Looking cool and feeling comfortable during a hot summer holiday can be quite a challenge when you are going through the menopause or peri-menopause. Hot flushes are a common symptom of these menopausal phases with approximately 75% of women suffering from either night sweats or hot flushes. This can make navigating the extreme temperatures of sunny climes whilst on holiday a bit of a challenge.
Dr Louise Newson, Regelle menopause advisor and renowned menopause doctor explains that “Oestrogen affects the thermo-regulatory receptors in our bodies and this is why so many women report hot flushes during the menopause”.
In addition to feeling hot, many women will also suffer from vaginal dryness during this life-phase and this can make wearing tight, non-cotton swimwear very uncomfortable. Regelle, the long-lasting vaginal moisturiser is the perfect solution to vaginal dryness, delivering up to 3 days of moisturisation after each application. Regelle provides immediate comfort and long-lasting relief from dryness and discomfort. Used regularly, it also improves the elasticity of the vaginal wall, encourages the return of natural secretions and restores the natural pH of the vagina. And it’s easy and hygienic to use with discreet single use, pre-filled disposable applicators to deliver moisture where it’s needed.
Other tips on keeping cool and comfortable whilst on holiday include:
- Take a mini fan with you and give yourself regular cooling bursts with it to your face
- Drink plenty of fluids regularly throughout the day
- Avoid the extreme heat of midday and seek the shade when possible
- Wear a sun cream with SPF 30 and reapply regularly and after swimming
- Avoid swimwear made of nylon or non-natural fibres – and try to wear loose rather than very tight swimming costumes
- And to feel and look cool at the same time – choose a super-chic sun hat and sunglasses!
