Hot flashes

Bothered by frequent hot flashes? A natural remedy that may help to shorten their duration and nip them in the bud include placing a few dabs of peppermint oil on the back of your neck. And because even a meager rise in your body’s core temperature can trigger a hot flash, keep cool by:

1. Drinking lots of ice water. Besides reducing their duration, sipping on ice water may even help you from getting some hot flashes to begin with. Remember, it's all about improving from the inside-out.

2. Dressing in layers. So that you can remove a layer when you begin to feel warm.

3. Using a fan to move the air around. This is especially helpful when you sleep.
