4 Ways To Beat The Heat This Summer

Ah, summer. As the Northern Hemisphere approaches the hottest time of the year, many of us have a problem- the heat. As the years keep getting warmer, we want to be able to stay cool in the face of blazing heat. So, how do we manage this?

1. Water

One of the best ways to beat the heat is a well known trick: drink water. Staying hydrated is vital, especially since the heat makes you sweat and lose water. To make your water even more tasty and refreshing, you can add lemon, lime, mint, or even fruit.

2. Sunscreen

The sun is also bad for the skin. Remember to always apply sunscreen, even when just stepping outside, as the sun can lead to bad sunburn, and continued exposure to UV rays is linked to skin cancer.

3. Stop Sweat

Use an antiperspirant, and apply it at night for it to be more effective. Wear loose, natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton.

4. Snack on some cold treats

Eat something cold, like ice cream, or frozen candy bars. These will help you keep nice and cool.
