You can be all dressed up and a hot flash happens and there you are all dressed up looking like you just ran a marathon.
Hot Flashes are very common side effects of menopause.
Clothes become an issue. You ask yourself, how many layers can I safely take off before I am inappropriate in public?
Make-up has to be the long lasting variety and even then a good hot flash and eyebrows can start weeping!
Underwear and socks, tights or God for bid Spanx, forgetaboutit!! If you weren’t already having a hot flash, trying to pull on or up my Spanx and you will!
A couple of years ago I had to leave a wedding because I was wearing a beautiful vintage silk dress and I had sweated through it.
I found solace in pretty nail polish and beautiful earrings. My fingers and ear lobes don’t sweat.
I have never found my nails or ear lobes dripping! I am lucky. This isn’t the case for all women!
I usually do my own nails because I like to change up the colors and I always forget to wear gloves so I chip them often. I love a little sparkle and there are plenty of polishes to please my every whim.
I inherited from my Mother all her earrings. She had some beautiful pieces. It just makes me feel good when I can put on a pair of jade and onyx studs or a gold and tortoise shell hoops.
Nail polish and earring are not what anybody would normally consider a remedy for hot flashes. They just make me feel good. They are pretty and they stay looking the same through the very moistest of hot flashes.
