Are Vaginal Tightening Creams Safe and Do They Actually Work?
BY KELLY STILES
The topic of vaginal tightening creams is often a controversial one. After all, who really even wants to broach the subject of a loose vajayjay, let alone which creams you should apply to get a better grip? It’s a simple fact though, that with so many women experiencing the issue, vaginal tightening creams are in the spotlight.
If your sex life is floundering or you’re scared a little bit a wee is going to come out when you laugh, perhaps you’ve been looking into your options. Good on you! Though your vagina is made to return to its natural state after childbirth, for example, fatigue, age or damage to the pelvic floor are common reasons for feeling a little loose, 'down there'.
The question is though, are vaginal tightening creams the best option? Are they safe to use? And right you are to ask. As with anything that comes in a tube, it pays to find out exactly what’s in it and how it works – especially when it presents a potential risk to your most pleasurable body part.
Our tried and tested cream that comes our top time and time again is V-Tight Gel, which has all natural and effective ingredients and is the most popular solution for those looking to tighten up.
What does vaginal tightening cream actually do to your body?
Vaginal tightening creams work to renew the elasticity of the vaginal canal, with ingredients known to tighten the skin by restoring tissue growth.
The aim is to restore fullness to the vaginal walls while reshaping, lubricate the area to eliminate dryness, enhance blood flow and sensitivity, help keep bacteria at bay and significantly increase your libido.
What are safe ingredients for vaginal tightening creams?
It’s pretty safe to say, that the ‘safest’ products are those that come direct from nature. We’re given everything we need from Mother Earth and this includes medicinal plants that have been used since ancient times, to heal everything from the tiniest scratch to life-threatening illnesses.
Whether you’re looking for vaginal tightening creams, moisturisers or anything that goes on your body, all-natural ingredients are the way to go.
This is because your skin absorbs topical ointments, which go into your bloodstream – a place where harsh chemicals definitely don’t belong.
Many ingredients have been scientifically proven to help with the specific problem of vaginal looseness, recognised after being used over the years to help women recover from childbirth.
1. Manjakani Extract
Manjakani extract has long been used in Eastern Europe and throughout Asia, due to its medicinal, astringent and antioxidant properties. An astringent compound works to shrink or constrict body tissues.
The extract contains tannins, which are largely responsible for its use in traditional medicine, to restore vaginal tissue growth and strengthen elasticity, after childbirth.
The antioxidants in manjakani can also help to reduce the aging process, prevent bacterial and yeast infections and limit excessive vaginal discharge.
With vitamins A and C, protein and gallic acid too, manjakani offers a literal powerhouse of nutrients to return tone, and with it tightness, to your vagina.
2. Witch Hazel Extract
Witch hazel extract is another astringent herb used throughout the world in beauty and medicinal products, in order to firm the skin, soothe inflammation and aid in the recovery of cuts and skin disorders. It contains phytoestrogen, which rejuvenates the vaginal walls by constricting the skin and tissue.
Another benefit of witch hazel extract, for your lady bits, are anti-inflammatory properties that help eliminate odors and reduce the risk of infections.
3. Aloe Vera
You’ve probably used the Aloe Vera plant to help with sunburn, heal a cut or simply moisturise your skin. It’s a proven natural remedy, due to a wealth of vitamins, including A, C and folic acid, not to mention minerals like zinc, magnesium and calcium.
These nutrients are crucial in promoting vaginal tightness and they also go a long way towards eliminating dryness, itchiness and irritation.
How do you know which creams to avoid?
It’s fairly easy to spot a vaginal tightening cream you should run a mile from. Luckily, many do contain all-natural ingredients, however all products are not made the same. It’s very important to read the ingredients list to identify harsh chemicals, even if a product states it contains natural ones as well.
Chemicals could potentially cause issues from mild irritations to extreme itchiness and allergic reactions. Your vagina doesn’t welcome them and neither will you, if you experience the uncomfortable symptoms.
Also, it pays to remember that a gel alone isn’t enough to tighten your vagina in the long-run, though some produce better results with time. Any product stating it has the power to magically fix the problem completely (and overnight at that) is too good to be true.
A vaginal tightening gel won’t strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, so you’ll have to put in some work too, preferably with Kegel exercises. Reputable products won’t deny that the combination of both exercise and tightening cream is the best way to restore your tightness and your sex life.
The answer? Yes, vaginal tightening creams, with all-natural ingredients, are generally safe and effective. Be sure to follow the instructions and look out for signs of reactions, which can occur in some people, even with natural ingredients.
And get on to those Kegel exercises, right now! Your vagina will certainly thank you for it.
