How keep yourself feeling fresh on your period

Ladies, it’s time to get real about something almost all of us experience – our periods.

It's a natural part of our lives, and while it may bring cramps, bloating, and mood swings along for the ride, there are plenty of ways to keep yourself feeling fresh and confident. 

Let's dive right in to some self-care tips for when Mother Nature comes calling.

9 ways to stay feeling fresh on your period

1. Embrace comfortable period products

Choosing the right period products can make a world of difference in how you feel during your period. Here are a few options to consider:

Menstrual cups

These eco-friendly wonders are all the rage for a reason. They're reusable, comfortable, and can be worn for up to 12 hours – perfect for a good night's sleep.

Period pants

Say goodbye to the discomfort of bulky pads. Period pants are designed to absorb menstrual flow, keeping you feeling dry and confident. They’re a great alternative to cups.

For those who prefer tampons, opt for the right absorbency level for your flow to prevent leaks and stay comfortable.

2. Stay hydrated

Water is your bestie during your period. It helps flush out excess fluids, reduce bloating, and keep your skin looking radiant. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day, and don't forget herbal teas and hydrating fruits like watermelon.

3. Nourish your body

Cravings during your period are totally normal. Indulge them, but opt for healthier choices when possible. Dark chocolate, fruits, and nuts can satisfy your sweet tooth without making you feel sluggish.

4. Gentle exercise

While the thought of hitting the gym might not be appealing, light exercise like yoga or walking can help ease cramps and improve your mood. Plus, it releases those feel-good endorphins!

5. Prioritise self-care

Your body is working hard during your period, so give it some extra TLC. Take warm baths, practise deep breathing, and pamper yourself with your favourite skincare routine.

6. Freshen up

Feeling fresh starts with good hygiene. Regularly change your period products to prevent odours and discomfort. You can check out our other blog on how to keep on top of your feminine hygiene here.

7. Banish stress

Stress can exacerbate period symptoms, so make time for relaxation. Whether it's meditation, journaling, or curling up with a good book, find what helps you unwind.

8. Get enough sleep

Sleep is a magical remedy for many period woes. Aim for at least 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to keep your energy levels up and your mood stable.

9. Be kind to yourself

Last but certainly not least, be gentle with yourself. Periods are a natural part of life, and it's okay to take it easy when needed. Give yourself permission to rest and recharge.


Remember, your period doesn't define you, and it certainly doesn't diminish your fabulousness. With a little self-care and these tips, you can conquer your period with confidence. Embrace your inner goddess, because you've got this!
