When we started putting together the Menopause Registry over three years ago, it was very different. There were still cotton pajamas and fans and wine glasses, but there weren’t that many menopause specific products. Not anymore! Thanks to a flood of new companies on the market, there are more products catering to our specific needs than ever.You can breathe a sigh of relief. The 2022 Menopause Registry is here.
Let’s start in the medicine cabinet. Beauty and wellness has gotten more technologically advanced than ever. Start your mornings off with a Ritual vitamin (maybe out of this cute pillbox). Turn on your magnifying mirror, and don’t be afraid to pluck with some Tweezerman tweezers! When it comes to your skin, the name of the game is moisture. I’ve started using oils like Vintner’s Daughter’s cult-favorite face oil, OS-01’s brand new topical supplement, and Augustinus Bader’s the Cream.
Aches, pains, your vision’s not what it used to be, hot flashes – some days your body feels like it’s getting beat up. You’d do anything just to be comfortable. We get it. As far as aches and pains go, meet your new best friend: the Hypervolt. It’s a massage gun you can work yourself on any sore spots. It’s not as great as a full-fledged spa experience, but it’s the next best thing. The Kindra Bath Soak and Sagely CBD cream also help soothe any muscle pain.
It’s time to switch out your cotton pillowcases for smooth, cool silk pillowcases like these ones from Slip. The cooling properties are a godsend, and the fact that they minimize frizz is just a bonus. And if you’re giving your bed linens an upgrade, your pjs should get one too! The Prima Sleep Set from Cuyana will have you sleeping like a baby, and I love the Bonne Nuit shirtdress from La Ligne.
When hot flashes get especially hellish, fight back with a fan! This portable neck fan sounds silly, but is a godsend. Kindra’s Cool Down Mist is a cooling spray that starts working instantly. Stock up on reading glasses, especially when they’re as affordable and chic as these Ryan Simkhai ones in a trendy cobalt blue.
The 2022 Menopause Registry is about more than just slathering on creams. Menopause can be frustrating. Duh. Your body and emotions can turn on a dime. It’s important to keep morale up. Of course, there are several ways to do this. You can have a little solo fun with this chic Vesper vibrator from Violet Grey, get inspired by the words of Norma Kamali in her memoir, or be prepared for bad days with a silicone wine glass holder for your bath or shower.
Finally, the Tom Ford F****** Fabulous candle. Because sometimes you just need to be reminded
