Summer is here! No matter how much we enjoy going to the beach or eating mangoes, one thing we all detest is the heat and sweat. Following are six easy ways one can adopt to beat the summer heat.

  1. Wear loose-fitting clothes to allow air circulation and keep you cool. Avoid using dark colours as they are good absorbers of heat. Light colours are very soothing in summers. Keep your hair covered with a hat or a scarf.
  2. Drink, drink, drink… plenty of water and fresh fruit juices. Do not wait until you’re thirsty to drink. Water helps regulate your body temperature and compensates the fluid loss from your body due to sweating. The best part is that its zero calories! 🙂
  3. Stay indoors as much as possible. Never forget to apply a high SPF sun block about 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. Do not forget to protect your lips. They are often neglected. Apply a lip balm with some SPF. Also apply sun screen to your feet if you are wearing sandals.
  4. Bath daily at least once to stay fresh but avoid shampooing your hair daily or switch to a mild shampoo (such as baby shampoo).Image
  5. Get plenty of sleep and eat light, nutritious and non-fatty foods. Consume foods such as fruits and vegetables that are high in water content.
  6. Use minimal make-up. Keep your face clean and fresh.
Got any more tips to stay cool and protected on a hot summer day? Do let me know how you beat the heat. Remember, sharing is caring! 🙂
