With all the fun and entertainment that comes with summer, one mustn't forget about the risk and problems that sun damage can bring. Be it for you or for your whole family make sure you are prepared to tackle the heat.
We care about you and about making your summer more enjoyable, so we have compiled some handy tips to beat the heat and keep the sunny side up!
One of the best tip for summer is to stay cool from the inside out. Drink plenty of water. It is very important to keep yourself hydrated especially in summer. Water loss can make you tired and cause heat exhaustion.
KEEP IT COOL
It is a good idea to start your day early during summer. Try getting the strenuous tasks done earlier in the day before it gets blazing hot outside. Try doing the Intense physical exercises during the cooler parts of the day. When looking for exercises during hot days swimming can a cooler option. Another recommendation is to always look at the weather forecast so you could plan your day even better.
GIFT YOURSELF AN AIR COOLER! IF YOU HAVEN'T YET?!
An air cooler is a smart investment. We call it an invested because air coolers not only provides you with powerful cooling in those scorching hot days but they are affordable and these are amazingly light on electricity. Air coolers use significantly less power when compared to a conventional AC. So you can use it for long hours without having to worry about you electricity bills. They are also environmentally friendly so you do not have to think about the side-effects of using an air cooler on your health or the environment. You can use the portable units outdoors, these are perfect for you lapas.
It is better to avoid heavy meals on a hot day it will end up making you lazy, tired and sleepy. Our body generates more heat to burn a big meal like that which will leave you feeling hotter and certainly uncomfortable. Rather go for a light meal and include cooling food in our diet, which will help you feel cool from the inside.
You can help your body stay cooler by wearing the right clothes for summer. Wear lightweight, light-colored loose-fitting, long-sleeved clothing to protect your skin from excessive sun damage. Light coloured clothes do not absorb heat and thus help you keep feeling cooler. Avoid heavy, heat absorbing, dark coloured clothes they will absorb heat and make you feel even hotter when all you are trying to do is to stay cool. Some heat reflective colours like pastel, white and beige are good cooling colours.
KEEP OUT THE SUN
Make sure you keep the heat out as much as possible. Keep the curtains and blind closed when you are in and even when you are out. This will hamper the sun's hot rays from heating your rooms and windows.
DITCH THE STOVE
One of the worst things to do on an extremely hot day is to stand in front of the stove and cook. How is that for a sauna?
Not only that, using ovens and stoves on a hot day makes a home feel even hotter. The solution is to just Braai! Everybody loves a braai and if that saves you and your home from getting even hotter then you can just say "aye, aye!"
