PERIOD HACKS FROM YOUR ULTIMATE WINGWOMAN.

January 02, 2017

These are just a few of our fave tips and tricks to help you curb period drama like a BAWSS! (and a li'l taste of what's to come in The Powder Room...).

 

Pesky period stains on your fave knickers?

Mix half a teaspoon of salt with some cold water and scrub onto the stain in question with an old toothbrush. The salt helps loosen the stain and lift it out of the fibres. Follow by putting them through their regular wash cycle and BAM! Your knickers are (like) new!

 

Say sayonara to the salt.

Salt can often make you retain water, which can lead to uncomfortable bloating.

 

Reach for the nuts.

The edible kind...! Almonds, cashews, and brazil nuts are high in magnesium, which helps replenish that which you lose whilst menstruating.

 

Get your brew on.

Peppermint tea in particular is known to have anti-smasmodic properties, so it can be a great (and natural) cramp soother for those who experience period pain or symptoms associated with endometriosis.

 

Sleep tight throughout the night.

It's a no-no to use tampons whilst you're sleeping, so we recommend wearing an extra-long overnight pad (like Moxie Overnight pads) during the night, with a double set of wings for extra protection.

 

Get busy to curb menstrual cramps.

YES this is actually a thing! Science says! During orgasm, your uterus contracts and releases a heap of brain chemicals, including oxytocin, which is the body's natural pain reliever.
