Menopausal products

Cooling products for menopause
Hot flushes and night sweats are generally the most common symptoms for women during perimenopause and menopause. Some women only experience occasional hot flushes or night sweats, while, for others, the symptoms can get in the way of daily life affecting their sleep and daily routine.

Both are perfectly normal, but we're here to help alleviate your symptoms.

What are hot flushes?
Hot flushes occur before and during the menopause due to changes in hormone levels, including oestrogen and progesterone, which affect your body's temperature control. During a hot flush, a sudden feeling of heat will overtake the body, sometimes causing a red, flushed face and excessive sweating. Some women experience a rapid heart rate or cold chills. Some hot flushes are mild and tolerable, while others can be debilitating and last much longer.

What are night sweats?
Night sweats are hot flushes at night, which occur more suddenly and awaken the body. Because they come on unexpectedly and do not give the body a chance to prepare, night sweats can be more intense than hot flushes. Night sweats make it difficult to get enough rest, which disrupts your sleep schedule and negatively affects daily life.

How to relieve the symptoms of hot flushes and night sweats?
There are many lifestyle changes that can help alleviate symptoms:

Avoid alcohol, smoking, spicy foods and caffeine.
Exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
Dress in layers that are easy to remove at the onset of a hot spell.
Sleep in lighter sheets and clothing.
Practice mindfulness.
Carry a portable fan or keep a fan by your bed.
However, there are many skin care and body care products available to cool and moisturise your body before, during or after a hot flush, relieving mild to extreme symptoms.
