Hot Summer Essential Tips from Kotex
Are you missing out on enjoying summer time on the beach or at the pool because you aren’t sure about how to handle having your period at the same time? Some of your friends might believe that it’s “dangerous” or “unhealthy” to swim when they’re menstruating, or are too embarrassed to wear a bikini or go out in shorts or a mini skirt. But with a little preparation, there is no reason for you not to continue being your fabulous self during summer!
In your beach or handbag, have an “emergency period pack” or “EPP” so you’re constantly prepared (or can help a friend in need). It should contain:
- Pack of Kotex® tampons: Your period is no excuse not to go out and enjoy the beach or to skip a pool or house party! Kotex’s® revamped tampons have a unique blue ultra-absorbent “zone” for extra leakage protection so you never have to worry about mishaps (and they are smooth for easier insertion). Look out for Kotex’s® funky new black boxes and colourful, hygienic wrappers – there’s a bright colour for every day of the week to complement your trendy colour-blocked outfit!
- 1 x spare pair of panties: For when you change out of your wet costume or if you have a little mishap.
- 1 x pack of tissues or wipes: Public loos often have no paper!
- 1 x no-water handwash: Wash your hands before and after changing your pads or tampons. A small tube of antibacterial wash that doesn’t need water will do the trick.
- 1 x cute purse or bag: To keep your EPP supplies in!
Remember to replace whatever you use of out of your EPP. If possible, change your tampon when your get out of the water to prevent leaking. Check that the string is tucked inside your cozzie bottom (or cut it a little shorter if you’re very worried about it showing). And don’t worry – unless you tell them, no-one will know you’re having your period! Most likely some of the swimmers and divers at the Olympics were having their periods and still performed like champs. Don’t let your period hold you back from achieving fabulosity!
