Hi Endo Girls! Since Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer, I wanted to create a summer-themed post for you this Monday. So, I created a list of 5 things that are sure to enrich a beach experience if you have endometriosis.

Endometriosis can make it hard to go out, especially in the heat of the summer. Between pain and nausea, endo can easily ruin a trip to the beach. But, you may just be able to enjoy a trip to the beach if you are armed with these 5 products!

1. An insulated water bottle

An insulated water bottle is sure to keep a drink cold, which will make staying hydrated a bit more appealing. No one wants to drink warm water when it is hot out! Plus, this water bottle is stainless steel, meaning that you do not have to worry about BPA or any other chemicals that can be in plastic water bottles.

This particular bottle comes in 25 different patterns and 2 different sizes!

2. A portable battery-operated fan 

For me personally, the heat tends to make me feel worse. So, I am careful about being outside for large portions of time and tend to stay inside as much as possible when it gets to be really warm out. However, I may have found a solution for staying outside longer–a portable battery operated fan! This one is easy to transport since it folds up. With only 2 D batteries, you can stay cool with 2 different fan speeds! Plus, you can choose from 7 different colors! You can buy your own here.

3. Crocs Flip Flops

I know, “Crocs makes flip flops??”. Yes, AND they are very comfortable and way more supportive than normal flip flops!! I recently bought a pair and I had to include them here because I love them so much! They provide much more support for your feet and don’t put as much stress on your body while walking than normal flip flops, which could mean less pain for you! Plus, they come in 5 different colors and are really affordable!

4. Refreshing Cucumber Wipes

These facial cleansing wipes are great for staying cooled off and feeling clean and fresh through the heat. They are formulated with cucumber and sage, so they smell great! You can use them to remove makeup or simply to cool off. I love to have some on hand because they are easy to use to clean your face quickly throughout the day and before bed. Plus, the package is small enough to throw into a beach bag or purse when you go out.

5. Thermacare Heat Wraps

And, a beach bag would not be complete without some heat wraps. Even though the heat of the summer can seem overwhelming on its own, the sweating you will experience because of a heat wrap is so worth it!! These allow me to take my heating pad with me anywhere, including the beach and more! They fit perfectly and have an adjustable velcro strap making them easy to hide under any outfit! You’ll thank me for recommending these!!
Side note: These come in a menstrual size as well. However, I prefer the “lower back and hip” ones because they cover a larger portion of my pelvis and therefore provide heat to a greater area of pain.
