Let’s get down to the facts:
Fact #1 – The Size: Every woman has them, but that doesn’t mean all lips look and feel the same. Yes, your labia can be different sizes. The majora or the minora can be larger than the other. It’s totally normal! How fun?!
Fact #2 – The Color: Can also vary. Your vagina lips are usually skin color but they can be a shade lighter or darker than your normal skin tone. However, if they are too dark or too light, see your doctor. Go ahead ladies, take a look.
Fact #3 – The Appearance: As you age, your vagina and vulva can lose moisture which can leave your lips looking less plump than in your younger years. Have no fear, your vagina is still looking good.
Fact #4 – Childbirth: Having kids can also cause changes to your lips. During vaginal childbirth, your labia can tear from here to there. Say it taint so!
Fact #5 – Acne: Your vulva and labia have glands and they can get covered with sweat and what does that mean? Acne. Sorry to say but you can get a pimple on your puss.
