Ways to Boost Your Libido and Feel Sexier - Part 2

Last week we started a conversation about libido boosters, offering you five food-related tricks to get you in the mood. This week we're bringing you part 2; a new list of libido boosters with additional tips and tricks. As you'll recall, your lack of desire can be more than just the result of a long, stressful day. Some women struggle to ever get "in the mood"! This is nothing to be ashamed of. We're here with the RepHreshing truth to tell you that something may actually be off balance. Many factors can negatively affect your libido. RepHresh wants to empower you to feel sexier and enhance your sex drive with these 5 BONUS libido boosters.

  1. Try different pills or ditch the pills altogether
    Have you noticed a decline in your libido ever since you began taking birth control pills? It's not just you. According to Women's Health Mag, 36% of women firmly believe the pill decreases their sex drive. One clinical study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women on birth control pills were more likely to experience reduced desire and arousal than those who used non-hormonal forms of birth control. Some women have found success by switching their prescription, so consider asking your doc for a change. Another option would be to ditch the pills altogether and see how that affects your libido. If you do, make sure you discuss it with your doctor first and replace the birth control pill with a different form of contraceptive.

  2. Stay Fit
    This one may be obvious, but your overall health plays a big role in your libido. We are not talking about the way you look, although feeling confident certainly helps, we are talking about actual physical benefits of exercise and fitness that can help boost the libido. Aerobic workouts increase blood flow to the sex organs, which we all know is a good thing. One study done at the University of Texas found that, even after only one workout session, your body gets aroused faster and more intensely. Staying fit is also great for your man because body fat inhibits testosterone production. So, hit the gym together! If you're not much of a gym rat, there are other fun ways you can stay fit. Try taking a Pilates class together, going for a swim at the local public pool or hitting a tennis or basketball court.

  3. Get an adrenaline rush
    According to Huffington Post, "studies show that people feel more amorous after enduring an adrenaline-pumping experience such as watching a scary movie or jumping out of an airplane." Bond with your other half over an activity that gets you out of your comfort zone and you're sure to experience a boost in libido. Check out this list of super scary movies coming to theaters this year. Or look into other fun activities to get your adrenaline pumping, like roller coasters, white-water rafting or rock climbing.

  4. Look at a photo of your significant other
    A Rutgers University Study revealed through MRI scans that "when people looked at a photo of their significant other for 30 seconds, it triggered activity in the area of the brain that produces the libido-helper dopamine" (Health.com). Dopamine helps produce feelings of desire. If you're trying to get in the mood for a surprise attack before your hubby gets home, spend a minute with his handsome photo and enjoy the anticipation.

  5. Maintain good vaginal health
    In general, we know when we are healthy - no coughing, sneezing, aches or pains. But, vaginal health is different - it is not always easy to know when things are going south down south. For example, clinical studies have shown that the vaginal yeast counts of healthy women fluctuate significantly within a given month, and, in most cases, women were unaware of these fluctuations. Also, vaginal pH can be affected by everyday things like hormone fluctuations, intercourse, menstrual fluids and some hygiene products, increasing the risk of vaginal issues like odour and discomfort. NOTHING kills libido faster than not feeling confident about your body. And healthy is sexy! Luckily, there are easy steps you can take to maintain good vaginal health:

    1. Balance yeast and bacteria with RepHresh Pro-B Probiotic Feminine Supplement: Yeast and bacteria are naturally present in your body, and optimum vaginal health occurs when there is a healthy balance of these elements. With just 1 capsule of RepHresh Pro-B per day, you can balance yeast and bacteria to maintain vaginal health and your confidence EVERY day.

    2. Maintain healthy vaginal pH with RepHresh Vaginal Gel: When vaginal pH is unbalanced, odour-causing microorganisms can flourish, and studies show that vaginal issues often occur when vaginal pH is unbalanced. RepHresh Vaginal Gel is clinically shown to maintain healthy vaginal pH and one application lasts 3 full days. So, you can be confident that you are odour-free whenever your libido kicks into high gear!
