Style your way through the menopause

With Angelina Jolie revealing that she is going through early menopause many of us were shocked. “I am in menopause,” said 39-year-old actor Angelina Jolie yesterday when announcing her recent operation to remove her ovaries due to a high risk of cancer.

 Perhaps it shouldn’t be headline grabbing news when a woman in the public eye talks about a common hormonal change that every female goes through – but that shows how rarely and honestly the menopause is discussed.

 It is estimated that 8 out of 10 women, most commonly around the age of 52, will experience symptoms like hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, insomnia and depression, and it can last for as long as 14 years.

Hot flushes and sweating can really get in the way of your day and can prevent women doing the things they love, so follow our top three tips to styling out the sweats and making it through the menopause in once piece!
Invest in some stylish temperature controlling clothing 

This pastel blue knot-front dress from Attune womenswear is designed to flatter, with knot detailing at the bust line and shaping at the back.
It has a gathered cuff and Liberty print trim on the sleeve for added interest.

The Attune collection is made using TENCEL® yarn - a completely natural fibre which has revolutionary properties due to its unique structure.

Its unparalleled wicking ability allows TENCEL® to absorb 50% more moisture than cotton, keeping you cool and comfortable.

In contrast, synthetics like polyester don’t absorb moisture into the fibre.

Price £95

Take a natural supplement to relieve the symptoms

They are naturally occurring substances that have similar effects to oestrogen.

A study carried out on the double strength formula has shown to reduce hot flushes and night sweats by 75% The same study also demonstrated that supplementing with Promensil Double Strength can reduce anxiety and depression by improving menopause symptoms Promensil Double Strength (80mg), £29.99 (30) or £49.99 (90), available from Boots
