Chill out: tips to treat your hot flashes

by Margery Gass | Sep 13, 2012
Keeping your body cool can help keep hot flashes at bay. Here are just some of the cool tricks:
  • Keep ice water handy to sip.
  • Turn down the thermostat.
  • Use a ceiling fan or air conditioning.
  • Dress cool—wear cotton, linen, or rayon, and avoid wool, other synthetic fabrics, and silk.
  • Stick to open-necked shirts.
  • Dress in layers so you can take something off if you’re feeling warm.
  • At night, take a cool shower before bed, wear cotton nightclothes or loose fitness clothing designed to wick away moisture, and keep an ice pack under your pillow.
  • Get a bigger bed if you and your partner are on different “heat planets.”
