Beat the Heat and Stay Cool!

Some more tips to beat the heat this season!

  • Take at least 2-3 showers a day to stay cool. Add few drops of eau de cologne or fragranced essential oil in your bathtub or bucket water like peppermint, rose, sandalwood, lavender, ylang-ylang or jasmine to feel fresh and energized throughout the day!

  • Create a soothing ambience in your bathroom. Light some scented candles, put on some light music and soak yourself in a tub of cold water for that ultimate relaxing effect. Use a loofah/scrubber and a soft, moisturizing bodywash to exfoliate dead cells off your skin. Sweat and extra secretion of sebum during summer makes our skin appear dull and lifeless. Exfoliate 2-3 days a week to reveal a radiant and youthful skin free from pimples, blackheads and pigmentation.

  • Avoid spicy and heavy meals. Instead take lesser proportions of healthy food in short intervals to stay fit and active throughout the day. It is imperative to keep a light stomach during summers to keep lethargy at bay. Do not forget to drink plenty of water, fresh juices and lime water.

  • Wear loose, natural fabrics and light colors to look and feel fresh. Dark colors absorb more heat. Stick to cotton and avoid synthetics, silks and other materials.

  • Use a light, floral fragrance to feel fresh throughout the day. Carry one in your handbag and keep tissue papers handy to remove excess oil and sweat.

  • Splash your face with icy cold water whenever you can. Alternatively, you can rub an ice cube on your face for that super cooling effect.

  • Wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 or more during the day. If you are using makeup, apply a water-based foundation, light powder and waterproof eyeliner and mascara.

  • Go for a swim if you can. Swimming is a great stress buster and cools you off instantly.
Think Cool and Stay Fit!
