Skin issues are common for Asians due to the warm weather climate. However, that should not be a reason to affect your sex life. If you have sensitive skin, you will want to take a closer look at your lube's ingredients than some people may have to. For some people, this means avoiding specific ingredients such as glycerin, which can be found in some water-based lubes and can cause a reaction and even contribute to yeast infections by giving the yeast something to feed on. Parabens are another ingredient to be wary of. A paraben can mimic estrogen and disrupt the body's normal hormonal functions.
Some people simply prefer to look for lube with a shorter ingredient list. These lubricants may be less likely to contain harmful products, and the ingredients that are included may be more thoughtfully included and natural.
Many lubricants that are labeled natural, which typically indicates a purposeful ingredient list. Organic personal lubricants include organic ingredients, which may have beneficial ingredients. These can include soothing aloe, skin conditioning green tea, and other ingredients. However, just because a lube is natural or organic does not mean you will not have a reaction, especially if your skin is particularly sensitive. When using lube for sex, you should also take your partner's skin into consideration.
