AVOID SUMMER MIGRAINES

June 22nd, 2010

Flowers are abundant but so are allergies, bright sunlight and hot days causing dehydration and triggers for some migraine sufferers.

Fragrance loaded summer products like sunscreens and heat stress, especially during exercise, are important to avoid if you are susceptible to these triggers.

Stay well hydrated, especially if outdoors by drinking 6-8 ounces of water every hour.

Try to purchase fragrance free products when possible to avoid these kinds of triggers.

Bright sunlight can often lead to migraines in photosensitive sufferers so a good pair of polarized sunglasses can really help.
