  WAYNE, N.J., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- For many active, on-the-go women, menopause symbolizes uncomfortable and disruptive symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats. But according to celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang and nationally-acclaimed menopause expert Karen Giblin of the Red Hot Mamas, feeling confident both inside and out during these menopausal moments could include "hot flash proofing" your wardrobe, wearing "sweat-free" makeup and finding the right treatment option for managing your symptoms.

"I work with a number of female celebrities in their early fifties who are smart, successful and above all, sexy -- after all, fifty is the new forty -- so I''m always struck by how hot flashes can really jolt their confidence," said Yang, who has had decades of experience making celebrities like Ellen Barkin and Rita Wilson look cool and fresh under the glaring red carpet sun and on sets with brutal overhead lighting. "Dressing in cool, loose layers and selecting make-up that is natural-looking but virtually sweat proof, such as waterproof mascara, are just some of the many techniques that I share with my clients."

In the U.S., seventy-five percent of women report some symptoms during menopause, which can include hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. With many women on the go suffering from these symptoms, more and more women are talking about their experiences. Earlier this year, the Red Hot Mamas introduced the "Red Hot Flashbacks Contest" and asked women to share their funny, unforgettable and frustrating stories to illustrate how they''ve faced menopause head on with grace and humor. Hundreds of vibrant women from across the country shared their stories. The winner, artist Donna Sherry Boggins of Temecula, California, received a personalized menopause makeover at Bliss Spa as well as advice to help manage her "Red Hot" moments with Yang and Giblin by sharing what the judges of the contest deemed to be the very best "Red Hot Flashback" moment.

"I was always nervous about experiencing a hot flash during an important moment, whether it was a meeting for work or dinner with friends," explains Red Hot Flashbacks winner Boggins. "In fact, once when I was traveling to an important meeting, I had to re-do my whole wardrobe because I was sweating so much! I had brought three high powered suits for my meeting. Wardrobe bag in hand, I settled into my airline seat destined for Boston. Then it happened. I began to sweat from the top of my head down to my toes. My red power suit became a wet suit! I had no idea what to do! My makeover with Jeanne Yang helped me to not only manage my menopause ''in style'' but also avoid being caught ''off guard'' during a hot flash moment."

"With women postponing marriage, on their second marriage, or caring for children still at home, women in their fifties are redefining what this age means on a daily basis. How they handle menopause experiences like hot flashes is a perfect example of this trend," Giblin said. "They''re living proof that your fifties is a time to shine, not suffer, and making small adjustments to their wardrobe and lifestyle can help. Through our menopause makeover, we''re bringing attention to this issue to help women better cope with this life transition and understand that they can talk to their doctor about the many options available for managing symptoms."

Managing Menopause in Style

Over many years working with celebrities, Yang has perfected her beauty regimen for women who need to "cool down" especially women who are going through menopause and suffering from hot flashes. Some of her favorite tips include:

-- Wear dark clothing because it slenderizes and also hides sweat. -- Select cotton, linen and other light fabrics that are cool and dry quickly. Silk might feel wonderful on the skin, but it is not as breathable as other fabrics and can make you sweat. -- Use blotting papers are the perfect make-up touch-up to get rid of the shine from sweat. The blotting papers are no bigger than a credit card and are easy to throw in your purse. Only powder the T-zone area, avoid powdering your cheeks and around your eyes as they can make wrinkles appear more prominent. -- Carry a nice elastic hair band with a decorative design. If you begin to sweat, pull the hair off your neck in a nice low bun or ponytail, which can look chic with a decorative hair accessory. Another option is to carry a headband, which can help hide damp hair. -- Invest in great waterproof make-up, especially mascara, which will not run and will stay intact throughout the day.

Managing Menopause

In addition to "hot flash proofing" one''s wardrobe, there are a number of treatment options available to help women manage their menopausal symptoms everyday.

"Women now have more choices than ever before for menopause relief so it is important they talk to their doctors before making treatment decisions," says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, an obstetrician/gynecologist and clinical professor of medicine at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT. "Hormone therapy options, such as ANGELIQ?, can provide rapid relief from moderate to severe hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness associated with menopause." Unlike progestins found in other therapies, drospirenone most closely resembles and acts like the hormone progesterone made by a woman''s body.
