As we head into the hectic holiday season, I’m reminding moms to make themselves a priority. Between the end of the year deadlines, holiday parties, and holiday shopping you can feel overwhelmed. On top of that, I’m coping with perimenopause symptoms as an over 40 Mom. In the last year, my perimenopause symptoms have become undeniable so I’ve taken the approach to be ready for any physical changes it brings. By using Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Wash & Individually-Wrapped Cloths I was able to stay fresh and confident whether I’m on-the-go or at home.
Be prepared for longer and shorter periods
Thanks to a period tracker app I have a better idea of when my period will arrive. But period tracker apps aren’t 100% perfect. I keep sanitary napkins and tampons handy all the time. They’re in my work bag, every bathroom in our home and even my makeup bag. You just never know.
My gynecologist reminded me that my body’s hormone levels are changing as I approach menopause. I’m also on a birth control pill that’s known to cause spotting between periods. Nothing ruins your day like an unexpected period, so I was delighted to see how using Summer’s Eve during this phase of life would help.
Stay fresh on the go
On a recent press trip to Los Angeles, I anxiously awaited the arrival of my period. I would have preferred to be home during that time so I can relax and take a nap if needed, but I had events to attend and deadlines to meet.
The individually-wrapped Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths were easy to pack in my luggage and keep with me on the go. The Island Splash scent was light and refreshing. All I had to do was unfold them, wipe and toss them in the trash. I was ready on-the-go any time when I felt like freshening.
If you’ll have visitors or overnight guests this holiday season, leave Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths in your bathroom for them to use too.
Be open with your partner
Keep the lines of communication open with your partner about how your body is changing and how it will affect your sex life. Feeling fresh and relaxed are necessary to make a real connection with your partner. I keep Summer’s Eve® Cleaning Wash, also in the Island Splash scent, in my shower. It’s free from dyes and parabens so I don’t have to worry about irritation when washing intimate areas.
