In a world full of “extra,” sometimes all we need is a little simplification in our lives, especially when it comes to that “time of the month.” It’s already an uncomfortable time so there is no need to make it even more complicated with unnecessary things, which is why I’ve created a list of essentials to simplify that time of the month and make it little more comfortable. Read on to see my simple routine for that time of the month!
Invest in Dependable Feminine Products
When it’s that time of the month, it’s important to invest in a feminine product that is not only dependable and comfortable but that also makes your life a lot simpler. Choosing the right product can be overwhelming, which is why I look for something that works with the things I need – comfort, protection and none of the “extra” bells and whistles I don’t. I want to feel good about the products I choose, which is why Playtex® Simply Gentle Glide™ Tampons are perfect for me. Here are a few reasons why I love them:
- 360 Protection™ shapes to your body for a protective barrier against leaks
- Purified Fibers are washed up to five times and weaved together to form an absorbent core
- The comfort shape applicator is free from colors, dyes and BPA
- When used as instructed, every ingredient used is rigorously evaluated to provide reliable protection that you can trust to be gentle and safe for your body
With Playtex® Simply Gentle Glide™, you can have the best of both worlds – simplicity and a great value! For me, it’s a no-brainer 😉 You can save $1 on Playtex ® Simply Gentle Glide™ Tampons with Cartwheel in the Target app now through 10/9/18!
Wear Comfy (and Cute) Clothing
When it’s that time of the month, the last thing on my mind is wearing a skin tight dress. I like my clothing like I like my feminine products – simple and comfortable. I reserve my comfiest clothing for this time but instead of the typical leggings and tee uniform, I usually go for a light, flowy dress in a soft fabric. Around this time, most women usually feel pretty yucky so I think it’s super important to still dress your best so you feel good about yourself.
Put on Some Makeup
Speaking of feeling good about yourself, nothing makes me feel more confident than wearing makeup. I’m a true believer than when you look amazing, you feel amazing! And I know that a lot of us don’t want to be bothered to put on a full face of makeup so I usually simplify my routine around this time by using a light foundation or BB cream, a few swipes of mascara, a creamy blush and a tinted lip balm for a clean, effortless look that still makes me look put-together and feel beautiful. As far as hair is concerned, I usually opt for a simple braid instead of my usual curls.
When I’m feeling slightly uncomfortable, nothing makes me feel better than a warm bubble bath and an at home spa day (and it doesn’t have to be complicated). I love to light sweet-smelling candles, listen to soft music and immerse myself in a tub full of bubbles and lavender bath salts. I also use this time to give myself a simple DIY facial by layering gel eye masks, a facial sheet mask and a fruity lip scrub. Taking this time for myself not only gives me a super glowy complexion, but also allows me time to truly relax and take a moment for myself, which I feel is so important.
Unwind at Home
I feel like I’m constantly going, going, going all the time, but that time of the month gives me a reason to just relax and unwind (and if I’m being honest, it gives me an excuse to look forward to it haha!). Watching a girly movie like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, catching up on Gossip Girl reruns or finding a new Netflix show are some of my favorite ways to take time for myself. I also love immersing myself in a good book and mindlessly flipping through fashion magazines while sipping one of my favorite beverages such as a fruit juice, lemonade or green tea.
Living in a world full of “extra” can make things feel complicated (watch this this video to see what I mean – I almost died laughing lol!), but that time of the month doesn’t have to be. Simplify your monthly routine with Playtex® Simply Gentle Glide™ so you can live your best (uncomplicated) life!
