. As women over 50, and really at any age, we can experience vaginal dryness due to medications and the use of pools or hot tubs (I take a hot tub regularly and was relieved from the common dryness I often experience by using the Lubrigyn Moisturizing products). Most menopausal and post-menopausal women will experience vaginal dryness at some point that can diminish their sex drive. As many women know, there’s nothing worse than the irritation and even pain related to vaginal dryness during sex, which affects as many as 75 percent of postmenopausal women but only 25% of these women seek treatment.

I have to admit, I was one of those women in the 25% group who would not bother to purchase feminine hygiene products. It seems silly now, having experienced the effectiveness and relief by using Lubrigyn products that are affordable and easily available online at CVS Pharmacy

There is no need to let yourself go or suffer when you can find wonderful products like Lubrigyn that can help you feel clean, confident and comfortable every day while supporting your overall health, sexual enjoyment and wellbeing!
