Mother Nature comes knocking at our door every month… with a gift, you can say, a gift that we secretly love and hate at the same time. It’s something that we get used to dealing with at a certain age of our life… However, sometimes we feel extremely run-down, gloomy (all those hormones running about, confusing us as well, come on hormones!) and weird like we’re out of our skin. Oh, and let’s not forget about the cramps. Cramps are the worst and they bring about the worst in all females, pretty much.
Wondering if there are better ways of dealing with your periods? At Beauty Hooked, we’ve compiled 11 hacks that will for sure smoothen out the process of your next period!

Hack #2 – Hot Water Bottle
Sanitary napkins, the food you crave, Netflix and a hot water bottle is all one needs to survive the week of torture… A hot water bottle is guaranteed to bring you comfort, so please invest in one.
Hack #3 – Mission Pad-possible
All you desire is to change the sanitary napkin you are wearing, but you’re in a room filled with people.
You’re probably wondering how to take a pad with you to the toilet, without anybody seeing…
It honestly seems like a mission for Tom Crusie, but trust us, it’s not!
Keep your sanitary napkins in a little pouch as seen above, so you simply have to slide that out of your bag instead of the sanitary napkin itself.
Hack #4 – Period Acne
Use products which contain salicylic corrosive and benzoyl peroxide, because they help peel your skin and they also absorb and excess oil from your face giving you fewer pimples.
