“Be prepared! Have a go-to period purse ready in all your travel totes or bags.” This ensures you are ALWAYS prepared so are never caught short!

“A cup! And your panty liners, just in case.” Lots of people like to use a menstrual cup, as it can make managing your period easier. It’s convenient as you don’t have to carry around lots of period care products and although we always advise sticking to TSS guidelines, a cup can be worn slightly longer than regular products.”
“I always stock up on coconut water as it is full of electrolytes and potassium and keeps me hydrated.” Coconut water is not only a summery drink, but it is also super period-friendly. Lack of hydration can actually worsen period cramps, so it’s important to keep your hydration levels topped up. The electrolytes and potassium in coconut water can help soothe cramps, making it ideal for managing your period on holiday.
“Magnesium spray! It is SO handy and convenient. Magnesium aways helps soothe my cramps!” Magnesium helps relax your uterine muscles which offers relief from cramping pain as cramps are caused by your uterus muscles contracting.
