Cramps, headaches, bloating, mood swings, fatigue, breast soreness–these PMS symptoms hit us like a hurricane every month. But have you ever noticed a difference in their intensity during the scorching summer months? Well, the temperature rise definitely has an impact on your periods. And nope, we’re not just talking about the sweat causing dampness, irritation, and rashes in your intimate area.
According to a study published in the journal Gynecological Endocrinology, hot weather=more ovarian activity and a shorter menstrual cycle. The vitamin D from the sun’s rays promotes the secretion of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This chemical is responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle and stimulating the growth of eggs in the ovaries. But that’s not all. The soaring mercury can aggravate fatigue and acne by causing stress. It can also make you feel more bloated by triggering water retention.
All in all, summer’s a real period enemy. However, here are six life-saving products to keep it from worsening your already-irksome shark week:
Most sanitary napkins available in the market are made of synthetic material that traps moisture. They’re also loaded with chemicals to conceal period odour and can cause rashes and irritation in the nether regions. However, Sirona’s Rash-Free Pads are a breath of fresh air–quite literally so. Made with biodegradable, breathable material, they’re ultra-thin and super-comfy. The best part? They don’t contain toxins like parabens, chlorine, and artificial colours and are extremely gentle on the genital skin.
Excessive sweat, dampness, and friction can cause irritation, redness, and rashes in your intimate area. Enter Sirona’s Anti-Chafing Rash Cream to the rescue. Applying a thin layer of it to your intimate area can help you prevent rashes. In case your skin’s already irritated, you can count on the healing properties of this cream to calm it down and provide quick relief.
Sirona’s menstrual cup can solve all your period woes. Firstly, it doesn’t make direct contact with the genital skin, so it doesn’t cause friction or rashes. Secondly, it has an ergonomic rim design for a strong suction grip and a whopping capacity of 28 ml. So, it provides leakproof protection for 8 hours straight even if your period is heavy. And thirdly, keeps you way comfier on your period by creating a firm grip with your pelvic floor muscles.
You absolutely cannot do without this product–especially in the scorching heat. It’s a mild, soap-free cleanser that can help you get rid of sweat, blood, and germ build-up in your intimate area. Made with natural ingredients like Tasmanian pepper fruit, it’s super-gentle on your genital skin and leaves it squeaky clean and fresh.
Sirona’s Intimate Wipes can help you cleanse your intimate area of sweat and dirt even while you’re on the go. All you gotta do is to pull one from the easy-to-carry pack and wipe your nether region from front to back. Tada! You’re good to go.
Sirona’s PMS Gummies are rich in vitamin B6 and chasteberry. These ingredients are proven to alleviate PMS symptoms like cramps and mood swings. The Dong Quai (female ginseng) in this health supplement can help you feel more energetic and the lemon balm can soothe irritation. Regular daily consumption of these chewable gummies can transform your period experience and you can thank us later for it.
