But summer doesn’t just mean fun times, it can also be a difficult time to deal with menopause since it brings in heat, sweat, and many other things.

Several menopausal symptoms can be triggered by the summer heat, including hot flashes, insomnia, skin changes, and hair loss. Ensure that the problem is dealt with properly as soon as possible as this can cause serious discomfort. Here are some tips and tricks for your convenience. 

Dress in layers

Wearing layers can keep you prepared for a sudden temperature change. Putting it on as required and removing it as required, it gives you an extra bit of freedom during a hot flash.

Keep an eye on spice consumption

Heat flashes can be triggered by the summer heat, and these can be amplified by spicy foods. Hot flashes are known to increase with certain spices, so keep them to a minimum.

Try avoiding the sun

Long-term exposure to the summer sun can prove harmful. Minimize the amount of time you spend in the sun. Protect yourself with sunscreen with minimum of SPF-30 as exposure to heat can also cause hot flashes, in addition to the skin.

Exercise smart

Exercise indoors. Work out in a room with plenty of ventilation and cool air. If you prefer to exercise outdoors, do it in the morning when the temperature is coolest. After your workout, take a shower to cool off. Don’t exert yourself late in the day if it causes you to sweat during the night. Exercise in the morning will reduce nighttime hot flashes.

Food check

Eating foods that cool you down such as cucumber, watermelon, etc is a healthy way to eat healthily and lite. They are easy to digest, help you cool down, and provide proper nutrients.

Temperature control

If you are experiencing hot flashes, you may benefit from staying in a cool area that can be regulated according to your preferences. 

All in all, you should be cautious about what you eat and drink, particularly alcohol, high-sodium, and high-sugar foods. Also, be cautious when you’re out in the sun or doing a lot of sunbathing. Make sure your skin is well-protected. Maintain good sleeping habits. Be sure to drink plenty of water and stay cool before going to bed. Whether you’re travelling or simply extra busy this summer, keep an eye on your anxiety levels.
