Another potential trigger for some migraine sufferers is physical overexertion or exercising in the heat, so running along the beach or playing volleyball could possibly lead to head pain for some.

For many people, the smell of a favorite sunscreen is synonymous with a day at the beach. But for some, perfumes and fragrances can be migraine triggers. If this applies to you, consider a fragrance-free brand.
