Tackling PMS with self care

Many women can relate to the feeling of being frustrated with their body when they have symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome). It can lead to cramps, skin flareups and generally feeling bloated and uncomfortable. It can be a good idea to have a few self-care tips up your sleeve to help you naturally tackle these symptoms.

Take a bath with added magnesium

Adding bath salts to a nice warm bath is a good way to relax the body and minimise cramps. Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate, is recommended for a range of muscle cramps and helps the body to relax. It can be even better when combined in bath salts with a calming aromatherapy fragrance such as lavender. Of course, if you are not lucky enough to have a bathtub in your home, you can also use a magnesium-rich shower product.

Exfoliate your skin

Many women feel tired and report that their skin looks duller and/or is prone to breakouts during their PMS days. One of the ways to naturally brighten skin and remove dead skin cells and excess oil is through exfoliating scrubs. This also helps to reduce the frequency of breakouts and clogged pores. As skin is often more sensitive at this time, many women prefer to switch skincare products and opt for a gentler exfoliator.

Natural face masks

Another way to help you feel your best is to use a face mask. Face masks come in a range of formulas to help sooth any type of skin issue as well as giving you a good excuse to sit back and relax for a few minutes while the mask does its work. In fact, the time spent relaxing is a great way to unwind and let you refocus on the most important things you need to get done that day.

Self care - Clean it up!

When I say clean it up, I don’t mean your language, just your surroundings. This might be pretty self explanatory to some of you, but I know there a few people who might need a reminder. As well as cleaning unwanted dust (which is 75% dead skin cells ew), bacteria and germs, and just plain old rubbish. Cleaning your house is proven to lift your mood as well. You don’t have to do it all at once, but here are a few things to tackle when you get some time. Aim for one per day off. I’ve been doing this over the last few weeks and it’s really helping me enjoy my space and my belongings more.
