Riding the Waves: Managing Menstrual Symptoms with Simple Tips and Self-Care

Embracing the Monthly Journey: A Guide to Easing Menstrual Challenges and Prioritising Self-Love



Periods.


There are probably a plethora of thoughts running through your head when you read this

word. The menstrual cycle can be excruciatingly painful at times, but there are a few ways to

help deal with some of the problems we face. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution,

there are a few things that can help alleviate these symptoms.


Before a period, most women experience breakouts and a ton of mood swings. I know it’s

extremely annoying, but there are a few things you can do to help. Now, I’m no dermatologist, so if these don’t work, do not come to me. But they can give you some relief,

so it is never a bad idea to listen to some friendly advice.


Before your period, pimples are usually the most common, and I would advise you to

NEVER pop them. However eager you are, you have to stop because those marks will not

leave. I find pimple patches pretty helpful, but also water, because that’s the most important

factor if you want to decrease the number of pimples that surprise you monthly. Colgate also

works, but avoid it if you have really sensitive skin. Invest in good skincare because it is not

only helpful but also very therapeutic.


Premenstrual Syndrome is also something every lady goes through, and at times it's hard to notice when we are being rude to the ones we love without realising it. The only solution here is to either let them know and excuse you for your behaviour, or chocolate (yes, chocolate) is also a great alternative for those cranky days.


The menstrual cycle can be a challenging time for many women. However, there are a few

things that can be done to help manage the symptoms. By being patient with yourself, talking to your doctor, and taking care of yourself, you can get through this time period.


Believe that.
