Hello Summer! ☀️ Tips to Beat the Period Blahs and Embrace the Fun

Welcome to Summer! ☀️

Summertime is my favorite time of the year! With longer days, later sunsets, and endless outdoor adventure....  What's not to love?

As beautiful as it is, summer's rising temps can sometimes bring on the period 'blah'. Don't worry, though! Here are three fun and easy tips to dodge the 'blah' and embrace the 'ahh' of summer (credit @Intimina):

1. Sip, Sip, Hooray! Stay Hydrated 💦

Summer heat plus your body's hormones can equal dehydration. And dehydration? It brings bloating, lightheadedness, and even headaches. If you're sunbathing, exercising, or sipping your favorite afternoon latte or cocktail, dehydration sneaks up on you even faster. So, keep a water bottle handy and hydrate like the summer babe you are!

2. Sleep Like a Sunflower 🌻

Ever noticed how it’s still light out when it feels like bedtime? (Yeah, it’s not just you.) Long summer days can mess with our sleep routines, and the more tired you are, the more those period 'blahs' creep in. Stick to a sleep schedule, even when the sun is tempting you to stay up late, and you'll feel bright and sunny in no time!

3. Glow On! Keep It Clean 🧼

Got period acne? You’re not alone. Summer sweat, combined with dirt and dead skin, can lead to breakouts. Adopt a skincare routine that keeps your skin clean, removing excess oil, dirt, and sweat. Your skin will thank you, and you’ll be glowing all summer long!

Here's to a fantastic summer filled with fun, laughter, and unforgettable memories!
